A new TJIF post!

Remember TJIF? In my dolly world, it stands for Thank Julia It’s Friday. I decided to bring it back today because of one of my new followers declared in a comment that today is Friday, and she got 2 new Carpatina dolls. Julia is wearing one of her newest outfits today. She is wearing the Baker Street Outfit, and the majority of the Steampunk Extras.


Thanks to all my followers, with a special shoutout to the one with the really long username that I have nicknamed Pasha (like the eccentric Russian ice dancer from the 90s)!

Dolly A-Z: Julia

Today is a day for Carpatina Julia.  She’s beautiful.  Her dresses are beautiful.  Highly recommended.

Julia is 18 inches tall, just like the American Girls, but she is much thinner.  She also has teeny tiny feet.  She’s about the same size as my new Kidz n Cats Rieke, but Rieke has joints at her knees, wrists, and elbows, and Julia does not.

Today Julia is wearing a dress called Avalon Maiden.  I took her photo across the river from the Tower of London.  It looks more like she’s standing in front of a photograph (which she is, but Isabel in front of the Globe Theatre looked much better).

I’ve put a lot of Julia photos on the blog before.  Here they are:

Look who can fit into the larger size Carpatina clothes! Australian Girls! Let me tell a little story about how I made this discovery:

The official site for clothes for Australian Girl dolls is called Tillie’s Aussie Doll Clothes. (http://aussiedollclothes.com.au/). I’ve looked at this site a few times, but there were no outfits special enough to justify shipping from Australia. But, I recognized some of the outfits as Carpatina outfits! There was a small chance that Carpatina made outfits specially for Australian Girl, but there was a larger chance that the large size Carpatina outfits would fit Australian Girl (especially since the outfits my mom made from Carpatina patterns fit pretty well–check out my Yay! It fits! Post). So I bought a bunch, 9 in total. If they didn’t fit Sheila, I knew they’d fit 37 other dolls in my house! Some, like the dress in the photo, have matching dresses in Carpatina Julia’s size, but others are only made in the American Girl size. And they fit Australian Girl dolls! Now I just need to get Sheila some new shoes (I ordered some this morning. I got them from moniques.com. The 85 mm fit her best. Choices are limited for her fat feet, so I just got some basic Mary Janes in black, white, and silver.) I’ll be sure to show you more of these beautiful dresses in the future.

TJIF Guinevere

I think Julia looks amazing in this dress. It’s called Guinevere. It’s made of linen. It ties on each side. It comes with shoes and a crown. I love it.

Julia’s wearing the same dress she wore last week, but this week Amelia and Matilda from A Girl For All Time borrowed a couple of Julia’s dresses (Matilda’s wearing the dress Julia came in and Amelia’s wearing the Edwardian Tea Dress).  Julia is about 2 inches taller than the A Girl For All Time dolls, but only a little bit fatter, so the dresses fit pretty well.  Tea Party Time!
