Jollydollyshop started by accident, necessity being the mother of invention. As the mother of four girls, I have always been driven mad by dolls’ clothes that are impossible for children to put on (or take off) by themselves.
My clothes and accessories are all CE tested and everything but the tent is machine washable at 40 degrees. They have also been well and truly tested by some vigorous children, so I know they will stand up to much play, and have the testers seal of approval. I have aimed to design and make clothes that help children be independent in their play.
My clothes are available to buy on Etsy.com – look for Jollydollyshop. You can buy from me direct using paypal, feel free to call or email me. If you live in Somerset, I am at The Frome Independent Market on the 1st Sunday of every month, and my clothes can be bought from The Vintage shop and Tearoom in Wells.
All my fashion doll clothes patterns have been tested on our own long suffering Sindy, Barbie and Princess dolls .However, because these dolls have been made in so many variations over the years, it is impossible to guarantee that they will fit every doll ever made! They do fit our jumble of vintage, new and hand me down fashion dolls, and it’s nice to swap and share amongst them.
I also make items for adult (age 14+) collectors, and one off customised dolls. I also customise dolls to look like people as gifts- people give me photos or ideas of the outfit they associate with their friend/ relative and I do my best to recreate their look, hairstyle, accessories etc! Feel free to contact me for details.
