My 10 year old became the proud owner of an American Girl doll in November. I cringe at the thought of paying $100 for a doll, but she diligently saved up her birthday and allowance money, and she has proved to be a very responsible mommy. I draw the line, however, at paying more for doll clothes than we pay for our own. I did a search and found some beautiful (and free!) American Girl doll dress patterns. Our Walmart has some very pretty fabric on the dollar table that should work great for these!
