Finally Kit Get's Her Chance!!!!

American Girl Doll Kit's Meet Outfit 
 It's 1934, and the Great Depression is ramping up. Kit's is dressed in a lilac sweater set and floral linen skirt, with white cotton underwear and white sandals Her cute blond hair is held back with a lilac barrette with hearts.
 I got Kit for  Mother's Day this year, and just have not been able to get around to working on her meet outfit....I love this time...the Great Depression.  It showed the voracity of the American people....it was also a very sad time, so ,many people's lives fell apart.  I loved watching the old movies from this time, growing up!!!!

I loved doing this pattern so much in summer colors, I decided to do one in more Fall colors, when I came across this thread. Madison begged to model it...so here she is. Dark tan, almost a brown, crochet, lacy dress, with a rose ribbon at the waist, over a black slip, black tights and cute black shoes consists of the outfit.Very elegant, yet perfect for a nine year old!!!!

Addy's Meet Accessories

When Addy and Momma escaped to freedom, they could only take a few possessions with them. Use Addy's kerchief to make a bundle for her to carry. Tuck her water gourd in safely.  Tie the calico ribbon of her straw bonnet beneath her chin. Then, most important, hang the cowrie shellaround Addy’s neck. It belonged to her great-grandmother, who brought it all the way from Africa, and it’s Addy’s most precious treasure. She looks so sweet!!!!
