Small Dolls

This morning, possibly inspired by yesterday’s post, I found myself inspired to get my five small (10 to 12 inch) BJDs out and see what I could find around in the way of knit outfits for all of them.  I changed all their wigs and put each of them in a costume I don’t think they’ve worn before.  And took pictures.

Five Yo-Sized Cozy

Here they all are cozied up together on a bench.  Those are Rod, Tabitha, Magda, Abigail and Edith.  I’m very fond of all of them.

Five Yo-Sized & Tree

Here they are posing together in front of the evergreen that is one of my two standard backgrounds for outdoor photos (one end of my front porch).

Five Yo-Sized Standing

And here they’re standing at the other end of the porch. You can see that Rod is wearing an Aran sweater, a pair of rather girlish pants and a pair of non-matching socks. Magda is wearing a simple top, a ribbed skirt, a shawl (that scarcely shows) and a pair of socks that do match. Tabitha is wearing the outfit that I probably like best of all the doll clothes I’ve made. The top is a miniaturized Sideways Spencer by Annie Modesitt. The skirt, hat and socks are just simple garments. Abby has a low-slung skirt, a simple top, armwarmers and a headband. One of the pair of matching socks is missing. Hope it turns up. And Edith is wearing a dress, a short-sleeved shrug, a hat and a pair of socks.

And now I find I want to knit another outfit for these kids. At least doll clothes go fast!

    I heart your BJD collection. Absolutely stunning, Anne. Ironically, my favorite of the bunch is Abigail. Hope her socks turn out…if not, I am sure mom will gladly make her another pair 😀 Happy Memorial Weekend!
