Welcome to Part 4 of my video series where I’ve been showing you how to alter my 18 Inch American Girl Summer Dress and Cabbage Patch Summer Dress Doll Clothes Patterns to create over a dozen different outfits.
In my previous videos we looked at how to do basic alterations to my Summer Dress Pattern to create cute tops, skirts, played with various trims, replaced gathers with pleats and altered necklines. Today I’m going to show you how easy it is to transform a simple pattern into a striking pattern with color blocking.
Sew let’s get started.
I hope these videos have encouraged and inspired you to get creative and give pattern alteration a go, it really is easy!
P.S. I’d love to learn about what alterations you have made to my patterns so please send me your photos and I’ll share them in a future ‘Share and Tell’
