|Mattel Petite Fashionistas 97 deboxed|
Let's say hello to Mattel Fashionistas #97 "Meow Mix" from 2018. Her East Philly name is Katherine Par. (No, she has no known connection to the historical Katherine Parr.) Our Katherine aka Kat-with-a-K is a petite Fashionistas. While Kat loved her kitty-themed dress, she wanted to change into something more casual, something a little more mature looking. So she rummaged through our doll closets. Below are her best fits. Please share them with the petite Fashionistas in your life.

Kat's first exciting find was a pair of Mattel Flavas's jeans (from Denim and Diamonds Kiyoni Brown) that she paired with a Mattel Fashion Fever cropped white top with silver lips across the bodice. Flavas Kiyoni Brown and Happy D were the shortest Flavas dolls and the same height. So if you have any Flavas fashions for either of those two dolls, your petite Fashionistas can share them.

Kat next found Cali Girl Lea's cut-off jeans. Another perfect fit.
Although the everGirl dolls were intended for younger teen dolls, Kat felt that these everGirl jeans were sufficiently age-neutral for her to wear without looking too juvenile. She might have the pants' legs hemmed.

Then there was this slightly "off" Mattel My Scene stretch denim romper. Kat thinks that this fashion just missed perfection because the bodice was intended for a fuller breasted doll.

And, of course, there were some fashion misses like a pair of R&D Susie's jeans and a pair of Mattel My Scene Barbie's bootcut jeans. We decided to show those two misses so you could see how those two fashions would not suit.

The R&D Susie jeans are not wide enough for petite Fashionistas. The My Scene jeans' legs hang over Kat's feet. "Not good looks," Kat decided. Let us know what fashions your petite Fashionistas wear. Thanks for your suggestions.
