Identical twins



A new couple of dolls has arrived: Giselle and Giselle!

One twin sister came all the way from the Russian Federation, the other was sent from France. One of the sellers provided the Nu Face box, and they both fit in it, so they can be stored together.

The sisters don't have clothes yet. I started on a gown with the idea of making matching outfits, but the fabric I used was far too stiff and not manageable for such a small garment (curtain fabric). The idea was good, the execution wasn't! This is the skirt part of the gown:

It's not very obvious in this picture, but the colours are gold and silver.
Unfortunately it's a disaster, I really like this fabric.
It would have looked so good with the platinum blonde hair of the sisters...

I've been shopping for other fabrics since then, and found some nice, more suitable fabrics for my twin sisters. They will not have to be naked for much longer :-).

The twins are Fashion Royalty Giselle Diefendorf dolls from the gift set "Sister Moguls"
Integrity Toys, 2016
The original sisters in this set are Giselle and Agnes Von Weiss

      Hello Eunice, the combination of the embroidered pattern and loosely woven base was very difficult to sew, and my doll looked like she was wearing a tight circus tent :-D. Thank you for wishing me good luck!
      Hello Eunice, połączenie haftowane wzór i luźno tkane bazy było bardzo trudne, szyć i moja lalka wyglądał jakby miała na sobie mocno namiot cyrku :-D. Dziękujemy, że chcą mi powodzenia!

  3. It's a good idea to have twin dolls. You can dress them in matching or contrasting outfits. The possibilities are endless.

    1. Hello Nana, yes, they really inspire me to make all sorts of clothes (within the limits of my modest skills of course) :-). In my mind, they are not so nice girls, a bit evil, but very successful fashion models :-D.

  4. Beautiful dolls. I love the hair colour. So the fabrics' colours you have shown on the photo. It's really shame that their not suitable for sewing gowns... You matched them perfectly for the Twins. I'm really courius what you have found instead. :)

    1. Hello Kamelia, the twin girls need clothes urgently, it's getting colder ;-). I will show the clothes I'll make from the new fabrics here soon I hope! The only problem is that I have no shoes for them, they have big feet compared to my other dolls!

  6. I hope next fabric will be more cooperative. Girls are beautiful and idea of high-fashion tweens is brilliant. I can't wait to see their final look :)

  7. Hello Millicent,
    They are beautifully sculpted. I love the severity of their traits. It is really a shame the fabric would not cooperate, but I know you will find something that will be spectacular.
    Big hug

    1. Hello Inka, it certainly is interesting and special to see fashion photos with twins! Do you mean by mental that the viewer is intrigued?

      Witam Inka, z pewnością jest ciekawe i specjalne aby zobaczyć zdjęcia moda z bliźniakami! Masz na myśli przez psychicznego że widz jest zaintrygowany?

  9. Oh! Lovely post!!! As I adore twins, I have liked this post a lot. I didn't know there are such an amount of twins dedicated to Fashion! I have several twins (or believed twins) in my Library and I love them all!!
    As for the fabric, yes, it is quite thick for sewing for a doll. Even if you were able to sew into such a little gown, it won't fit good on them. But I will come back to see the final gown when you dress your wonderful twins!!

    1. Hello Rosana, thank you :-). There are more twins in fashion, also in the male fashion model part! I think designers love to show their creations on twins :-).
      I started on the first outfit with a good fabric, so I hope it will work out as I imagined :-).
      Kisses back!

  10. Oh....Giselle and Giselle are really beautiful. Lucky you!!! I'm sure you will really enjoy both. When I was in high school, there were several sets of twins. I was very good friends with one pair. Oh how I thought it would be really cool to have such a double! I imagined all of the tricks we could play. But you, my dear...be careful....those two dolls might play a few tricks from time to time!!! Can't wait to see what you make for them.

    1. Hello April, I'm very happy with my twin sisters! When I was a young girl, I too wished myself a twin sister :-).
      Giselle and Giselle (I still have to come up with other names) have a lot of "personality"! I think you're right, I bet they have lots of tricks up their sleeves, I'll better watch out lol! They look a bit villainous in a ladylike way to me...
      I hope to show the ladies all dressed soon :-).
