Design a Friend Morning Suit

Posted on

Its wedding bells all over for the Chad Valley Design a Friend dolls, with a bridal dress, morning suit, bridesmaid dress and even a bridesmaid version of the little sister doll available. And I couldn’t resist such a smart suit for my boy dolls.

And here’s Harry looking very smart indeed!

The suit comprises dark grey long tailed jacket with a high collar, matching trousers and a one piece white shirt with attached pale grey waistcoast (vest for the US folk) along with a satin tie in a bright pink shade to match the wedding theme (the bridesmaid dresses are in pink and the bridal gown has pink accents).

The waistcoat fastens with velcro, which is handy for getting access to the shirt front and collar to tie the tie and line it up neatly. The trousers fasten with velcro at the fly and lie nicely flat against the body.

Harry's suit - the shoes

To complete the look, a pair of black shiny lace up shoes is also supplied.

And here’s Harry posing with the little sister bridesmaid doll (reviewed here) to show the full effect of the wedding party play options.

I’m impressed with the design and quality of this outfit, the fabric is heavy duty cotton with a nice sheen to it, the styling is excellent and fits nicely, although its a little loose on Harry (the Design a Friend Josh doll is rather more muscled). The shoes are also well-made and the overall effect is pretty darn elegant. Boy doll outfits are always harder to come by and this is great value too (there’s a suit available in the Carpatina range for more than twice the price, which also only really fits the slim Carpatina bodies). Well done Chad Valley and Argos!

  2. Do the outfit and shoes fit Kidz n Cats Alex? I like the colours they’ve picked and it’s something fresh to the doll marketplace.

  3. I really want to know that too. I’m getting the new Alister this Xmas, and the suit is on special offer right now. I’m saving up to get it in October break, please tell us!
    Many thanks,

    • Hi Mouse, thanks for commenting, I’ve been meaning to try the suit on another doll so this was a good reminder to do so. And it fits perfectly, looks so good I took photos and did a post about it especially for you, definitely a “must-have” outfit there, and will be a perfect welcome gift for Alister when he joins you at Xmas 🙂
