New Dance Costumes for American Girl Dolls

Spring is dance recital season.  Here are two new costumes, one tap and one ballet, for that special occasion.   Both costumes include shoes.  Visit CSB Sews Doll Clothes on Etsy for more pictures and information

Black and white sequined retro-style tap costume (the box hat features a large sequined bow).


Next, the Sugar Plum Fairy from the Nutcracker Ballet.  Beautiful embellishment on this costume.


I will soon be starting on my Halloween Costumes so I can meet demand this year.  Follow CSB Sews Doll Clothes on Facebook or Twitter for immediate notification of what's new at CSB Sews.

See ya soon,

18th Century Formal Dress for American Girl Dolls Felicity or Elizabeth

Eighteenth Century formal dress for American Girl Dolls Felicity or Elizabeth inspired by the ideas and designs of Magalie H. Dawson (MHD Designs).  

By the 1770s the sack-back gown was second only to court dress in its formality. This style of gown had fabric at the back arranged in box pleats which fell loose from the shoulder.  In front, the gown was open, showing off a decorative stomacher and petticoat. It would have been worn with a wide square hoop or panniers under the petticoat. Scalloped ruffles often trimmed elbow-length sleeves.


There is much more information about this ensemble at CSB Sews Doll Clothes on Etsy - Formal Dress for Felicity or Elizabeth.












I did promise a Victorian Ensemble, but the one I created sold before it appeared in the Stitching Post.  But here it is along with a few other new items (mostly sold) at CSB Sews Doll Clothes on Etsy.
