The First Rainy Elfgirl
Because of her ample physical endowments (i.e., large bust) Solange can be difficult to dress. This makes her no less demanding when it comes to wardrobe. Her dressmaker's first attempt to clothe her--using a magazine pattern designed for a different doll--resulted in a shapeless mess. Thankfully, no photographs survive to document the fiasco.
Her next garment (not counting the standard issue red bathing suit in which she arrived) met with greater acclaim. Called "1790," the dress is a period piece from Adams-Harris Pattern Company. The peach-cream-and-raspberry confection fits Solange like a glove (and sounds yummy enough to eat).
