Default Another Batch of American Girl Doll Clothes

We are flying out to WA State tomorrow and this is what my granddaughter "ordered" from our last visit. They are all made from the 30 minute doll clothes book I got from Sewing with Nancy. Hobby Lobby had Simplicity patterns on sale for $.99 yesterday so I got a few of those, but they are much more labor intensive. Maybe now I can get back to quilting!! The first one doesn't photograph right. The jacket is purple fabric with gold. Much darker in person. And I will move the button on the brown and blue top.

Really cute outfits! I will have to look for the 30 Minute Dollclothes. I also make some AG clothes for my DGD, but find that they are very labor intensive.

Those are precious! I watched that episode of "Sewing With Nancy" & was intrigued by the book. Looks like I'll have to get it now. Travel safe & have a great time with your kids!

Great Pic! I ordered the book after seeing what you have made...of course I haven't used it yet...but it's definitely on my list of "to do's". I have 5 granddaughters and I want to make them each several outfits for their dolls. I've bought a bunch of FQ's and just need to get started. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

Very nice! Those are addicting, I made 40 outfits for my DGD's American Girl Doll, then I had to make 40 hangers too. Then I found nice trunk to store the acessories in. I do love the clothes and they are fun to make. Your's are adorable!

Adorable! Will look for that pattern. Agree that Simplicity et al are labor intensive.

Cute! I loved making some AG clothes for my niece when she got her doll but haven't done that for a while--she's now 26 and graduated college last year!!
