Middie Monday is a feature that is published on the first Monday of each month! A guaranteed monthly post on Blythe’s little sister – Middie! If you have any suggestions for a future Middie Monday post, please send me an email or use my Suggestions form!


It’s December, which also means that one of my favourite holidays is coming up soon! Now what does that have to do with Middies? Not much, but I was musing a bit about what Blythe-related (and Middie-related!) gifts I’d be putting on my wishlist if I was still doing that. For my Middies though, I do think they need something for the holiday season. Given their meager outfit choices between two of them (poor things), I’m thinking I need to work on the following:

  • Outerwear (coats) and accessories (hats, scarves)
  • Dresses (just more of them, a greater selection)
  • Separates (tops and bottoms – this is literally at the bottom of my list because something about sewing doll-sized pants makes me apprehensive of sewing…)
  • Shoes (to be bought)

Basically, my Middies need a little of everything. And if they felt hot or cold, they’d be shivering in their little plastic shoes right now. Not boots though, because I only have one pair of boots that really fit them (I’m a bad Middie owner…).

Do you own Middies? Do they suffer in comparison to their bigger Blythe sisters on the wardrobe or shoe front? What do your Middies want (or need)?

    My Middie Maude needs just about everything! I have made her a dress, but I haven’t yet knit her anything, and finding shoes and other accessories has been a challenge. I’ve gotten a couple of pairs of Kelly shoes which fit very well and are cute, but the options there are super limited so they’re all fairly similar.

      The only thing I look for now in Kelly-sized shoes is for different colours so I have things that can match with different outfits. I wish more Etsy sellers made Middie clothes, or that I had the patience to sew Middie-sized things!

    I was lucky when I found so many Kelly shoes from used toy store, flea markets, garage sale, etc. I think I have over 40 shoes for my Middies now. Sometimes my Middies borrow Neo’s shirts. Yes, too big but still looks so cute on them!! Lucky, I sew so many outfits for them. Learned how to knit. Now I knit clothes for them.
