I only had 4 or 5 outfits for my Francie doll
when I was a kid, so I have been trying to
build her wardrobe up some. The price of
the vintage outfits can be outrageous so I
have made a few items for her from the one
commercial pattern that is available. To fill
in some I have picked up some reproduction
outfits. Here are the ones I got for Christmas.
Reproduction AA Francie is wearing a
2 piece polyester pantsuit with a bodysuit
blouse. This reminds me so much of the
outfits I use to wear in the mid 70's when I
The blouse is tight across the chest and kept
popping open the snaps and the chain belt
had to be cut off. I will have to put a clasp
on it so she can get it on. But all in all I
think it looks nice on her.
My original vintage Francie is wearing the
reproduction 'Gad Abouts'. It's a cute outfit
and the leggings were surprisingly easy to
get on. I can make her another top to go
with the skirt to expand her options.
