Repair Doll Oilcloth Shoes

Hi Andy is there any way/product to Repair/preservation Doll oilcloth shoes? Thanks so much!

Dear CC: “oilcloth” over the years has meant different fabrics to different mills. To some, it was a woven cotton that had been “oiled or waxed”. To some others it was a printed vinyl, as is most of the Oilcloth sold today. There was also printed cottons that were laminated and sold as “oilcloth”. The best we can tell from the pictures available on the web, the vintage doll shoes may be a laminated woven fabric. There is no way to restore the fabric. It can be replaced with a more modern version of a similar fabric. Good Luck, Andy
