American Girl Doll Dressmaking workshop!
Last Saturday we had an amazing afternoon workshop — making dresses for our American Girl Dolls! The students brought in their dolls and together we all made some adorable springtime dresses, each with unique fabrics and a beautiful ribbon belt.
The students had a great time with this quick workshop, and it was so fun to get to know everyone’s dolls! We finished the afternoon with some quality decorating — bows and jewels and everything else you can think of!
It was fun making a project for a doll because there was no fitting or tailoring required and everyone’s doll fit perfectly into the dresses we made. We’ll definitely be doing another workshop like this soon — look out for the next dates and we hope to see you there!!
