More American Girl Doll Clothes

The other night Leah's mom noticed her doll tucked in all proper on the pillow and Leah (age 6) scrunched up at the foot of the bed! So here is the blanket and pillow and nightgown I made to give the doll her own sleep station.

For the nightgown I extended the length and sleeve on McCall's 2609-top, and used narrow bias tape on neck. I used two sections of slightly gathered 1 3/4" lace for a collar and bottom ruffle. The back enclosure is velcro, applied as directed for other tops and gowns in the pattern.
Leah's doll also "requested" this purple colonial dress and shawl, also from McCall's 2609.

Just another stitch in the seams of love that bind us over the miles! From icy Washington to sunny California, I hope there is another grandchild that knows how much I care.
