And lemme tell ya...a single American Girl doll dress takes a loooooooooooooooooooong time when made with a teeny weeny, itsby bitsy steel crochet hook.
But it sure is pretty with its tiny little stitches, isnt it?
I read a review on Ravelry that it was tight even with a bigger hook, so I upsized to a 2.00 (as opposed to the recommended 1.75) and its a bit loose on the doll. But I was able to skip 3 rounds of the skirt, since my "boss" told me it was long enough.
The back is a little crooked, as it took me a little while to get used to the interesting method for the sleeves, which involved crocheting the right angles into the row. Once I caught on, I liked it. Better than making the sleeves separately and sewing them on later.
Once my hands uncramp, I may attempt the hat, but for the panties, I will stick with my sewing machine.
