Review of Several Etsy Purchases

Over the past few months I’ve made several different purchases on Etsy.  Some from people I’ve dealt with before, but several from places I’ve recently discovered.  I’m happy to say that I’ve had no disappointments and I wanted to share these recent finds with everyone else!

My first purchase was from Quality Doll Clothes.  I’ve actually purchased from this seller before, but never got around to reviewing what I bought.  I was really excited when I saw this romper in her listings and thought it was just the perfect thing for Kit!  Don’t you agree?

On this particular outfit she used buttons and a snap for the closure, but some of her pieces do have Velcro.  The fit on this was great and the workmanship was top notch.

Next up is this cute outfit from Silly Monkey.  My new girl needed some new clothes!  These were separates but I absolutely fell in love with this top because it’s very similar to one I have for myself.

The top fits great and closes with Velcro.

The jeans are very basic, no back pockets or front pockets.  They are made from a stretch denim, so they are much easier to get on than some other jeans I’ve purchased.

I wanted a pink gingham dress for some reason.  There weren’t a lot of them out there, but when I saw this one, I knew it was just what I was looking for.  It came from Nanna Jerrie’s Creations.

It’s a very simple dress, but very well done.  Fit is great on it.

Hair bow was included too!

Last but certainly not least is this adorable dress from Six Reasons.  I loved the colors in it and the options of wearing it with or without the pinafore was a nice bonus.

Here it is without the pinafore.  The belt is removable, it closes with a snap.

The set included a slip as well!

And the pinafore could even be worn as a sundress!

I am very happy with all of these items and I will definitely be purchasing again from all of these sellers.  Be sure to check them out, as well as those on my list of Etsy sellers in the tab above.  I love Etsy and especially the fact that the majority of the sellers are just average people who love making doll clothes.  Shop small!!!

Etsy Find: Rainbow Lily Designs

I have another awesome Etsy shop to tell you about–Rainbow Lily Designs!  I actually purchased something from them a while ago, but just a few weeks ago I picked up something else, and I loved it so much, I decided I needed to tell you about this shop.  She makes a variety of different doll clothing items, but her denim jackets are just awesome!

Here we have Zara and Sophia modeling the two that I have for the gang.  As you can see, the fit is perfect on both of these.  I love all of the little details.  I will note that the button holes do not work, but that is the way that the pattern these are made from is.  (I have the pattern)

Here is a close up of the blue denim jacket:

I love all of the top stitching on this, it is absolutely perfect!  I miss my old Levi’s denim jacket from 20 years ago when I look at this.  I can’t imagine doing all of that and managing to keep it so well lined up.

The top stitching on the back is just as perfect!


Here you can see that all of the inside seams are overcast, making this piece very durable for play.

And a close up of the pink denim jacket:

I fell in love with this jacket the minute I saw it and ordered it immediately. I wouldn’t mind having one just like it in human size!

A picture of the back:

And a shot of the lace yoke. I love the lace accents on this jacket, it gives it a very chic fashionable look.

Be sure to check out Aimee’s shop, she has so many cute pieces. Evil Twin has picked up a piece or two from her, including a denim vest made much like the denim jackets. Love her work and I’m sure I’ll be back for more!

Guest Post: Boy Story Clothes Available On Etsy!

Today’s post is by Sharry from Julie Newman’s 70’s Time Capsule.  Take it away Sharry!

Hi everybody!

You might remember my review comparing Boy Story dolls to other custom made boy dolls. Although Boy Story dolls are really poseable and fun to play with, their overall build is bigger than most American “Boy” type dolls. This of course presents a problem if you want your guy to have different clothes, as the Boy Story folks haven’t started selling separate outfits yet. Well look no further! I have found 2 Etsy sellers who can make clothes to Boy Story specifications. The first is Diane at “Lotsogoodies”. She makes t-shirts, jeans, sweat pants and swim trunks for your Boy Story Dolls! Here’s my Boy Story doll Billy (renamed Marc) in her t-shirts:

I love the sweat pants! They look so comfy, I wish I had a pair

The second is Libby at “Designed4Dolls”. While she doesn’t have any Boy Story items listed, she will happily do custom work upon request! Here is Marc modeling some of her groovy 70s fashions (for my doll blog!):

These 2 sellers are super to work with should you want a different look for your doll. Thanks Flo for allowing me to do another guest post and for supporting Etsy sellers!

So long from Marc and Sharry from Julie Newman’s 70s Time Capsule

Thanks so much Sharry for this information!  I’m always happy to hear about an Etsy seller that is willing to help someone out in the doll community with an unusual request–and as always, shop small!  Plus I have to agree, I wouldn’t mind having a set of those sweats in human size too.  😉
