Top 2 Sundress 4 American Girl Doll

It's been a while since I've done a post about recycling/repurposing clothing and other items for use with an American Girl or 18" Doll. Here is a fun clothing upcycle.
I started out with this summery top sized 4T.
I cut down the side seams and came up with these 2 pieces.
Then I surged the seam closed on each.
I cut away some of the fabric on the front piece to create this sundress. Very unique.
I added a white ribbon to the other dress.
This was a fun & easy upcycled project. Have you done anything like this for your dolls?

Doll fans should check my current giveaways to see if I have any thing for American Girl Dolls to giveaway. Next big giveaway starts January 22.
