18” Doll Dress - Josefina

I’ve been busy cutting out and starting to sew some 18” doll dresses like Josefina’s for our Liberty Girls group.

I cut out all 11 of the doll shirts and skirts…


And then sewed one of the outfits for my daughter’s doll. Cute! The only things missing are the sash and the rebozo (shawl) and the girls will be making those themselves at one of our club meetings.

The dolls are big enough that you aren’t going crazy with things being too tiny, yet, they are small enough that you get things made pretty fast! AND, they can sure make a little girl’s face light up with delight! When I gave this doll outfit to my daughter she immediately went and put it on her doll and then got her own Josefina skirt on and a white shirt (since I haven’t made my daughter’s Josefina shirt yet) and she played all afternoon.  

Such fun!

Nice job! Seeing your post made me smile. Brings back memories of making clothes for my daughter and her American Girl doll. She's all grown up now. (sigh) Glad you can make those great memories with your daughter too.

SO CUTE! I love that pretty red fabric and Josefina looks so adorable in her outfit. I've loved hearing about what your American Girls group is doing. And I love that your daughter put her matching outfit on and played all afternoon! Too much fun! Thanks for linking up!
