You can read a reprint of a vintage 1923 book about doll clothes, Your Dolly's Clothes.
There is Simplicity 8038, which offers a 1920s doll apron, as well as human sizes.
It's also very clever. Miss Fisher is a force to reckon with!
As you can see, there are not many 1920s doll clothes patterns currently.
I am sure that will change if there is ever a 1920s doll!

I love the illustrations of the American Girls and their dolls. Kirsten looks sadly at Sari.
The back of the cards says:
The Larsons had to fit all their possessions in just two trunks when they traveled on the ship to America. Kirsten had to leave Sari in the big painted trunk in Riverton because
1. The family had to walk to Uncle Olav's farm since they couldn't afford a horse and wagon.
2. Kirsten had to help carry more important things than her doll.
Answer: 1, 2

While I have been on eBay looking for AG dolls to give as gifts, I was not looking for dolls for myself. I most especially was not looking at blonde, blue eyed classic mold dolls.
But there was this one doll looked like a modern day Alice in Wonderland, and she just seemed to be alive with personality already. I put in a low bid, and here she is.

Samantha and Nellie looks so scared as they look up at Lincoln.
Samantha was very upset because no one would tell her why Jessie had stopped working for Grandmary. Samantha and Nellie slipped away in the night to Jessie and Lincoln's house to find out what had happened. They discovered Jessie had left because
1. She'd had a new baby
2. She'd been kidnapped
3. She'd gone to New Orleans to be a singer.
Poor Nellie had a lot more to lose from sneaking out at night than Samantha did.

Ellie has some new pants to wear!
You can see her blog, Jinjia Mixed Goods, here, and her etsy shop by the same name here.
These pants are very cool and were easy to make. They have pockets in both the side and the back of the pants.
