Sewn Doll Bodies

  • I have had to make some changes in a few of the original body designs.
  • Not all of them were workable and others way off the mark.
  • Some modifications were necessary, but most bodies will be the original artist’s design, and changes were only made when the body didn’t work with the porcelain pieces.
  • Some doll heads also work on other artist’s bodies, so If you are not using the original arms, legs or shoulderplate/breastplate for a doll, please indicate the change in parts so that a body can be sewn to use them.
  • Also, let me know if the doll is going to be African American.
  • All dolls other than African American will be sewn in Ivory colored fabric.
  • Most dolls can be ordered with a pvc tube up the center of the body so that they may use a stand with a dowel rod.
  • Adult male dolls will automatically come with the tube, but if you wish it added to another doll, add $2.50 to the price.
  • Most bodies are made from either bottom weight twill or broadcloth, and not stuffed, but will come with craft wire through the arm and leg casings.
  • Dolls requiring bear joints will come with those installed.
  • Ballerina bodies are made from a sturdy stretch material.
  • Doll pellets are available on the site for dolls requiring them. (One 1½ lb. bag is enough to complete a 19 inch Sugar Britches).
  • All bodies are made to order, and orders will take two or three days to fill.
  • Customers will be notified when their order is shipped.
