This little lady, sweetie~pies, is a very special dolly indeed. I have had Jane since I was about two years old, so she and I have been companions for around 48 years now :-)
Poor Jane suffered from my tender ministrations somewhat during my childhood, so she no longer has eyelashes, nor her two little front teeth and I bit off one of her fingers ~ oh, the shame of it! Mind you, I did try to make amends on the finger front when I was older ~ I sewed over the hole ;-) Jane is quite large, about 23" tall, and wears size 0-3 months baby clothes so it's really easy to find pretty dresses for her to wear ~ and, my loves, it's the perfect excuse to still buy baby clothes!
She lives upstairs on a chair in Adrian's and my bedroom, along with two teddies I have had since I was a baby (so they are even older than Jane ~ I will introduce you to the boys another day).
I have always thought that Jane was quite realistic for a child's doll. She has lovely 'folds and creases' like a real baby would :-)
Here are some photos of Jane modelling a few of her clothes ~ real baby clothes, of course ;-)
This Mexican dress is lovely but sadly it is too large for Jane (and too small for a larger doll that I will be introducing soon!). Still, Jane likes to play in it :-)
This is such a pretty pink velvet dress ~ and Jane loves it, too :-)
A dear friend sent me some baby clothes for Jane ~ here she is in a cosy body suit...
...and here in a matching jacket and pair of trousers. I will have to take in the waist of the trousers at some point as they ~ of course! ~ have been made to accommodate a nappy LOL Jane doesn't wear nappies so the trousers are a tad too large, my loves!
And here she is carefully balancing on one leg to show off the booties which 'Auntie Irene' also sent :-)
As I already said, Jane spends much of her time on a chair in Adrian's and my bedroom, playing with her two little teddies. Soon, though, she will have a companion ~ more about that another day, sweetie~pies ;-)
