Beaded Dawn outfit

Dawn is a Topper doll produced between 1970 and 1973, this particular one is a HTH (Head to toe). She's about half the size of a Barbie doll.
If you'd like to know more about this outfit that I beaded for her from seed beads, have a look at my blog:

You have Dawn dolls! I thought I was the only person around that still had those. (Not sure where they are at the moment) I always loved those ittybitty dolls! Your beadwork is absolutely lovely.

Thank you so much!

It's the only Dawn doll I have, and I'm not even sure where I got it. As far as I know we didn't have Topper dolls here in Germany, at least I can't remember them from my childhood. I'm thinking I should get more and set up a fancy party ;)

A fancy party would be so cute! More dolls to show your pretty beading on. Go for it! :)

At the moment I'm working on an outfit for a Mattel Francie, her legs are so much longer! :lol:

Cool! Francie is supposed to be a little younger than Barbie isn't she? I have (somewhere) a 1959 Barbie and a Skipper. Barbie sure has changed over the years!

Can't wait to see what you make for Francie!

CatsWire's avatar

Yes, Francie is Barbie's younger MOD cousin, she was introduced in 1966 and is not quite as curvy which makes the top part a little easier to bead.

I beaded a little shoe for her, hope to make the other one tomorrow and then put the outfit together and contemplate accessories!

Thank you so much for your interest!

Well done.
