My daughter is a beginner sewing. She wanted so much to make her American Girl Doll Julie some clothes. We started out making a nightgown set. We purchased a pattern when they were on sale for $0.99 She loved picking out fabric and decided on a flannel cloud pattern. I taught her how to read the pattern and find the items we needed at Hobby Lobby. (my favorite store) We spent the day cutting and sewing.
After completing this project, I wouldn't recommend it as a first project. The pieces are so tiny that is was hard for her to stay on track. But in the end she is very happy with her completed project. We also had enough fabric to make her friend's doll a pillow case style pajamas set with the extra fabric.
