Do you know about American Girl Dolls?
Unlike Barbie, who is nearly 60, these girls have only been around for 30 years or so. They are intended to represent girls aged between 8 and 11. Their wardrobe reflects that. No stilettos or bras, just wholesome childhood playmates. Originally the dolls wore costumes from various points in American history, but then the range expanded with lots of contemporary outfits and a wider choice of hair colour and skin tones, enabling girls from all ethnicities to find a doll just like themselves.
The pukka AG dolls are carefully made, with prices to match. Even the similar ones do not come cheap, and their outfits are also beyond the range of most girls' pocket money.
These dolls are collectibles in the USA and Canada, and increasingly in the UK. Many adults collect them, dress them, and fill their houses with them!
But that doesn't help a little girl who has just one doll and would like to build up a wardrobe of clothes.
One of my young friends at church had a Doll like this for Christmas. She brought her to church on Christmas Morning. I asked if she'd like me to make a her doll new outfit. It's ages since I did any doll's clothes.
The Internet has dozens of sites. I found a good cardigan knitting pattern,here, and made a simple elasticated skirt to match. This could be the start of a new project for 2017 I suspect!
