Custom dress for Rosetta
I had originally tried to sell the pair of dolls but the buyer I had found decided not to get them. I was going to re-donate them but my little girl liked them. I decided I would go ahead and try to restore them. The Silver Mist doll is in better condition then Rosetta. I bought Silver Mist's original dress from a member of a doll group I belong to. It should arrive in a few days.
The doll still had its original tights, however there was a little tear on the seam. It was easy to repair.
I made her a tutu dress out of tulle and used a scrap piece of sequined black fabric to create the top. The Winx accessory pack (pictured above) is another Goodwill find. I gt it for .$50. I removed the peg that holds the wings in place on a Winx doll and glued the wings to Rosetta's back. Once the wings were in place, I dressed her. She is wearing the black boots from the Novi Star fashion pack (another Goodwill find, $1.50)
Overall, I think she turned out well. I can't decide if I like her skirt long or if I should shorten it. I guess I will let my daughter decide. I know that she will be surprised in the morning when she sees the finished Rosetta.
