It is a lovely pattern with some of the outfits still been suitable for todays fashions and a couple that could be altered slightly to make them more up to date.
The wedding dress is a real delight, I would imagine that it is every little girls dream.
I also love the cable sweaters, what fun to dress the dolls up to play in the snow.
The pattern was a great find from a thrift shop in Mount Dora for the princely sum of 50c. I wonder how many times it has been used and how many little knitted outfits are still around.
See you soon.
Oh how I loved my Cindy doll.... but it makes me feel really old when 1984 is classed as vintage! ;-)ReplyDelete
I am not sure it is Gilly, there are so many definitions of vintage, its not really clear.Delete
Oh I do love your Vintage pattens, and this one is a gem as it brings back so many memories.
Wow, that brings back lovely memories of my Sister and I playing together. Those patterns are just lovely, especially if you can make them (I couldn't), they will be such a joy to make. Woo xxReplyDelete
Omigoodness. My mum knitted all my Sindy doll clothes. I thought the little kitted dresses were fab!ReplyDelete
They are stunning mama. You should get some made up for Lily and Daisy to put on their Barbies.. xReplyDelete
Very sweet. In the US, they were Ken and Barbie and I played with mine all the time as a young girl. Thanks for a walk down memory lane. Have a great day, HeatherReplyDelete
Back in the past !!!! Make me smile...ReplyDelete
Have a nice day !
Thank you for bringing back childhood memories. Yes, we girls love playing with our dolls and dressing them up.ReplyDelete
I love the knitted outfit but I do not remember Cindy and Paul. Guess my daughters had outgrown dolls by then. :) Little Wilbur's quilt is turning out beautifully!ReplyDelete
They were made by pedigree in England from 1963.ReplyDelete
Oh my, these are so cute and fun, my friend :) Happy day to you. Hugs!ReplyDelete
Fabulous!!! I don't think that I will be hoping for any of these in grown up sizes, but they would still be great for a doll wouldn't they! xxReplyDelete
I'd never heard of Cindy and Paul before now, but I see they were made by Mattel; we're they Barbie and Ken sized? I loved Barbies and still have all of mine. My Barbies would have been from about the same era as the dolls in your patterns, early 80's through late 80's. But I still play with them sometimes now. :)ReplyDelete
They were the same size as Barbie and Ken but were made by Pedigree in England from 1963.Delete
I remember Cindy but couldn't have said who Paul was!!!ReplyDelete
That is a wonderful pattern book. It's fun to look back on past styles even for dolls!
That's brilliant, I used to have a Cindy doll & a neighbour used to knit me clothes for her. xReplyDelete
I think I do remember Cindy but Paul, not so much. I had a Barbie-like doll called Mary Make-up... you could dye her hair and do her makeup. I made many outfits for her...and I know where she is too! I may just get her out and blog about her...lol!ReplyDelete
I had Mary Make-up as well. I've never heard anyone mention her since I was a child, brings back memories.Delete
What fun! I didn't have anything like this growing up.ReplyDelete
