Flashback Friday - 1981 prairie-chic preschooler and matching doll
Two little dolls from 1981. The dark-haired one is my lovely little DD. The light-haired one is the doll I sewed for her.
Each is wearing matching white cotton blouses, peasant still skirts with wide hem ruffles and a bias-tape trimmed bolero-style vest.
The patterns - McCall's 7222 (c. 1980) and McCall's 7480 (c. 1981) - survived the dozens of moves this little family made over the years.
The doll and the outfit? They were long ago donated to a thrift store where I hope they were found and brought home for another little girl to enjoy.
And why I had a thing for sewing blonde dolls I'll never know... Pin It
