Piddlin' 'round the house

I found my old Samantha (American Girl dolls) patterns and they look quite simple, so I shall probably draw up a design tonight and cut the pieces for a doll dress. Since Samantha's from the Victorian period her dresses modify perfectly for Gothic Lolita.
I like making doll dresses because you don't waste a lot of fabric if it turns out poorly but it's still valid practice for your stitching. :) They stopped making these patterns years ago so I'm going to go trolling about on eBay and see if I can dig up any for the other dolls, especially Felicity (colonial period) and Addy (Civil War). What can I say? I like the period clothing; it's a good base that can be updated or kept classic as necessary.
