Free Doll Clothes Pattern (June 16, 2017) Help Us Decide

Hi everyone,

On Friday (June 16th, 2017) we are offering a free doll clothes pattern from Cherie Peden of Ma Petite Cherie Couture. Be sure to vote today and then come back and get your copy of the winning pattern on Friday. 

More About Cherie: I have been sewing since I was about 4 years old. I learned to sew at my mothers knee. I learned to sew Barbie clothes not by hand but by machine. I remember when I was about 10 seeing an outfit that my Grandmother had made for her Barbie that she had done completely by hand and thinking why would anyone take that kind of time. I learned to crochet at age 7 again under my mothers watchful eye. I also learned to knit but as crochet builds faster knitting fell the way of hand sewing I do if needed. I am the wife to a software engineer and mother to 4 daughters that I home schooled for most of their elementary years. When I am not designing and writing doll clothes patterns I work as a teachers aide in a private school.

Visiting Grandmas 15" Doll Clothes: This color blocked 70's inspired dress is the perfect place to show off that little bit of trim that you love, but don't know what to do with.

Button Up Beauties 15" Doll Clothes: Button Up Beauties are a style that is enduring through all generations. It features heirloom details such as pleating and piping. The piping is made out of the same fabric as the shorts or skirt. The shorts or skirt button on to the shirt or blouse with real working buttonholes and are fully lined.  This PDF pattern is designed to fit 15" dolls such as Bitty Baby®. Recommended Fabrics:  Cotton for the shirt or blouse and cotton or lightweight wool for the shorts or skirt.

Cool Summer Ruffles Pattern Designed To Fit 18" Dolls: This trendy one shoulder tunic or dress is sure to be a go to item for summer fun! The tunic would go great with a pair of leggings or tights.  This pattern can be worked up in either knit fabric or a light weight woven fabric.

Oh. I’m so slow this week! I missed putting in my vote for the adorable detailed classic button up suits. Busy nursing my little dog back from almost death after a dreadful road accident. Relieved she is out of the woods, but it’s been a scary week
The button up set is exceptional. I love the detail. Gorgeous. I’m a sucker for pintucks and piping! So will just have to put it on my shopping list?
Thanks so much for Freebie Friday. It’s lovely.

Really frustrated here, too. Checking for Freebie Fridays on Wednesday is a high spot on the week. (Yes, I know, I have no life. But this is fun for those who sew!) Anyhow, I love taking part in the pole and feeling like my opinion counts, too, and this is the 2nd week in a row I’ve never gotten to put my 2 cents in.

Any chance you guys can fix this before it happens too much again? Really puts a damper on things, not that I’m not grateful, I am. It just feels good knowing you contributed, even if you lost. :)

It’s Thursday evening. 10:09 pm. This is not cool. The poll is already closed. As it is I dislike having to wait until Thursday every week to vote. We should be able to cast our vote anytime after Monday. I’ve never understood this.

Once again, began checking for the voting on Freebie Friday on WEDNESDAY, checked periodically through the day and again today. Now I’m on and the poll is closed before I even had a chance to vote! What’s the deal with this?! I love the free patterns, but I also want to vote for the one I like best. Sounds like many others are having the same issue. It’d be nice to have an email or something explaining why so many of us are missing the voting window.

Started looking for this weeks Freebie Friday on Wed and checked several times today, but it didn’t pop up until just after 4:30 and IT WAS ALREADY CLOSED! It’s really frustrating. How do you all find it before it closes? It’s always been so much fun to vote and find out which one won.

Thank you for your generosity, Cherie.
All your patterns are fabulous, but since I (as well as my daughter and granddaughters) have 18" dolls, those are the patterns we prefer.
I voted for the cool summer ruffles, but even the crocheted vest is absolutely adorable.
Thank you!

Cool Summer Ruffles gets my vote this week. It is so adorable as a top and would make a lovely summer dress if lengthened – I can just feel the soft breezes brushing by. Thanks to Pixie Faire and to Cherie for the offerings.

I love these patterns. I am most drawn to Button Up Beauties. Not sure why, is it the muted colour? Of course these patterns fit the bitty babies as well as the bitty twins. Anyway, it gets my vote today.

Even though I don’t sew for Bitty Baby, I’m voting for button-up beauties. I know that others don’t sew for 18" dolls and Freebie Friday should be shared with them as well. As usual, thank you Pixie Faire and Cherie for your generosity. :)
