Samantha's Middy Outfit

Because of how popular this style was in 1904, many Victorian girls—including Samantha—had an outfit like this one: A middy dress trimmed in black braid with an anchor, a crest, and stars on the back of the big square collar. A sailor’s tam, or cap. High button shoes in black and white to complete her outfit.

 Bronze shiny bo's'n's (boatswain's) whistle was phased out 2005.

I don't have the whistle or her summer amusements (yet).

Mini Samantha has her own custom Middy outfit by Auntie Robin.


  1. Rhonda, your dolls look adoranle in their matching outfits.

  2. This makes me even more excited for the Samantha comeback, as I never got her before she was archived. Love that midi outfit!!

  3. I love this outfit! I was big into the sailor look in the 80s so when I got my Melody and saw Samantha's Middy Dress outfit was going to be retired I had to add it to my collection. It's the only item I have from Samantha's collection. I do not have the whistle.

    Love that Aunti Robyn was able to make a mini version for Snickerdoodle Samantha.
