Now is the time I designing and sewing for fall and Halloween. I love creating the Halloween costumes, and they are always a big hit. This year I will definitely have another unique witch (a perennial favorite), a new gypsy costume, a truly wonderful cowgirl ensemble, a surprise from the '50's and more surprises from the movies. This year I will also have historical Halloween costumes for the dolls.
I will also be creating complete new ensembles for the historical dolls. In September, two new doll books -- Meet Cecile and Meet Marie-Grace -- about New Orleans in the 1850's. It will be joy to design for these girls!!
Items Available from the 2011
For American Girl Molly:
Molly's Swing Dress with Shoes and Socks. I love this look back at the late 40's
An authentic 1940's style sundress for Molly. This was designed based on a Butterick sewing pattern from that era. Reminiscent of the famous Joan Crawford style.

Springtime for Kit, complete with shoes. The dress has embroidered ladybugs and butterflys. This is a signature look from CSBSEWS.
A 1930's style cutwork lace dress for Kit, with shoes and sock. This ensemble reflects the transition in fashion from the 20's to the 30's.
