On Tuesday, I showed a doll dress my mother knitted and thought later why not post all of my old doll clothes? So here they are.
Just for the record, all of these are pretty darn old now (funny how I haven't aged any). This scarf and sweater set was knitted by my mom for my Baby First Steps doll. I remember using it quite often, I'm surprise it survived.
This was also made by my mother, in fact, all of these were until further notice. A cute coat made from some leftover fabric, no doubt.
The flannel nightgown on the right is also leftover fabric; I had p.j.'s made from the same material.
Corduroy shorts and a skirt. That skirt fabric was left over from a dress my mom made for me with rust color trim.
Child size and one doll size apron. The fabric on the right was cafe curtains in our house. That little doll apron looks like feedsack material, doesn't it?
How mod! The dress on the left is the same fabric as a longish vest my mom made for me. I know it had "LOVE" printed on it, but can't recall any other words. The romper on the right was the ultra hip lining to a gold (think 60s "gold" like a sunflower) suit my mother made for herself. I remember that suit and thought it was really cool at the time.
A dress that fit my Crissy doll.
Okay, here is your notice: these two dresses below were store bought. Not sure what dolls they fit. The green one is a bit of a mystery to me as the color and style do not look 60s or 70s. So is it older? Did it come from an older cousin? Was it a contemporary doll dressed to look "retro"? You tell me.
It's amazing these are still with us. After all, kids have played with them, tossed them aside; they were stored in a basement for a long time. I should be so resilient, right?
Have a super duper day!
