Free Doll Clothes Pattern (August 3rd, 2018) Help Us Decide

Hi everyone,

On Friday (August 3rd, 2018) we will offer a pattern from Robin Wasner of Dolls At Heart Designs  for free as a special one-day only event. We'd love to have you vote to help us decide which pattern will win, then be sure to come back Friday to get your free copy.

More About Robin and Dolls and Heart Designs, (in her own words)...

Dolls, sewing, fabric arts, and fashion have been a lifelong passion for me. As a young girl, I grew up learning to sew clothes for both myself and my dolls. I often drew fancy paper dolls and artistic sketches of my favorite dresses. Later when I became a stay at home mom, I took pattern making from noted designers and tailors. At the time, I founded my own business and created custom clothes for my clientele as well as my family. As my kids entered school, my interest in doll clothes was rekindled and I started a business in making and selling doll clothes. My main markets have been local craft fairs and online sites such as Etsy. Recently I have started as a designer with Pixie Faire and have sixteen published patterns to date. It is a joy for me to construct quality doll clothes and patterns. Please consider something made especially for your doll.:)

This pattern features a knit top with shirring in front and an asymmetrical neck opening, slightly flared sleeves that can be made with a single knit fabric as option 1, or with an overlay as in option 2 or option 3 as a longer version. The top is paired with a flared skirt that can be made in either faux leather or in a medium weight woven fabric such as satin, or brocade or even a light weight denim fabric. The longer version is a casual top that can be paired with pants, skirt or shorts of your choice.
In this pattern, you will learn how to sew with single knits. The knit fabric should have 25% to 75% stretch on the cross grain. There are 3 options for the top included: Option 1 single knit only. Option 2 is done doing an overlay with knit mesh and polyester knit solid as the layer underneath. Option 3 is made with a single knit as in Option 1 but longer.
This outfit has many finishing possibilities for the bottom edge of the top. It can be finished with a bias trim, fold-over-elastic, an organdy ruffle or ribbon detailing. The skirt has elastic in the waistband for ease of fit and opening at back with hook and loop tape closure.

Regency Era Dress Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®:  This is a dress design reminiscent of the early 1800's.  The dress has an empire waistline, leg of mutton sleeves and a gathered skirt that falls above the ankles on an 18-inch doll.  The bodice has a scoop neckline with contrast ruffle, three columns of lace down center front and is fully lined.  The skirt has two rows of tucks and ribbon along the bottom edge.  This dress can be made with variations that include premade lace for the neckline and sleeves, other adornments for the bodice center front of your own choosing, and/or without the ruffle along the neckline, and sleeves. 

Loopy Collar Dress Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®:  Inspired by a design from the 1970’s, this dress features a slit neck opening, puff sleeves with elastic at opening, empire waistline and gored flared skirt that falls above the knees on doll.

This dress can be made in all over eyelet, made sleeveless without the collar, or with lace edging on the collar and sleeve edges, or with contrasting bias-cut edges. This dress is best made out of a cotton or cotton blend fabric. Contrast can be a lightweight synthetic or cotton and/or cotton blend.

1970's Ruffle Dress Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®:  This pattern that features a dress design typical of the 1970s era of fashion - a step back into the nostalgia of the 1970s where there were lots of flared looks in skirts and pants.

This dress design has a bodice with contrasting fabric in the center panel front and back with a ruffle along the edge from front to back, contrasting waistband and bias trim on sleeves and skirt bottom.

This dress has princess lines and set in sleeves with a slight flare, and flared skirt. You will learn how to line the bodice, hem curved edges, how to set in a sleeve, and how to cut and apply bias trim. The dress can also be made without the ruffle and/or using eyelet for the ruffle.

Well, it took me a while to pick, but I love the 70’s Ruffle Dress the best! I think it shows a more care free nature of what the kids should be! I’m a huge retro fan, and this takes me back!

So hard to choose as all the patterns are adorable, but I finally cast my vote for the 70s dress… I swear a girl in my kindergarten class (1972) had that exact dress. Oh my goodness, now I’ve publicly admitted to being a dinosaur (but a dinosaur that never grew up and still loves making doll clothes!). Whichever pattern wins, thank you Robin and Cinnamon for the Freebie Friday!

Thank you, Robin, for the lovely patterns to choose from. I chose the regency dress. I began making historical clothes for American Girl dolls when my grandniece was given Elizabeth just as she was being retired. The family lived overseas and my niece planned to incorporate the doll, her stories, and clothes for teaching American history, but they had no period clothes. I was asked to make some. I loved it! And then Caroline came out. But there weren’t any patterns for her. With this choice, I will have a master regency pattern! Thank you again.

Robin, your patterns are so lovely! I have several already. My vote went to the Regency Dress because it has such nice lines and I love your sleeve design. It would look so nice in many different retro fabrics. It could also be shortened to give it a bit of a ’70’s appearance. Thank you for this week’s contribution to Freebie Friday! :)
