Addy loves her long, white nightgown. I hoped I would find this at the Wilmot sale or outlet store, but about a year ago Addy got tired of waiting for pajamas (she was wearing a nightgown made for a baby doll!) and I paid full-price. It is a must-have item for Addy with simple, beautiful detailing. Only one regret — no slippers.
By the time I purchased the nightgown Mattel had dropped the grey slippers and heart warmer from the nightgown. Those winter nights in Philly with only a wood stove are going to be mighty chilly without slippers. I turned to Etsy looking for something old-timey that could have been knit by Addy’s mama.
I found these delightful slippers in the joannekantola shop, which I chose because the scale seemed appropriate for an 18″ doll. Addy’s original Pleasant Co slippers were charcoal grey, but we decided to go with the pretty red ones. What girl doesn’t want ruby slippers?
Addy is very pleased with the fit! Should the heart warmer find its way to us some day, the red slippers will compliment it.
