I made an under-shift and a cap to stay authentic

Oh how exquisite. Love the fabric and colors you chose. I went on line to see if I could find that pattern but no luck. I know you said you got it a museum gift shop. I love working on things for the doll as you can work on so many different skills and not have to big a commitment involved if you have an error-or as I like to call them, a learning opportunity. Again, your work is just so beautiful.

Luv it, LUV it! You need to enter this in a state fair, it is a winner.... Beautiful ensemble, beautiful stitching! I am like Kathy, and want to know how to get the pattern.




MoDo -> RE: Finished jacket for historic outfit (7/25/2016 1:19:36 PM)

Wow!




mizzlilly -> RE: Finished jacket for historic outfit (7/25/2016 1:34:00 PM)

Such a wonderful outfit! How does the jacket close?




allgood -> RE: Finished jacket for historic outfit (7/25/2016 2:21:16 PM)

That is truly gorgeous. Now I want to sew for dolls again.




KarenVA -> RE: Finished jacket for historic outfit (7/25/2016 5:50:36 PM)

Thank you!!! Lillian--I used small hooks and eyes for the jacket and snaps for the petticoat.

You can find the pattern here:

And, I also used the 1992 American Girl Doll patterns for Felicity for the shift and the cap;

kathyk -> RE: Finished jacket for historic outfit (7/25/2016 7:50:32 PM)

Thank you, I have ordered the pattern. I'm happy to say I have the old American Girl patterns so I can start this project. I need to go out and look at my stash...oops, I meant my resource center, to choose fabric for the skirt and jacket. I would love to see your sewing room. From the bit we can see in your pictures, it looks so well organized.

caaguirre -> RE: Finished jacket for historic outfit (7/25/2016 8:27:33 PM)

Fabulous! I favorited that Etsy store, what a treasure - patterns AND fabric!

Wonderful, wonderful job. Absolutely lovely.

Beautiful outfit and so skillfully made! You've done a wonderful job on
this.




kathyk -> RE: Finished jacket for historic outfit (7/26/2016 7:34:56 PM)

Just wanted to let you know I ordered the pattern and also one of the sale kits that includes a pattern and fabric last night and I've received notice that my order has been shipped already. Such quick service. Now I have to start watching the mailbox. Kathy

Just beautiful!




Grammie -> RE: Finished jacket for historic outfit (7/28/2016 7:08:11 AM)

Fantastic! Such talent...I am impressed!

Sadly, my little one still prefers her dolls naked! LOL




Fancy Stitches -> RE: Finished jacket for historic outfit (7/28/2016 10:02:52 PM)

Oh, Karen! That is just adorable!

Seabean -> RE: Finished jacket for historic outfit (7/29/2016 9:59:49 AM)

There are also some free AG patterns...some look similar to the historical outfits. You have to print them out on your printer...but they are free...
