I have decided to write my first review on a pair of shoes I recently got! The Our Generation “Red All About It” shoes are a sparkly coral-ish pink.
They have a cute ribbon bows on the front, and silver metal studs all the way around. The studs rattle a little when putting on the shoes, but it doesn’t look like they will fall out.I expected the shoes to have a gritty feel to them, because of the glitter. Actually, they are quite soft to the touch.I have heard that some Our Generation Shoes don’t fit American Girl Dolls well. However, these flats fit my AGs very nicely.I especially like these shoes because they are a unique color.
The soles are black plastic, similar in material to the soles of the purple shoes in this outfit which are from Sophia’s on Amazon.
Thanks for reading!

I decided to make cute Valentine’s Day outfits for my dolls. Rebecca got her outfit first!
The t-shirt I up-cycled using the Liberty Jane Pattern from a normal off-white t-shirt. After seeing Doll-it-up’s post about embellishing a doll t-shirt, I thought I would try out a similar method. I didn’t have freezer paper or fabric paint, but I did have acrylic paint and a heart stencil. I combined two colors of acrylic paint to make a shade of pink, and added a very small amount of water to the mixture to thin the paint. A paint medium would have been more ideal. Acrylic paint applied directly to fabric stiffens the fabric. Even with a bit of water in it the paint dried stiff, but it still worked out. I used glitter acrylic paint, mixed with water, over the pink.
I up-cycled the vest from a human vest. The great thing about up-cycling is the ability to reuse finished hems. The top edge of the collar I reused from the human vest, as well as the lining hem around the bottom edge of the vest. The outside of the vest is red, and the lining is red, black and white plaid. The back of the vest has a “V” shape top stitching, which was on the original vest as well.
I used the Liberty Jane Tank Top Pattern to make the vest. The back pattern piece I cut on a fold and made no other alterations to it. The front piece I cut on a fold, and then cut in half down the middle. I didn’t include a zipper on the vest, because I knew that I wanted to pair it with the heart shirt and the heart would then be covered.
The leggings are featured in this outfit and the shoes are pink high tops from Sophia’s.
I made this dress from the Lisianthus Dress pattern on Pixie Faire. I had seen this dress on many dolls on Etsy and blogs, and liked it. This pattern was the first thing I bought with the Pixie Faire gift card I received for Christmas! The pattern is great, and the dress turned out very well.
I didn’t do the dress exactly the way as stated in the pattern. I lengthened the back pattern pieces so the dress would have the ability to have a Velcro closure, rather than a zipper. The skirt isn’t quite as ruffly in my version, due to the fact that my fabric wasn’t 37″ wide as needed in the pattern piece. I did the sleeves slightly different. I used the same pattern pieces, but left it out and pressed the “sleeves”. Originally, this was supposed to be sewn in. This does leave me with a raw edge. Oh well. My doll will wear this for Easter!
The necklace and bracelet I made with elastic cord and beads. I had already made the necklace a few months ago, and made the bracelet to match when I made the dress. The headband is a girl’s hairtye, but it has been stretched through normal wear to go perfect around the doll’s head. She is wearing stick-on nail decals in the shape of pink cupcakes for earrings.
With that, I have an announcement to make. I am opening an Etsy shop within the next month! I am very excited to share my doll clothes and accessories with others. More details coming soon!
