I used to sew the American Girl doll clothes for my youngest daughter about 13 years ago. She sooo loved them. I thought I'd share my little doll clothes collection with y'all...lol.
These are the patterns that Pleasant Company used to put out for the dolls they had at the time. These patterns are for Felicity, Kirsten, Addy, Samantha, Molly, and Josephina. I'm going to have to check if they still offer patterns for the new dolls that have come out since my daughter grew up. My new generation has chosen Kit, Emily, and Felicity (which I already have).
These are some books that I've used. Most of them are written by Joan Hinds and Jean Becker. These books have a HUGE selection of outfits for the decriminating doll.
These patterns are mainly by Susan Payne of Fancy Frocks, Beth Dix of Primrose Lane, and Debbie Glenn of Love and Stitches. These are some talented ladies!
Of course, there are the big 3 patterns.

Sunday, October 24, 2010
It was a really good day today. I feel like I got alot accomplished. Since Sunday is the only day of the week I have off, I try to catch up with everything that I can. Today was my youngest grandaughter, Taylor's, birthday. She is now a big 4 year old!! She's quite impressed with herself. lol
I've also put together a little Dorothy outfit for her...all I have left to do is add some pinafore buttons, a zipper, and a hem. She is super excited.
I've cut out the Indian outfit for my oldest grandaughter. I'll be sewing on that after work tomorrow. This one is easy-peasy.
