The American Girls Dress Designer is an educational game/application developed and released by Mattel Interactive for Windows in 1999. This was essentially an interactive version of the paper doll sets American Girl sold featuring their Historical Characters roster, from colonial era Felicity Merriman to WWII-era Molly McIntire. The game allows players to create and edit period clothes for the historical characters. Users can choose between different patterns, styles, designs and trim for each character, and they can also build and print out a fashion portfolio.
Script files going by the filename intf.sjr can be found in the game's Bundles folder, both on the CD and on the installation folder. A snippet from one of them can be found below:

A seemingly undocumented parameter called fsenabled (fullscreen enabled) can be found in Dress Designer.ini. By default this is set to 1, but editing it to 0 allows the game to be played in a window.
