British schools outperform the French on both new criteria. Warwick Business School, the top UK school for career progress, is second overall for the criterion, 30 places above the first French school, HEC Paris. Alumni from UK schools also see a higher increase between their first salary after graduation and now, at 62 per cent versus 45 per cent. However, UK school alumni still have a lower salary on average than their counterparts who studied in France, at $55,000 versus $64,000.
There are a lot of free American Girl patterns out there if you know how to sew. If you are a hesitant seamstress, you don’t need to be. A lot of these patterns are very simple and can be completed by beginners. The most difficult part is the smaller scale, so maybe start with a bigger piece with simple seams, like this simple circle skirt.
How to Make American Girl Doll Clothes – Supplies
Fabric: fat quarters are quite common in doll patterns, so if you see them on sale, stock up. Cricut often has sales on their designer fabric (it’s actually made by Riley Blake) and it ends up being so inexpensive.
They recently released pre-cut bundles, so in addition to fat quarters, you can also find 5″ and 10″ square packs. Some of my favorites include Ballerina Bows and Bake Sale. Another great place to find fabric is Etsy.
Hook and eye tape (aka velcro): this is often used to close the back of American girl doll shirts or dresses, and makes it easy to get the dress on and off. You will definitely want some of this on hand if you plan to sew your own clothes. You can find it on Amazon, or at any craft store (even some dollar stores).
Ballpoint needle: if you are using a sewing machine, you will want a ballpoint needle when sewing jersey. It will make your job much easier, and they aren’t very expensive at all (the pack above is under $5).
Sewing tools: If you haven’t done a ton of sewing, you may need to pick up some of the basic sewing tools. I have linked to the ones I use below (you can grab them all in Cricut bundles for a really great deal – you can view more info about Cricut’s new sewing tools here.)
- a rotary cutter
- fabric scissors
- self healing mat
- acrylic ruler (makes cutting with the rotary cutter really easy)
- sewing pins, measuring tape, thread snips, etc. (available in one kit here.)
