Once upon a time there was a dolly named Josephine. She was born in the 1950's in the well known & very popular Pedigree factory.
Josephine was no ordinary doll - no sitting around just looking pretty for her! She is a walking doll who would happily walk along with her Little Girl, hand in hand, while moving her head from side to side taking in the view & she has very pretty eyes indeed as they also move from side to side in a most flirtatious manner!
Some years later she was given to a new Little Girl called Tracey who looked after her carefully for many years. One day Tracey decided that it was time for Josephine to move on & asked Jayne (who is really just a Little Girl in a Big Girl's body!) if Josephine could come & live with her.
Of course Jayne was delighted to accept & so Josephine waved a fond farewell to Tracey & went home with Jayne.
However, Josephine was a little sad as over the years she had lost her clothing & longed for a new dress. Poor Josephine felt rather cold & exposed with no clothing on!
She did cheer up though when Jayne told her that she had many years design & clothing making experience as well as a large stash of pretty fabrics suitable for dolly dresses & that a new dress would take no time at all to make.
They rummaged through the fabrics - florals & checks & spots - but Josephine really couldn't decide. She whispered to Jayne that her favourite colour was blue & that she really loved puppies.
"Aha!", Jayne exclaimed, "I have just the thing for you!"
Josephine's pretty eyes sparkled "That's just what I want!"
Cath Kidston's Stanley fabric was the perfect choice.
So, out came the tape measure, pins, scissors & trusty sewing machine & with a few snip, snip, snips a new outfit started to take shape.
Firstly, of course, a new pair of panties was in order to cover her modesty....
Jayne also managed to find a supplier of vintage dolly shoes & this bright red pair look rather fetching.....
A pretty co-ordinating ribbon was found for her hair....
Josephine is feeling very happy once again!
Off she goes for a little walk to show off her new dress!
