I'm a terrible doll mom...until yesterday my kids where still wearing their warm fall clothes. Since this winter never wanted to end I felt justified. (Really I was just lazy!) Last week I got my latest order from Terrie at All Dolled Up and the weather has finally turned more seasonable so the kids are now ready for spring.
Some of you know that my original three girls are Abby, Bree and Connie, known as the 'ABC Club'. They wanted a way to show off their club so "Aunt Terrie' sewed them sleeveless hoodies:
Each hoodie has the girls initial embroidered in her signature color with top stitching to match. Connie loves that the hoodie has real pockets because she can tuck her toy bunny in there and still have her hands free for whatever the girls get up to.
In addition to the monogrammed initial, each jacket also has 'ABC Club' embroidered on the back, again in each girls signature color:
My Minerva loves basketball and soccer and dreams one day of playing for her High School team, the Pennsgate Bucks. Today she's going to help Jacob work on his lay-up shot (his sweat suit is from another source, not Terrie):
She even included the embroidered Bucks emblem on the back:
Minerva is my custom mini-me (Elizabeth with 41's wig) so she loves to hang out at the local Nature Center and participate in their Ranger Rick club:
Here are some images of the original antique dress:

I wanted to show Jacob in the neat 1840s clothes that Terrie made for him but he stayed out shooting hoops.
