this is my newest ebay doll, shes from 1957, she came with some clothes but they were very faded and poorly made, so I decided she was in desperate need of a makeover. Yes I'm 37 and I still play with dolls! I bought her because of her face, she resembles a madame alexander cissy doll that I'd trade a pinky toe for I swear I would! I learned how to sew as a child making doll clothes. I made them from a vintage pattern for 18 inch fashion dolls..Fashion dolls were hugely popula in the 50's. The black and white outfit would be for running errands etc. and the aqua would be for like a spring tea or maybe a bridal shower. I made her white lawn petticoats and matching bustier as well, but being shes a lady she can't show them in such a public forum..

I have a doll that I bought at a Flea Market that looks ALOT like yours.  I don't THINK  it's Madame Alexander, but I'll check.  I would love to have a copy of your cloths patterns for this doll.  Would that be possible?  The pics are great...the clothes too.  Very vintage.  Great Job.  By the way, I'm in my 30's too and I love old dolls like this.

Oh, man, dyabolica, you have done a fantastic job with those clothes---count me among the impressed who I'm sure will be posting to praise you.  And with that tied-back hair she looks particularly I Love Lucy in the pants outfit!

shes not a madame alexander, shes I believe from the eugene doll company, but her face is very cissy like. . I actually have two different fashion doll patterns, one was like a mail order company and the others an original vintage simplicity pattern. The black and white outfit and the aqua outfit are from a pattern copy I bought from http://stores.ebay.com/Best-Vintage-Doll-Patterns_W0QQcolZ4QQdirZ1QQdptZ1QQsclZallQQsotimedisplayZ2QQtZkm
her prices are very reasonable, I actually prefer them over the tissue patterns. The hats are my original design.

I posted a link where you could buy a pattern, I'd make copies but I dont have a printer that prints wide enough to fit them the right size.

Great job. Very fifties! I love retro! Grin
 My mom and I found a Ms. Revlon doll in my grandma's stuff after she passed away. Poor thing was naked! Shocked WE cleaned her up and i went on ebay and bought a pattern for her some clothes. I also bought another Revlon doll off ebay too. She was naked too and she also needed a bath.  I cleaned her and fixed her hair and made her a floor length sexy red tight fitting dress .Very Marilyn Monroe! I also made her a leopard print fur coat with a matching headband. She is one hot momma now. Tongue It was so fun.
 As for my g-ma's doll, my mom made her a classic fifties dress and some panties and a bra.  Now our dolls are so pretty.  We ordered them some shoe from a website that makes reproductive accessories for doll and they even got some new hose and a purse.  
After all that we made some clothes for other naked baby dolls that my mom had. So now all the babies have clothes and are very happy. Wink

My step-dad and my husband made so much fun at us for being grown and playing with doll but we did not care. Angry - it was so much fun and i learned alot about sewing while making the doll clothes and it is a great way to use up your scraps from bigger projects!
Keep playing with your dolls- they keep us young... Cheesy
