Nanea’s PC PJs

Standard

So Nanea won the poll from last week, and then it snowed, so I went from feeling like pumpkin muffins to wondering where the Christmas lights were but still had to sew something Hawaiian for you 🙂  The observant will notice my sad return to indoor photo-taking, which means worse lighting and settings, but this pattern is pretty great, even if the pix illustrating it are not!

My husband has actually been known to stop a movie when I’ve yelled “NPC!” too much.  In my own little slang, it means “Not Period Correct” and it gets yelled at historical movies whose costume designers seem to have only the vaguest idea of what clothing was worn in the period, or just flat out don’t care.  The worst NPC costumes I’ve seen lately were in a Kdrama called “Bridal Mask”, but Nanea’s pajamas from AG are a close second.  Why?  That remains a mystery when a) she was intended to be a historical doll and help kids learn about a particular period of history and b) things like libraries and the internet and, for this period, maybe even old family photo albums exist.  If you feel the same way, here is one well-researched and authentic  (AKA “very PC”)  PJ pattern for Nanea :

I forgot about posting the rattlesnake pix from a few weeks ago until I was going through my Nanea picture directory trying to decide which one to post here today.  All of a sudden, there it was again!  Not as scary looking in the photo as it was encountering him in real life…

More cute Wellie stuff!

Standard

A HUGE thank you to everyone that shared their pix, and if you don’t have a Wellie, you can now get the pattern for the jammies here.  Yes, they fit H4H; the top is a wee bit baggy although for PJs that shouldn’t matter much!  The top would make a nice blouse too; the collar gives it a sweet, vintage feel in my opinion.  How about a feedsack print with a white collar?

Speaking of H4H and things they can share, the princess collection for them is ready so you can keep adding to their dress up box:

And the beautifully fitted “Versatility” pants/capris/shorts with working (or not) pockets that have been available for AG and Maru are now in Wellie/H4H size:

In case you’re wondering…no, these dolls are not exactly the same size.  But when you overlap the closures in back to accommodate the slightly (1/2″) thinner torso of the H4H, they can share many patterns.  I’m thinking I may do more for them, especially because  Joanne commented and linked to FB saying the H4H are coming back! Supposedly in time for the 2016 holiday season – hooray!
