Crochet Gown Vintage 5 inch “Tiny Teen” Doll

Crochet Gown For 5 inch Vintage Tiny Teen Doll

 

Collectors are a determined breed of people. We will quest, ad infinitum, for that desired piece to add to our collection. Doll collectors take this determination to an even higher level, as, more often than not, we are questing for the dolls, the clothing and other accessories that belong to a particular doll. There are times that finding a “complete doll” is as rare as finding a unicorn with our “complete doll” perched on top.

I am a baby boomer age collector. Most of the dolls I collect are the dolls from my childhood. This pattern is to create a gown for one of my collecting favs – the 5 inch Tiny Teen doll.
