FINALLY I’ve got some 1:12 scale dollhouse doll wigs for my porcelain dolls

How long does it take to get wigs for dollhouse dolls made? Well, in my case, I’m ashamed to say, it takes……34 years!! Yes, you did read that right! I bought my dollhouse in 1983, and very soon after, I bought some undressed porcelain dolls for it. But they needed wigs, so I put them away, to do later. That was in 1986. Hmmm…….

So, I recently found them again, and decided it was about time that I got them finished! I tried looking in my dollhouse books, to see how to make my own, but very quickly realised this was not my thing, so I hunted around and came across Josephines Miniatures on Etsy. Josephine makes 1:12 scale wigs to order for dollhouse dolls (as well as beautiful miniature tatting).

My dollhouses are Victorian/Edwardian in style, so I looked online for some images for her to use as inspiration, and came up with these:

Dollhouse doll wigs for 1: 12 scale porcelain dolls

Dollhouse doll wigs for 1: 12 scale porcelain dolls

Dollhouse doll wigs for 1: 12 scale porcelain dolls

I sent off my dolls (so that the wigs could be made to fit properly), with detailed instructions about the hair colour that I’d like for each wig, and Josephine was amazing – a couple of weeks later, I got a little parcel back, with each wig labelled for the relevant doll, and everything packaged securely.

Here’s the dolls that needed wigging:

And here’s what Josephine made, from the images I sent her:

And here’s a view of the back of each wig:
