Alice was not on my original wish list of Later Gotz dolls. I realize her scout uniform is modeled after similar outfits from the 60's, but I prefer "little girl" attire. I am a fan of braids/plaits though, and only a handful of Later Gotz dolls have them. Desiring more dolls with braids, I decided that changing her clothes was a better option than braiding the hair of another doll without a full center part.
I had every intention of finding her a different outfit, but her scout uniform has grown on me. And my kids like it, as it vaguely resembles my son's Cub Scout uniform.
