I’m probably dating myself here but when I was growing up, Felicity’s best friend Elizabeth had brown hair and brown eyes. I pored over Felicity’s stories and loved her gentle, sensible best friend who was a perfect foil to Felicity’s impetuous nature. (I also had a crush on Ben Davidson. Yeah, don’t lie, you did too.) Like a lot of people I raised an eyebrow when American Girl produced a blond-haired, blue-eyed impostor and called her Elizabeth. I swore I wasn’t going to buy one, until I realized how much the doll reminds me of my younger daughter, and then I was hooked. Whether your Elizabeth is the blonde produced by American Girl, or a brunette custom, you’ll want the proper Meet dress she is shown wearing in the books.

Elizabeth’s dress is sewn from a pattern created by the talented Heritage for Liberty Jane. I’ve stitched it up in high quality Kona cotton in a delicious shade of lemon yellow. The rounded neckline and fitted, elbow-length sleeves are trimmed with crisp white ruffles that must have been a chore to keep clean in the pre-Kenmore era. The back of the dress closes with eyelets and lacing in a nod to historical accuracy. (Since this dress is made to order, however, I can also construct the dress with a Velcro back closure. If you’d like this dress for play and don’t want to be lacing and un-lacing all the time, please note that you’d like velcro in the comments section during PayPal checkout.) Elizabeth’s mob cap is the perfect finishing touch for any Colonial outfit. Adapted from the old Pleasant Company patterns, it is constructed from high quality Kona cotton in white and features a dainty ruffle all the way around.

Please note that the listing is for Elizabeth’s Yellow Meet Dress and Mob Cap only – the doll and any other accessories are not included.
