    thank you for being so kind as to share. Just bought my my granddaughter her 1st American girl and she thinks she is getting a cabbage patch. I can’t wait for her to see it. I think I will be very busy making clothes.

      I did a lot of American dolls clothes as well, they are much easier to sew than barbie doll clothes, but it requires more time, since the doll is bigger.
      Thanks for coming by,
      Happy sewing!
      Miss B

    Again, thank you for sharing. If you need a new idea, I have been looking for an easy dress for the American doll which is kind of like a prairie dress. Love your doll clothes!

      Leave me a message if you’d like me to post a pattern of yours. You would have to take the step by step pictures and write the steps, just like I do it. I don’t have much time anymore to post anything.
      But I am sure readers would be happy to see new sewing patterns.
      Miss B

    Yellow dress is so pretty just don’t know if i’m smart enough to make it without a pattern. I’ve been looking on the net for an old fashiond bonnet pattern but haven’t had any luck yet. So many things say “free” you go to the sight and it isn’t free!
