    motorcycle jacket for American Girl doll

    I just finished a motorcycle jacket for my DGD's American Girl doll. It is so cute!! I used a faux suede fabric that really looks like leather and a hot pink fabric for the lining! This is a 5 inch separating zipper I ordered from www.zipperthatdoll.com and the belt buckle from www.crscraft.com. Both were shipped promptly. I now have to make another one for another DGD and maybe a matching jacket for the girls as well! I don't know what I started!

    Amazing. I'm sewing 18" doll clothes for the Salvation Army Christmas event - but my efforts don't come close to what you have made!

    great work, don't show it to anyone, you'll be making jackets till next year.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
