Adventures in Rebodying -Poor Midge 

18 Apr

Well, not specifically this Midge, but I still remember the repaint of another version of this doll that got wrecked by sealant (although being honest it wasn’t great to start with). Still, I got another version, rebodied her and made her an outfit. I think she looks great, although admittedly this is about the third set of pictures I’ve taken and the first lot I’m happy with. What a comedy of errors! 

By the way, I think I looked her up once but I can’t remember who she is and I’m too busy/ lazy to do it again tonight. ID ideas gratefully accepted, thanks 🙂

    Very cute! I love Midge! Did you knit her top? It is very nice.

      Thankyou Catherine! No, I sewed her top out of a sock (a new one!). I find that socks are great for making properly scaled knits for dolls, although they can be a bit fiddly at the seams as the material frays fast after cutting.

        You could try cutting an extra large seam allowance, sewing the seams and then cutting off the extra fabric.

        Thankyou Barb – yes I used to do that and it was much better – I wonder why I stopped??? (Got out of practice and forgot probably haha)

    I think this was Surf City Midge but please don’t quote me on that.

    I love the top! What a cute Midge. Wish I had more of her. I only have one Midge!

      Hi Teresa! I have a few more than that, but I could always do with more too 🙂

    The Top is so cute, well worth fiddling with fraying socks. She is Surf City Midge, CuriousRetroRebel is right.

      Thankyou Andrea! For liking the top and the ID comfirmation – you’re such a wizard with these things 🙂
