An American Girl doll dress!

My DD received McKenna as a Christmas present, and I decided to try my hand at sewing some new clothing for her! This is the first piece of clothing I've ever made, doll or human . I'm really happy with how it turned out and I just started another - this time I hope to make a matching dress for my DD!



Thanks for looking!

Thanks! Here is another one I made from start to finish, during nap time!



I'm on my phone right now so I don't have the link, but Google search "popover doll dress" and you can download and print the pattern - it also comes with a matching girls' pattern, which I'm going to try next!

Looks great! I'm brand new to sewing, so this would be great practice for me.
