Thrift Store Doll Clothes Makeover

So, I found this bag of misc. doll clothes at my local thrift store.
When I got home and opened the bag this is what I found.
4 dresses, 3 pair of PJs and a sleeper.
I'm pretty sure these are 1970 era doll clothes. 
I decided to remake them for the Crissy's to fill out their wardrobe!

Here are all 3 PJs.  I think they are fine as they are.
But I decided to definitely do a makeover on the 4 dresses.

This first  red dress made me decide 
these clothes were likely from the 1970s. 
Look at that pointy collar!

The green dress.

The red stripe dress.

The yellow flower dress.
All these dresses are WAY too big, so I had to bring them in.

And, here is how they turned out!!

First, the red dress
Definitely came out great.  It works perfect for these 1970s dolls.

The red stripe dress I removed the pink flower group 
from the pocket and added some stitching detail.

I have found that the larger Crissy dolls can wear their smaller 
sisters dresses as tops. Their bodice size is the same!

Definitely my favorite makeover dress!
I took off the lime green bow and replaced it with
This line of blue flowers.

The yellow dress had gathered sleeves at one time, but the elastic is worn out.
I decided to leave the sleeves in this bell style.

Here again a Velvet-size dress makes a cute Crissy top.

Well, for $5.00 I got several new outfits for the Crissy dolls.
I'm very happy with how these little projects turned out!
