I went to AGPLA, this month, and fell in love with Lindsey on display with all the retired GOTY's. My DD has continued to say how much she loves Lindsey, but I had yet to find one in good condition, and in her meet outfit! (I have been looking for over a year!)
Well... we got back from our trip, and I happened to check CL, and found this beautiful girl in gorgeous condition, with her meet outfit, for a fair price! Best of all, the seller is an AGPT board member to boot! Now... will I give her to DD... I am smitten with this cutie-pie! She will be in hiding at least until Christmas!

Lindsey's very special to me. I received her back in 2005 and she'd been previously loved and abused. Poor girl. I'd once thought of sending her in to be fixed but now I can't bear to change her. She's perfect to me and I suppose that's all that matters anyway.

My Lindsey, who was usually dressed in 1950s wear, is on eBay at the moment - I've shifted my 1950s focus to my Gene collection. She looks really cute in Emily's collection, which I think is more late 1940s anyway. But apparently I don't have photos uploaded of those.

My Lindsey lives in the 1930s. She looks just like my grandmother, who has blue eyes and dark short curly hair, and was born in 1924 just like Kit. Here she is in a couple of Bunny Bear dresses I have made for her:
I don't think her hair is that hard to manage. Luckily my Lindsey was well taken care of by her former owner, but her hair was kind of straight when I got her. It does tend to straighten if it is brushed a lot, but if you wet it, the curls come right back. I just wet her hair, finger-curl it, and it dries perfectly curled and refreshed. I wet it and let it dry about every 3 months.
My Lindsey came to me naked, and before I was able to gather up most of her meet outfit she wore velour lounge pants that I made, with a sweater I had knitted. I like her in jeans and t-shirt, and then of course for Hanukkah she looks adorable in the Hanukkah outfit of "velvet" skirt and angora sweater.
Lindsey's hair does get dry easily, but that is more due to the fact that she was made in 2001-2002. She and the older #21s have thick curly hair which is more prone to frizz and overall dryness. We often complain that dolls like Rebecca have thin hair, but the truth is that the thin hair makes for better curls and better upkeep of the curls.
My Lindsey's hair kept its curl. I did find that the few times I slept with her really matted the curl down. However, I was able to finger-curl her hair back to its original state. What I couldn't tame was the dryness. I wish I'd known about braid spray back when I got her originally as that would've helped prevent the dryness in the first place.
So I got her a new head, and her hair is still pretty silky (although thicker than the newer dolls' curls). I haven't really touched it, but when I do, I'm going to use braid spray. I'd like her hair not to get quite so dry again.

I thought I had more photos of my Lindsey wearing other clothes but these are all I can find this very minute:
She was an eBay girl and actually her hair really wasn't awful at all, only a little dry and losing curl but I couldn't fix it to my satisfaction, so off she went with Anastasia to have her head replaced. I really like her in blue but she is very pretty in pink as well.
Edited to add: Janettegoldstein, I bought that very Coconut outfit specifically with Lindsey in mind but the capris don't fit my girl's *ahem* generous hips lol.
When I found my Lindsey, either you'd pass her up and not even bother to fix her or send her in for a 'new' doll. I, however, took the challenge and now she looks awesome. The only thing I can comment about Tammy is her face.
Face: A The pinwheel blue eyes are unique. The pinwheels look like silver flecks, perfect for a doll who's a cool (summer/winter) skin tone. Her freckles are just too cute! I have used magic eraser to clean her face and not one freckle disappeared; they appear to be cleaner and more obvious. Mine does have the greenish tone, which I didn't notice, but everyone else did. She also has the 'gril' misspelling, which I find hysterical.
My Lindsey pics aren't as good as the others, but why not? I think she would be a great regency doll. Her hair is pretty easy for me, I just put it in rollers every once in a while and fluff it up.
I give her meet boots a C-, because they're cute. (They look great with the meet top and Julie's Skirt Set skirt!) However, they stained Mckenna's feet, and almost everytime I tried to take them off/on her some of the stuff on them pulled off.

I got my Lindsey the year she was introduced because she felt so different to me. I have curly hair and she was kind of the first doll AG released with curly hair. It was towards the end of my "doll playing" phase so she is still in mint condition. Now that I'm an adult collector, she sits in a curio with the rest of my dolls. I agree with everyone above that said she looks great in blue! Also, what is all this talk about a grayish skin tone?? Now I'm wondering if my Lindsey has it!
I have had Lindsey for almost 24 hours now and she is a joy. She is my second (and likely last) AG doll, and she is just wonderful. Like an earlier commenter said, she's just so unique! I purchased Caroline's pale blue dress for her during the recent "free shipping" promo in anticipation of her arrival and Lindsey wears it well. She may live in the Regency with Josefina for a while, but I suspect she will spend quality time in Felicity's wardrobe as well as Kirsten's before it's all over.
