Baby Face Shoelaces
The Baby Face
shoelaces are "usually" made with sheer nylon
tricot, in white, light pink, darker pink and hot pink.
Such fabric is sooo hard to find, for replacements! I
wanted to stock it in the doll shop, but I've never found
any in white or pink.
You can get it
from old nightgowns at Goodwill or other thrift stores,
but I was surprised at the prices for such nightgowns.
So, for cheap
replacement shoelaces that look good and stay perky, the
best thing to use is nylon tulle netting (bridal
netting). It's cheap, comes in many colors, is easy to
find, and easy to work with. When it's tied in a bow it
stays upright and perky the way BF laces are supposed to
The BF dolls sold
in Canada had white or pink lace on the dresses and in
the shoes. So that's a good alternate as well.
Marcy has yellow
ribbons in her shoes (not yellow tricot as shown).
Sarah is also
shown with yellow tricot in her shoes, but actually she
has pale pink tricot.
Robyn has pink
ribbons as shown. Natalie is shown with bright green
vinyl shoes but actually the production dolls always have
pink shoes, so the green shoes must have been a prototype
Denny doll is shown with orange shoelaces or white ones,
either way is ok.
