I can dive into a garment emotionally. I know a lot of people are the same way. We're the ones scouring thrift stores for a score. I found this doll's dress that looks and feels like history at one of my favorite thrifting haunts in Topanga Canyon, Hidden Treasures. My daughter's friend is turning 10 this weekend and still very lovingly plays with her beautiful dolls. We think this will make a perfect gift.
