Ramie Suit for Retro Glam or Gene

SOLD  Thanks! I love this Liz doll!  I put her in her brunette wig for this outfit.  From the waist up, the suit is inspired by a vintage design (pic at end) but I'm not a fan of a-line skirts.  Go big or go pencil.  The double breasted jacket and skirt are made of a dusty rose ramie print and the collar, cuffs, and hat are a cotton pique. The skirt has a back walking slit and the outfit is fully lined in ivory silk/cotton.  The jacket closes with snaps in the front and has a removable self belt.  I should say that this fits Gene bodied dolls but the head of this doll is smaller so the fit of the hat may not be the same.  The jacket, skirt and hat are available for $150 plus $6 shipping in the US.  Email me at if any questions.

Jamieshow Retro Glam Liz Vintage Repro


I was working on a pretty dress yesterday when the mail lady showed up with this beauty that I preordered months ago.  I was never lucky enough to acquire a Jamieshow Gene doll but the new Retro Glam dolls use the Gene body so the fashions fit.  And is she ever gorgeous.  I decided to make this version of vintage Butterick 9365 because I had this cotton lawn fabric that looked just like the picture.  The dress includes a separate tulle petticoat to give the dress it's fullness.  The belt is also a separate piece.  The little hat is gold cotton with a ruffled flower embellishment finishes off this look.  The dress, hat and petticoat are available for $120 plus $6 shipping in the US.  Email me at

Coral Satin Vintage Repro for Gene

SOLD  Thanks!  One of my favorite Facebook pages is Xtabay Vintage Clothing.  So this is my dolly version of a dress they had for sale recently.  The original dress was orange-not my favorite color-so mine is a coral instead.  The fabric is silk charmeuse and the matching lining is silk habotai.  I made the overskirt as a separate piece that slips over the dress and closes in the back with a snap.  In fact, I made the overskirt twice.  My first one was too long and too full in the back and it bugged me.  So it got scrapped but I didn't have to remake all the bows at least.  A little tip:  since I needed three bows of the same size, I cut a small piece of cardboard 3/4" wide, made a line down the center, and used that to wrap my tubing around.  I stitched the ends together and then sewed the "knot" around it.  The dress is raglan style and the sleeves have tiny tucks at the bodice edge like the original.  This dress is available for $140 plus $6 shipping in the US.  Email me at if interested.
