Goldilocks – a blast from the past

2 Oct

My first doll to tell you about is Goldilocks, my own play doll from several decades ago. More than playing with this doll (and the fact that her hair could be lengthened and shortened, I have no idea what make she is), I remember more clearly the clothes that my mum made for her.

I remember her knitting outfits for her in secret for my xmas. My mum is a wonderful knitter and a very accomplished seamstress. Way back then (and now) her skills way surpassed what I can achieve and I will always strive to make garments as beautifully as she did.

Goldilocks was recently returned to me (from where she lurked in my mum’s attic) as I have always secretly harboured ambitions to make clothes for her myself.

Unfortunately, despite my new found desire to clothe dolls, poor Goldilocks remains without a new outfit of her own!! (A serious omission that will have to be rectified.)
