Announcement I wanted to thank all of my customers and those that have shown interest in my shop - especially this past year. It's been a hard year with the unexpected passing of our son in September 2021. I haven't felt like or spent much time in making a lot of items to add to my shop. With that said.....I've decided to Clearance out the baby items, aprons, and home decor. Starting today all those items are on sale. However, I will be adding some new Christmas placemats and potholders in the next week once they are photographed. My plan is to focus on and continue with the doll dresses and all ornaments and kits. I hope all of you enjoy the next two months of holidays coming up: Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year. Thank you again for your patronage.

It took a little while to finally figure out what I was doing wrong, but It is finished! I’ll be making more! It is my favorite of three different patterns that I have been making for gifts.

I have ordered doll dresses from this shop several times, and I am always happy with them! For this dress, the rich solid pink fabric goes quite nicely with the butterfly print of the overskirt. Extra fullness is given to the underskirt with a hidden layer of tulle. This is wonderful as a colonial era outfit or a dress for a princess heading for the castle 🏰! I definitely recommend this shop! 😻

She does an excellent job. Helped me complete my mother’s collection she made almost 50 years ago. She was able to match most of the colors perfectly.

Jeanine kindly agreed to make this dress for me after she had made another like it for another customer. I received it today, and it is stunning 🤩! It could be worn either as a colonial style dress or as a dress for a royal princess. This outfit is picture perfect with the use of dainty flowers on a pink background. There are white bow embellishments where the overskirt is gathered, and pink satin flowers decorate the bodice and each sleeve. The underskirt is given extra fullness with a layer of tulle hidden underneath. This truly looks like a gown from a fairy tale. I am so happy 😃 with this purchase! I have ordered from this shop on other occasions, and I definitely recommend it. Lovely, romantic gowns for dolls are one of Jeanine’s specialties. She creates masterpieces! Thank you 😊.

The apron fully met its description and I am delighted with it - it will brighten up kitchen duties. Service level high - firstly packed very nicely with tissue and secondly the parcel was dispatched quickly - this service very much appreciated.

The dresses are advertised to fit a standard 11.5” doll ( like Barbie of many decades). They are far too long- 1.5”. Please see photos. The seller contends that they fit 11.5” dolls. Barbies have been 11.5” for decades. The seller does not feel that she is responsible for her mistake in measuring, and expects the buyer to not only pay to receive the faulty items, but also to send back the faulty items. *The above portion of my review was written after I contacted the seller, sent multiple photos, and requested a return. After sending a second group of photos using classic Barbie dolls as models, the seller decided to send a return shipping label, and permit a return with a complete refund.
