Vote Now:

 

Here is more information about each pattern:

San Remo Dress For 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl: This cute dress designed to fit an American Girl Doll was part of the Liberty Jane Spring 2010 International Collection and is now available to download as a pdf pattern. The San Remo strapless dress is designed to fit over a tank or tee but also looks cute on it’s own! This fully lined design is easy to sew and works with a variety of woven fabrics! The example featured is a cotton chambray print  the dress would also look cute in a bright spring floral.

The Peplum Top For 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl: The Liberty Jane Peplum Top 18 inch Doll Clothes PDF Pattern. Your doll will look her best wearing tops made from this cute sewing pattern. Design features a fully lined bodice and a zipper opening in the back. It can be easily dressed up or worn with jeans for a more city-smart casual look. Featured in the 2012 Spring Line International Collection, this has become a true classic! Complete the look with the other Liberty Jane Patterns from the Penny Lane outfit: Penny Lane Jacket and The Skinny Jeans (or Jeans Bundle Pattern). 

The New Girl Dress For 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl: The Melody Valerie Couture new girl dress PDF pattern 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.

The Check Dress For 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl: She was all set to leave for the day - but I made her run through the list one last time anyway. Wallet - check. Phone - check. Library books - check. Good attitude - check. Fabulously smashing frock -check? - check! Yes, that was the works. Beaming a smile, she turned and skipped out the door, into the noise of the city. Treat your 18” doll to this girly, yet elegant, frock - perfect for running errands around town or studying at the library. The unique design lines and extreme dropped waist combine beautifully with the short skirt, and tiny pleats in the sleeve cap add a vintage touch. The “Check” PDF Pattern works best when made from lightweight cotton shirting, chambray, or lawn; the Fall 2012 collection original was made from silk dupioni. For lining, any lightweight cotton or poly lining will work nicely - or turn up the glamour and use silk!

Hi Cinnamon and team! Thank you very much for the Peplum Top. I’ve seen this sewn up and it is adorable. I sort of thought there were a lot of folks interested in that the other day LOL……..hope they enjoy it too! It really looks cute with jeans as pictured too. Thanks for letting us vote each week – it’s a lot of fun. I don’t think there’s an evening goes by when I don’t stop in and browse your site to see all the wonderful designs. I’m hoping to get some shoes made – I’ve got the stash…..so when I can I’m going to do some of those too! Thanks again!

Too bad the peplum top won, it was already offered free before. It would be nice if something not previously offered was posted. The jeans have been free before also…
Dresses are always nice…..

Love the Pixie Faire patterns, just purchased four and am anxiously waiting to get started making them….been a bit under the weather.

Shame the Peplum Top won, it’s a good pattern but it was already offered for free last year. Maybe you should only offer patterns that have never been free before, to give us more variety to choose from.

I voted for the Peplum top. I think that New Girl is too mature for a 10 year old girl. The Check or San Remo would be fine though.

Tough decision again, but I’m voting for the Peplum top I think it would go great with the maxi skirt or shorts for summer.
