Faux Button Placket Dress For AG Dolls
By Amy Mayen
I made this faux button placket dress out of an old western style shirt of Bella’s. I’ve really been stuck on doll clothes lately!
Doll clothes are serving multiple purposes right now. My kid has fun choosing fabric & designs for her “children”, and we get to spend time together doing something we both like. Not playing CandyLand. Oh, how I’m sick of CandyLand.
I love my Samantha’s sweet face!
Plus, every since my first knit sewing project ended up looking homemade and wretched, I’ve been pushing myself to master sewing with the almighty knit fabric. Doll clothes use mostly scraps, so I don’t have to waste any of my precious knit fabrics I’ve been hoarding. I’ve been sewing little doll T-shirts, and I finally worked with a double needle. I think for t-shirts I even prefer it over the serger.
I’ve got a Faux Button Placket Tutorial if you’d like to see how to add one to any dress pattern. Hope you like it!
