Now that the December holidays are over, all those new 18 inch dolls will need something to wear in the next few months!! Kelly loves her new ROSES dress made with the princess seam version of the School Dance Dress.
New dolls need new clothes- Make a School Dance Dress for your American Girl® Doll
I fell in love (see what I did there?) with the new Love Letters fabric collection by Barb Tourtillotte for Henry Glass Fabrics from the Fat Quarter Shop. I bought a fat quarter bundle, so I have lots of pretty, cotton fabrics to play with these next few weeks in fun colors like my favorite, hot pink, plus a gorgeous aqua and red. It’s perfect for your 18 inch doll’s Valentine’s Day dresses.

I love this fabric and I love how it works for a doll dress even though it’s such a big, bold print. Normally, we try to pick fabrics that have a design about the size of a US coin, the quarter, but when you have a pattern like the School Dance Dress – it can let you go big and bold even for dolls! (I would never use this print for the smaller, 14.5 dolls- I’m pretty sure it would overwhelm their small size, but it does work for larger, wider dolls.)
