Dress for Josefina
So I recently decided I needed to downsize my American Girl collection. I have 11 dolls, and no room. However, deciding which doll to get rid of was a nighmare. I finally decided on Josefina- I got her at the end of high school (I think? Maybe even in college...) and we never really 'bonded'. Even some of the newer dolls have 'stories' or 'play' to them that is more than her. So I decided she would go first, and then I'd figure out who goes next.
However, I couldn't just give her to goodwill or put her up on Ebay. I decided to send her to my Uncle. He has 6 children, including 4 girls. I think a free American Girl doll will be much appreciated in that household, and he is so amazing, fostering, and then adopting 2 of the girls. I packed Josefina and realized she only had 2 outfits. So I gathered some homemade clothes to send too, and saw that I had cut out the pieces for this cute denim dress while I lived in Ohio (6 years ago...) but never sewed it together. Since I left the hems as raw edges (with a line of stay stitching), it was quick and easy.
