About Ruby Bell Doll Clothes
Welcome! RubyBell is my dream business becoming reality. I am Barbara Bohr, owner of RubyBell Doll Clothes, a unique one of a kind doll clothing shop. I have been designing, sewing, and altering full size gowns for over 40 years specializing in couture wedding and pageant attire. A few years ago, I began to design doll clothes for my great neice as a birthday gift and realized how much I enjoyed the fun of designing for dolls. I found it to be refreshing and relaxing break from the demanding work of pageant and wedding gown tailoring.
When I was 7 my grandmother Ruby and my mother Beulah Belle started a life long dedication to teaching me the finest traits in garment construction and couture alteration. So when I decided to take on this new business, I felt it only honorable to name the business after the two most influential people I knew, for without their knowledge in couture sewing, I wouldn't be where I am today. The photo on this page is from over 20 years ago and is one of the last photographs taken of my grandmother Ruby.
Each garment sold on Ruby Bell is patterned, cut and constructed by myself. I do not duplicate garments, as I prefer my doll clothing line to be one of a kind. So only one of each item is sold. I will redesign an outfit that may be similar, but never exactly the same. I can duplicate full size gowns into doll size garments.
I hope you enjoy what RubyBell offers in a unique clothing line for the 18" American Girl doll, 15" dolls like Bitty Baby and Barbie. If I may be of service, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com. Thank you for visiting and have a blessed day!
