I have sooo many designers I love. I couldn’t pick a favorite! I love to sew and see others’ creations.

I don’t have a favorite designer; I’m simple and not very trendy. But, when it’s time to choose a doll pattern, I’m confident that Liberty Jane/Pixie Faire has done all the hard background work for me, and I can easily find lots of inspiration ideas on this website. AND, after making some doll clothes that didn’t fit, I know I can depend on Liberty Jane/Pixie Faire to fit correctly, and be simple to follow.

My favorite fashion designer is the Liberty Jane patterns because of the details and look of a real-fashion designed outfit. I was on Pinterst looking for AG/18" doll shoes and noticed all of the patterns and outfits I could make. I look forward to the Friday- free pattern from Pixie Faire each week. I have a grand-daughter after 3 sons of my own, and 3 grandsons so as a Grandma I’m thoroughly enjoying making doll clothes and accessories. My go-to place now is Liberty Jane and Pixie Faire for patterns, ideas, and to purchase accessories. I’m addicted!!!!

I don’t like a particular designer. I like a lot of different things. I like piece by piece. Some designers I like more of their stuff than of others but I always seem to find something to like about a designers. I make a lot of my own things so I guess I’m one of my favorites. Usually if it feels good and looks good, that’s my favorite design. ha!

I don’t have a favorite fashion designer in people clothes- I like them all and I like variety. As far as doll clothes I really do appreciate pixie faires choices because the instructions are all laid out so you can understand them – so they are easy to follow—now purses are another thing—I really like dooney and bourke!

My favorite fashion designer is Eddie Baeur because I can just grab my size and wear. Truly ready to wear. I have sewn much of my wardrobe for years due to my ‘short stature’. However recently found EB an I am delighted. I still sew and teach clothing and shape, but I do like buying just for me

I don’t have a particular favorite (human) designer any more. When I was younger I would drool over Donna Karan and Vera Wang. I liked the simple looking lines of their clothing, I suppose I still do.
Since joining AG Playthings I’ve discovered some doll clothes designers that are quickly becoming favorites. Most of these people are designing things that look like clothes that people would actually wear. Lee and Pearl, All Dolled Up, Liberty Jane, SuzyMStudio, Melody Valerie Couture, ABC Knitting Patterns, all have patterns that I would love to be able to make for my dolls.

No particular favorite designer but being an art person I like innovative designs. Making your own creates one of a kind outfits. Doll clothes really allows you get creative. If they are a flop the kids don’t care! It also encourages kids to be creative while learning new skills.

Cinnamon Myles! The Liberty Jane designs, especially the patterns for Coats/outerwear, is what initially drew me to the Pixie Faire website. Her designs are Fresh and Modern and fabric choices for the pattern cover photos are beautiful. I would consider myself to be an “intermediate” sewer in terms of skill and Enjoy every aspect of making doll sized clothing.

I do not have a favorite designer, always wished I could have become a designer. But life is what we make of it. I have always made clothes for myself, my daughter and for her dolls. I still enjoy sewing and mixing and matching styles. Do enjoy all of the patterns I have from Pixie Faire, and love mixing the different designers styles to make unique clothes for the dolls.

My favorite fashion designer is actually a little bit different than most of those here. Since I design sweaters for dolls I look for sources of inspiration wherever I go. I frequently have to apologize for staring at people wearing gorgeous sweaters, and I’ve been known to pull out a piece of paper and pencil to sketch something that I like when I see it. I view myself as a miniaturist, and I’ve gotten a lot of my ideas from the Eddie Bauer catalog, Gap Kids, and even strolling through the aisles of Target! :-)

Honestly, I rarely bother to look at the tag. I’m too busy looking at the cables!

I would love to see your approach to this subject as well as how you incorporate design ideas gleaned from all the other designers in the design field today. My favorite fashion designer is a bit off in left field but creates some really unique designs, Christian Lacroix.
I like his approach to fantasy and theatrics in that he creates true design spectacles. Maybe not that wearable all the time, but he mixes colors, ultra luxurious fabrics, reembroidered lace {all things I love to work with} like no one else in the design field. You know when your looking at one of his designs.
