Keepsake Bridesmaid Doll
This bridesmaid doll is a personalised keepsake dressed in a way that replicates that worn on the day of the wedding in question.
As is the case with the wedding doll shown in a separate listing, this doll is created from information supplied by the purchaser. She would make a special thank you gift for a bridesmaid or might even bought as a souvenir to accompany a keepsake wedding doll. The main image shows this doll beside the photograph from which she was created. The doll shown here is an example. Your doll would be based on your photograph.
These dolls are display items – each one is approximately 40cms/16ins tall. Like the boudoir dolls of the 1920s they are usually kept on a bed or chair in the bedroom. (Read blog article about these dolls here)

Keepsake bridesmaid dolls are made to order. The basic doll is handmade in calico and measures approximately 40cm tall.
The main aim is to re-create the clothing, hairstyle etc. of the original. The doll ‘s face is a standard design. Accessories such as bouquets are created as closely as possible given the much smaller scale. The colour of the doll’s eyes, hair and skin can be chosen from a limited range. Although choices have to be made to complete ordering these are able to be changed before work begins when I contact you for further details.
The date of the wedding can be embroidered on the doll’s knickers if desired. The doll also has an Ooak Gifts charm sewn on a garter around her leg (see photo).
The doll’s clothing is not made to be removed.
If the customer has some remnants of the original fabrics for the clothing in question this may be suitable to use provided it is not too thick. Many fabrics don’t lend themselves readily to creating garments on a much smaller scale and can be too bulky. If a suitable fabric is not provided by the customer, I will endeavour to find an alternative that’s appears as close to the original as possible.
Neither the doll nor her clothing should be washed. Should cleaning ever be required this should be specialist dry cleaning.
These dolls take many hours’ work and require at least 3 weeks between order and dispatch.
