Yes, I’m putting together a collection of doll clothes for vintage Ginny dolls, and this outfit is one of the many I’ll be adding to the Ginny doll clothes pattern gallery, once I’m done.
This T-shirt and skirt were originally designed to fit Barbie and Liv dolls, respectively, but when I discovered that they will fit my nearly-8-inches-tall Vogue Ginny doll, I was excited to write a blog post about it!
So if you’d like to make this outfit for your Vogue Ginny dolls, you’ll need some lightweight jersey fabric for the T-shirt, cotton for the skirt, some 1/8 inch elastic for the skirt, and some tiny snaps for the T-shirt.
Today’s outfit will fit these dolls:
- Vogue nearly-eight-inch Ginny dolls
- Queens of Africa Dolls
- Momoko dolls
- modern and Made-to-Move Barbie dolls
- vintage Barbie dolls
- Liv dolls

At the time of this blog post, the Vogue Ginny doll is no longer made, and there is not a working trademark for these dolls. If anyone knows additional information about these dolls and their current status, please leave a comment below. I’d love to learn more about the company and its dolls, but as they went out of production prior to the popularity of the internet, there’s not much to learn about them online. Click here to find out what Doll Reference has to say about them and their history.
Liv dolls were products designed and distributed by the Spin Master company, which still makes dolls and toys today (although the Liv dolls are no longer in production at the time of this blog post). The Spin Master company held the trademark for the Liv Dolls (™). Please visit the Spin Master Toys and Games website to learn more about their company and its trademarked toys and games. Please be aware that the Chelly Wood animated doll is a Spin Master Liv doll that has been re-painted and had its wig colored to appear to look like the real doll clothing designer, Chelly Wood. This was done as a creative project by Chelly’s daughters, and the Spin Master Toys and Games company was not involved in the doll’s makeover in any way.
