American Girl Store, Dallas Tx

American Girl Store, Dallas Tx

Recently, (not that recently actually) I went to Dallas on a fabric shopping trip. We stopped by the American Girl Store at the Galleria. Um, because we couldn’t not.

I took these photos for my friend Margaret, who owns Gigi’s Doll Creations. I totally forgot to email them though.) I thought maybe you’d like to see them too?

(Margaret’s doll clothing has been featured twice in the Liberty Jane newsletter recently! She has a few 4th of July outfits left in the shop now, btw…)

The store has each huge displays for each historical doll, with the outfits and all the accessories.

They also have open displays that the kids are allowed to touch and play with.

My nephew Evan pushed the bitty twin stroller around the store at the speed of light, knocking over old women and injuring small children.

And yeah, messy hair is kinda cute, but Bella is sporting a rat’s nest that is downright shameful. Seriously, she looks homeless. Judge if you must.

Here comes Evan again…check out all the cool books!

These are 3 of my favorite doll patterns. You can click the links to see what I’ve made with them…

Hello. I'm Amy and I'm addicted to sewing. I borderline-hoard fabric, buttons, & patterns. Sometimes I wish I could pile my fabric up on the floor and just roll in it!

    I LOVED seeing the displays! My daughter has Felicity and Samantha (discontinued :-( ) boo! They were mine when I was a child. I’ve been wanting to sew some more outfits for them, and this is totally inspiring. Is that a 1960’s VW beetle for a doll!?! Crazy!

    Oh man, do I wish we lived near one of these stores. I’ve still got my first run Kirsten doll and have bought a few of the mini dolls for my kids, but I would go WILD seeing all these in one place. Especially love the big displays for the historical dolls – the catalogs always focus on the other ones and the historical ones are my faves hands down. And my kids frequently look like hobos whenever we’re out, so you’re not alone there.

    We went to the Seattle AG Store last fall, and holy moly! It is an awesome place! I think the moms loved it even more than the girls actually…I still hold a grudge that my sister had an American Girl Doll (Felicity) and I never did (I wanted Josefina so bad!). Now my daughter has a hand me down Felicity and I think I might actually get myself the new Caroline. Cause you know, I need my own doll so we can play together! That’s totally why!

    Great pictures Amy! My daughter has an American Girl Doll, My sister got it when she was like – 2. Needless to say – her hair looks as if she put a fork in a light socket (AKA, not taken care of). Poor doll.

    The store looks awesomely – expensive. It’s a doll for peats sake.

    Ooops, sorry to be the kill joy.

    I suppose everybody’s gotta eat – caviar!

    Well, The AG doll stuff is very cute and fancy. I love that you shared the patterns though! Really fun making the stuff. I would rather have it made then to buy it for like umteen dollars, you know. You would put your all into it, I know.

    Can you show what you have made (or have you made anything yet)?

    I’m just working on the same ole’ borning stuff. Day in and day out – it never changes. Although, I just made my own pattern, which looks like it turned out well – we will see. Only time will tell.

    Thanks for sharing your trip! It does look to be a lot of fun! that’s what’s important.

    I sat and looked at this post as my daughter sat next to me. We are just now entering the world of American Girl Dolls. We both enjoyed looking at your pictures.

    I must say, your writing style cracks me up. I love your commentary about your nephew and the stroller and Bella’s ‘rat’s nest shameful’ hair style. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I look forward to reading more of your posts.

    Fun photos!! We would love to go to an AG doll store one day. The closest one is about 12 or so hours away. I made a pajama and sleeping bag set for my neice’s birthday a few years ago but haven’t sewn anything for my girls. Making those little clothes is fast and fun!! You have made some cute stuff!! Hope you are having a great week!!
