I altered an American Girl clothing pattern to fit a late Tudor style- circa 1540's-1550's. I drafted a full Boleyn-style sleeve; however, due to a difficulty with the green fabric, I included a stomacher that matched the petticoat rather than the gown. I used a French hood pattern I found online- and I printed it off at 25% and it fits 18" dolls perfectly. This is a Christmas present for my best-friend's daughter; made out of a stretchy dark-green velour and a red faux silk.
My Alice In Wonderland costume made for Halloween last year.
It's not exceedingly well made, and the fabric definitly came from Walmart, but it's hella-fun to wear and I'm proud of the paint work I did on the apron.
The pink lace along the apron and sleeves was colored with a sharpie because I was stupid and bought lace that wouldn't dye.

White sakura pattern kimono is made from combined silk and synthetic fiber. The lining is silk taken from original kimono lining. Very interesting is sleeves' lining - it's pure silk, very old and light, bright colors, hand fan pattern. Of course you can see only tiny part of it on the sleeves, but it's good to know about hidden beauty. That is also a Japanese tradition. Kimono decorated with flowers applications and glass pearl beads. Cotton tie added.
Bright purple nagajuban is pure silk. Very thin. Woven pattern and hand colored flowers. Nagajuban is decorated with rosy silk stitches and biser beads. No lining. Cotton tie added. You can wear the nagajuban as separate kimono or in the other way like outer layer.
Pre-tied obi is easy to put on. It is made from real girl's obi. Why girl's obi? It has small pattern so it fits for doll. Obi band is decorated with flower, chainlets, beads and 2 bells. They are tingling! Hand-braided obijime with obidome. Well, that's not the real obidome, but obijime's decoration anyway. And obiage - it was sewn from real pink obiage. Shibori pattern.
