Sewing New Dress
My sewing machine has been busily humming away making new Valentine dresses for my Toni dolls. Well, as fortune would have it today is Valentines and only one dress is finished. So, I will have to make the display with only one new dress. The new dress is a little long on this Toni. The Toni I was making it for is not completely restored yet. The Toni wearing the dress was purchased several years ago at a flea market for $5.00. The dealer knew she was a Toni, but in such bad condition. I have completely repainted her as she was filthy, had scuff marks all over and smeared with batches of silver paint. Now she proudly models her valentine bag and new dress.
