Summertime - Then and Now

Below are two summer outfits for American Girl Dolls, and they couldn't be more different.   The ensembles reflect the changes in dress for young girls over the last century.   A young, southern girl in Maria Grace or Cecile's time would wear a lovely summer antebellum style dress and matching bonnet, with undergarments consisting of a corset, slip and bloomers.   She would dress in this style for visiting neighbors, perhaps sharing a cold ice tea or lemonade on the veranda.   She would fan herself and stay as comfortable as she could, while dressing and behaving appropriately for the times.

Today, the definition of appropriate dress and behavior has changed considerably.  You will find today's American Girl working in the garden and enjoying all types of outdoor fun, dressed for utility and comfort.

Both these summer outfits are available at CSBSEWS Doll Clothes on Etsy.

I've just completed my shopping list for Halloween Costumes, so soon I will be listing all new costumes for Halloween 2013.

1970's Style for American Girl Doll Julie

Styles in the 1970's were very distinctive.   Pants had flared legs, and vests were a common accessory.  Leotards became very popular and remained popular though out the decade.   Hats were very popular, especially floppy hats.  And flowers were a very popular motif for all the clothes in this era.

I am please to offer the following 1970's style ensemble for American Girl Doll Julie.  (Patterns courtesy of MDH Designs).   Additional pictures and information at

New Antebellum Fashion plus Outfits for Valentine's Day

After the holidays I spent the last weeks completing a new 1850's antebellum fashion for American Girls Cecile or Maria-Grace.   The ensemble consists of a two-piece dress, bonnet, blouse, underskirt and pantaloons.   The dress is made from a very colorful paisley print and contrasting lighter print, trimmed with "gold buttons".  A stunning outfit for your doll.  Please visit CSBSews Doll Clothesfor more pictures and information.

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and I have two outfits in the store that would make perfect Valentine's Day gifts.  

The first outfit features a dress with a very full skirt, made from a heart print, white socks, and red slippers embellished with red bows. 

The second ensemble is a very soft flannel pajama and robe set.   The robe is made from a flannel and heart print, which coordinates with the green summer pajamas and slippers.

Visit CSBSEWS Doll Clothes for these outfits and more.   And don't forget to follow CSBSEWS Doll Clothes on Facebook or Twitter for immediate notification of new item listings.

And its worth remembering as the cold weather comes:  No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.
