Welcome to Part 3 of my video series where I’ll be showing you more ways to alter my 18 Inch American Girl Summer Dress and Cabbage Patch Summer Dress Doll Clothes Patterns to create new outfits for your doll. I hope you’ve been enjoying these videos and don’t forget, I’d love to see photos of the doll clothes you create using these alteration techniques – just email me a photo or pop it on my Face Book page.
Now, in Part 1 and 2 we looked at how to simplify the dress, create cute little summer tops, introduced lace and used pleats instead of gathers. Today I will show you how to add an additional layer of interest to the basic summer dress and then just how easy it is to alter the neckline to create totally new looks.
Okay, let’s get started!
‘Sew’ are you ready to do some alterations? Great, give it a try and let me know how you go. Send me some photos and don’t forget to join me for the final video in a couple of weeks.
Until then, Happy Sewing
