Meet Kelsey!

Hello friends. Yes, I have officially entered into that "second childhood" folks speak of. While sewing clothing for granddaughter's AG doll, I wanted a doll of my own to try the clothing on. So, Joann's had a 50% off coupon and their Springfield® dolls are so cute. Pictured above is Kelsey, who is named Olivia by her company. 'Love her green eyes and auburn hair. Kelsey is wearing a darling retro-style dress made by a free pattern from Phoebe & Egg Company. Kelsey's white espadrilles were store-purchased for 50% off, also at Joann's. Springfield® also has a lot of great accessories for these dolls. Those adorable little brown glasses are definitely on the list. This doll company is a wonderful alternative for those of us who cannot afford AG dolls. Kelsey is well made. Do you collect fashion dolls?

  2. If you are going to make doll clothing, you certainly need a model!

    My daughter (11 yrs old now) loves the 18" dolls from Target called Our Generation. I asked her if she would rather have AG and she told me no because they aren't as available or affordable compared to the Target ones. I love that she made that decision on her own! I'm not a doll person, but I accept the fact that my daughter is. :)

  3. She is adorable and you're going to have such fun with her. It makes me want to get back to making doll clothes too. I have Madame Alexander dolls and My Life dolls from Walmart. The 18 inch dolls sure are fun to sew for! Sweet hugs, Diane

  4. What a sweet doll. You are on a fun adventure that will take you great places. I am a friend of Diane's and I hope you don't mind that I linked your post to mine this week. We have such fun with our dolls. I have some Madame Alexander dolls and some from Walmart - and also from Target. All are similarly priced and just the thing for those of us who love to play with and sew for dolls. I love Kelsey's shoes and her outfit is darling. I haven't sewn much lately but when I see what others are doing I want to sew more - hmmmm - wonder what kind of spring clothes I can make?
