I would love to see some of the smocked dresses like the little Princess is wearing in England. I love the dresses from the early 1900’s and also the French handsewn dresses that look so delicate, but can be learned with only a few techniques. The art of smocking and embroidery need to be taught and encouraged, so they are not forgotten.
My favorite era of fashion is the 1950s. I’d love to see some vintage apron and hankies/headscarf patterns.
Since I mainly sew for my granddaughters doll I always prefer the up to date fashions
My favorite era of clothing in the 1800’s. I would love to have patterns to make the dresses the southern belles wore in “Gone With the Wind”.
Love this site love all these patterns so easy to follow from start of the patterns to the finished garments Excellent
My favorite era of clothing is the 60’s. I would love to see some bell bottoms and a long top with beads.
“My favorite era of clothing and fashion is…1940’s and I’d love to see a pattern for ladies suit for an 18 inch doll"
Each era has its own unique appeal. I don’t think that I have a favorite.
My favourite era is the depression years when sewers has to be creative to keep the family clothed and those adorable feedback prints that were released to help domestic sewers. The fashions were wonderfully designed with flair to accomodate smaller yardage cuts. The fashion and accessories of the late 20s to late 30s are my most favourites.
My favorite era of clothing is the Victorian era, and its interpretation in steampunk. I would love to see some steampunk inspired patterns, flying helmet, goggles, boots, etc.
My grandson now has a boy doll so that he can play with his sister. I bought a Samantha doll and had my hairdresser give her a boy’s haircut so that he can now play with “Sam” when his sister plays with one of her dolls.
As a second request, I’d like to see boys’ clothes in the current era. Shirts, jackets, jeans, sports uniforms, etc.
My favorite era of clothing is from the 60’s(my high school and college days). I love anything “boho”. Of course that’s not what we called it then. I loved to see my own clothes and I thought I was quite stylish. I also remember a classic A-line will dress and matching coat. It was orange!, from I Magnins. I would love to have that pattern, an A-line dress and matching coat.
I love the 50’s! Full sweeping skirts and portrait necklines seem so feminine to me.
My favorite era of clothing and fashion is the 90’s. I’d love to see a pattern for baggy jeans and a flannel shirt with a t-shirt underneath. It would go great with black boots or another grunge 90’s look.
My favorite era of clothing is today (2010’s), and I would like to see patterns for steampunk fashions.
My favorite era of clothing and fashion is early Elizabethan. I’d love to see a pattern for a lady’s gown from the 1560s-1570s: with a small closed ruff, options for both the Spanish and French gown styles.
my favorite era is all of them so they can play dress up in all era’s. I would like to see skirts.

My favorite era of clothing and fashion is 18th Century Rococo. I’d love to see a pattern for a Marie Antoinette playing a shepardess dress.
Favorite time period of clothing is medieval because we love princess and knights. I would love to see knight costume that looks like armor.
I love all eras but probably my favorite is the Victorian with long fancy dresses. I’d like to see a pattern for the slips and pantaloons they used to wear and more fancy Victorian dresses.
My favorite clothing period is Victorian.
I love the 70s. I would like to see a pattern for a backpack that zips like the backpacks kids carry now.
My granddaughter has recently requested and drawn a multi-fringed dress. So – at this point I’d say my favorite era is the 1920’s. I’d like to see a pattern for a fringed flapper dress.
My favorite era of clothing and fashion is the Edwardian era. I’d love to see a pattern for a garden party dress with all the underpinnings – the high-collared lacy dress, often in white, with the layers of lacy petticoats. I’ve seen dresses that focus on satin, but not much of a focus on lace.
My fave period clothing is early 1900 and the white under pinings ,French sewing and pleats ,with insertion laces ,100percent Bateast cotton .
My favourite clothing era is the Victorian Era. The first American Girl doll I purchased was Samantha for my granddaughter Samantha. I then proceeded to make a whole wardrobe of drop waist dresses, coats and nightwear etc. She has outgrown her dolls now she’s a teenager but Samantha has kept and looked after the wardrobe I made her doll and her doll may well be kept for her own little girl someday.
