On Friday (November 9th) we are highlighting the work of Heidi Mittiga, creator of the Flossie Potter Patterns collection, by offering her brand new Layered Lettuce Jumper pattern for free on the first day of its release. This cute jumper is perfect for Fall and coordinates beautifully with a number of Heidi's other patterns. This new pattern will be free for one-day-only and then it will return to the regular price.
More About Heidi Mittiga and Flossie Potter Patterns, (in her own words): "Hello to all those who sew for the dolls you love!
I’m Heidi Mittiga, owner and creator of Flossie Potter Patterns. Since I joined Pixie Fair as an exclusive partner, nearly 70 of my patterns have been published! Thank you to all of you who have sewn my designs, whether for your private collections or for craft sales. I hope you will continue to follow my patterning journey.
To show my appreciation for your loyalty, I am offering for ONE DAY ONLY this brand-new design: the LAYERED LETTUCE JUMPER. It pairs nicely with my 1970s Body Suit.
For the chillier months, cover up with the NEW Flossie Potter Belted Cape and finish the ensemble with my Tam Cap."
More About The Layered Lettuce Jumper Pattern: Flossie Potter's Layered Lettuce Jumper is a basic piece that your 18" doll's wardrobe should not be without! Its simplicity lies in the fact that there is only one pattern piece which has a fold-up hem for the second layer's length.
The jumper is perfect for intermediate level seamstresses. It features long straps and closes in back with hook-and-loop tape that meets in the center so that there is no bulky overlap. Stretch fabric allows the skirt portion to hug the doll's silhouette as well as to form the distictive lettuce hems on the two-tiered thigh-high lengths. Sew it up in one color, two colors, or multicolored fabric for a new look every time.
Pair the jumper with Flossie Potter's 1970s Body Suit for a sleek style! (And for those chilly nights, don't forget Flossie Potter's Belted Cape and Tam Cap patterns!)
Here's a preview of the pattern cover.
We'd love to hear from you! Leave a comment below and thank Heidi!

Very nice looking jumper
Thank you for the cute jumper pattern!
I did not receive the Freebie Friday email and cannot locate the pattern to download. Can you please help me? This is super cute!
Such a cute outfit.
Wonderful patterns! Thank you for sharing your gift.
Thanks Heidi for the very cute and easy pattern!! Thanks also to Cinnamon for continuing this generous giveaway every Friday.
Thank you so very much Heidi, the jumper is adorable.
Thank you for the pattern. It is simple to do quick, the difficulty comes in using stretch material. I wished your example was done in this material and show how you would handle it. Can you say why you chose to use cotton in your instructions when you recommend stretch fabric?

Thank you Heidi, not just for making this pattern available free, but for all the lovely things you have designed. I really appreciate the care that you show to detail and also the way you seem to manage to capture the essence of the era of each garment.
I’m in England so to us a ‘jumper’ is what you would call a ‘sweater’. I found myself looking at the body suit and thinking ‘layered lettuce?’ Then I looked at the picture properly and smiled at my mistake!
Thank you it is so adorable.
Thank you, it is so cute!
