I’ve seen a lot of posts recently about the Madame Alexander clothing sets that turned up at many Tuesday Morning locations over the past few weeks. I have to admit that I looked at these myself, but I passed as the quality didn’t look as good as previous Madame Alexander items. Well, I’m sure glad I did!! Xyra over at Tea Time For Melody Q had a not so great experience with one of the outfits she purchased. You can read about it here. https://teatimewithmelodyq.blogspot.com/2017/06/emergency-wardrobe-update.html
This is a good time just to remind everyone, that when it comes to doll clothing, not all products are created equal! Some doll manufacturers use cheap fabrics that are not color fast and will come off on your dolls! This is especially an issue with bright colors and in particular red, navy, black and purple. I’m not saying to avoid buying completely from other lines or individuals, but just know that there is always that possibility. American Girl has always guaranteed colorfast products in their line, and I’ve left many an outfit on a doll for an extended period of time and not had an issue, but as we can see from Xyra’s experience, it can happen VERY quickly!
