A Delightful Surprise from Glammourdoll Designs

Doll couturière Karen Holshouser enjoys making original miniature fashion statements for dolls, ranging from Barbie to Tyler and Gene.  To stretch her creative talents further, she reworks factory-produced fashions into stylish new designs.  On occasion, these designs will end up as prizes to members of her Yahoo group.  Imagine my delight when I won one of these creations!

Special THANKS to Karen for sharing her talents and expanding the joys of sewing to our next generation of collectors!
