These are my out and about outfits for 4 of my dolls.

I originally wanted to pack my dolls and clothes into a box decorated to be a suitcase but in the end I opted for cheap folders in the sale rather than expensive boxes that then needed quite a lot more work to make them how I wanted.

Here's the Design Team:
