More about Nicki Fleming- the 2007 Girl of the Year

Nicki Fleming, was the Girl of the Year™ released by American Girl® in 2007. She was born in 1997 and lives near Denver, Colorado. She has a brother, Adam, and two sisters, Rebecca and Cristine. Her biggest loves are animals and helping others. Above, she’s dressed in a snowman jumper made with the Backyard Bibs PDF pattern by Oh Sew Kat!

Nicki’s fashions from American Girl® are casual with a western flair. She loves to take walks and to go skiing! Her horse is named Jackson, and it is a lot of work to care for him, but she loves it. Her wardrobe includes a cowboy styled hat, boots, and riding chaps.

Nicki has curly, carmel colored hair, watery blue eyes, and a splash of freckles across her face. She’s a beauiful doll and her story will pull you in to her world of helping animals and training service dogs, like Sprocket™. Nicki’s jumper (below) is made of a soft batik fabric that looks almost like a denim! I used the Easy Up Jumper and the Jumping Jack Turtleneck (bundle available here!) for her outfit. See more ideas for this pattern HERE.

Nicki joined the Oh Sew Kat! modeling group in 2018. I bought her from American Girl in 2007, the year she came out. My daughter, was five at the time. She had a doll, but not an American Girl doll. Nicki was the first doll to have freckles, light blue eyes, and a tint of red hair just like my daughter. The next year, however, I took Molly to American Girl Place in New York City to select her first doll- and she chose Mia. Mia looks a lot like Nicki, so I just kept Nicki hidden. For YEARS!!! LOL. One day, I pulled her out of the closet, to maybe sell her, and just fell in love with her innocent look. She has since earned her keep as the perfect Oh Sew Kat! model. 🙂
