More About Donna and Eden Ava Couture (in her own words).
I taught myself to sew when I was a very young 20 year old, who was starting a new job, and needed a quick wardrobe. I moved on to sewing for the home when I purchased my first house. When my daughters started collecting American Girl Dolls, I found I could make most of the clothes in one evening….and that was it…..I was hooked by the instant gratification! Designing and sewing for American Girl Dolls has become a passion for me. Partnering with Pixie Faire is a both a thrill and an honor!

Dear Pixie Faire,
Why Don’t you offer the pattern that won last week as the free pattern for this week.
I am late, but a big thank you for participating in last Friday’s Freebie.
NOT answering our questions AND removing our comments about the pattern that won not being offered as the free one is not cool!!! Very bad business Pixie Faire!!! We were all nice about it and were just curious. An explenation would have been nice and whatever the reason would have been fine, we just wanted to know.
Really love the 70’s summer fun outfit! Really love the tie front top. It doesn’t look that difficult to make.
Thanks Donna for this lovely pattern.

I cast my vote for the tennis outfit. It would be quick to make and could be so easily personalized. And, by changing the length, you could create a lot of variations.
