If you would like to visit my boutique, please email me at with your telephone number &

  I will call you on Tues., May 31st so we can plan your visit! 

I use the same sewing techniques that made the construction of my children's' garments so popular:

     buttons instead of velcro as this product catches 

       and frays lace trims, satins and doll wigs 

    tightly rolled seams to prevent fraying 

     top-quality fabrics and trims

I added a unique style by:

     many styles are designed to mix and match with each    

       other to further develop the child's sense of creativity

     I use sharp colors and prints that are size-appropriate 

     many garments come with coordinating accessories                to enhance their play value

By shopping with me:

     You will be treated with the hospitality associated                       with a cottage industry-based boutique

     You are purchasing a product that has been the   

       developed skill of four generations

     All sewing is 100% American Made!

Many years ago, I decided to follow in my grandmother's and great-grandmother's footsteps and use my sewing talents to pursue a career that would allow me to be an at-home mom.  At this time, I designed and sewed garments for children.   

Like many little girls, my daughter wanted a very popular historical eighteen-inch doll for Christmas.  Naturally, I began creating special outfits for her. My clientele's daughters expressed their desire to have these outfits for their dolls too!

Time only allowed for one area of sewing, so my love of dolls won!  Over the past twenty years,  I have continued to offer a wide variety of outfits priced from to and many accessories that range from to .

Perhaps the reason why I enjoy making my doll clothes is the delight I gain in helping recreate an experience that I treasured as a child.....

​I can vividly remember as a child opening up the big glass door to the local 5 & 10. For you younger shoppers, that is a small store that sold a little of many things. I would walk down what seemed to be a very long isle. Now you should know that this store was first built in the late 1800's so with each step I took, the highly polished worn floorboards would squeak under my feet. I can still hear that delightful sound, because it meant that I was getting close to this most wonderful moment...the moment of finding out if the rack that held an assortment doll dresses was refilled!  

I spent many trips going to this 5 & 10 before I would spend my hard-earned allowance on a selected style.  The last dress I ever bought was bright blue with polka-dots and trimmed very patriotically.  I still have this treasure which was passed on to my daughter when she was little.

I now hope to help create  moments for my shoppers and their daughters.  At my home and craft shows, I try to have my display set up in a way that will create a lasting visual experience.  I have tried to exude this "small-town, days-gone-by" image to this more modern form of communication that sometimes feels all too impersonal.  I hope that the design of  my site makes you feel welcomed and cared about.  It is for all of these reasons that I take pride in my workmanship and hope to create a mutual bond with my new acquaintances through the appreciation of fine-quality doll clothes.  Thank you for shopping with me.

Yours in the love of dolls,


No matter how many years may pass, the 

memories of playing with dolls never fades!

I have always enjoyed the personal atmosphere of local craft shows.  Western New York is brimming with these types of events.  It is a rare fall weekend where you cannot find a local church, town or school offering the opportunity to display your product to the community.  

The beginning of a great friendship.

a worthy cause.

Since so many of the young girls that attended our Girl Scout group visit have asked if we would do birthday parties, we now offer several different programs that are created to help celebrate your birthday in a unique and memorable way! 

Our birthday gatherings are designed for parents wish to celebrate their daughter's birthday without the unending "To Do List" that usually accompanies a party.  

All that you need to do is to forward the provided email invitation which includes an RSVP request and then notify us with the girls' names and how many women will be attending (minimum of nine girls please). That is it!  There is no need for a cake or decorations as we provide treats and an old-fashioned decor.  The shopping trip is the party favor and the well-organized program assures that everyone has a relaxing, fun time!

Please feel free to call for more details!  716-998-9662

Depending on the time of year, old-fashioned hot chocolate or mildly spiced apple punch is served as the beverage.  

Step back in time to an 1830's cottage industry home where you will find original designs to fit your favorite 18" doll or 15" baby doll.  Historical dresses, modern trends, fancy hats, colorful shoes and much more are displayed in our boutique.   If a guest does not own such a doll, any other doll or stuffed animal would be more than welcomed as we have sleeping bags and other items that work nicely for them.  We also encourage the girls to bring their moms as the love of dolls should never be outgrown!

Group Visits and Birthday Parties

Come enjoy an afternoon or evening at the American Doll Boutique in Orchard Park!  

Sandie, a fourth-generation seamstress and the owner of the boutique, will give a short talk on one of a variety of topics relating to girls' fashions through the ages, how sewing has changed over the years and etiquette.

"Mandie's Hair Salon" is a boutique favorite where doll hair fashions are demonstrated.  If desired, each doll brought will have their hair styled.  Even baby dolls and teddy bears are prettied up with ribbons!  

(one doll per girl please)

Everyone gets to practice her etiquette lesson while enjoying heritage-related treats served on china moms are offered these goodies as well.  

We do not charge for this two hour program, treats and hairstyling.  We would rather have the girls be able to shop in the boutique so that they can leave with something special for their dolls' wardrobe. We request that there be a minimum of nine girls and that each girl have a  spending allowance to be spent in the American Doll Boutique.   

At the end of each program, we offer to take a group photo so that everyone can remember the fun time they had when they stepped back in time and enjoyed some old-fashioned lady-like fun! 

Visiting dates for the Brownie and Girl Scout troops fill up quickly, so please call soon to reserve your time!

We will look forward to seeing you soon!
