About Our Company
Some Background about Our Exclusive Doll Costumes.
Dollmasters first introduced its exclusive line of doll costumes ten years ago with a simple white baby gown lavished with rows of tucking and lace — just like an original baby gown made about 1890. Since that time we have added more than 400 different designs to our line of doll costumes for antique dolls.
What makes Dollmasters costumes different than others you might find? Two things. First, we insist that costumes only be re-created from actual original clothes — rather than from patterns. We search the archives and attics of Europe and America for antique doll costumes, study their construction, fabrics, and ornamentation, and copy our costumes exactly from those.
Secondly, we use the very same fabrics that would have been used in 1870 or 1890 or 1920. Only pure fine cottons, silks and woolens are used for Dollmasters costumes, and only in the authentic colors of the era.
Many collectors are knowledgeable about which styles are proper for their dolls — but many are not. If you need help in selecting the proper style and size for your doll we are anxious to help. We have a sample of each costume right at hand and can offer whatever additional information you need.
