Paige's Back-to-School Outfit

I'm working on some back-to-school items for the dolls, and this is the outfit that I made for Paige.

I was inspired by several ruffled t-shirts I've seen on Pinterest, but I knew that I didn't need a pattern to tell me to ruffle a few strips of knit fabric and sew them onto the bodice. I just added the ruffles before sewing the pieces together, and it was really easy.

I made the skirt from a free pattern for a Half-Circle Doll Skirt by Seams Inspired. I used fold-over elastic for the waist, and it worked beautifully. This skirt might have taken me fifteen minutes to make.

See the cute rosebud tights? More on those next time. :)

Your blog is stunning! I'm so inspired by all your American Girl items. Wow! Truly masterpieces. Thanks for linking to my Half-Circle Skirt. The foldover elastic is brilliant. I will try this myself when I stitch up my next AG skirt. Happy Sewing! :)
