Free Doll Clothes Pattern (February 9th, 2018 ) Help Us Decide

Hi everyone,

On Friday (February 9th, 2018) we are offering a free pattern by designer Gaby Shearer. Gaby is the creator of the Originals By Gaby and Baby Mine brands. The pattern will be free starting at Midnight Pacific Time and free one-day-only. And if the pattern you voted for doesn't win, just go ahead and buy it anyway as a way to thank Gaby!

More About Gaby Shearer (in her own words): I began sewing at the young age of 6 on my mom’s sewing machine.  When I turned 8, she rewarded me with my very first Barbie doll patterns, many of which I still have! I purchased my first sewing machine – an old Singer Treadle – as a newlywed. It was then that I started creating doll clothes and altering patterns to fit Madame Alexander dolls. I didn’t have kids of my own yet so gave them away to others who could use them. I was soon blessed with 2 daughters and had a ball creating party dresses, play clothes and Halloween costumes. I’m now happily retired and thoroughly enjoy my rekindled love of sewing and creating doll clothes.  Publishing my patterns is just an added bonus. The real blessing comes when I get to see all of the amazing outfits created with the use of my patterns!

The Christening Gown is beautiful, but I chose the Leesburg mini this time! I would like to see all of the options offered for Wellies or Bittys once in a while because the 18 inch seem to win each time.

Thank you for offering a free pattern this week! I am throwing my vote in for the christening gown. It looks beautiful. I think my kids would actually like the bonnet the best. They don’t have a bitty baby, but I am sure with minor adjustments the bonnet could fit other dolls.

I love the Leesburg mini with it’s inverted pleat! Thank you very much to Gaby for offering her patterns for Freebie Friday—it’s so appreciated. I would like to see a Freebie Friday with four choices for the 13-14" inch dolls—Wellies, Corelle, Heart to Heart, etc. They never have a chance to win against the 18" doll patterns. Surely, those with only 18" dolls could sit out one week to give the rest of us a chance on the other patterns since they have gotten 18" patterns every week since this started, possibly with a Bitty Baby in there once or twice. Thanks!

I feel as though I have enough stylish skirts for the 18" doll, so I chose the christening gown. With less or different ornamentation and a shorter skirt it could become a flannel nightgown. With a different skirt on that same yoke, and a happy cotton print, and some rick rack or embroidery, it could be a day dress.

Thank you, Pixie Faire, for sponsoring Freebie Friday. Big thank you to Gaby!!! The designs are beautiful, but what I really appreciated is seeing that you had included cutting lines in the Leesburg for the Pre-Mattel dolls. I usually have to check pattern measurements for making our Molly’s clothes. So sweet of you to consider sewing for “vintage” AG. Hard to believe that Molly has been in our family for 22 years…

I totally agree that it would be nice to have just Welli and Bitty patterns and no 18" for a change and if there’s a designer in the loop coming up, it would be nice if they would take those wishes into consideration. I LOVE the Christening dress, voting for that as I already have Carly and have used it a lot. Thanks you for the pattern offerings

Thanks so much, Gaby! Love your patterns (that christening gown is fantastic for the detail)! I voted for the Leesburg mini skirt, since we only have AG dolls, and my daughter is a fashionista (much prefers the fitted waistband over an elastic one). Thanks, Cinnamon, for another great gift!
