Here's vintage Dolly all cleaned up -and dressed up!
(You can see her previous state of deshabille in this post.)

 She's been washed and scrubbed and lovingly brought back to life.

If you've seen the 'before' pictures, you'll have noticed the great difference in her hair.
(I'll be sharing the 'how-to' in another post soon.)

 I was happy to make the hot pink off-the-shoulder dress for her

and the flowers in her hair were a custom order from Fairytale Flower....

If you see the face closely, it hasn't been thoroughly restored.
I was arfaid of aggressive scrubing or harsh detergents that might take off her dainty features and decided to be safe rather than sorry.

After some researching on how to do it properly, the proper cleaning of the face will be the next step in this dolly's journey of regeneration.

Here's the obligatory close-up.

I told you she was a cutie!
