Hand Me down knits

A couple of summers ago my sent a bunch of stuff from her house. She was moving out and it was time to clear out my stuff. In the shipment were her dolly clothes from when she and I were little girls. I played with them too. I had forgotten how much crochet wear there was.

I pulled it all out and gently hand washed it in Eucalan wool wash. For the most part everything came out all right. There were a few undyed wool pieces that disintegrated. Sixty plus years can do that.

Here are some shots. I did my best with the styling of the dolls but Em had an opinion too.
