Some Doll Sewing!

When summer vacation comes in just a few short weeks (!!!), our family will be doing what most families do - summer camps, swim lessons, and traveling.  My girls love to bring their American Girl Dolls with them wherever we go, and I like to let them take a few outfits to change their dolls into along the way.

I just sewed up a few of these adorable Bow Dresses - this is one of my favorite doll patterns and it's from Ruby Jean's Closet (the girl version is a great sew as well!  You can see a few in my shop here).  I love this pattern - the bow is just too cute, and I love that it's interchangeable - you can change the whole look just by adding a new bow!

I love these fabrics, from Micheal Miller's Bella Butterfly line.  So sweet and summery.

I'm giving these two dresses away as part of another HUGE American Girl Doll Wardrobe Giveaway that starts in a few weeks, so stay tuned for details.  There are some seriously adorable items donated by some very talented sewists!


  1. Cute! I love sewing for my girls' dolls, too. Love the bows on these dresses!

  2. Lovely dresses! I love those fabrics and the bows make the dress for sure!

  3. oh my heck! My daughter would go crazy for this! I'd love for you to link up to my Feature Friday Linky Party! This post would be a hit!

  4. Love it these so much! What a fun mommy you are:) Thanks for linking up to the Feature Friday Linky Party!

  5. So sweet. Maybe when The Peanut will no longer let me sew for her I'll start sewing for dolls instead of quilting. Thanks for linking up to Inspire Us Thursday!
