Alex (Kids n Cats) in a Suit

Posted on

A few people, including someone named Mouse, have showed interest in the Design a Friend morning suit I posted about a few months ago, wanting to know if it would fit a Kidz n Cats doll. So I had fun playing dress-up and the answer is, yes, it certainly does. I got the camera out to show just how well!

The trousers are the perfect length, the waist is correct and allows for the shirt tails to be tucked in without bunching, and as you can see the long tailed morning coat also fits nicely, all in all a very good look for Alex. I think the suit actually fits this doll much better.

The shoes fit, though they are a little loose and would probable work better with some socks underneath – they’re secure enough and he stands in them which is the main thing however.

The coat is perfectly fitted and the length is about right even though Alex has shorter legs then the Design a Friend dolls, or my Gotz Harry Potter doll that originally modelled the outfit.

Its quite a posh suit for a little boy though, and I think I prefer the outfit without the coat, now Alex is a pageboy at the wedding rather than the groom, and doesn’t he look darling?

As I said in the original post, this is an excellent outfit, well designed and constructed with good quality fabrics, one of the best outfits from the Design a Friend range, and ideal for Kidz n Cats to wear. Alex is feeling very handsome indeed and looking round for the bridesmaid now..

  1. The bridesmaids will be fighting over him! Good play value from the outfit and some nice individual pieces for mix and match. Good find!

    • Will your little boy be trying it? πŸ™‚

      • Possibly, though somehow I can’t see him in the tailcoat, and his chances of remaining tidy for more than thirty seconds are slim… πŸ˜‰

      • Bribery works wonders.. πŸ™‚

      • He got a hair wash yesterday, so he looks slightly less scruffy. Maybe some day. πŸ˜‰

        (By the way, K&R have re-done their website, and made your side-bar link go “Oops!”. Leaving the Main.htm bit off will fix it.)

      • Oh thanks for that, she’d mentioned she was redoing the site months back and I checked back frequently, no change, so I stopped bothering. Typical! Will fix the link and go and see her new version too πŸ™‚

  3. Thank you SO MUCH Blue! Saving up for it right now, currently have Β£4!
    Many thanks,
    Mouse πŸ˜€

  4. Hi Blue, I just happened to be surfing for a moment and saw your post. Yes, website re-done, but still a work in progress and more to be done as yet. It’s been a bit of an uphill struggle and it’s still not completely as I want it, but I’m getting there! Any comments would be really welcome πŸ™‚
