Free Doll Clothes Pattern From Forever 18 Inches (Friday July 7th, 2017) Help Us Decide

Hi everyone,

On Friday (July 7th) we'll have a free pattern available from Karen Wadsworth the designer behind the popular Forever 18 Inches brand. Help us decide which pattern should be free and be sure to come back to Pixie Faire on Friday and download your free copy.

More About Karen In Her Own Words: I've always loved dolls. My tenth birthday present from my mother was an honest-to-goodness sewing basket filled to the brim with supplies, and a Barbie pattern. I was in heaven! I sewed throughout my high school years, and then began again when my great nieces received American Girl dolls. My teenage sons were horrified that their mother was playing with dolls. During that time I also discovered Liberty Jane patterns. Wow--stylish, detailed patterns for dolls with fantastic instructions and a beautiful fit! Before I realized what was happening I was designing my own patterns. Partnering with PixieFaire as a seller and designer has been such a fun adventure! I'm grateful to those of you who have become customers and friends along the way. This pattern is my thank you to all of you--enjoy!

More About Each Pattern

The Nautical Skirt Designed To Fit Disney Animator® Dolls: Calling all Disney Animator Dolls ready for an adventure! The Nautical Skirt With Pockets Pattern a skirt with deep pockets—so handy for dolls and their friends who want to stow important treasures! Option 1 of this PDF sewing pattern has decorative topstitching, an inset panel, deep patch pockets, a faux-buttoned waistband, and a straight gathered skirt that can be used with border prints or stripes. Option 2 is a simplified version of Option 1 to make the skirt an easy-level sewing project for newer seamstresses. Both skirts have flat fronts and elasticized backs for easy dressing and fit. Recommended Fabrics:  Light-weight woven fabric with a tight weave and bit of drape.

The Infinity Dress Designed To Fit 18 Inch Journey Girl® Dolls: Wrap it, tie it, change it! The amazing and versatile Infinity Dress is now available for Journey Girls dolls, with skirt choices available in a short and full length, and an option for using differing fabrics for the bodice and skirt for your own unique designer look. The dress itself is very simple: it’s formed by joining four rectangles of varying sizes together, and sews together quickly. Like the “Big People” version, the straps have an infinite series of possibilities in the way they can be tied to form different looks—hence the name of the dress. It can be worn as a sun dress, party dress, bridesmaid’s dress, or an elegant formal, depending on the fabric, length, and how it’s tied. Make your own version of this PDF pattern, and you’ll have a blast playing with the straps and all their possibilities! Recommended Fabrics:  Lightweight knits with a moderate (no more than 30%) one-way stretch Special Note - This pattern is designed to fit a Journey Girls Doll specifically and will not fit the standard 18 inch doll such as American Girl Doll. A Journey Girls doll is 18 inches tall but has a much slimmer body. You can see more info on our Doll Measurements page. This pattern is also available to fit American Girl dolls.

The Button Front Jumper For A Girl For All Time® Dolls: The Faux Button Jumper is a simple pattern with detailing that looks complicated--but isn't! It looks like it has a front placket, but looks can be deceiving. The placket is all show, and the jumper actually has only three main pattern pieces, plus cut strips for Straps and Optional Pockets. Option 1 is an Easy-level project for newer seamstress or those who want quick results (no closures, no lining, no facing, no worries!). Option 2 is slightly more advanced, and is finished with a lining to accommodate lighter-weight fabrics. Either option can be made with or without the optional pockets. The directions have been written comprehensively with many explanatory details for those who are newer to sewing. An experienced seamstress will probably be able to construct the Jumper just by reading the instructions highlighted in bold text. Happy sewing! Special Note - This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit A Girl For All TimeDolls specifically and will not fit the standard 18 inch doll such as American Girl Doll. An AGAT doll is 16 inches tall and has a slimmer hard plastic body. You can see more info on our Doll Measurements page.

The Frill Seekers Dress Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®: Calling all Girly Girls! Traditional but contemporary, this pretty dress features a lined faux-wrap bodice, optional ruffles around the neckline or shoulders, a full gathered skirt cut on a gentle bias, and a self tie. It closes in the back with snaps or hook and loop tape. Two options are given for the neckline trim: contrasting purchased trim, or a self-ruffle that is finished off with easy bias edging using a Hong Kong Finish. A detailed tutorial on how to sew an attached lining with finished seams is also included in this PDF pattern. Don't miss the coordinating little sister pattern designed to fit 14.5" dolls such as WellieWishers™, also available on Pixie Faire. Recommended Fabrics:  Light to medium-weight cottons, lightweight chambray, denim, or corduroy, lightweight sateens, silks, or brocades
