My Toni doll likes to have outfits for all occasions. This summer, as people started to travel again, she requested some resort outfits. “Where are you planning to go?” I asked. I think she gets these notions from watching television.
She said she could go to Florida and stay at a beach resort and then take a cruise. I played along, but knew that this vacation was not happening in 2021 with the horrible pandemic in high gear in Florida. At least, planning her wardrobe for the trip would keep her occupied for a while.
She decided that she needed a swim suit, a summer dress, and a few other pieces. She tried on this flamingo swim suit. I think it might look fun as a top with a long pink skirt over it. Her black shoes will be fine as they coordinate with the black on the flamingo’s beak.
“You’ll need a cover-up for your beach outfit in case you feel cool when you get out of the water,” I told her. Already, I was wondering where to get a Toni-sized beach towel. Do dolls need to wear sunscreen when they go to the beach?
For a dress to wear when she goes sightseeing or goes to lunch, I talked her into this one. Pastel colors are great for summer. I’ll need to make a sun hat for her and also get her some sunglasses.
The outfits are all from a batch that I found on Amazon that were listed as Baby Doll Clothes (for 15 Inch Bitty Baby Dolls and American 18 Inch Girl Dolls). They would fit the larger Toni dolls better than my small P-90.
