Because we had such a great time last year at Emily’s American Girl Doll Store birthday party, we decided to do it all over again this year. For last year’s party, I dressed 3 of the dolls as 80’s pop stars. This year Emily requested characters from one of her favorite movies, Clueless, directed by Amy Heckerling — a 1995 coming-of-age comedy staring Alicia Silverstone, Paul Rudd, and Brittany Murphy, which is loosely based on the novel, Emma, by Jane Austen. Mona May was the designer of the amazing costumes.
Once again, I had such fun finding the materials and making these outfits. Here are the dolls hanging out in a mall bar before our visit to the AG Store. Mary-Ellen is dressed as Amber, Julie is Cher, Addy is Dionne, and Molly is Tai.
If you’ve not seen the movie (and you definitely should), here are some photos of the original outfits.
