American Girl Superheros

 Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Please see my policy tab for more information.


Allison loves dressing up her American Girl dolls. One of the first things I knew I wanted to make when I started to teach myself how to sew was more clothes for her dolls. Since this is October, the month for Halloween, I have been inspired to make her some Halloween costumes for her dolls. You already saw the Wonder Woman costume I made for her and her doll, but I couldn't just stop with that Superhero! She also got Bat Girl, Robin Girl and Spider Girl costumes to have a collection of crime fighting dolls.

I have also found that those little orange Halloween candy buckets make great trick or treat buckets for the American Girl dolls. I just need to whip out the polymer clay again for little treats to fill them with!

*I get a high volume of emails from readers asking if I sell these costumes. Unfortunately, I don't. However, there are many Etsy sellers who would happily replicate the costumes for you. Please feel free to send a copy of the photos to the Etsy doll dress maker retailer of your choice :)

Are you crafting anything cool for the Halloween holiday?

  2. Hmmm I smell business here :) seriously I think you should market these cutie doll costumes..they are just perfectly awesome! (I wish I could sow..sigh..)

    Hey do you know that FB is going to charge a fee to Fan page owners? That is why we are getting lesser share rank...and they are also cleaning up the fake likes from the page. So despite your 'hate' on that page (*biggrinned*) how about join the hop over at CuteCoconut? :)))

    1. Oh no Rina, I would never sell them. I get really frustrated with sewing lol. Plus it's much easier for me to make something I am inspired by, instead of at the request of someone else!

    3. Hi Barbara,
      Sorry, I don't have a pattern. I just drew out my own pattern, eyeballing it from an American Girl shirt my girls already owned. The shirts just wrap around the back and are secured with strips of Velcro.

    1. It was kind of an Aha moment when I saw them at the dollar store. It's great to find these kids of things that work for AG dolls since their stuff is quite pricey!

  10. What did you use as the top ?

    1. Hi Donna. I didn't use a pattern for any of the tops. I just kind of eyeballed the measurements and went from there. For the 3 (left to right) I used a satin type fabric. For the Wonder Woman, I used costume foil fabric. All the fabrics can be found at Joannes.

  11. Sorry, forgot to mention that for the designs (batman, spidey eyes, ect) I cut the shapes out of felt, then glued them on with fabric glue.

  12. I love this idea! I think often times girls have been left out of the super hero world. Wish they were for sale!!! & would also love a Marvel line ;) Great job!
