Dress Like Your Doll

The School Suit for children.

The matching outfit was available as the School Suit; it was phased out around 2000.

  • Blouse: $30
  • Suit: $78 (later increased to $80)

A satin bow came with the suit and pinned separately to the neck.


  • The different lining prints are to relate to the details in Addy Learns a Lesson, where Momma used different lining prints to line the jacket in the outfit she made.
  • The statement on the pin is a real quote from both 1860 campaigns and stated by U.S. Congressman Martin F. Conway on December 5, 1861, and was a running slogan of the Republican Party at the time through the Civil War.
  • The outfit (sans jacket) was shown under Addy's Winter Coat until its retirement, when it was replaced with Addy's Tartan Plaid Dress.
