More About TrulyMe™ #60: From the American Girl® website, She has light skin tone, layered black–brown hair, and blue eyes. She arrives wearing a lilac dress with a sparkly waistband and sequined mesh accents, cotton underwear, and turquoise shoes.

More about the Custom Thimbles & Acorns Dress: This beautiful dress is hand-made by Shari Fuller from the Maria Antoinette Zone Front Gown pattern. This historical dress is made with high quality cotton fabrics that are true to the time period. A delicate straw hat completes the look! Your 18" American Girl® doll will look fabulous in this new dress.

More About The Pattern: This zone-front gown is a Robe a l'Anglaise (a gown with a bodice that closes in the front without the use of a stomacher) with diagonal pieces sweeping from the top center front to just before the side seams at the waist, pening up into the skirt. This creates a separate piece across the stomach (a separate "zone”). The gown pictured on the front cover is made in one color and set off with a sheer organza trim, but the color of the center “zone” can be changed to give it a completely new look. The gown bodice closes down the front with hooks and eyes, edge-to-edge, with trim along the center front. The back of the gown is made in the En 'Fourreau style, a method where the back of the skirt and the back of the bodice are one piece, and the bodice portion is pleated and sewn down to create the shaping. The sleeves are full length with a double organza ruffle along the bottom edge and placket. The trimmings consist of gathered bands of organza. The standout feature of this gown is the wide red belt with rhinestone buckle. This PDF pattern is designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl® or other Similarly Sized Dolls.

Hi all! I’m new to this, having a ball sewing doll clothes for our three AM dolls! I vote for #60, just because she has my family’s coloring. They both wear the 18th century gown so well! As an 18th century reenactor, I appreciate the historical patterns so much! Thanks for the opportunity to vote/comment!

How like real little girls, that the same dress can look so different on each of them. Thimbles and Acorns truly flatters 28, but not so much 60.

I feel that TrulyMe #28 wears the dress the best. But you did mention that she has short hair on your description. from the way she looks in her pictures, she has longish hair. which I think is better on a doll. The color of the dress goes with her perfectly.

Truly Me #28. Even though I know that #60’s coloring would be more historically accurate to go with the style of the dress, shielding herself from the sun to keep that milk-white glow, I think #28 looks better with the colors of the dress. If the dress were in blues or pinks it might look better on #60. They are both pretty dolls. #28 carries off the coloring of this ensemble better.
