Well, look what we found in the attic! The one on the very left was my very first Mandy. Then there is Becky, Jenny and then an older model Mandy. The Mandy on the far left I bought for Emma. She loves these dolls. So funny how she finds these dolls more fun than the ever so expensive American Girl dolls!
There were several of us girls in the neighborhood that had these dolls.. Michelle, Gwen and I all had one of them. My mom made them the kaftans, and I think she also made them capes. We took them everwhere, even when we stayed the night at each other's homes.. they went along as well with their nightgowns. We even took them to the creek! Our moms about killed us over that one!!!!
I have since obtained most of the patterns that came with the clothes and then the My Friends four seasons of patterns. I have cut out a few with the vintage material my mom dug out of the attic. Now I just need to sew!
I have quite a few clothes already! I cannot believe so many of them made it through. My Mandy is one of the originals, #210. She is in fairly good condition considering the gal is over 20 years old. I even made it out with two pairs of white clogs, 2 pairs of white shoes, a pair of brown ones, and her brown riding boots.
