Welcome to my gallery of doll clothes. This includes pictures of dresses in my personal collection as well as those that are no longer available.
Here are my three dolls wearing their fancy, expensive, American Girl Company-made dresses. I dreamed about owning these dolls and dresses for a long time before finally seeing my dream come true. Samantha, the first American Girl doll I wanted, was actually the last of the three that I bought! I have only had her a few months. Felicity is my oldest and favorite doll...I worked so hard to save up the money to buy her when I was in 6th grade!
This is one of my all time favorites of the dresses I have made. It took a long time to trim it but the end result was worth it. This is a one of a kind original.
I whipped up this dress originally for Felicity but ended up modelling it on Samantha. I made the sleeves more bell-like (the pattern had them being straight which was no fun at all.) I wouldn't mind having a dress like this for myself!
I crocheted this outfit (minus the tube top) over one weekend. I wanted to make something special for the Samantha doll I hd ordered and whose arrival I was expecting any day. So I bought some pink yarn and made this skirt using a shell stitch. The boa is made like one I made for myself...I used the same pattern and everything because it was meant for chenille yarn; when using regular yarn it ended up being just the right size. I hope to soon have some of these cute little boas available for purchase.
This beautiful dress is floor-length with short puckered sleeves, which are adorned with blue ribbon roses that match the roses on the fabric. A wide and luxurious sash of blue satin ribbon is the perfect compliment to this lovely creation. The sash is just the right length, allowing you to tie it into a large bow with enough left over to dance gracefully in the gentle breeze. I consider this to be one of the prettiest dresses I have ever created.
"Golden Elegance Gown"
This elegant dress is made of cotton fabric printed with navy blue roses. The sleeves and bodice are adorned with gold rose-shaped buttons. Navy ribbon encircles the short, puckered sleeves and skirt and accentuates the bodice. This one of a kind dress was ordered by Mary.
Besides sewing for American Girl, I love sewing for Barbie. These are Regency dresses I sewed by hand for my Barbie and Generation Girl Chelsea doll to create Elinor and Marianne Dashwood from Sense and Sensibility. The Regency is my favorite period and Jane Austen is my favorite author. I am working on some more clothes so that I can create larger scenes from Jane Austen's books. I wish this picture had turned out a bit better.
Here is a dress I made especially for my first customer.
I made two of these dresses and sold both on Ebay. They were very cute and had a button and loop closure in the back.
This dress I originally intended to sell but as soon as I saw how pretty it was going to be I decided to keep it. This is probably my alltime favorite of the dresses I've made for my dolls.
Of all the dresses I have created, this is one of my favorites. Beautiful green-on-green ivy print fabric is so perfect by itself that no decoration is added except for a gold button at the wrist of each leg-of-mutton sleeve. I had two of these dresses and sold both of them quickly.
I did not make this outfit but I thought it would look prettier on my My Scene Barbie than on the Generation Girl Barbie it came with...and I was right!
"Midsummer Bouquet" Gown
This one-of-a-kind gown which was sold on Ebay is trimmed with contrasting burgandy ribbon at the sleeves and skirt hem. Ribbon flowers adorn the bodice and leg-of-mutton sleeves.
