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.

Both dolls are beautiful, however I voted for #28 as with her hair colouring and skin tone she reminds me of the character called Laura on ‘the little house on the prairie’ whom may have worn a similar outfit as her Sunday best … ☺.

I’m in love with this dress. Looks like I’m buying another Thimbles and Acorn pattern! They both look great but different. #60 looks more like she lives in a City for some reason and #28 look like a child from the Country, to me for some reason. My vote’s a secret. ;-)

The fabric is perfect for #60 and she gets my vote. It brings out the color of her skin and hair. Fair skin was desirable for the time period of the dress. Interesting how the fabric looks different on the dolls. If you can’t be a reenactor yourself, choose one of the designs from this designer and have fun with your doll doing the reenacting instead.
