Tea Party Doll Dress


Saturday found me at home all day with just my two youngest.  Very rare during the summer!  I did some cleaning, some laundry and some baking.  But the best part was the couple of hours in my sewing room.

Deanna saved up for the better part of a year for an American Girl doll (funny b/c we're Canadian) and she finally got it earlier this month.  It's her birthday soon so I wanted to make her doll a dress.  It's the Tea Party Doll Dress from Little Things To Sew by Liesl Gibson.  I made the dress an inch longer than the pattern and skipped the hem facing (it's a doll dress after all) but otherwise I followed the instructions.   I think it turned out pretty well and it was sure great to be in my sewing room again.

  2. Cute! I've made this pattern too, although I did put in the hem facing. I just machine stitched it rather than hand stitching like the pattern calls for. I love the ric rac on the bottom.
