Mad About Plaid

I don’t know about you, but when the weather turns cool, I immediately think of plaid clothing, especially wool skirts and blazers.  I remember when I was in school, plaid skirts were all the rage and to me, they will always be a classic.  Naturally, my clothing tastes tend to spill over into my doll wardrobe, and I thought it would be fun to do a post about one of my favorite things–plaid!!!

Here are Abby, Marie-Grace and Louisa all decked out in red for Valentine’s day!

I think they look so cute in these outfits.  Here are closeups of the skirts:

Louisa’s skirt was made by Maggie from If Dolls Could Dream.  I love the pleats!!  (It’s actually for something else I have coming up, stay tuned!)  Marie-Grace’s skirt was a gift from Xyra and Abby’s skirt I made myself.  I made it as a holiday type outfit to go with a black shirt originally, but I thought it went well with this sweater too.

Next up we have Jenny and Lanie!

Both of these girls have a bit of a preppy vibe going with their outfits.  I made both of these skirts as well as Jenny’s scarf.

Jenny looks ready for St. Patrick’s Day!

Here is Christine in an outfit that I purchased off Etsy back in 2014.  In fact, I think it was the first doll item I ever purchased off Etsy!!

I like that the skirt is attached to the top, it makes everything lay very nice, no bumps or things sticking out.  I liked the coat so much I tracked down the pattern so I can eventually sew some more of them.

Last, but certainly not least, we have Alya.  This outfit is definitely something you would see me wearing, I love my oversized Aran sweater!!!!

I have several sweaters from Ireland, but my cream colored Aran is by far my favorite.  Irish wool is so soft and warm, there is nothing quite like it.  Alya agrees!

Are you a fan of plaid?  I have a number of plaid dresses in the doll collection too, but I thought it would be fun just to focus on skirts for this post.  Interestingly enough, at the moment–I have no plaid in my own closet!!!!!!  I think I may need to fix that…
