We broke down and got our 6 year old daughter an American Girl doll for Christmas. It's so not like me to get all faddish, but we did go all out and got her the NEW Caroline from 1812. She has pretty blond ringlets and Regency clothes, so how could I resist? Of course I wanted to sew her some clothes, so I, of course again, searched for some FREE patterns online and found a few. I also thought the fantastic Sense & Sensibility e-pattern was a deal ($6.95 and I love Jennie Chancey), but haven't made anything from it yet!
FREE pattern from My Cup Overflows and modified the neckline. Also, instead of making a bodice and a skirt for a dress like the pattern says, I just carried down the bodice lines into the skirt to make this nightgown. It was really fast. I made it on Christmas.
My mom also made the below dress from a pattern she had from when my sister was a little girl. I'm afraid we might just have too much fun sewing. We'd better save any new dresses for birthday presents!
