The Bonjour, Paris Fabric & Trim Kit is a set of SIX coordinating fat quarters of high quality cotton fabric, with matching ribbon and ribbon flower trim, available in our Etsy store. Laying out carefully, we were able to make three full outfits — that's several pieces each for Grace and her friends Ella and Maddy — out of just one of kit.

You can make these outfits out of any set of six coordinating fat quarters as well. But if you're trying to match the rest of the Grace Thomas™ collection, it's hard to beat the Bonjour, Paris Kit. We spent several days trotting around the Los Angeles fabric district with Grace's pretty clothes in a ziploc bag, making sure that the fabrics we picked were just exactly the right colors!

Here, we've made Grace our own — and yes, we're biased, but we think slightly better — version of her "meet" outfit, using the top from Pattern #1033: Bonjour, Paris Mini Wardrobe for 18" Dolls (our FREE gift to Lee & Pearl™ mailing list subscribers) and the pencil skirt from Pattern #1041: Slim Skirts for 18" Dolls. We cut an extra skirt piece out of lightweight muslin and used it as a lining, with a long pink ruffle stitched to the bottom, the better to dance and twirl through the streets around Grace's Paris bakery.

For working in the bakery, we gave Grace a fabulous double-tiered pinafore apron with graceful ruffled shoulders made from our Pattern #1022: Cookie Time Apron, Pinafore and Oven Mitt for 18" Dolls. To fit in the fat quarter, we had to piece together two separate rectangles of the black-and-white check from the kit to make a wide enough skirt to go all the way around behind Grace's back — but it was worth the extra seam!

Our flame-haired Truly Me™ doll #61 stands in for Grace's fiery friend Maddy. For Maddy, we made the pleated-front dress and chef's apron from Pattern #1033: Bonjour, Paris using the red-and-white floral print and intense Provençal red Kona® cotton, set off with accents of black and white from the Fabric & Trim Kit — and a dramatic fleur de lys iron-on stud pattern from the craft store.

We also made fledgling baker Maddy a super-easy, but super-important accessory: an Oven Mitt made from the same vivid red fabric and black ribbon trim, using Pattern #1022: Cookie Time Apron, Pinafore and Oven Mitt for 18" Dolls.

Our American Girl™ doll #58 wears an outfit made using our Bonjour, Paris Fabric & Trim Kit and Lee & Pearl patterns #1033: Bonjour, Paris Mini Wardrobe for 18” Dolls,  #1022: Cookie Time Apron, Pinafore and Oven Mitt for 18” Dolls, and #1031: Classic Wrap Dress and Peplum Top for 18” Dolls.

Last, but not even remotely least, here's our stylish Truly Me™ #58 standing in for Grace's clever friend Ella. We made Ella's easy cuffed shorts and color-blocked chef's apron using Pattern #1033: Bonjour, Paris. Like Maddy, Ella also has a color-coordinated Oven Mitt from Pattern #1022. Instead of a ribbon, Ella's is decorated with pretty red diagonal topstitching to match her shorts!

Finally, Ella wears a neat peplum wrap top made out of the azure blue Kona® cotton in the Fabric & Trim Kit, using one of our absolute favorite patterns — Lee & Pearl Pattern #1031: Classic Wrap Dress and Peplum Top for 18" Dolls.
