You Can Make It -- A Camisole for American Girl Doll

Lesson 3 for the Budding Young Seamstress




INTRODUCTION TO LESSON 3

I was planning a gathered skirt for this lesson until I realized that we have already made two skirts for our doll, but we have not yet made her a top. Since these lessons are geared for youngsters who will want to play with their new creations, I decided that I will postpone that lesson until we have made a pattern for a camisole and sewn it. This will allow us to practice the techniques we have already covered in Lessons I and 2. I will again suggest that Lessons be taught in their numerical order.

Three new techniques we will learn in this Lesson 3 are

1. applying interfacing

2. sewing a snap fastener

3. using a sewing notch for placement


The first two patterns that we made were rather simple to make. Because this camisole pattern is more involved and will take us a little more time to prepare, I am dividing this lesson into two parts.
