On Friday (April 10th, 2015) we'll launch an exciting new pattern by Liese Brouwer of Doll Tag Clothing designed to fit the Disney® Animators' dolls. This fun pattern will be permanently free! Help us spread the word and then come back on Friday and get your copy.
More About Liese and Doll Tag Clothing: (in her own words) I am a mother of 3 living in South Africa. I come from a sewing family and started at a very young age. My mom and granny taught me everything I know. My favorite baby doll clothes I own were made by my granny... she added the most beautiful detail with lace and bullion roses. I fell in love with American Girl while travelling in the United States and couldn't wait to start sewing for her. I now have a little girl and the fun begins. I am also part of wonderful and creative family in the Hatched in Africa community. It is a place close to my heart. My mom, sister, 2 aunts and I are all part of this amazing world. I love to digitize for the embroidery machines!
More information about the new pattern:

We'd love to hear your opinion - do you have a Disney® Animators' doll?
I just ordered a new Disney Animator doll named Merida…I love her sassy look. I did this because I saw the patterns for her and bought them. Now I will have three cute little girls to sew for. Thanks for the patterns and the free one too!!!
Wow, this is so timely. I have about 10 of these dolls from Thrift Shops, etc. and they all need new outfits. Making patterns is not that much fun for me. These dolls will go to children at Christmas so I am starting early.
Thanks to Dorriebelle for the link for measurements and photos of these dolls. I may be able to use their patterns for the 1970’s 15" My Friend Jenny dolls if I take in the waist a little. I see the Animators have chubby tummies.
Thanks as always to Pixie Faire/Liberty Jane— and also to Liese Brouwer for gifting this pattern! What a great family story too!
Thank you for the pattern. I currently do not have these dolls- but a good pattern for g.daughters to make for stuffed animals.
My little girls have at least four of these Disney Animator dolls (Rapunzel, Cinderella, Ariel and Aurora, ..possibly one more, but I can’t remember which one). They also have two Journey Girls (which fit the AG doll patterns with only minor adjustments). I am glad to see a pattern to fit the DA dolls as I have so many AG patterns already. Thank you!
i DON’T HAVE ONE OF THESE DOLLS. COULD PROBABLYU ADJUST IT TO AG SIZE. THANKS.
I don’t have one of these cute little dolls. But I’m sure I can make it fit one of my others.
Disappointed no AG pattern…
Mary Margaret- That’s super cool! I am an Irish dancer, and it always makes me happy to hear about other people into dolls and dance. :)
Liese so glad to see you with Pixie Faire. I am familiar with your embrpoidery designs and followed Hatched in Africa for many years while Iwas digitizing. I do not have this doll and hope you will do designs for the Journey Girl doll which my granddaughter and I both have. I prefer the JG dolls as there are too many size variations for the AG dolls plus the JG has a full torso making many designs more attractive on them. Your skirt is very sweet. Glad to hear life seems happy for you.
For everyone wondering what the Disney Animator dolls’ measurements are (as well as some of the other Little Disney Princess dolls out there), here’s a link and photos -http://dollydelicacies.com/2014/08/09/the-differences-among-disneys-toddler-dolls/
Hope that helps !
Its so cute, cant wait to try it. Thank you for the freebies! :D
I don’t have any DA Dolls, but it’s nice to know this sweet pattern is available should the need for it arise in the future. Thanks, again, Cinnamon!!!
Love the skirt thank you for pattern.
Does anyone have the waist measurement for the Disney Animator dolls? I’m trying to figure out whether this would fit Hearts for Hearts.
Thank you. I’m just learning to sew. I love the animator dolls so this will my first attempt at sewing can’t wait to give it a try.
Thank you for the cute skirt pattern! I sew Irish dance outfits for the wee beginner dancers. It’s always nice to have something in my stash should one of the kids have a specific request. Thanks again! Mary Margaret
Yes i have Mulan and have another one on order from Disney. Arora should be here anyday. They are the Animator dolls. I need to order some patterns for them.
I live the “simple” patterns I have bought or received free. I have 2 rescued dolls I have bought from thrift stores that need a new wardrobe too. I use them as my sample dolls for all my doll clothes creations.
My daughter loves her Disney Animator’s dolls! Thank you!
I don’t know about anyone else, but I have a fairly substantial assortment of naked doll babies in my grand-kids playroom. I love having a variety of patterns to choose from. I can usually make something to fit one or two of them.
I can make this little skirt! I am sure it will fit one of my granddaughters dolls! Thank you
Thank you for offering patterns for a variety of dolls. I love your story of carrying on the family’s sewing tradition ! thank you for the freebee!
I don’t have one of these dolls, but I’m sure someone I know will have one and reap the benefits of my sewing this cute skirt. Way to mix things up! Thank you for another Freebie Friday.
Awesome ! I have the slightly smaller TollyTots and Playmates versions, I’m sure this’ll fit them without much in the way of alterations. It looks absolutely adorable – I can’t wait ’til Friday ! Thank you !
I love these sweet girls! I have 6 of the princesses. My most recent find; Rapunzel at Goodwill for $4.99! I also have 5 of the Small World characters. I so appreciate that there is a designer for those of us who are not gifted in pattern making. Thank you Doll Tag!!
It’s good to know there’s clothes for these type dolls too. Very cute! Thanks
Pretty doll – Great Skirt —Many thanks
I have three Animator dolls now, and I LOVE Doll Tag Clothing patterns! Have several of them. Clearly written and photographed, and the FIT is perfect. LOVE when that happens with a new pattern. It then becomes my go-to for that doll.
