No doll photograph would be complete without some BLU TACK to hold everything in place!

A selection of SNAP STUDS to fix any vintage dolls clothes and accessories

A reel of INVISIBLE THREAD to hold doll poses, pull out clothing (especially skirts/dresses) and hold accessories in place

A small SEWING KIT for repairs and on-set tailoring. Build up a range of cotton colours and needle sizes

Pack a pair of small SCISSORS for trimming stray threads on clothing - the small size makes for a more precise snip

WHAT IS A

Dolly KIT BAG?

13 14

Mini BULL DOG CLIPS are great for holding clothing in place and ensuring a better fit Use bigger ones for holding backdrops in place.

Mini rolls of CELLOTAPE for holding accessories in place and use folded tape as an instant lint, dust and hair remover

Using a small or child's TOOTHBRUSH is the perfect way to smooth hair and tame away any flyway strands

This compact LINT ROLLER will make light work of removing threads, dust and hairs on clothing, interiors and fabrics

Either a doll's brush, a fine comb or an EYEBROW BRUSH is essential to keep hair and flyaway strands under control

Pack a travel SPRAY BOTTLE of water to use with the toothbrush or combs above to help smooth hair down

Have a pile of these mini ELASTIC BANDS in various colours to hand. Great for hairstyling but also great for holding props in hands

Invest in a SLEEVE IRONING BOARD - it's the perfect size for pressing dolls' clothes professionally.

It's also worth investing in a TRAVEL IRON - it makes pressing small clothing easier and it's less likely to get burnt, as it doesn't get too hot

No professional fashion stylist would ever be caught short without a kit bag. The humble kit bag is as it implies - a 'bag for your kit'. They are generally filled with all the magic bits and pieces that help fix, adjust or alter any wardrobe or styling issues on a photoshoot or film set. We see no reason why your dolly kit bag shouldn't do the same, whether you're shooting inside, outside or on location. You'll wonder how you ever managed without it.

DEAR SINDY...

We asked designer Jo at @thesindyballetgirl to help with this fashion dilemma, as she shares her expert advice on how to re-pleat a pleated skirt.

How to re-pleat pleats:

Iron out the original pleats

Starting from the top where the original pleat is secure, fold new pleats following the pattern and pin in place at the hem

Tack each pleat at the hem with small stitches to secure Dampen skirt with a mist spray, then place a cloth support inside the skirt and press with warm iron

Leave to cool completely

Remove the tacking and tada - your pleats are back in place!

B Y @ T H E S I N D Y B A L L E T G I R L ... please show me
to revive my
how
pleats!
Don't use a mist spray on silk, nylon or acetate satin fabrics Jo's Top Tip:

SCARBOROUGH, YORKSHIRE

@ S H E L L Y S S I N D Y S A D V E N T U R E S

We spoke to Michele who visited Scarborough in Yorkshire. Scarborough is a town on England’s North Sea coast and known as Britain's original seaside resort. It actually has two sandy beaches – majestic sweeps of sand known as North and South Bay, split by the 12th-century Castle headland. It's South Bay that most people mean if they say they're going to the beach.

SLEEP: The Grand Hotel Scarborough on St Nicholas Cliff

EAT: Winking Willy's Famous Fish & Chip Shop & Cafe at 9-10 Sandside

ICE CREAM: Flamingo Bay, 24 Foreshore Rd

VISIT: SEA LIFE Scarborough on Scalby Mills Road

RIDE: Central Tramway at Upper Station, 1 Marine Parade

SINDY MOTORCYCLE 1982

In 1982 Sindy got a brand new realistic looking Motorcycle (44384) in bright yellow plastic. With black wheels (and rear wheel noise, no less), silver plastic metalwork, a white top-box on the back and a removable shopping basket on the front. It was sold with a red nylon flying suit iconic yellow trainers and a moulded crash helmet - and was just the ticket for getting Sindy around town
