American Girl Leavenworth Summer Theater Logo T-Shirt Outfit

front lst I used a t-shirt pattern to create this blue t-shirt, then added a white block of cloth to put on the Leavenworth Summer Theater logo to make an LST American Girl Doll T-shirt!  The t-shirt pattern link can be found in my Purple/Black Skirt Outfit Post.

The logo is just white and black for now, but once I get fabric pens or Sharpies, I’m going to color it like the logo below.lst logo

The skirt I made about 2 years ago and didn’t use a pattern for, I simply cut 26 identical triangles and sewed them all together.  I hemmed the bottom and added little golden bells, since the skirt was originally a St. Patrick’s Day skirt.  I folded over the top of the triangles and sewed on a waistband (not shown in the picture to the left).  The waist band attaches with a snap in the back.

And, of course, the blue tights.  This was the first pair of tights I attempted to make for my doll, and I was pleased with how simple it was!  All I had to do was cut off the top part of a knee high, cut it in half up the middle, leaving about 3 inches together at the top, and sewed the inside of the legs and tip of the toes.  They are a little difficult to get on, but that is probably just because the sock was kind of narrow to begin with.  Now I know that a wider, stretchier sock would be even more perfect for tights.

I’m currently working on tights and a leotard!

Leavenworth Summer Theater 2014 Season

Leavenworth is Washington state’s Bavarian village.  Leavenworth provides shopping and fun for all ages.  It is also the home of Leavenworth Summer Theater.  LST began in 1994, and was started by John and Susan Wagner and Bill Weis.

This summer Leavenworth Summer Theater will be producing three fantastic shows.  Fiddler on the Roof at the Leavenworth Fish Hatchery Park Stage, The Drowsy Chaperone at The Festhalle Theater, and their 20th annual production of The Sound of Music at the Ski Hill Amphitheater.

The signature performance of The Sound of Music at the Ski Hill Amphitheater is a wonderful outdoor experience.  Directly behind the stage is a beautiful view of the mountains in the background, creating a wonderful setting for the show.  Sitting under the stars, enjoying the story of the Von Trapp family, and hearing the crickets accompany the show creates an experience like no other.   It is an ideal way to end a fabulous day in Leavenworth.

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music is based on the true story of the Von Trapp family.  It tells the story of a young postulant, Maria, who is sent by the Reverend Mother of the Nonnberg Abbey to be a governess to Captain Von Trapp’s seven children.  She discovers the children don’t know how to sing, and accidentally falls in love with the Captain.

Word has gotten around about this excellent summer evening fun in Leavenworth, and the tickets sell quickly!  To learn more about the theater, the experience, and how to get tickets visit the Leavenworth Summer Theater website.
