How to alter a Build-A-Bear top to fit your AG doll

Now that I am retired and have more time to sew I am working on altering several "tops" that I purchased at Build-A-Bear to fit my American Girl Doll.   The Tops cost between $5.00 - $7.50.

A little information about BUILD-A-BEAR (BAB).  If your not a member of their Stuff Fur Stuff club I highly recommend that you join.   I'ts FREE!  Here's the link to see all the benefits you get as a member: 

It begins with selecting the right top to alter.

  1. Hi,
    I just saw your blog and it is funny, helpful and entertaining. I mostly collect 50s fashion dolls but I do have a small collection of modern dolls such as Teen Trends and BFC INk. My question concerns shoes: Would Journey Girls' shoes fit the BFC ink dolls? Looking at your pictures i could not be sure. The clothes are not a perfect fit but perhaps the shoes are? Let me know if you can find out. Thanks.

    1. Hi Fran,

      Sorry I can't help you. I do own a JG doll but not a BFC one. There maybe a FB or Yahoo Group for BFC dolls that you can post your question too. Happy you found my of luck in your quest for the answer.
