#ad DIY 18" Doll Nightgown Kit
I love that this DADM 18" Doll Nightgown Kit comes with everything you need to complete this project. My 9 year old daughter started hand sewing this winter and has been making little projects for her dolls and stuffed animals and was very excited to try a larger project. The instructions are simple and easy to follow. My daughter easily made this on her own with only some minor verbal instructions from me. It comes with a pattern that kids have to cut out and a piece of fabric. The pattern is basically a long rectangle with two rectangles on the top for the sleeves, so there is no curves to cut around, just simple straight cuts. The fabric has finished edges which helps make it have a more finished look without the child having to hem anything.
My daughter has saved the pattern and plans to look for some remnants at JoAnn's so that she can create a t-shirt for her American Girl dolls by shortening the length of the gown to shirt length. She wants to now get the leopard print kit to make a top and pants for one of her dolls.
My daughter found it easier to sew the pieces when she had it on her doll that just holding the pieces in her hands when she got to the top of the arms and shoulders so that she knew how far she should sew in so she had enough room for the head to go in and out of.
