American Girl Doll Party Dress Pattern

So, I've become a little addicted to sewing new outfits for my daughter's American Girl Doll.  I have a ton of fabric in my basement.  Yes - it's a little known fact that I am a fabric horder.



You may remember my first attempt at sewing for her doll.  I made a bikini from dollar store underwear.  It was a huge hit.  In fact she is wearing her bikini today because we're heading out to a pool party.



This time I made her a party dress.  I bought the PDF pattern on Etsy as an instant download.  Shopping for patterns may be my new addiction as I love the fact that you literally have the pattern in hand immediately.  This isn't a free pattern but at 3 patterns for $12 it is practically free. 

This pattern was really easy to follow. I wasn't sure how fiddly it would be since doll clothes are so small so I didn't use my favourite fabric. I was actually surprised how easy it was and how great the final dress turned out. I have since made a few more using this pattern as birthday gifts for friends. 

One of the things I love the most about sewing these American Girl Doll clothes is that they take very little fabric, they're quick to whip up and I get that instant gratification of having a finished product.  I think it also helps that my daughter is just so happy to have an expanded doll wardrobe and she LOVES every outfit.

I hope I've inspired you to try your hand at making a new outfit.  Happy sewing!
