Glad Rag Doll

I had been looking for an undressed doll because I had this gorgeous outfit, made by Sue Uhlherr, made from the vintage pattern, below. 

I found her! Check out how outrageously VAMP she is! 

It is important, if these boudoir dolls need an outfit, to dress them true to their era. Using these vintage patterns is the best way to go. I found them on Etsy, as a download, or eBay. And, don't forget to use appropriate fabric; satin, silk, cotton; natural fabrics, no synthetics.






  Little painted lady with your lovely clothes
Where are you bound for may I ask?
What your diamonds cost you everybody knows
All the world can see behind your mask
Old doll and in black rags
Tomorrow may turn to sad rags
They call her glad rag doll
Admired, desired by lovers who soon grow tired
Poor little glad rag doll
You just a pretty toy they like to play with
You're not the kind they choose to grow old and grey with
Don't make this the end here
It's never too late to mend you
Poor little glad rag doll
You just a pretty toy they like to play with
You're not the kind they choose to grow old and grey with
Don't make this the end here
It's never too late to mend you
Poor little glad rag doll

Boudoir Doll Sighting - The Film "Speedy" - Harold Lloyd - 1928

Harold Lloyd, Ann Christy in "Speedy" 1928 - boudoir doll given away as prize at Coney Island.








Unfortunately, this YouTube film clip has the wrong music and repeats scenes and has scenes out of context so it doesn't represent the movie correctly. The Coney Island part of this movie, the way it originally was, was great! You might want to rent the DVD - Netflix has it. Anyway, boudoir doll starts at 3:54.........
