This is another post about my trials and errors with eighteen-inch doll clothes. I've shown you my Madame Alexander dolls and how their clothes look on American Girl dolls (they don't fit). Today I'll introduce a couple of new arrivals. One is a doll we've seen before, but with a slightly different body, and the other is a new breed entirely.
After that it seems a little pointless to try this outfit on Alissa, but I'm going to do it anyway.
Since Alissa has a different body from Gracie I think it will be worth the effort to see how the hiking outfit works on her. Remember that this outfit fit Gracie, but the shorts were a bit tight on her. Not too tight, but tight enough that I didn't try to make Gracie sit in them. Based on the fact that Alissa and the hiking outfit are both from the My Life line, I know that Alissa will be able to wear the hiking outfit, and I hypothesize that she'll be able to wear it better than Gracie.
So...three blog posts, three types of doll, what do I have so far? I've learned that the current Madame Alexander dolls can wear their own clothes, American Girl clothes, and Our Generation clothes. The older, Pleasant Company-era American Girls can wear some Our Generation clothes but almost nothing else. Our Generation dolls can wear American Girl clothes and the occasional Madame Alexander piece. I'll need to try some other OG pieces on Denise before I make my final assessment, but as of right now that option is looking extremely promising. Hopefully I'll have some new OG duds by the twentieth, when I'll be near a Target again; it's getting quite cold here in Missouri, and Sadie needs a coat. We haven't had the snow that parts of the country have had, but it's still quite chilly out.
Stay warm, y'all!
