Layer your Doll’s Clothes for Seasonal Transitions

Summer ends and autumn approaches. How do you dress for those seasonal transition days? Here is a great 2 piece tunic and leggings set (DRST-GY) for your 18 inch doll that has all she’ll need for those cooler mornings and warmer afternoons. The soft pastel colors have a summer time feel while long sleeves and leggings lend themselves to cooler temperatures. This tunic length top is very unique, as it appears to be three distinct pieces…a hoodie, a layering tee shirt and a gray satin skirt. The pink striped shirt has an attached hood and short sleeves. Solid gray long sleeves have been sewn into the short sleeve to give a layered appearance. At the bottom, the gray satin skirt adds the final dimension. A hook and loop closure has been sewn into the side seam of the skirt. The top is long enough to wear alone or with the leggings, allowing your doll to create several different looks. FREE with this purchase is a pair of silver metallic ballet flats that compliment this outfit and perhaps many other 18 inch doll clothes you might already own.  (free shoes is a limited time offer good through 9/6/13)

Back to School!

Back from vacation and, for many, a time to be thinking about going back to school! Many children return to school before Labor Day, which for some families might interrupt a late summer vacation. Others start after the long Labor Day weekend. Personally, I prefer the pre-Labor Day start. Transitioning back to a regular routine is not easy for most families. Knowing that after a few days back at school there will be a short intermission before returning to a full time schedule is less stressful. The first few days of school are usually filled with important information that is not usually academic – how to operate lockers, schedules, class changes, forms to complete, hall passes, dress codes, etc. By the time students return after Labor Day, they might be more focused and ready to attend to learning. Practicing the “get up for school” routine is a good way to get kids and parents ready for this new schedule.
