I have been sewing ever since and "Old Dolly" the out of shape, deformed, flimsy and not to mention red and ugly (who buys red? It goes with nothing and clashes with almost everything I made!) has finally met her maker and fallen completely apart. Its a pity I don't have a photo of her as she really was in a laughable, sorry state! I'm amazed she lasted this long really. These past 12-18 months she has been no good for fitting, one push and she pinged out of shape; so she's just been used for hanging things on during the sewing process.
Let me introduce to you Lady Mae
I read this useful article on Jaycott's Blog (where I purchased Lady Mai from), bought a cover for her also and fitted her out accordingly!
