With 7 children of my own I never gave doll clothes a second thought. But here I am now, having fun with my first attempts, in time for Valentine's Day!Mc Call's Pattern 2609 was used for the hooded coat, petticoat, bloomers and pinafore dress.
Cheerleader outfit was made from McCall's pattern 3900. JoAnn's carries a line of knock off American Girl dolls, clothes and accessories at a fraction of the AG cost. I got the tennis shoes at JoAnn's, with a half off coupon, off course! Pompoms were made of 1/8 inch ribbon in 5.5 inch strips, folded in half and bound and sewn with thread. Then I flipped up one of the strands and sewed down the free end for a handle. Hot glue and blue ribbon were used to finish up the top. The cheer top has a velcro closure but the dress, pinafore and coat use small snaps.
