American Girl clothes

Both my older girls have American Girl dolls and they both still play with them frequently.  We have random doll clothes laying around the house but I have only made a few things.  Doll clothes seem fiddly and small and when I had lots of other projects on my list they just never seemed to make it to the top of the list. 

Well, fast forward (or maybe rewind at this point) I was hugely pregnant and bored.  Not knowing when I would go into labor I had my bag packed, the carseat installed, the house clean and the fridge stocked.  And I waited.  And waited.  And waited some more.  She was a week late!  So during that waiting I decided to make the most of my time and make doll clothes?  It was weird.  I can't explain why I thought making these would be a good use of my time.  But I digress...

The girls are thrilled and love the new clothes so I can't really complain.

First I started with a hoodie.  The pattern is from Liberty Jane, but I can't remember if it is a free one or one I had to buy.  I probably bought it but that was 2 years ago....


She's so stylish!
Separating zippers that small are hard to find!
Then I moved onto jeans!  I really wanted them to look like jeans so I got out the jean thread and top stitched these!  I also added pockets and a fake fly.  They ended up being a tad too tight so if I make them again I need to add a little bit extra room at the waist.



Even after this I still had almost 2 weeks to wait before baby came!   So I made baby clothes.  I was probably nesting, but at the time I was just trying to keep busy.
