After a long, frustrating, and fruitless search for the previous (now retired?) Our Generation Sewing and Dressmaking Set, I was thrilled to find the NEW Our Generation “It Seams Perfect” sewing set shortly after it’s summer 2015 release.
It’s absolutely ADORABLE and at $29.99, it’s packed with display potential and play value. It comes with a ton of sweet, doll-sized sewing accessories, including an actual pattern and fabric to make your doll a dress!
There’s so much to say about this set and and it’s little bits and bobs, that I did a video review. It’s a little long (sorry!) but I had a lot to show you! 😉
The box was larger then I expected, so if you’re looking for this set at your local Target, be sure to check behind the bigger boxes if you don’t see it right away. I found my set hiding behind the ubiquitous OG Salon Set that has been continuously in stock for many months.
Sadly, summer is just about to come to an end, and my kids are all back to school in two short weeks. I also just celebrated my forty-first trip around the sun and, thanks to a gift card from my family, I am expecting my birthday American Girl order to arrive shortly. Look for more reviews and some fun fall dolly projects in the coming weeks!

I had to have it. Because, you guys.. the mixer. American Girl has apparently found open access to my bank account via my obsession with dolly-size replicas of all the stuff I love, in all the colors I love. In... Continue reading →
