What factors do you think about when shopping for doll clothing? What makes you add a piece of clothing to the shopping cart? What will definitely change your mind? I'm gradually building a wardrobe for one of my dolls and being on a self-imposed budget has made me think more deeply about the value of each piece of doll clothing I'm potentially adding to my collection - especially since doll clothes have often cost more than my own! Surprisingly, my considerations are very similar to how I buy my own outfits. I follow a capsule wardrobe system and now apparently that's how my doll wardrobe is going to be, although that wasn't my intention from the start. This is fine since he wears contemporary outfits, but I imagine the situation would be very different with a fantasy-themed doll. While I used to focus predominantly on whether a shirt/jacket etc. suited his aesthetic and whether it was close to what I have in mind, factors such as material, workmanship and whether it will go well with what he already has, have become important to me.
