Supplies Needed:
-3/8 yd (m) of fabric (if you are making a contrasting bodice you'll need two 12-inch squares of fabric for the bodice)
-hook and loop tape
-11 rosettes
-For the Afternoon Tote, you'll need two 8-inch square pieces of fabric for the outside of the bag and two 8-inch square pieces of fabric for the lining.  Pre-quilted fabric is an especially fun choice!

Picnic dress

I like the pattern, made only one so far. The top has a very nice fit however I made a bubble skirt with it. Love it

Picnic dress by The Doll Loft

I love how this dress has turned out. The instructions and video were very easy to follow. I adapted it slightly and added bias binding to the neckline and sleeve edges. I made the binding out of the same fabric that I used for the skirt. Then ironed a small purchased motif on to the bodice and added a grosgrain ribbon and bow to the waistline. I teamed it with the Miche Designs slouch ankle boots.

Picnic dress and afternoon tote

This is a darling dress! I made the top and a bottom ruffle of white eyelet with a pale blue and white stripe for the skirt. The sleeves are finished with white piping, the neckline with white piping and a bias strip of the stripe. It turned out so cute - one of my favorites of all the dresses I have made for American Girl dolls! I made the tote of light blue quilted fabric lined with the stripe. I added a kerchief style head scarf of the stripe also. Really cute
