Clothes Make a Difference


I got this composition/cloth boudoir doll today. She's in great shape! But, her outfit does not flatter her at all.

I turned up the brim of her hat. That made such a difference. The hat still has the store tag in it (see photo, below). Click on the photo of the store tag, below, to view Wikipedia information about Joseph Horne Co. 

I tied up her crocheted collar, and then, after much consideration, I removed her skirt. It is lined and the material is heavy so it weighed her down quite a bit. It also was not sewn on her very nicely and has a bulky zipper. 



She actually looks better without the skirt. I'll have to find an appropriate costume for her that matches her original hat. 


There is a web site called "The Department Store Museum." Click on the name to view the link to their web site.


This is how I received the doll. As you can see, her outfit doesn't flatter her at all.

Boudoir Doll Sighting - The Film "Speedy" - Harold Lloyd - 1928

Harold Lloyd, Ann Christy in "Speedy" 1928 - boudoir doll given away as prize at Coney Island.








Unfortunately, this YouTube film clip has the wrong music and repeats scenes and has scenes out of context so it doesn't represent the movie correctly. The Coney Island part of this movie, the way it originally was, was great! You might want to rent the DVD - Netflix has it. Anyway, boudoir doll starts at 3:54.........
