A fashion photo shoot with Pachom's 12 pieces, now mine!
The 2 pant sets can be taken apart to match with other items. The orange pant outfit stayed on Scout, a 13" Little Darling... But the Heart 4 Heart size outfit, with the burgundy cord pants and pinkish flowered top was tried and photographed on several dolls.
Pants for the boys, too!
I was very excited to find that, not only did that set fit the Little Darlings, my vintage dolls, AND my 17" bjd's...the pants also fit my Chris Miller/Robin Woods boy dolls. I have 3 of these boys and they have no pants!! They have been borrowing jeans from my 18" Tonner males, who only have 1 outfit each themselves. The jeans are too long (I included a pic of Chris wearing them) and I refuse to cut them, since I need them for those Tonner's. The 3 boy dolls came in costume-tux pants, velvet pants, and Hansel pants, which I changed out when the hot weather hit...
Boy, am I happy. Now I just have to convince Pachom to make me 3 pairs of those pants. Powers of persuasion...
Update! Aug 31...she did! Happy boys. See the blog post, Pants for the Boys.
Another update, March 2016 ...Pachom sent the boys more clothes! Wow! My boys are in heaven!
Well, I did make it more challenging by getting 3 MORE boy dolls in December.
AND we sent one to Pachom too. For a gift! But with the hopes that it would inspire her to make MORE boys clothes!
We didn't expect it would happen so quickly...Pachom just had twin babies! Congratulations, Pachom! So cute...
There's lots of pink!
It seemed I was short of pink dresses for my girls, so this order (Summer 2015) focused on filling that gap...
One dress here, in the photo of the 3 dollies together, is not Pachom's. I included the doll, Tiny Shawl Dancer, in a black flowered dress in the photo, to show a comparison of size and scale, before I changed her into a pink dress...
Scales and Sizes...Beware of photo!
This photo shoot was instructive for me in comparing the dolls I have, their sizes, and what clothes they can share. There are a couple of scale photos of my naked dolls at the bottom. For information purposes. I looked up a lot of scale photos like this, from others' sites, and they were very helpful to me in choosing dolls and clothes....
If you want to use any photos here, please let me know. I'd love credit for any shared photos. Big investment over the years, and lots of work doing the photos. (And I'm not complaining but dressing dolls is surprisingly challenging and time consuming! lol)

Below: Tiny Shawl Dancer, Tonner's Ellowyne, and LD Lula...
The difference in color on the Ellowyne is just...I don't know what. Same night, same lighting...but it is the same dress.

Don't look! Unless you are gathering info on dolly sizes, for clothes making, etc. Thanks!
My Chris Wood boy doesn't seem much bigger than the 13" Little Darling, but her Colvin jeans are way too small for him. Can't share...

One imagines that an original thought, that creates a good vibration, spreads.
