    thanks... Well they are all differrent sizes. I guess the smallest is the German repro in green (short hair) she is about 16". Sharin and Tracie are both 24" and Kelly is the largest by far. She is wearing a 12 month size baby dress my GD wore.

    I made most of the clothes as well - but not all.

    How beautiful you are so talented! I love that you made all the dolls look like your daughters and made their clothes as well. Little 'spooky' looking at the girl in the tartan dress as it looks so much like me when I was a child!!!! My father was Scottish and there was always a lot of tartan around in our family! Thankyou for shareing I have loved seeing these.

    Beautiful dolls !!! I collect some too and have made dresses,petticoats,bloomers and such. I put some away, I'm getting a little tired of dusting them. My cats like to rub against the dresses. Mine aren't worth anything, I put all of them together, except one, she's behind glass, some were gifts. Smaller stand-up ones are behind glass also.

    I just wrapped all mine and put them in storage or I'd show photos. I made porcelain dolls for quite some years. I've got gobs of molds and 2 kilns in the garage. I made quite a few as gifts, sold some and had the bright idea my daughter would love them. She told me to take them out of her room because they were "watching" her about 6 years ago. She never liked or played with dolls:< So, now they'll rest in the attic...

    I should really sell my doll molds to clear up some room!!
