Two New Costumes for the Holidays

Want to find that special gift for your American Girl Doll for the Holidays?   Here are two special creations from CSBSEWS that might be exactly what you are looking for.   Visit CSBSEWS on Etsy for more pictures and information.

Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball Gown & Mask

Many historians believe that the first American Mardi Gras took place on March 3, 1699, when the French explorers Iberville and Bienville landed in what is now Louisiana just south of the holiday's future epicenter, New Orleans. They held a small celebration and dubbed the spot Point du Mardi Gras.  On Mardi Gras in 1827, a group of students donned colorful costumes and danced through the streets of New Orleans, emulating the revelry they'd observed while visiting Paris. Ten years later, the first recorded New Orleans Mardi Gras parade took place, a tradition that continues to this day.  Your doll can participate in the festivities and masquerade balls dressed in the official Mardi Gras colors of purple, gold and green.  A perfect gift for the new girls from Louisiana, Maria-Grace and Cecile.

Magic Fairies - Chrissie the Wish Fairy

This is the second Rainbow Fairy costume designed by CSBSEWS.   Just in time for the Holidays! Dress your doll as the Magic Fairy Chrissie - the Wish Fairy. Each year Chrissie the Wish Fairy hides her magical objects in the human world - objects that make sure every one's Christmas wishes come true.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and are looking forward to a happy holiday season!!

Steampunk - Part 2

My first Steampunk outfit was a success and I had many requests to do another one.   So I created a new and different Steampunk ensemble for American Girl.   This will be my last Steampunk outfit for a long time, as most of you know, I like to create new and different designs each time I sew for American Girl.

You can get more information on this item at CSBSEWS Doll Clothes.  (This item has been sold).
