Sleeve Dress

Another American Girl outfit - recycled from a tee shirt sleeve. I followed this tutorial for making it -- minus the way they put the sleeves in.  I actually used the sleeve pattern from this dress...it fit perfectly!
The hat, purse, and scarf (above) was a set from Wal-mart for 18 in. dolls (I bought it for my daughter sometime last year).  My daughter is into hats like this now, so it's kind of neat that Felicity can match her!
A simpler look can be achieved with a simple ribbon sash.
I'm thinking a leopard print "belt" would make my daughter pretty happy -- maybe I'll have to make one of those this week.

Very nice! That pattern caught my eye on your Pinterest board, too!

You have been busy while I was at IHC. Love all the doll clothes. I get joy over the sweet things you do for your daughter. It's easy for us to get so busy doing for others that our own children get left out.
