My neice has wanted a witch costume for her American Girl for a long time but can't find one.

So I made her a pattern.  I sewed one right with her to show her how.

Mine is black and brown and on a Magic Attic Doll.

Hers is black with silver spiderwebs on her Elizabeth doll. 

She wanted 3/4 sleeves, a shorter dress and pants.

We should have interfaced the hat brims.

We even made her a little pair of boots!

This is only her second sewing project.  I think she did an awesome job!

So fun to have a seamstress in training. This is how I taught myself how to sew, making doll clothes. Fantastic!

You made that without a pattern?  I am in awe!  My daughters were just commenting the other day that they wanted Halloween costumes for their American Girl dolls.  I might have to play around and see what I can come up with.

Thanks!  Grin

I am usually in too much of a hurry to get something done to wait until I can find a pattern.  I can use a pattern, I just almost never do.  Roll Eyes

I was thinking a cat costume or something for my other neice's American Girl doll.  What else would be a cool easy Halloween costume?

They look great! They hang nicely on the doll, well done on making the pattern. And it's so nice that you and your niece are sewing together. Tell her she did a great job, I hope she keeps on sewing!
