|Can Tiffany Taylor wear Basic Colin's fashion?|
A reader of this blog who recently acquired 1970s dolls, Super Size Christie (Mattel) and Tiffany Taylor (Ideal), wants to dress the two in up-to-date fashions. I was asked to suggest possible fashions they can wear. Since I did not know, I asked others who suggested Butterfly Ring, CED, and Evangeline Ghastly fashions as possibilities.
I was not able to try any of my on-hand fashions on Super Size Christie because she is NRFB. Since I have CED's Basic Colin Dehan, I decided to see if her denim fashion fits Tiffany Taylor.
|Tiffany's body fits in Colin's fashion, but it is obvious she is wearing clothing that belongs to someone else.|
|Colin has a small waist, but Tiffany's is even smaller as illustrated by the extra room in the waist of the jeans she borrowed from Colin.|
|Tiffany wears a snug-fitting hand-sewn-for-Lizette fashion|
I shared this information with the collector, but I believe finding contemporary clothing sewn especially for Super Size Christie and Tiffany Taylor is the best option.
Finding coordinating shoes that fit the two will be a separate task. Facets by Marcia possibly has some.
In the first image above, Tiffany Taylor wears one of the twelve extra boxed fashions made for the doll by Ideal. I have one additional Ideal-made Tiffany Taylor fashion shown below (it screams '70s, which is why it is still in the box).
