Graduation Day is something we dream about and look forward to ... it’s a day for celebrating a significant achievement and anticipating good things to come. How better to imagine and commemorate this milestone than with your own doll-sized graduation cap and gown, plus all of the realistic accessories to highlight those achievements?
Included in this pattern download is everything you need to dress your American Girl (TM) doll for success, including complete patterns and instructions for a zip-front gown, mortar board (cap) with tassel, two stole choices, and honor cord. We even offer a free bonus tutorial to guide you through creating a miniature folder-style diploma using Duck Tape sheets!
