much since forever. But isn’t it great on her?

I would be the first of many to admit that I leave my dolls in the same outfit for days, weeks, and months on end. Poor things. But sometimes I just find the ‘right’ outfit for a doll and it just looks great on them and I just don’t want to change them! Plus, finding a new ‘right’ outfit can be time consuming. Luckily, Blythes tend to look great in everything, and I also have the tendency to buy (or craft!) clothing items in a manner that curated a wardrobe that, in general, goes well together.

There are certain dolls in my collection that just don’t get a lot of “play” time. This isn’t because I don’t love them, I do, it’s because there’s just some aspect of them that makes general handling a challenge – this is mostly in reference to the thick, heavy, always-in-my-way hair that some of my dolls have. But sometimes I’ll take one of these troublemakers off my shelf and pop them in a new outfit… Mostly because I’ve realized that they’ve been in the same dress for at least half a year. Or more. I’m such a bad dolly owner sometimes.

    I’ve got a couple of dolls whose outfits are impossible to remove and I’m afraid that if I try to find a way to take them off, I might tear them or damage the outfit in some way, so I guess those girls will be stuck with the same look forever. The rest of the family owns easy to remove garments, but my dolly wardrobe is very limited, so as their sisters, they have to remain in the same clothes :/
