On Friday (March 17th, 2017) we'll have one of the following four doll clothes patterns available for free. This week we're featuring the work of Jennifer Serr. Jennifer is Owner and Lead Designer at Bonjour Teaspoon Patterns - A sewing pattern company specializing in Classic Style for the Modern Girl & Her Doll. She's a San Francisco Bay Area mom (to Emma - 12 years old), with over 20 years in the fashion industry and over a decade of teaching experience, Jennifer is also Owner and Lead Instructor at The Sewing Room - a sewing workshop for kids, teens and adults.
More About Jennifer in her own words: "While on a couture tour in Paris, I met a very special little pug named Teaspoon. Teaspoon represents all things cute and fabulous to me and thus inspired the name of this enterprise. Now a little dog named Magic keeps me company in the studio. I started out designing patterns for my students to use in my classes. After a while, some of them wanted to make clothing for their dolls and they introduced me to Liberty Jane Patterns. Impressed by the stylish clothing patterns that were offered, I decided to make doll versions of my girl patterns. Combining my childhood love of dolls along with my fashion industry background has added a wonderful layer to what I offer my students at The Sewing Room."

Thank you so much for your generosity! I want them all, I want to wear them all in real life, and I want them in my daughter’s size too (happy to see that that is an option for the Annie dress!). I think my favourite is the Annie dress—the crispness is so appealing for spring and summer!

I have the Chloe skirt and love the pattern so I would vote for the Cate Shift Dress. Love those details.
Very cute designs. Hard to decide but voted for the Cate Shift Dress. Thank you for your generosity. All of them are cute
I was torn between the Annie Ruffle dress and the Cate Shift dress, as I can see both on my AG dolls. There is so much that can be done to either of these wonderful creations, making them just the way they were designed, varying your fabric choices, adding or deleting ruffles or belts, making the buttons the center point, etc. I could not make my mind up so I flipped a coin and voted for the Cate Shift dress.
Thank you for your lovely creations. Just love your outline picture—they show the front and back and really accentuates the details. Thanks
The Annie dress gets my vote.
Thank you Jennifer for all the patterns! The Cate shift dress is already part of my collection!! Little ruffles are so cute for little girls! Annie’s ruffle dress is my choice this time!
I think the Ava Lounge Jacket is cute and different.
So hard to choose. I’m voting for the Cate dress because of the collar. Thank you so so much.
Can’t lose this week, they are all great! I’m torn between the Annie dress and the jacket.
This is way to hard, think I’ll just enjoy which ever one wins, though I love the skirt. Thank you “sew” much!
Difficile de choisir cette semaine… merci pour ce beau partage.
Love them all. Can’t wait to see which one wins for freebie Friday"

I love them all – will enjoy whichever one is the winner, but at the moment I am looking for boy / unisex patterns so the jacket got my vote. Thank you Jennifer for this great offer
Cate ruffles for me please
I like all of them but leaning toward Annie Ruffle Dress. However, there’s nowhere to vote!
I love the Cate Shift Dress! It will look darling in so many different fabrics. Dressy or casual. What a treet!! Thank you so much.
Annie’s ruffle dress would be a great addition to our collection
The Chloe skirt is very cool. Pockets are the bomb in our world. Thanks a lot!!
Thank you Jennifer! There are so many cute details in each of the patterns that I’ve fallen in love with all of them. Guess if I have to choose just one, it would be the Cate Shift dress…but I’d be happy with any of the other three, too!
Thank you for the lovely choices, I vote for the Cate Shift Dress.
Lounge jacket. Very nice. Thank you
I vote for Cate Shift Dress, it looks like fun to make. Thanks for the free patterns! Love all patterns, they look all great.
The chloe skirt is really cute. So casual and comfy looking. My Grandaughters doll would love as would mine. I hope it wins.
Each one is so stylish! And don’t be afraid of the KNIT fabric lounge jacket pattern. Jump in and quickly master knits, using the correct needle and stitch on your machine, paying attention to nap stretch, and make a matching one in the girls sized pattern! Thank you for offering these delightful patterns.
I asked Lily. She likes the button down the front ruffle dress. I think she likes the buttons all the way down. It is very elegant. She also likes the belt and she will be making on this color. She thinks the jacket is too old fashion for her dolls.
Thank you Jennifer for these adorable designs to choose from. I love the Annie Ruffle Dress. It is perfect for our long-awaited Spring!
