Being a true believer in preventative maintenance, I periodically give lectures at various organizations on preserving, conserving and restoring dolls.
Preservation - Protecting dolls from heat, light, insects, dust, dirt, etc, etc. Conservation - Fixing a problem - restringing, treatment of insect infestations, resetting eyes, etc, etc. Restoration - Replacing or improving - cleaning clothes, sculpting missing parts, restyling wigs or repainting a doll.
I made and dressed the doll on the home page of this website, so I made myself a dress and hat like it and we both do the presentations. Of course, I don't look anywhere near as good in my dress as she does in hers!
