First Outfit

Here is the first outfit I made for the Emma doll. It is a little messy since I didn't have a pattern to go off of, and little time to complete it, but it is a start!

My daughter picked out the fabric. I made her an outfit, and had it sitting by me sewing machine to fix, and when she saw it, she wanted Emma to have a similar outfit. So I pulled out some scraps and got to work.

Here is my little one's outfit. 

I made the doll a pair of pants, a tank top, a vest, and a matching headband. If you look they also have the same purple crocs shoes on. :)

The tank has ribbon straps that velcro in the back.
If anyone is interested I will make a tutorial on how to make this. I promise I will dedicate more time on the outfit so it doesn't look as messy in some areas. :)

One outfit down, may to go!


  1. I'd love to see a pattern for this! I've tried to do these on my own, but the pants don't fit.

  2. So adorable, thank you for sharing with us. Too cute not to post. I don't think it was too messy, LOL Susie

  3. As a grandmother sewing clothing for my granddaughter's American Girl doll, the problem I am having is with sizing. You see they live in another part of the country and the new doll seems to be a bit larger than some of the patterns and the doll dress form I purchased.

    For this reason it is helpful to have patterns one can adjust to the size of the doll. I LOVE the idea of putting velcro on the straps of the top. What a great idea!! And yes, please do up a pattern, especially for the top, as I have seen nothing like this elsewhere on the net.

    And thank you for your wonderful site!
