Here is the dress for an American Girl doll that I just finished sewing for the youngest granddaughter. She picked out the dress pattern and the blue fabric, and I did the rest. I have to admit, it was fun to lay out the pattern pieces, mark and cut them, then follow the sewing directions. I haven't used my machine for anything except repairs for a mighty long time.
Now she's showing the tulle slip that makes the long skirt stand out. Would Martha Washington have worn this for a morning dress? :-)
