|No I buy the cheapest doll that fits the bill (I do like them to flex in the appropriate places) and strip the clothes and start again dressing them. Lady Elizabeth above was a originally a Victorian kitchen maid!
By the time you have bought molds and wigs making your own completely could end up very expensive. I do make the clothes though from dressmaking, curtain, lampshade making and other scraps - including DH's old shirts. I once stole one he was very fond of before he was ready to part with it!! That ended up as a smocked baby dress and looked far better on her than with worn cuffs & collar as a shirt on him - well in my opinion anyway
