Freebie Friday, (March 20, 2015), Help Us Decide

Hi everyone,

On Friday (March 20th, 2015) we'll have one of the following four patterns available for free from Melinda Schlimmer the creative artist behind the Melody Valerie Couture brand and Liberty Jane Design Team member. 

More About Melinda and Melody Valerie Couture: Melinda is an accomplished craftswoman and pattern designer. She spent her childhood making anything and everything, but began to specialize in sewing and patternmaking in high school. During her university studies, she cultivated her gifts for design, presentation, and garment construction. In 2008, she founded Melody Valerie Couture, which provides limited edition, couture-quality dresses to 18″ dolls. In 2012 she joined Liberty Jane Clothing and is a vital part of our design work, courses, and educational content

Here is more information about each pattern:

School Girl For 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl: The Melody Valerie Couture School girl Dress combines practicality, style, and luxury and will keep your 18 inch doll looking fabulous, whether she’s on time or perpetually late! This PDF pattern features a fully lined dress that has a princess seamed midriff, yoke, and a dropwaist with gathered skirt. The elbow length sleeves and folded ribbon bow complete the look. An invisible zipper closes up the back smoothly. It is designed to be made from corduroy, velveteen, lightweight wool, or cotton fabrics.

School Girl For 16 Inch Dolls Such As A Girl For All Time: The Melody Valerie Couture School girl Dress combines practicality, style, and luxury and will keep your 18 inch doll looking fabulous, whether she’s on time or perpetually late! This PDF pattern features a fully lined dress that has a princess seamed midriff, yoke, and a dropwaist with gathered skirt. The elbow length sleeves and folded ribbon bow complete the look. An invisible zipper closes up the back smoothly. It is designed to be made from corduroy, velveteen, lightweight wool, or cotton fabrics.

New Girl For 16 Inch Dolls Such As A Girl For All Time: The Melody Valerie Couture new girl PDF dress pattern designed, specifically for 16 inch A Girl For All Time dolls, is our take on the quandary of the new girl. It’s demure, a little old-fashioned – but it offers fabulous design possibilities, like the flame appliques on the skirt, the three small mismatched buttons marching down the front, and the little bits of topstitching that waltz across the dress.This lined dress has darted raglan sleeves, dramatic appliques on the skirt, just the right amount of contrast on the fully lined bodice. It closes up the back with invisible zipper nad features bias facings on the sleeves.  It is designed to be made from  rayon, wool flannel, lightweight suiting material, or lightweight sateen fabrics. Standard poly or rayon blend lining; sheer or lightweight accents.

I checked with my granddaughter, and she said that she wants her AG doll to have SCHOOL GIRL. She tells me that it can be in style if I don’t use the thick fabric in the photo. I love velvet but will create it in whichever fabric she chooses. thank you, Liberty Jane.

Since I only have A.G. dolls, I will vote for one of them. I don’t really like the open neck designs because I have very old dolls with white bodies. I have to recut the necklines to make them cover up to the neck. That’s something some designers could consider. A.G. dolls don’t have particularly nice neck/upper chest areas. The break from plastic to cotton is distracting.

Sorry, just had to add my two cents. I’ve bought loads of your designs and love them all. You are so generous to off them to your followers. Thanks.

LOOOVE all MVC patterns, but so far no 16" dolls to sew for at our house. Always wanted School Girl, so voted for it, but would be THRILLED for any MVC pattern in any size — thanks so much Melinda (& Cinnamon), once again for your kind generosity!!! ;)

Only having 18 inch dolls, the field was narrowed. The School Girl 18 inch is great but my vote has to go to the New Girl dress.

My vote goes for the 18" School Girl Dress, Melinda; but I like the 18" New Girl Dress a lot too. (I only vote for American Girl-sized patterns because that is the only doll that I have to work with.) However, all of your pattern designs are lovely. The fit, intricate details, and professional finishing techniques set your patterns apart as high quality and are design features that I have come to truly appreciate from the Pixie Faire website. Thank you in advance for your generousity in contributing to Freebie Friday. Best of luck in your continued success and creative endeavors.

Thank you for supporting the exciting dolls, A Girl for All Time. Of course I voted for the New Girl pattern for 16" dolls. I know an AG pattern will win, but thanks for trying to support those of us with other sized dolls. I love the MV patterns so any one that wins will be excellent.

wow this is such a difficult decision. What a talented designer. I only have an 18" doll so had to choose one of those patterns…finally chose the new girl one because it is more summery. We are all waiting for the snow to go away and looking forward to warmer weather. Thank you so much?
