Two new American Girl Doll outfits Completed today......

I wanted to try smocking around the dropped waist of Josefina's Festival outfit and then the blouse needed some to match.  The shawl was the result of one night in front of the TV and the petticoat was required to fluff out the skirt.  I think Josefina looks very festive in her outfit, even though it is not exactly traditional Mexican gear.



The second outfit is a red tartan school dress and pantaloons for a doll like Samantha (circa 1904) or her friend Nellie.  Or it might even do for MaryEllen from the 1950s if the hem was shortened.......
I think MaryEllen would prefer bloomers rather than the pantaloons though.
