UPDATED WITH A WINNER! Congratulations Tina. Please check your inbox.

Summer Chic in Fall? Oh, yes!! Saige looks beautiful in the Summer Chic outfit for 18″ soft-bodied dolls from Carpatina. I actually had a hard time deciding who was going to be my model this morning – Saige or Julie. While the outfit kind of has that 70’s thing going on, the colors work so well on Saige and the detail in the stitching reminds me of something Saige really would wear.

The Summer Chic outfit comes with an off-white peasant style top with detailed stitching in shades of brown and gold with some beading. It is paired with skinny jeans that look good with flats or in this case, boots. I hope Ivy doesn’t notice that Saige borrowed her boots.

The top is very light weight and somewhat dainty. I recommend having your doll “step into” the shirt to make it easier to get her arms in the sleeves. The jeans are a great fit but as with all dark fabrics, I don’t recommend leaving your doll in them too long.
