We bought a fabric grab-bag at the thrift store, but most of it turned out to be half-sewn leather and suede scraps. Maybe it was unwanted stuff from a factory?
Then I saw a piece of purple suede in there that wasn't too heavy for dolls, and it just called out "Crissy."
vintage Simplicity Crissy pattern 8519. The purse I put together from a scrap that was left.
Crissy's burgundy turtleneck.
Cost of outfits:
Pattern: free download--cost of ink and paper, not much
Bag of suede scraps--$1, and we still have some left.
Thread and snaps--all on hand, didn't cost much
TOTAL for jumper, tunic, vest and purse: maybe $2?
Seems like a "suede" deal to me.
**That's a joke for Electric Company fans. Doesn't Morgan Freeman's outfit look a bit like Crissy's purple stuff?
