Okay, so I FINALLY finished putting Emily back together. I've decided that I really don't want to restring my dolls unless it's a dire emergency, because it is a total pain!! :}
Taking the limbs off and getting the plastic cup out is actually not that bad. And even doing the first brass insert (the one that goes inside the leg itself) isn't too difficult either. It starts getting tricky, though, when you're crimping the brass insert that goes inside the body. This time around, on the second leg, I didn't have my hubby to help me. It's extremely difficult to get the elastic in the right spot and to crimp the brass insert tight enough while working around the material of the doll's body.
