Storing Toni’s Ballgowns

People usually dress their vintage Toni doll in the dress styles worn by little girls in the 1950s and 1960s. The gathered skirts and short sleeves look cute on this doll. My doll has ventured into a wider range of attire from evening gowns to costumes to slacks and clothing from earlier eras.

I was able to get doll-sized hangers for her clothes but those didn’t work for storing her ballgowns. Then I found this method of hanging those long dresses.

I like that this fits over a hanger that you already have. The fabric sleeve Velcros together with the clips dangling down. This is sold on Amazon to hold lots of baseball caps. I should get 4 of these for my spouse to hold all his caps.

For my use, I got these to hold doll dresses. Although I have doll-sized hangers for the dresses, the ballgowns and strapless dresses won’t hang on a hanger. These clips take care of that. Hanging each dress on a separate clip keeps them handy for wearing. Here’s a solution for little girls with a big wardrobe for their dolly or for a doll collector.

If you want to see the details on this hanging option, here’s the link to it on Amazon. It’s called a Hat Organizer. There are 2 of the sleeves in a package, so you can hang your dolls’ evening gowns, slacks, or other items that won’t work with an ordinary doll hanger.
