For my very special niece, I decided to make a few outfits for her American Girl Doll for Christmas. I scored some 18 inch doll patterns at Joann's, 5 for $5 and got to work. I also had been collecting bargain fabric, remnants at Joann's throughout the year for this specific project. I decided I should make Alexa a matching dress as well. I love the pillow case dress for little girls, and it's so easy to make. I also used my Serger Machine for the hems, which worked great. Hopefully as my sewing skills get better I can move along to more complicated patterns.
Here are the patterns I used for the dresses and apron:
Pillow Case Dress, Size 6: Simplicity2391
18inch Doll Dress: Simplicity 7083 **
18 inch Doll Dress, Pillow Case: Simplicity 2302
18 inch Apron: Simplicity 2761
** This dress took some time, so allow accordingly and plan to "step away" to destress!
I think she enjoyed them! What do you think?
