Elegant outfits for dolls

Hello and welcome to my shop!

My name is Olga. My mum taught me sewing, knitting and crocheting when I was very young and I have been creating lots of outfits for my dolls for as long as I can remember myself.

I returned to the hobby when my eldest daughter was 4 and I bought her the first big doll (Carpatina). A few years later I got our first American Girl dolls (one for my daughter and one for myself) and since then the creativity bug has never left our house.

Now we have quite an extensive collection of dolls and I make outfits for all of them - A Girl for All Time, Sasha, Kidz'n'Cats, Maru and Friends, Australian Girl, Bonnie & Pearl, American Girl, Gotz, Tonner dolls and also some BJDs (mainly Iplehouse and Bo Bergemann).

I love historical and elegant contemporary outfits, so that's what I specialize in. I prefer using natural fibers - cotton, silk, wool, but also use some polyester fabrics when it suits a particular project. All seams on my doll clothes are finished on a serger. I never use velcro for fastening - I simply don't like the way it looks and also damages dolls' hair. Depending on a project and a size of a doll I use zippers, buttons, snaps and hooks for fastening.

Also, I love realistic looking doll clothes, so I always strive to achieve that realistic and authentic look for my creations. That means that for historical outfits I would try to make them historically accurate and not to simplify them whenever possible, and for contemporary ones I would always look for fabric with small prints, thin yarns, tiny buttons and would use thin knitting needles and crochet hooks.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions. I would be happy to hear from you!
