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!

Oh I can’t wait to see what it will be
I look forward to fridays. I love the check dress. It is friday and I don’t see a link to get my free pattern.
I love the “Check” dress.
Love the SanRemo dresses. Can hardly wait to start sewing!
Thank you so much for the San Remo pattern! I’ve waited on this one so long…… of course I just bought 5 others to go with it! LOL Happy sewing everyone!
Thanks for today’s San Remo pattern for the AG dolls. It is much appreciated.
Mary Margaret. :o)
It’s the Check dress for me!
I love the check! dress for American Girl. There are so many possibilities with fabrics. Second vote is for AG San Remo dress which is contemporary and edgy.
San Remo for the AG doll. … fingers crossed… : )
Thank you for the opportunity ,I enjoy sharing this with my grandaughter.
San Remo of course!
Check! please. I love it, I love it. My mother made me one when I was 12 that was almost like Check with the drop waist at the hip. yippee, please choose CHECK.
Thank you for all the freebies Friday patterns. Check dress of course.
You ladies are both so talented! I would love to try the Check pattern.
Check out that snazzy ‘Check’ dress, it gets a BIG ✅ from me for the third time…lol Thanks so much, God Bless!
I only sew for AG dolls. so I’ll vote for the Check dress. Thank you very much for the free patterns. They have gotten me started sewing for my granddaughter.
Check dress gets my vote this week! I am not a fan of strapless dresses for AG dolls. Thank you!
San Remo dress for AG. I will be inserting straps before I sew the top seam so they are enclosed. I can see modified spaghetti straps, fancy trim that goes with the dress fabric & maybe using the same trim as a belt, or even a wider strap slightly gathered at the sewn in places. Sorry—I’m an older lady & just can’t see strapless anything on dolls that are supposed to be turning 10 on their next birthdays.
Thanks always for the freebies! I can use any except the Ellowyne one as I haven’t invested (yet) in one of those—but SHE could wear a strapless wonderfully! Safe trip to you all too!
Thank you girls again for another great pattern which ever one it turns out to be. God Bless
San Remo dress for the 18 inch American Girl Doll
Check dress! It’s so cute! All the designs are great though and thank you for Freebie Friday!
I chose the San Remo for the Elloywne Wilde doll. My girls have gotten into the BJD dolls which are more to the size of the Elloywne doll so I’m interested to see if this size pattern will work for that! It’s so cute!
I chose AG San remo. I’ve been wanting the CHECK dress for some time. I only sew “modest” styles as the dollies’ moms only wear modest styles.
I can see making sleeved tops to wear under or over the san remo AG dress to change a strapless dress to “appropriately modest”.
I am glad to see that the dolls other than AG are included… and I only sew for AG dollies at this time, but it would be nice if the weekly freebie included all of the doll styles.
thank you Cinnamon and Melody and Val for your generosity in offering Freebie Friday.
I voted for the San Remo pattern. I am thankful for any of AG ones but this wks choices look so hard. I hope I will be able to sew them. I am way behind on all the projects so far. But glad you are offering these free patterns. Thank you.
Check dress please. Love it
Check dress please. Love it
I choose the “checked” dress.
I wish Heart for Heart doll clothing would be available on freebie Friday more often.
My doll will.be thrilled with the check dress Thank you!
I choose the San Remo for 18" American Girl doll. Thanks so much for Friday Freebies!
I vote for the check dress. It’s adorable.
I will vote for SanRemo for American Girl. Thanks!
Sam Reno for American Girl
I always vote for the Check dress when it comes up! I love the cute skirt and top!
I voted for check but I would be delighted with either AG dress pattern. Thank you so much for your generosity. I look forward to freebie Friday every week and can’t wait to try see what’s next?
I pick the CHECK dress. I already bought the San Remo dress and it makes up beautifully. It turned out just like the picture and had directions for great techniques to do the lining. The Check dress is unusual and will be fun to figure it out. Since most of your audience is American Girl pattern buyers, I hope you pick one that fits the 18" dolls.
I’m really hoping for the San Remo dress for the American Girl 18" doll this week. So many possibilities for this pattern. Thanks for the chance to vote.
Love the CHECK DRESS!!!
Thank You for making the week a little more fun!
God Bless you on your journey to Zambia and all the support you give to the sewing community there.
I’m so hoping we’ll finally get the San Remo dress for AG dolls this week. My fingers cross harder each time it comes up! :)
I just picked up a bfc doll at the thrift store. I’ld love more patterns for her!
My vote goes to the check dress…thank you for the lovely patterns.
i vote for the CHECK dress. love it
As always such lovely patterns! I vote for Check this week. Thank you for the lovely freebies!
Check! I like the flouncy skirt!
Having another great MVC creation would be FUN ! Any winner is a blessing , to add to my 91 PF patterns. :D Thank you again.
It is always so hard to choose. Your patterns are all so fun! I’m casting my vote this week to the San Remos Strapless Dress for American Girl dolls. . . but Check is just as cute! I hope they both get chosen at some point. No matter what the winning design is this week, we are all so blessed that you share so generously. Thank you once again. To Cinnamon, Jason and your whole entourage headed to Zambia — God’s speed, good wishes, and heartfelt prayers go your way. Stay safe and well, and have another successful trip.
I voted with a “Check” :) Love MVC patterns !! I have the perfect fabric for this one :) Thank you for you generosity LJC and MVC… Love PF and this great community of “creators” !
My vote this week is for Check! I love it’s clean, crisp look and the possibilities in playing with the colors.

I picked the San Remo For the American Girl Doll. I don’t have the check dress so any one would be fine. Thanks for all the free giveaways. Love what you are doing. Thanks again.
Ellowyne, please! I can’t wait to start sewing for her!
I pick check! Thank you for all of the wonderful freebies!
I voted for the San Remo for the American Girl doll. I do like the thought of a denim jumper. Also it’s been noted that there could be numerous veriations. Thank you for the chance to chime in with our opinions. It really is fun!
I would really like to have the San Remo dress for the American Girl doll. I would like to try putting the bling on it. I need some more information on how to do that but think it would be pretty even without the bling.
My granddaughter picked the San Remo for the American Girl Doll. I can’t wait to try it…
Love them all, would like the San demo for AG
Thank you for the give away’s, look so forward to Friday morning
SanRemo for Ellowyne, how fun! What a great pattern.
I vote for the San Remo, 18 inch American Girl.
Thank you for making my Wednesdays so much fun! I chose the San Remo but like the check as well. It’s a win-win this time.
Check dress of course. Thank you!
I really wont the check dress. Think it is so cute and so many ways to vary the fabric for great looks.
Oh please the San Remo for American Girl dolls!!!!! I have voted for it the last 3 times ( I think) and really want this one! A strapless dress option would be great! Please, please the San Remo for AG Dolls. Thanks for making Wednesday afternoons exciting and Fridays Fabulous!!
