Ok so. Friday I went putzing around the eBay orphanarium and clothing shop. :P

I went for the express purpose of finding clothes for my patchies... And I hit the mother lode.

Someone was selling this absolutely massive lot of clothing, and I won it. The massive lot of clothing arrived today, clean and in good shape. No tears, rips, stains etc and only one faded piece. I can entirely deal with this.

OH, and the one pair of jeans in the lot has actual functioning pockets. Pics should be forthcoming as soon as I get everything out of this massive box and stay tuned. There will be an actual review.
The other day, during all my eBaying, I bought two dresses for Addy, one outfit for Kaya, and another hunk of Josefina's meet outfit.

Kaya got a pink t-shirt and striped leggings. I think they're Springfield but I'm not sure. They're really nice, but that's a topic for another post.

Addy on the other hand got her Flower-picking outfit and a really nice handmade outfit that I am right now squeeing over...

I was a little concerned about the flower-picking dress, because most people on eBay will label crap PC that is actually Mattel and even though I wouldn't mind taking out a couple ounces of stuffing so Mattel clothes fit, I can't. My Addy's head is, as I found out a moment ago when I was changing her clothes, is held on by a zip tie, and I really am in no mood whatsoever to go snipping a zip tie, especially since I'm not even sure where to find replacement zip ties. I wish to goodness that whomever removed her neck strings had just left them alone unless they were falling apart. Ugh.

BUT the flower picking dress arrived in my mail today, in an A*G box even, with the hair ribbon still in plastic. And it fits. Not only does it fit but it fits well. So I'm thinking I actually got a PC dress after all and that someone had a clue what they were doing.

Now, on to the squee. The other outfit Addy got is a rust-colored cotton dress with pin tucks in the bodice and an embroidered skirt. This came with an apron, a pair of striped pantaloons (Hey, people familiar with historical undies, would Addy have actually worn pantaloons?), and a matching striped bonnet. And now. Here is what I squeed over. The pantaloons do not have elastic. They have draw strings. ACTUAL tie-able draw strings! :D SOMEONE knows their history!

Sadly, I don't have time at this moment to give a full 100% review, but I'll edit it in in a bit when back from tutoring. Blech tutoring.
