    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!!
    She who dies with the most fabric didn't sew fast enough!

    When I was doing AG doll clothes I used the patterns from
    http://www.morrisseydolls.com/

    Very easy to use and the price was right.

    Cute! Yes, doll clothing is labor intensive...small work ! Hope this has been fun for you !

    Your dresses are very well made and so cute.
    I am in the process of making some for my granddaughter. Although she is too young, she currently plays with a doll that is 18". I have ordered the "Springfield" doll which is supposed to be the correct measurements for the patterns. Will post pictures when I get the doll.

    Thanks everyone. I am trying to upload a picture of the doll in one of the dresses. The clothes look so much cuter on the doll! I was so surprised because I liked them when I made them, but what a difference on. Let's see if this works because I had to resize using an outside app.

    Now that is what I can do on my down time at work on night shift. Cut out the patterns for different sewing projects and sew them at home. Of course a few wil get donated at work.
