About

Historically accurate and realistic 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 dolls when my eldest daughter was 4. What started as a hobby 10 years ago has since evolved into a full-time business. And I consider myself lucky because I can do what I love!

I specialize in creating patterns for historically accurate and detailed contemporary outfits. Lots of my outfits are inspired by my favourite TV series and books. I am passionate about the history of fashion so my patterns are always thoroughly researched and I try not to do any shortcuts unless absolutely necessary. I also create knitting patterns for detailed and well scaled sweaters, cardigans and alike, which usually require knitting needles in smaller sizes (1.5mm and 2 mm).

My favourite models are A Girl for All Time, American Girl and Carpatina boys. I also occasionally make outfits for Sasha, Gotz, Zwergnase Junior, Kidz'n'cats, Tonner dolls and also some BJDs (mainly Iplehouse).

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