Every doll (waldorf or not) should have a great wardrobe !
Building a small collection of doll clothes makes playing with dolls much more appealing from a child’s point of view. (Isn’t that the main reason they always want those plastic dolls ? It’s not the doll – it’s the wardrobe !!) Different outfits & accessories extends their playtime exponentially – inspiring new storylines or giving them ideas for elaborating upon old ones.
SKILLS for children : Dressing & undressing the doll teaches the doll’s Mama ( or Dada) how to put clothes on & take them off (obviously…) , how to keep track of various parts of a whole (where is that other sock?) & even how to wash clothes (many kids love getting wet & soapy !). By adding buttons, bows & even zippers you can provide a young child with a fun way to practice their fine-motor skills (without them even realizing it).

One last thing…
Another, less obvious benefit of creating a wardrobe for your child’s doll, is that they too may become interested in designing (& making) pieces along with you. It’s never too early to start being creative !
Have fun & send me links to any hats you make. I’d love to add them to my new gallery !
