What if you just happened to have already purchased the perfect Liberty Jane pattern...
... and a package of pretty little separating zippers?
What would you make? You'd make an American Girl doll hoodie, of course! At least that's how it worked out for me. And here it is:
I knew as soon as I saw those pants what they'd become! The waistband had ribbing over the worn-out elastic. It became the ribbing for the cuffs and the bottom of the hoodie. There was exactly enough!
Here's my little Kit, modeling it for you:
If you noticed, the pants had an applique on them. So does the hoodie!
It's for Courtney's Marie Grace. If she wants it, of course. Haha. I think Kit would like to keep it for herself. I guess I'll just have to make another one! It was actually very easy to make... much easier than you would think by looking at it. The pants fabric was quite stretchy, so that made sewing it a little more challenging, but it still wasn't bad. I guess I'll have to hunt up some more fabric and ribbing. Anybody have any worn out pants? ;)
