Super handmade things to love and play with …

Hello and welcome to the Jollydollyshop.

Jollydollyshop began when I started making clothes for my daughters’ dolls. Like a lot of younger children, my girls found it hard to dress their dolls independently and the clothes they had did not appeal to me as a mother. I decided to design clothes that were easy for them to manage, in a style I was comfortable for my girls to play with, usually inspired by vintage clothes! Other people liked them, and eventually Jollydollyshop began, initially as a children’s range of doll clothes. 

Nostalgia for my own childhood Sindy led me to discover the world of vintage doll collectors. Ten years on and I now make a range of Adult Collector outfits and customise vintage dolls that have seen better days. With the right design and fabric you can create a personality and a back story for a doll that was previously considered unwanted. I love it when a previously unloved attic find gets a new lease of life.

So here I am, with an Etsy shop that sells retro clothes for Sindy, Barbie, Tammy, Ken, Action girl and all the gang. You can find Jollydollyshop on Instagram and Facebook for more photos and general dolly nonsense, and my Etsy shop is always open.
