New! Posable Glitter Girls Dolls – 14 inch dolls for ages 3 and Up

This post has affiliate links. Please see my disclosure here.

Oh wow, have you seen these new dolls by Battat / Our Generation? The Glitter Girls, as seen in this post, have had a makeover! The little girls in your life will love being able to pose these dolls (their arms and legs bend!) and they still fit the same doll clothes as the wellie wishers dolls.  So how do the Glitter Girls compare to the Wellie Wishers dolls?

As you can see below, the dolls are very nearly the exact same size.

I purchased two of these cuties, but only opened Lacy for now. Eline is still in her box in case I need her for a gift or raffle this fall. There are ten different dolls and even more outfits and accessories to choose from. See them on Amazon here.  They have bright, cheery eyes, and warm smiles. They just look like they are having fun!  The original Glitter Girls, as I posted about HERE, didn’t have the same whimsical look to them.  I think these new girls will have much more appeal to the target audience, which says ages 3 and up.  Both the old and new Glitter Girls have amazing, soft hair!!

Ice cream anyone?

These dolls have a hard body, but they have softer limbs. You can feel the wires inside they vinyl that bend to let them pose. At first, it’s a little off putting – feeling a little rubbery, but as you work the doll a bit, and learn a little more how she works, I think the play value is very high!  I did have a more difficult time getting these new girls to stand on their own, than either the old style or wellie wishers, but that’s because they hold their weight a little differently and just need to be adjusted a little more.

Their shoes are plastic, and the clothing is very trendy, although a bit light to the touch. But that is okay, your new doll will soon be dressed in Oh Sew Kat! fashions anyways, like Lacy in the Bloomer Buddies dresses above. 😀

And here’s Lacy in the fall batik Sugar n Spice dress from this post. Even the shoes I bought for my wellie wishers fit these dolls.

With a low price point of $20 and availability on Amazon and in select Target stores, these dolls are sure to be on every girls’ holiday gift list. The hardest question is, “Which one will she choose?”  I still love the American Girl® line and all that it stands for, but I have to say that these dolls and their accessories from Our Generation® are hard to beat for the price, especially because every little girl knows that having more than one doll is a lot more fun!

Bloomer Buddies 50s Style Dress for Maryellen Larkin – A BeForever Pattern Hack!

BeForever character, Maryellen Larkin, is a ten year old girl living in Florida in 1953.  Fifties fashions were all about fun prints, gingham, and full skirts!

With just a few modifications, you can make a cute 50s style dress  and scarf for your Maryellen doll (or her friends) using the Bloomer Buddies pattern from Oh Sew Kat!  I used THIS PIN from my Maryellen Pinterest board as my inspiration.  Make the scarf from matching fabric from THIS tutorial.

First, you need the pattern. Find it here.

Sewing patterns for 18 inch dolls by OH Sew kat dress and top and bloomers

The pattern has a little slimmer silhouette than the pinned image.  I made two modifications when I cut out my dress.

  1.  Move the dress center front fold about 1/2 inch.  This will give an extra inch of fullness to the front of the dress. You do not need to change the lining, as the finished front will still be the same size, just have more fullness.
  2. Add pockets to your dress front before you gather it and sew it to the yoke. Even though you can do it after, it’s just easier to work while it’s still flat.   I made my pockets so they would be two inches square when finished.  I used one edge on the fold, so my pocket pieces were 4.5 x 2.5 inches.  Press in all edges by 1/4th inch first.  With right sides together, fold in half and stitch the two short sides, plus the corners and some of the long side, leaving a 1/2 inch opening to turn.  Turn and press, tucking in your opening along the crease lines.  Top stitch the top edge if desired, then add to the front of the dress where the hands end up, stitching around both short sides and the bottom.

Maryellen Larkin BeForever Doll in blue Bloomer Buddies 50s dress

  1.  Cut one 8 1/2 inch square of fabric.
  2. With right sides together, fold in half along the diagonal.  Start 1/2 inch from one corner near the fold, and stitch along the edge, around the top corner, and back towards the fold.  Stop 1/2 inch before you reach the fold.
  3.  Turn right side out and press well, being certain to push the top corner out.  Tuck the raw edges to the inside of the corners as you press.  Top stitch if desired.
  4. Cut 3/8th inch wide elastic to 2 inches.  Tuck each end into a corner of the scarf and stitch in place.

Who wore it best Bloomer Buddies doll clothes

Ready for some Springtime Fun?  Today you choose the look! Who wore it best? Kelly or Harper? This easy, breezy outfit is perfect for the early days of spring!  The pretty dress pairs up with some longer bloomers to add a little warmth and cartwheel protection. This tunic length top and knee length bloomers were made using the BLOOMER BUDDIES sewing pattern which is also available for 16″ Animators and 14.5 inch Wellie Wishers dolls. Find the pattern here.

Harper rocked the sunglasses.  Kelly wanted to try it as a dress, but it was too short.  (This is the tunic length- the dress length option is perfect). We had to quickly add a blue hem band to make it work.
