My Redhead long ago outgrew the sizes that American Girl provides on their "dress like your doll" clothing, but she wanted to have a matched outfit with Kit for their party. In the books we read about clothes made from flour sacks, and thought that might be a fun concept to run with, so we picked out the most "sacky" fabric we could find that wasn't a HUGE print(because of the small-scale needed for the doll dress). I used a FREE pattern I found on craftsy.com for a faux wrap dress. I made it even more faux-wrap, with adjustments(of course.) The doll dress was pieced together from several other patterns we had on hand. It also took several adjustments! We also found a matching compass charm for the big girl--very similar to Kit's necklace.
And a full length. It was simple but sweet. And it covered her knees. NOT an easy task on a size 1 who happens to be 5-feet-nine-inches tall!
We found this sister's dress at GW--I thought the print was fairly perfect for the time period theme!
Speaking of flour sacks, next post will be about favor bags.
