On Friday (February 19, 2016) we'll have one of the following four patterns available for free. This week we're featuring the inspiring work of Marilyn Clarkin and her brand QTπ Doll Clothing.
More About Marilyn In Her Own Words: “I am happily married to my wonderful husband Richard and we are blessed with three beautiful daughters. My professional background is in children’s ministries, but I have enjoyed sewing for over 20 years. Throughout the years I have sewn for local dance schools and theatres groups. With three daughter I have sewn my fair share little girls clothes. In spring 2013 my love for sewing doll clothes began and in March 2014, I started designing patterns for 18” dolls such as American Girl® and Maplelea®. In September of 2015 I added Kidz 'n' Cats to the QTπ family. I enjoy designing and creating modern everyday clothing and shoes. I love keeping up with current fashion and recreating it for your 18” friends."
