On Friday (March 25th) we are celebrating Heidi Mittiga's 2nd anniversary with Pixie Faire by offering her new Turn Of The Century Skirt designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®. It will be a free one-day-only special event.
More About Heidi Mittiga and Flossie Potter Designs, (in her own words): As with so many other women, my journey into sewing began with my grandmother. There was never a formal lesson; it was more like watching a musician at her craft and learning through observation. When my daughters got their American Girl dolls, I copied the outfits from the magazine. Later on I began to create my own styles and was amazed when other moms paid me to make clothes for their daughters' dolls! Now I'm a grandma, myself, and I'm interested in designing modern and historical fashions that are fun and fairly easy to sew for people of varying sewing abilities. And to honor my grandma, I put her photo on every cover.
More About The Pattern
The Turn Of The Century Skirt: This skirt is designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl® and is the sister pattern to the Turn of the Century Shirtwaists pattern. Floor length with elegant lines, the skirt has 5 sets of accordion pleats that form inverted "V" shapes, adding flowing fullness to the hemline. It was designed to fit American Girl (R), but with a small adjustment at the center back, it will also fit Journey Girl(R). The interesting design element is that the skirt is made in one piece, and only basic sewing skills are needed. If you can trace and press straight lines, you can make this skirt! The PDF sewing pattern contains 10 pages of step-by-step instructions with full-color photo illustrations, 6 pattern pieces, and 3 pages of printable summary instructions (to save on printer ink). Create a complete ensemble for strolling through the park with these other Flossie Potter patterns: Turn of the Century Shirtwaists pattern and the Simply Lace Parasol pattern.
