New clothes for Ellyn

In the new year, I'm planning to expand Walnut Hill Handmade's offerings by sewing doll clothes for American Girl dolls and Blythe dolls.  To that end, I purchased an American Girl doll in December to use as a model.  I wrote about her on my doll blog, HERE.  She is beautiful and her name is Ellyn.

Over Christmas break, I started stitching some clothes for her.  I will most likely list these in my Etsy shop once I have a larger supply of clothes made up.  For both the top and the pants, I used fabric from Hobby Lobby.  The patterns I used are from Liberty Jane Clothing.  They were SUPER easy to follow and turned out great.  I only have one kind of bad photo to show her new outfit, but I'm really happy with it.  The hot pink pants are corduroy.  A girl's gotta love her some hot pink cords!!

NOTE:  I am going to go ahead and post this with the one photo I have, but gosh, I apologize for the poor lighting.  I'll have to work on getting better photos for the shop.  SORRY!!

Edited:  The morning after I prepared this post, I took a bunch more photos of Ellyn in her new clothes.  I'm going to do a separate post on that in a day or so to give some tips on product photography.  A few little changes can make a HUGE difference.  For now, I'll just post one of the "better" photos below the following photo, then I'll do a separate post about how I got better results.

UPDATE:  This outfit has been listed and is available for purchase in my Etsy shop.  See sidebar for the link to the shop.
