Playing Dolly House.
Brianna McCarthy. 2011.
I really, really loved playing dolly house.
I’m not a typical doll lover - I don’t collect them but some of my favourite childhood memories have to be of making doll’s clothes. I used to get scrap cloth from the neighbourhood seamstress, inspiration and practical knowledge from my sisters and free reign from my imagination.
It was where my hands learnt what they were good at - I cut the tips off my index fingers a few times making arm and button holes.
