I have had the MOST FUN working on a new project!  The latest Perfectly Piper outfit on Etsy has a bright and cheery birthday theme!  It is a complete, layered outfit plus a gift bag, birthday card, and gift— all doll-sized.  The gift is a silk-screened tie-dyed t-shirt!  Even the pennant banners are included!

I loved working on the details on the denim skirt!  This one features a mock coin pocket and mock fly, real working front scoop pockets and back patch pockets, faux rivets, the Perfectly Piper sueded tag, and lots of classic topstitching!

The tie-dye t-shirt was custom screen-printed!

The doll-sized card, pennants, and bag embellishments were made just for this ensemble!  The card has a printed “Happy Birthday” inside.

For info on how to silk-screen doll t-shirts, check the Yudu page on my craft blog, With Glittering Eyes.  These garments were all made using Liberty Jane patterns that I have adjusted, altered, and embellished!

We have been in love with the Liberty Jane jeans pattern.  After tweaking the front pockets a bit and playing with lots of great denim fabrics…and creating our own designer label…we have a great pair of jeans for American Girl dolls!

The label wowwed my daughter, Piper, who gasped when she saw it.

Why I like these jeans:  they pull right on the less-than-perfect American Girl doll body with their thick middles and skinny legs.  These jeans have great lines that work well with longer tops as well as tucked in Ts.

Ever feel like a gloomy day needs a little sparkle?

I fell in love with the metallic knit I used for this mock turtleneck top — so icy and cool!  I added a piped edge for a smooth finish on the skirt hem.  (The skirt and top were altered from Liberty Jane patterns).

This ensemble features a vest pattern I drafted myself… all those pattern-making classes at Baer Fabrics years ago paid off on this project.  I machine quilted the nylon outer fabric.

Do you love polka dots?  I lined the vest in a cotton polka dot print.  I sewed a little pocket on the inside and tucked a bit of doll-sized cash in there for fun.  That was Piper’s favorite part of this outfit!   She thought that would be a fun surprise for someone to find!  Even dolls need a little mad money, right?

My favorite part was creating a little necklace and a cardstock box for it…

The necklace combines glass beads, crystals, metal beads, and metal spacers on a stretch cord.  This type of construction is so easy to put on and take off of the dolls– even easy enough for excited little girls!

This outfit has been newly listed in the Perfectly Piper Studio shop on Etsy.   This bit of Perfectly Piper Doll Couture includes the skirt, top, vest, and necklace.  Click here to check it out!
