Is your daughter obsessed with the American Girl dolls? My daughter is a little too young for them, but by judging from her love of baby dolls I'm sure she isn't far behind. Here's a trend I love--making DIY outfits for our dolls. That's why I'm sharing these free clothing patterns for American Girl dolls.

What I do know about the American Girls dolls is that the wonder is not just about the dolls, but the adorable accessories and clothing that they can be dressed up in. From era pieces to vintage duds, girls love mixing and matching their styles while enjoying creative play. It's all based in a love of books and history--I can't think of better dolls for girls to adore.

To mix up the American Girl styles, Liberty Jane Clothing, a Seattle-based company, offers a fun collection of doll clothing for American Girl dolls. They even offer free dress pattern as well as 14 other free clothing patterns that would be fantastic projects for beginners as well as fun projects for mothers and daughters to enjoy. They can only offer 1000 free downloads per day, so if you are unable to download any of the files simply try again tomorrow.
