American Girl Doll Swimsuit Cover-up Tutorial and Headband Tutorial AG003

It is suppose to be summer so let’s get these girls ready for the beach beginning with beach cover-ups!

American Girl Doll Swimsuit Cover-up Tutorial

Kanani and Isabelle are showing off their new cover ups!  I used a couple different patterns for this.  I used Molly’s slip for the bottom part and the t-shirt pattern by New Green Mama for the top.  I turned it around so it opened in the front, of course.  I cut 8” of 1/8” elastic and sewed it at the dolls waist.  I cut the ties 6.5” long by about 5/8” wide, folded them in half and zig zagged before adding them to the front of the cover-up.

American Girl Doll Headband Tutorial

The headbands were pretty simple.

Cut knit fabric 1.25” wide by 10” long.  Serge.

Turn right side out.

Then thread with 12” of ½” elastic.


Join the ends of the elastic.


Move the seam into the tube of fabric so it is not seen.  Sew the ends of the fabric through the elastic.

On the next AG post, we will talk about their gorgeous sandals and their bikini’s!
