American Girl Doll Pretty Yellow Dress

Yesterday I made another dress from the Lisianthus Dress pattern on Pixie Faire!  This time it’s in a floral-y yellow fabric.

DSCN2206The skirt on this one is slightly different.  Once again I didn’t have a piece of fabric 37″ long (as the pattern requires), therefore I was compelled to make the skirt less gathered.

I did the sleeve cuffs the correct way this time around.  🙂

The headband is from Hair Hardware and it is designed for 18″ dolls.  I bought the 12 pack, which was $4.10.  If you sign up for their newsletter you can get a 10% off coupon as well. The headband fits perfectly, and is flexible.  I wrapped it in the same fabric as the dress, securing it with hot glue as I went.  The inside raw edges I covered up with a strip of ribbon, also hot glued in place.

The doll didn’t have shoes to go with her dress (oops), so she wore her favorite glittery tennis shoes.
