Doll restoration

 So I was given this poor little lady to restore as she had fallen apart, literally!  She is a Denys Fisher Jennie doll, a tiny little lady at 7 1/2 inches.

After cleaning off the sticky stuff (seems she was glued at some point), I then set about restringing her.

Removing the old elastic which had perished proved to be easier than I expected.  There was a tiny holed plastic pieces inside a tiny cup which the elastic was threaded through.  Could have used a finer gauge elastic cord to replace the original, but I went with what I had at hand and it seemed to work pretty well.

Very pleased with the outcome! 

Dressed in her original brownies uniform, Jennie is looking a lot more put together!  I’m busy now sewing some new clothes for this dear little doll.

Feel free to comment or contact me if you need advice on restringing dolls.  I really enjoyed this little challenge.

Until next time!
Love Shari
