Two of my granddaughters have birthdays this week and the one turning 8 has an American Girl doll and showed me a picture of a dress she wanted. I'm thinking....I don't think I have time....need to be working on my house and some other sewing projects I have taken on. But wait a minute, of course I can. Isn't it my dream to have girls to sew for. So if I make a dress for one's doll, I will of course make one for the other as they celebrate on the same day....tomorrow. I have sewn clothes for them often, but just did my first doll dress for my 10 year olds American Girl doll in October. Now in Febuary, I'll have another to do. Can't wait.
Here's what I came up with.
They are made of eyelet fabric with little daisey trim on the skirt and bolero. One ribbon is pink and white check and the other is a sheer red with white polka dots. Wanna know the best part....I did it with mostly things I had on hand.
