I made this batch of doll clothes in May.
I took pictures with the intent of documenting them on the blog, but as so often happens, I didn’t do it right away. If I were all smooth and slick, I wouldn’t have mentioned how old these pictures are, but, hey, we’re all about honesty that makes me look like a slacker here at NerdBliss.
The important part is that I promptly mailed them to Sabrina, my BFF Kate’s daughter, my niece and owner of an American Girl doll. Since her birthday is close to Christmas, I thought it might be nice to send a summer vacation care package, plus any reason to both use my stash of remnant fabrics and shop for additional pieces or patterns.
Enough with the chit-chat and on to the pictures:
Hounds tooth skirt, navy leggings, camisole.
I had to make the cami to bridge the weird gap in the ruffle shirt. Not sure why the pattern was designed this way.
With the vest. Despite the weird gap, I like the trendy look of McCall’s M6480
I made the vest reversible since the lining – made from Klingon wedding scraps – was too pretty to waste.
The reversible part wasn’t part of the pattern, but it was simple enough to tuck in the seams where the front and back connect under the arms.
The hat sells the look. Sadly, I didn’t get a better picture.
Real leather boots. They were a hassle to sew.
I winged it on these, but they came out well enough. I was on a mission to make shoes since learning Sabrina’s doll only had one pair. Unacceptable even for a plastic girl.
