My Raggedy Ann, whom I've had since I was little, had a nice little outfit. But it wasn't her original outfit. That got lost long ago, I suppose. It was a lavender gingham pinafore and white bloomers. I got her little blue outfit with the lot of items I bought from my girlfriend at work who sold me her old Barbie stuff.
But she only had just the one, this sweet little blue and white dress and hat she is wearing below. She is also wearing the little hand-painted heart pin I wore on my wedding day:
I walked up the street (and I do mean UP -it was a bit of a workout for me!) to a yard sale a couple of weeks ago, and among the items I bought there were these doll clothes:
I even already had a little pair of bloomers to go under the turquoise dress!
I'm happy to say that Raggedy Ann now has a replacement pair of bloomers - or pantaloons - to wear under her new purple floral dress. I think she likes them! Here she is with her Amish friend, who offers some support, as Raggedy Ann has only one arm:
She has certainly been well-loved over the years, that's all I can say.
