I have a dream for a Frankie doll custom, and I wanted to find a Frankie with a body where her stitches are part of her molding and not just painted on. But I want her to be an articulated doll as well. It seems that the ones I find with Mildred stitches are the cheap, non articulated limbs, or the articulated ones only have painted on stitching. Aaaah! Itís hard to know how to search for, but does anyone know of a doll with those specifications!! Please and thank you!!! :cry:

I was starting to think there wasn't, but I might have found what you need in Boltin' Bicycle Frankie. 



I don't know if she's still available, but I did see her occasionally in Big Lots.  And the set isn't that bad online.

Oh my goodness my saviour!!! I was wanting to paint them gold and make her look kinda gangsta (lol!) but I didnít want to just paint them on, I like having them actually physically raised on the body!  :biggrin: thanks sooo much!!

I thought I'd mention Skulltimate Science Class Frankie also has molded/raised stitches:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

However, neither of these Frankies have wrist articulation.

You're welcome :) While looking for her, I had forgotten some of the sets, like the science set Pawsome mentioned.  Most seem to be knees only articulation, though, like the locker room and cafeteria sets.  Biggest problem I had was finding any that weren't stock images. ^^;  They've been hard to trust recently, a few of the reboot dolls showed articulation in stock images but lost it in the doll if I recall correctly.

Oh!! I didnít even notice the wrists!! I wonder though if you could cut and sand off her hands and insert articulate hands? If you drill a small hole. Since they are just pegs you can push in, right? Now Iím kind of curious!

You can. There are posts on Tumblr and Youtube for how to do that.

Here's one (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Xm2sVGJEp0) , but I know there are better ones out there if you search for "doll articulation tutorial" or "how to add articulation to dolls" or "how to articulate doll"
