This is one of my favorite doll dresses to make for my daughters' American Girl dolls. It is a McCalls pattern #6005. I have made many dresses using this pattern but the one I am showing is made with a vintage bed sheet. Doesn't she look ready for a tea party or birthday party? I added my own touches with a little rick rack and a headband.
My youngest daughter's doll is modeling the dress but I made it for her friend's doll. I didn't tell the mom that it is a repurposed bed sheet. Maybe I should get little tags that say "repurposed with vintage bed sheets." Anyone know a great place to get custom tags? Probably etsy!
