This Christmas was the season to break out the Ball Point Needles and whip up some super cute American Girl Doll Dresses.

The fabric is from Joann’s. It is so soft. I have to say, I haven’t sewn with knits in a while. The knits at Joann’s have come along way from the “curly” edged ones I remember in college.

The dress is a basic, straight-forward tank dress with a Velcro closure in the back.

I ended up making two doll dresses and two girl dresses. I have two little nieces that are all about AGD right now. I cannot believe I have no pictures of the larger dresses to show you. Le’Sigh. They look just like the dresses above, but … um… bigger. Ha.

Word on the street is that the dresses fit and the girls’ really liked the matchy-matchy sets.

Hooray! … Now, if only I could have mailed them on time. :/


  1. that’s great. I bet the girls loved them.My gdaughter will get a doll like that this year. I will use your idea.

  2. I’m not good at sewing and grands (and almost grands) have at least 11 dolls between them! I love outfits I’ve made from bandanas, using the rolled edge for hems of elastic waist band skirts and pants. I can get pants, skirt, and halter top from 1 bandana! Have made sundresses and long skirts (ribbons or lace for straps) from elastic waistbands from clothing like PJ bottoms (purple satin), silk boxers, and even a bedskirt (stripes). Elastic and Velcro is especially easy for littler kids who can’t manage the tiny buttons or bows! Fleece coats don’t need a lot of hemming and a square of felt makes a great vest!
