Simple Doll Dress For American Girls Dolls | Posh Pooch Designs


I have been working on some fun
 American Girl Doll Items
 for my Grand daughter's Birthday.
And I realized the Doll I use for sizing and 
modeling is undressed.
 I made a simple doll dress and really liked 
how it turned out. So I am sharing it with you.
Bright Colors!
Be looking for a few more doll items, 
as I have a few more items in mind.
