We are relocating to the West Coast.  CSB Sews Doll Clothes will be closed until sometime in Spring 2017.   But then I will reopen with my costumes for American Girl Dolls.   I was busy this holiday season selling the house and preparing for this long distance move, so I apologize for being out of touch with everyone.    

I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season and wish you a happy, prosperous and safe New Year.

Nursery Rhyme and Halloween Costumes for American Girl Dolls

In 2016 I will be concentrating on creating original, one-of-a-kind costumes for your American Girl Dolls.   In this postings, I will highlight 4 of them, 2 are based on Nursery Rhymes, 2 are variations of my witch costumes for Halloween and 1 is a very colorful gypsy costume.   You can see all the designs, with more pictures and information at CSB Sews Doll Clothes on Etsy 

I was inspired to create a couple of costumes based on some of my favorite childhood nursery rhymes.:


"Mary, Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockle shells
and pretty maids all in a row"

The outfit included a bonnet, gardening apron with pockets, the dress and bloomers.   Also included are gardening tools and faux seed pockets.



The second ensemble was for Little Bo Peep.   The ensemble (which has sold) included a shepherd's staff and a her sheep.   

 "Little Bo Beep has lost her sheep
and doesn't know where to find them.
Leave them alone and they'll come home
wagging their tails behind them."


My Halloween Costumes are always popular so I've started early in order to be ready for the season.  So far I've created two witch costumes, the always popular "Candy Corn Witch" and the whimsical "Storybook Witch".




My gypsy costumes are always popular.   For the latest version I picked very bright colors.   So if you or you doll love neon pinks and yellows, this one is for you.

 

I have many other new items in my Etsy shop, so come and visit  CSB Sews Doll Clothes on Etsy.
