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.

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

You can find the pattern here:

https://www.etsy.com/shop/PastCrafts/items

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

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.

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

Fantastic! Such talent...I am impressed!

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

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...
