Here we see the pastel-colored heading for a video that demonstrates how to sew a Victorian dress (pioneer-style dress) for 14 to 15 inch dolls. The text on this video overlay also tells where you can go to download your free patterns: and it shows a pretty image of a Wellie Wisher doll from American Girl posing in a check gingham fabric long dress with long sleeves. The sleeves are puffy at the top just a bit, in a true 19th century style. The dress itself is free of frills and reminds us of Laura Ingalls from the Little House on the Prairie books by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

The Wellie Wishers and the 18 inch American Girl dolls mentioned in this blog post are products offered by Mattel, which holds the registered trademark for them (™). Please visit the Mattel Toys website to learn more about their company and its trademarked toys.

The Crissy family of dolls which includes dolls like vintage Crissy, Velvet, and other dolls, were produced by the Ideal Toy Corporation, which held the registered trademark for them. That company is no longer producing the dolls, and at the time of this blog post, no known company has purchased the trademark to re-produce these dolls. But if you wish to purchase one, you can sometimes find them on eBay (see link in the first set of bullets).

MGA Entertainment is the company that produced the BFC Ink dolls (which is pictured in my video as my niece, Emily), and it still holds the trademark rights to them (™). The BFC Ink dolls (aka Best Friends Club dolls) were in production, starting in 2009, but at the time of this blog post, they are no longer available in stores. You may be able to find a used one on eBay, though, if you’re thinking about collecting them (see link in the first set of bullets). These dolls can swap clothes with Crissy dolls, but their bodies are much more articulated. They have very lovely faces.
