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®. I enjoy designing and creating modern everyday clothing and shoes. I love keeping up with current fashion and recreating it."

Any of these awesome patterns would be great… though I have to admit, now that I’ve finally looked at Marilyn’s instagram, I can’t wait for the next release on her Etsy shop since there’s no way I’d be able to make clothes as cute as hers, even if I use her patterns!
