Volks Dollfie Dream Modeling a Pink Floyd-Inspired Outfit

This is my Volks Dollfie Dream modeling an outfit that includes a doll-sized Pink Floyd t-shirt that I made myself. I got my inspiration for this outfit from a fashion trend that’s been happening in the United States during the first decade of the 21st century where people have been wearing reproductions of vintage t-shirts featuring rock bands from the 1960’s and 1970’s and wearing vintage clothes from that same era.

The t-shirt pattern came from Venus A. Dodge’s book The Dolls’ Dressmaker. The t-shirt is made out of black cotton fabric with white lining sewed on the inside in order to minimize staining on the doll. The t-shirt design is based on the cover of the Pink Floyd album The Dark Side of the Moon, which was scanned into the computer, printed on special transfer paper, then ironed on the t-shirt.

The pants was based on McCall’s Pattern M4860 for 16-inch Tonner dolls. (I had to enlarge the pattern in order for it to fit my Dollfie Dream.) The pants is made out of a stretchy cotton fabric that was recycled from a pair of capris that I owned that had literally bitten the dust and was in too bad shape to donate to Goodwill yet some parts of the capris could be salvaged for doll clothes.
