Baby's New Look, Still Looking For a New Name!

Okay, so I was going to wait to post this and reveal her new look with her new name, but many people have been entering boy names. Which is fine, and the sweet doll may in fact be a boy, BUT I had different plans. lol! She is definitely a girl now! I worked on her today and I'm very happy with the outcome!

The sweet gal needed some clothes....

So I bought this dress from a lovely seller on Ebay for just $2! It was a bit too short (and plain), so I altered it.

Keep in mind, I'm not a sewer, but I added some lace at the bottom to lengthen it, some embroidery, a sweet vintage flower patch, and finally pinned on some vintage Millinery flowers. The Tim Holtz Mini Pins worked GREAT for this! I had also bleached the dress prior to sewing to fade the color.

She still needed some thing, so I attached a pair of feather angel wings with a simple pearl straight pin!

I'm still looking for a name for her, and there is still time to enter the contest. You can leave your name here or on the "Contest" post. I'll be reading them all! Also, feel free to re-enter if you submitted a boy name. There's no going back now :).

This contest is now CLOSED! Thank you to all who entered!

  3. Hi Kristin! I just adore your babie doll.... I love what you did with the dress too. Do we leave a name here?

  4. Hi Kristin,
    Isn't that doll, "Betsy Wetsy"?
    does she have a speaker on her chest?.. She is precious.
    If you need clothing .. I have tons. Did you see the doll I found at an Estate sale, Shirley Temple!
    I have a background in dolls, Perhap I can help you?
    Hugs, Darlene

  5. Well,for someone who thinks they aren't a "sewer", you did a wonderful job transforming her dress into a one-of-a-kind dress for a one-of-a-kind girl!! Her "new" dress is lovely!!

  6. You "worked" on her and now she's a girl?

  7. She is SO sweet and looks all ready for a party now. She looks asthough she might be a Betty.
