When I was little, my best friend had a doll.  I no longer remember whether the doll was cloth or porcelain; what I do remember is that she had clothes.  I recall at least five outfits, but there might have been more.  She was kept in a basket, and I don’t remember playing with her much–I just remember the clothes.  I always wanted a doll with clothes.

As a teenager, I found a doll pattern with patterns for several outfits–a party dress, a day dress, a coat.  I don’t think she had any pants outfits, being a rather Victorian girl.  I made the doll, and several dresses for her, but I don’t know where she and her patterns ended up.  These days, none of the pattern manufacturers I have easy access to seem to have patterns for dolls with more than one dress.

Thus, I have begun my quest: I’m searching the web for a nice doll pattern, with at minimum patterns for a dress, a blouse, and a skirt and pants.  I can make one for myself, and maybe also for others.
