DOLL CLOTHES

Some people enjoy making doll clothes. I am not one of them. Just let me make quilts day in and day out. But we bought my granddaughter an American Girl Doll for Christmas last year, so naturally I enjoy providing for her. My daughter sent me a link to an Etsy shop that I flipped over. The shop belongs to Terri Wilson, and if you are in the market for beautifully made outfits for an American Girl Doll, or any doll of that size, you must check out this site
 This is the dress that I chose to buy for MYSELF! This dress is from Terri's historical section. If you need a doll dress to fit an era, Terri has it! This little dress comes with an Abe Lincoln button and the Emancipation Proclamation. I am afraid I may have to buy a doll for myself now. She has so many adorable clothes that fit the 17th Century.
And below is the outfit I bought for my granddaughter (formerly know as The Plumpkin). How cute is this? And it comes with the saddle shoes! Also see the Poodle Skirts!
 If you are looking for a gift for a little girl, or an adult with a doll habit, take a look at Terri's Etsy Shop. You won't be disappointed. She has a larger variety than you will find at the American Girl website. Love their dolls! Love Terri's doll clothes!

 Oh look! She has doll quilts too! I think she is one of us!

And here is our own American Girl Doll! All dressed up and ready to party! Of course she is taking her own picture with the phone, just like the big girls do!
Thanks for reading my blog! It is fun to share.

The American Girls dolls are so much fun. My 28 year old daughter still has hers. I will have to let her know about this Etsy shop. Such cute clothes and quilts!
Thank you for sharing the link with us.

I do love the saddle shoes on your granddaughter's doll and the historical outfit on yours is way cool.

My daugher is now 16 but when she was in the doll years, I loved the American Girl dolls and all their accessories.

I'll have to go look at that site. My 2 older daughters have American girl dolls - I bought patterns thinking I would sew outfits ect... I made one jumper and I am reminded by DD#2 regularly that I haven't made one for her yet. I have a terrible time pulling myself away from quilting to sew anything else.

Oh my -- now that I'm an old granny, I'm starting to wish I also, had dolls to dress, make clothing for, etc. Glad I am not the only one.

I never played with dolls as a child - had so many real animals to fiddle with, but once as an adule, I volunteered to make doll clothing for a bazaar and got totally carried away with the fun of it! I made at least 35 outfits--Yes, the larger dolls are FUN!

Thanks for the Linkie.... Laura has drafted me to make matching pajamas for all the girls AND their dolls for Christmas. At least pjs won't be too difficult.

What fun! And the little Plumpkin just isn't any more, is she? Still adorable, though *s*

Hello,

Thank you for sharing such relevant topic with us. American Girl Dolls are the favorites of little girls, which is made in cotton. Now a days it is very popular for its good quality, it would be great if you provide more details on this cloth...
