Freebie Friday, May 15th, 2015, Help Us Decide

Hi everyone,

On Friday (May 15th, 2015) we'll have one of the following patterns available for free from Cinnamon Miles or Melinda Schlimmer. 

More About Cinnamon and Liberty Jane Clothing: Cinnamon is the co-founder of Liberty Jane Clothing and Pixie Faire. She's also the author of several bestselling books on fashion and sewing. She strives to design on-trend clothing made to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl® and other doll types too.

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 

Help us decide which one of these fun patterns should be free by voting below. Then come back to Pixie Faire on Friday to see which pattern won and get the free download.

Vote Now:

Here is more information about each pattern:

Bandeau Top Designed To Fit BFC Ink. Doll®: Your BFC Ink. doll will love this fun fashion essential. The Bandeau top is a timeless summertime top - and the best part is - when you download this fun pattern you also get directions for making a dress version too! Double the fun.

The Sorrento Top Designed To Fit Ellowyne® Dolls: The perfect top for hot summer days! The Liberty Jane Sorrento Top designed to fit 16 inch Ellowyne Wilde dolls will be a great addition to your dolls wardrobe. Dress it up with a dark pair of jeans, or go more casual with a cute pair of worn in cut off shorts! The PDF pattern includes pictures and instructions showing how to make the 5 strand braid. The top opens in the back and is designed to have a velcro closure, but could have tiny button/loop closure as well.

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!

 

Take a Look At Each Pattern:

 We'd love to hear your opinion - which one of these fun patterns should be free? Leave a comment below with your opinion!

I love the “new girl” and the “check”!! Both seem to be very challenging and fun to make. since I love them both, and I want to make my vote count, I will choose only one: the new girl. Maybe next year Check. Very sincerely yours.
