We've had so much rain on the weekends that yard sales have not happened to much of a degree. So>>>

glad you rescued these lovely gals. So lucky to have a dad who is so handy!
These are some of my older makeover gals. I rescued them from a yard sale where they'd had the backs of their legs slit open and the bend leg mechanisms cut and removed. Made no sense to me either.
A few years ago, my dad and I rehabbed these dolls and made inserts that would go into their legs (which were then glued shut) and firm them up to the point where they could at least be displayed.
Having prowled the Barbie aisle the last week or so looking for clothes for modern dolls has made me appreciate these fashions a little bit more than I used to because honestly? There is very little like this out there today!
