Supply List for Holiday Doll Dress
Say “Yes” to the Doll Clothes - November 2019
Tap your creative dress designer genes and have the best-dressed doll!
This month we will be making a Party Dress for 18” dolls (American Girl sized) from Erin Hentzel's “a dress for every occasion Doll Dress Boutique” book (required for class).
November will feature Chapter 6 “Party Dress”, view B. While this dress can be made on any domestic sewing machine, opportunities utilizing enhanced sewing skills such as the use of a serger, specialized feet, decorative stitches, and trim applications will be highlighted and explored.
Plan to join me to create that special party dress for a child’s doll or dress your own for the holidays!
