Free Doll Clothes Pattern (October 12th, 2018) Help Us Decide

Hi everyone,

On Friday (October 12th, 2018) we will offer a pattern from Robin Wasner of Dolls At Heart Designs  for free as a special one-day only event. We'd love to have you vote to help us decide which pattern will win, then be sure to come back Friday to get your free copy.

More About Robin and Dolls and Heart Designs, (in her own words)...

Dolls, sewing, fabric arts, and fashion have been a lifelong passion for me. As a young girl, I grew up learning to sew clothes for both myself and my dolls. I often drew fancy paper dolls and artistic sketches of my favorite dresses. Later when I became a stay at home mom, I took pattern making from noted designers and tailors. At the time, I founded my own business and created custom clothes for my clientele as well as my family. As my kids entered school, my interest in doll clothes was rekindled and I started a business in making and selling doll clothes. My main markets have been local craft fairs and online sites such as Etsy. Recently I have started as a designer with Pixie Faire and have sixteen published patterns to date. It is a joy for me to construct quality doll clothes and patterns. Please consider something made especially for your doll.:)

More information about the patterns:

 

Loopy Collar Dress Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®:  Inspired by a design from the 1970’s, this dress features a slit neck opening, puff sleeves with elastic at opening, empire waistline and gored flared skirt that falls above the knees on doll.

You will learn how to mark and sew darts, sew a slit neck opening; sew with facing and apply a collar to a neckline. You'll also learn how to sandwich layers, sew a gored skirt and insert a zipper.

This dress can be made in all over eyelet, made sleeveless without the collar, or with lace edging on the collar and sleeve edges, or with contrasting bias-cut edges. This dress is best made out of a cotton or cotton blend fabric. Contrast can be a lightweight synthetic or cotton and/or cotton blend.

1970's Ruffle Dress Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®:  This pattern that features a dress design typical of the 1970s era of fashion - a step back into the nostalgia of the 1970s where there were lots of flared looks in skirts and pants.

This dress design has a bodice with contrasting fabric in the center panel front and back with a ruffle along the edge from front to back, contrasting waistband and bias trim on sleeves and skirt bottom.

This dress has princess lines and set in sleeves with a slight flare, and flared skirt. You will learn how to line the bodice, hem curved edges, how to set in a sleeve, and how to cut and apply bias trim. The dress can also be made without the ruffle and/or using eyelet for the ruffle. Other options include ricrac for ruffles and/or embroidery for waistband.

Flutterby Dress Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®:  This dress has an A-line silhouette with flutter sleeves, flounce on skirt and a large collar edged with bias trim along the neckline.  It can be made with fashion fabric for the entire dress or can be made with contrasting collar and bias trim along sleeves and flounce. 

This dress can also be made sleeveless and/or without the skirt flounce as a shorter version.  It has multiple lines within the pattern pieces to accommodate a smaller 10 ¼ inch waist doll up to an 11-inch waist doll.  This dress can be made with retro prints or modern cotton prints and/or solids.  It can also be augmented with buttons or bows and/or a waistband. 

Tartan Plaid School Dress Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®:  This dress design is reminiscent of the 1940s era of fashion.  This dress has a contrast yoke with pin tuck detailing and/or a mock placket with buttons.  The lower front and back bodice are cut on the diagonal.  The dress has puff sleeves with cuffs.  The skirt is semi-full and falls at the knees on the doll.  Two skirt lengths are provided in pattern.  The skirt has two pockets with tucks and bias trim details.  The neckline is finished with contrast bias trim that matches pockets and cuffs on sleeves.  The dress also comes with two options for cutting the bodice on the straight of grain for fabrics with diamond print backgrounds.  This dress uses the Hong Kong finish method for the contrast bias trim on neckline, cuffs, and edges of pockets.  This method is used to reduce the bulk in seam allowances.

I voted for the Tartan dress because I wore a plaid dress in third grade and it was my favorite! (I actually had two plaid dresses.) It accidentally got ruined by some caulking that was spilled in my dad’s work truck when he took us kids to school one day. But it was fun while I had it! Oh the memories!

Thank you Robin for offering up a freebie pattern—and such good choices! It was hard to decide, but finally chose the school girl dress because it can be just that in traditional plaid or many other looks in pastels, etc. LOVE the one on Kit in the pattern photos—thanks again!

Wow too much cuteness! After several minutes flipping back and forth between them all, finally decided on the tartan dress, Just happen to have several pieces of small scale tartans, otherwise It would have been the 70s dress, which is when I was a teenager.

Hi… All so cute.
I chose the Tartan Plaid School Dress.
My Mom made one (or two) similar for me in the 50s but without the pockets. She put pockets in my pants and shorts but not in my dresses, she didn’t like me filling my dress pockets with all my ‘collectable’ do-dads and spoiling the look and all her hard work... :~D
Thank you, Robin, for this weeks free adorable patterns. :~)
