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.

Thank you for this pattern! It brings back lots of memories. I made a jumper of this exact same design in 1970 of a crepe-like finish navy blue polyester double knit fabric. I loved that jumper.
I just love the layered jumper look! This opens up our imagination to many color options!
