Merry Christmas, Brooklyn!

I've been collecting American Girl dolls for a little while now, and my great-niece has a couple of them, too (at this time I have 19).  When my mother died, I ended up with her car, which she had piled a bunch of her clothes into.  I didn't want to throw all these things out, since some were brand new with tags, but I didn't want them for myself.  I've been going through them to see which ones I can use to make doll clothes, as I have lots of patterns for 18" dolls.  I found a t-shirt in the prettiest shade of green, and I used my Heritage Ruffled T-Shirt Dress pattern from Liberty Jane to make this cute little dress for Brooklyn.  I ordered her a pair of lime green high top cons to go with it.  So cute!!  I forgot to put the shoes on my Nellie while she was so politely modeling the dress for me.  But that's okay, since she loves boots!  LOL!! 

That's our lovely Daisy checking Nellie out.
