Lisa Press of PhobeandEgg wanted to design an exceptional collection of dolls that taught ownership and love.

With doll company PhoebeandEgg, collectors of all ages are encouraged to create a wardrobe for your new friend, as an apparel sewing pattern comes with your purchase. The doll teaches the customer the value of ownership in creating something special while letting your imagination run wild. It also introduces the idea of dressmaking. Rather it’s doll clothes, or anything else.

As a child, Press’s mother would sew double-breasted coats and Liberty dresses for her. Lisa’s mother would allow open access to her work space – granting time to practice skill and creativity. As a sewing student to her mother, Press used skills of design to make clothes for her daughters dolls. After they matured out of doll playing,  Lisa begin to make dolls that correlated to her existing doll wardrobe. She mentions in an interview with Etsy Blog that she “wanted a doll that reflected the same handmade feel and creative energy that my clothes had.”   She figured there was no longer a point in creating doll clothes for dolls that were not to the garments aesthetic.  Thus launched Phoebe & Egg.

Captured by history and costumes in plays, Lisa plans to create historical period pairings for the dolls. She believes that can be another learning feature for her customers. Another goal is to expand the baby doll collection. Currently there are only a few wardrobe and accessory choices for Baby Egg. Customer feedback request for more so Lisa plans to meet her consumers need.

With your help for every doll purchased a doll will be made and donated to a child in Family Promise. Family Promise is an organization that shelters homeless families in local churches.
