My niece's birthday is next week and she is very much into American Girl dolls. I picked up this pattern sometime over the summer with her in mind. It is part of Simplicity's line of reproduced vintage 50's patterns. I'm planning on making View A with this blue print fabric for the skirt that I found in the remnant bin at Joann's. Now I need your opinions! I can't decide on what to do for the for the top and waist. Originally I was thinking a plain white top with a red waist, but now I'm not sure. The pattern uses a blue top, but I think there's enough blue in the skirt and it's really difficult to match the color. So, should I just do the white top and red waist, or should I do a red top with a white waist. These are the options I have for the red part. What do you think??
