The splendor that is autumn is soon upon us; a change of seasons is inevitable. Now is a great time to sew with fabrics the shades of nature's timeless colors of fall – assortments of reds, golds, oranges, browns, and tans - all nearly invite us to our sewing workspaces.

It reminds me to start on Christmas projects, so my first item was to make a Christmas dress for one of my granddaughter's 18 inch American Girl dolls. It has an emerald green satin gathered skirt with red satin ribbon trim near the hem. The top is a separate dark green velour vest that I embroidered with flowers. I took my inspiration from the Disney movie Frozen. Here is a photo and my pattern:

I love the green Christmas outfit you made! As a little girl, The American Girl doll was always my dream doll, but decidely out of reach for me. I love to sew doll clothes and soft body dolls (mostly long ear bunnies and huggable bears) and make period costumes for them. Years ago I was enchanted with the novel Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak and so made my soft doll bunny version of the character Lara. Then I felt she needed a companion and made a Victorian bunny. Sigh - this is the kind of sewing I love to do now. You can see the bunnies as the first photo in my photo album at my Facebook Fan page (still a work in progress.) I named the page: Sewing - Textile Arts.
