Phyllis, the garments are lovely. I have several granddaughters that have Amer. Girl, am curious to know which of the dolls you are sewing for. You are going to make some little girl very happy.

Nellie & Samantha - one each for DD (they're fraternal twins).

Lovely doll clothes. Don't have a call for such, but really enjoy seeing them. How about posting a pic of the dolls in their clothes, maybe with the girls?

Phyllis, your doll clothes turned out beautifully! They look perfect for the time period of these dolls. Great review!

Wow, you didn't cut any corners, especially in your choice of fabric! I'll bet they'll pass these on to their own children.

These are georgous. I have this book and appreciate the review and notes on sas. The outfits definately passed the "Oh!" test with my 7 yr old.

Phyllis, when I opened that photo of the coat all I caould say is "WOW!". All the clothes are beautiful. Congatulations on a job well done!

Same here - my reaction was "Wow". Great job; I'm certain they will be thrilled.

Beautiful! Such details. How time intensive are doll clothes like these in comparison with real people clothes?

PhyllisC said...
Rennie - the time depends mostly on the amount of handsewing. The coat was the most work (6-7 hours), because I re-drafted the collar, made a muslin and also hand hemmed the lining and made the frogs myself. The school dress and undies were only about 2 hours. The white dress was about 3 hours.

Beautiful work! The coat is really stunning! I have made some clothes for Samantha using the patterns from the Amer. Girl Co. (they have them at the Bourne Library on Cape Cod, MA, US) that are the exact clothes in the catalogs with really clear instructions. I'll do a review someday:-)

Beautiful work! I may need to get this book (DD has Molly). Is it available from, say, Amazon? I really am kicking myself now for not ordering the patterns from AG when they offered them...but I didn't need them at the time...

Just beautiful. I presume that dress is hand-smocked? Amazing.

oOoh, jealous! I wish my DD had been into dolls and doll clothes. I will have to wait for another small client to come along. I recently bought the 18"doll dress form like you have, and have the Venus Dodge book for years. Saving all my scraps against the day when I can make doll clothes again. Your work is beautiful, especially the Victorian underwear.

Phyllis, these are beautiful, you did an incredible job. What heirlooms for your dds. They will have such fun with their dolls and their clothes. Lisa, try ebay for the AG patterns. I made a couple of items this week from the patterns and they are nice.

I have this book but haven't made anything from it yet so I was really happy to see a review from it! Thanks PhyllisC!
