Free Doll Clothes Pattern Friday (June 2nd) Help Us Spread The Word

Hi everyone,

On Friday (June 2nd) we'll offer a Free Doll Clothes Pattern from Craig Sharp of Sharp Dressed Dolls free for one day only. Help us spread the word and be sure to come back to Pixie Faire on Friday and download your free copy (you can also see the details in our Friday Newsletter)!

More About Craig In His Own Words: I currently live in a pastoral community in southern Tennessee. My mother worked in the garment industry and my father worked as a sewing machine mechanic, one could say sewing is in my blood. My first job at the age of 16 was working in the cutting room of a garment manufacturing company. Growing up my mother made most of my and my brother’s suites.  She encouraged my love of textiles and couture finished garments. I begin sewing for children when my youngest niece, Hailey was born. I always made her coordinating church dolls to go with the outfits that I designed for her.  Soon, I submitted me first pattern to Sew Beautiful Magazine, an international periodical. Since that time many of my designs and editorials have been featured in Martha Pullen’s magazines and heirloom doll clothing books.  I have taught doll fashion and heirloom sewing at many fabric shops and clubs around the middle Tennessee area. To celebrate Craig’s birthday this month he is graciously offering the Clara Pattern as a free download.

More Information About The New Pattern: Clara is the first in a series of seven in the Tribute Collection. The PDF pattern features a princess line dress with a twelve gore tea length skirt. Although, it is shown in only three different styles, it has virtually limitless design possibilities by interchanging the bodices, sleeves and skirts. All three bodice views are self-lined so the inside of the dress will look just as extraordinary as the outside. 

Take a Look At The Pattern Below:

 

Be sure to leave a comment and let us know what you think of this new pattern - and be sure to thank Craig and wish him a happy birthday too!

First of all; ♫ HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU Craig ♫ and may you enjoy many, many more and thank you for your generosity! I particularly love the kerchief (?) hemline in one of the views.
P.S.: My son has degrees in both fashion design and haute couture and like yourself at an early age showed an interest in the trade when at the age of five would staple and glue fabric together for his sister’s Barbie dolls … ☺.
