Soul, one of the 9-inch World of Love dolls from Hasbro, stands alone in a room with a single office chair and window. She wears capri pants made of a cotton fabric that's decorated with tiny pink flowers and lavender-colored vines. She wears a matching lavender shirt with two tiny buttons at the top. The shirt has long sleeves and a conservative rounded neckline but no collar. She wears tiny white plastic flats. If you would like to make an outfit like this for your 9-inch (23 cm) dolls, you can find the free, printable PDF patterns at ChellyWood.com along with tutorial videos showing how to make both the shirt and the capri pants.

The image shows the 18-inch BFC Ink Kaitlin doll wearing handmade shorts with an elastic waistband and a lace-trimmed (and rick rack trimmed) short-sleeved shirt made of the same springtime yellow fabric as the shorts. She wears glittery pink high-top sneakers with the whole ensemble and her hair is pulled up in a pony tail. She's looking closely at a poster on the wall of the diorama in which she stands. The poster advertisement says "Galway Kinnel" and is a retro-style poster for a poetry reading at the University of Arizona Poetry Center. The wording slightly resembles piano keys but instead of white ivory, the lines of the keys are made of oak-like wood.
