Does Your Doll Need a New Dress?

I've created a trio of cotton dresses for your American Girl Doll.   Update her wardrobe with these are fun, versatile, easy going dresses,


This ensemble was created with Kit, Ruthie and the 1930's in mind:


This jumper, lace trimmed blouse and headband were designed with the 1940's and Molly in mind.


And finally, an 1800's Civil War Dress that would be perfect for Addy, Marie Grace or Cecile.


As always you can visit CSB Sews Doll Clothes on Etsy for more pictures and information.

See you soon with a new Victorian Era Dress and Hat for your doll.

New for 2015 from CSB Sews Doll Clothes

I am so happy to present these three ensembles for your doll for the New Year!!   As always get more pictures and information at CSB Sews Doll Clothes on Etsy

First, just in time for Mardi Gras is a complete Jester Costume (with hat and shoes).   Celebrate!!!  Jesters have been popular figures for centuries, but have you ever wondered where they originated? Also called a joker or fool, jesters were hired to tell jokes and provide entertainment to royalty. Their distinctive hats were floppy with jingle bells on each of three points. These points were to represent a donkey’s tail and ears, which were worn by the earliest jesters.  Jesters provide entertainment for the King and Queen of Carnival during Mardi Gras.



Next I have created a costume inspired by Stravinsky's Firebird ballet.  The costume includes tights and "hard toe" ballet shoes.  The  Firebird ballet is a story full of magic and love. It tells the story of Prince Ivan's journey to win the heart of his princess but first, he has to get past the evil magician, Kostche├». He captures the Firebird and in order to secure her release, the Firebird gives the Prince a feather so he can summon her when he needs help. All is well in the end, with the Firebird's assistance, the Prince frees his Princess and they marry and live happily ever after.  


Last, but not least, I am offering a First Communion dress with veil and necklace.   First Communion is the first reception of the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist, and in the Roman Catholic churches occurs typically at age seven or eight. (SOLD)


Thanks for looking.
