Thank you for visiting our store, we are thrilled to have you visit. We are sisters with an 8 year age gap, an incredibly close bond, a love of crochet and nostalgic childhood memories of our time with our dolly.
Belle lives in Brisbane with her fiancé, two step-sons and her daughter Isla. Alishya lives in Launceston with her partner and her fur baby.
What Dolly Wore begun in July 2020 when Isla’s first birthday was approaching!
Both of us have crocheted as a hobby for years now, usually creating gifts for our friends baby's over the years. When Isla’s Miniland Dolly (Caucasian blonde girl) arrived, whilst impatiently awaiting some handmade outfits on order, Belle created her first outfit, the Siena.
We have a very close extended family and our love for crochet has been handed down from our grandmother and Aunty. Take a look on our Instagram stories for more on this. We have also named our What Dolly Wore collection after all of our younger cousins in the family, to which they are thrilled.
Our small business has grown rapidly since its launch with lots of support from others in the industry and we have loved virtually meeting other women in the world that is 2020.
With the launch of our website in October 2020 we are excited to provide a ready to ship range of our What Dolly Wore crochet clothing, Miniland, Paola Reina and Minikane dolls along with a curated selection of other Australian handmade items, by Australian women, that we also love.
