An American Girl Doll Dress

A co-worker asked me if I would make a dress for her granddaughter’s American Girl® Doll – one that would coordinate with the dress she’d be wearing at an upcoming wedding.

I borrowed a neighbor’s doll to model, modified a standard dress pattern, added the belt & I think the resemblance is pretty good!tamdoll makes American Girl Doll dress
This was a fun side project. I made 2 versions out of cotton until I was satisfied with the bodice length and how the neckline fit – even doing those, the dress came together quickly (faster than a person-sized dress, for sure!) I hope she likes it, I think it’s cute.

  4. I've never had an american doll. Saw a few big dolls at toys r us and they look quite creepy, even for me. I'm really thinking of making a new outfit for my Melly. But where do I find the time?

  5. You did a perfect job of recreating the little dress! Love the color! I could sure use some help with the St. Nicholas and Scandiclaus capes! Any chance you might pop over for a bit? I'll make a cake!
