Free Doll Clothes Patterns Friday (June 9) Help Us Decide

Hi everyone,

On Friday (June 9th, 2017) we are highlighting the work of Heidi Mittiga of Flossie Potter patterns. This pattern will be free one-day-only and then it will return to the regular price.

More About Heidi Mittiga and Flossie Potter Designs, (in her own words): Hello! I’m Heidi Mittiga, designer of Flossie Potter Patterns. I’ve been with Pixie Faire for several years now, and it’s been a wonderful experience where I’ve “met” many creative and talented people. My tag line is “Yesterday and Today,” which describes my love of all fashions. For instance, besides my modern-day designs, I have a collection of ‘60s – ‘70s clothing and accessories as well as several truly “historical” patterns (which means from way back, even before I was born!). I hope you enjoy my latest addition to the historical line, “Sisters,” which are two similar yet distinct dresses named after two of my granddaughters. Pair them with the “18th & 19th Century Homespun Handicrafts” to make your own lifelike displays. I’d love to see your photos!

Vote Now And Help Us Decide:

 

More About Each Pattern:

The Hip Hugger Bell Bottoms Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®: In the late 1960s – early 1970s, Hip-Hugger Bell-Bottom pants were the height of fashion.  No fabric or color was taboo – jeans, striped linen, cotton with brightly-colored flower motifs, and even polyester pantsuits were cut as bell-bottoms. Flossie Potter has re-created the look for your American Girl® Doll in this EASY pdf sewing pattern.  Sixteen pages of detailed instructions with full-color photo illustrations, three pages of full-size pattern pieces, and four pages of printable instructions (to save on printer ink!) show you how to make your own fashion statement.  What's more, the pants can be created with or without the optional belt-loops* to vary your doll's wardrobe.

The 60s & 70s Accessories Set Designed To Fit 18 Inch Doll Clothes Such As American Girl: If you were a girl in the late 1960s and early 1970s, these accessories were must-haves. Now your doll can wear them, too! The Flossie Potter '60s & '70s ACCESSORIES pdf pattern shows you how to make WATER BUFFALO SANDALS (extremely flat leather sandals with a toe loop), four styles of LEATHER HAIR CLASPS (large rectangle to hold all of your doll's hair, small rectangle to hold some hair, elliptical shape, and pigtail holders that lace up), and a BRAIDED BELT (which can be made with or without bead decoration). And, if you're like me, you'll be happy to know that there is NO GLUING involved! This PDF pattern has 15 pages of step-by-step instructions with full-color photos, 1 page of full-size pattern pieces, and 4 pages of summary instructions (to save on printer ink!). The

Woodstock Peasant Blouse Designed To Fit 18 Inch Doll Clothes Such As American Girl: Nothing represents a time of youthful freedom like the Woodstock concert!  It was a time to squeeze with your friends into a VW bus and head out to Yasgur's farm for "Three days of Peace & Music." The Flossie Potter Woodstock Peasant Top is reminiscent of the style of the day with its bell sleeves and flowing gauze, bedecked with flowers. You can create this popular top with Flossie's Easy-Plus PDF sewing pattern for 18" dolls.  Detailed instructions with 13 pages of full-color photos, full-sized pattern pieces, and printable directions (to save on printer ink!) make sewing a breeze! Pair this top with Flossie Potter's easy "Favorite Fringed Vest" to complete the look!

The 1970s Body Suit Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®: The Body Suit was a popular item of clothing in the 1970s.  These long-sleeved, fitted stretch turtleneck tops connected between the legs to stay tucked into skirts, slacks, and jumpers. The Flossie Potter 1970s Body Suit is based on that style.  It also features raglan sleeves and a wide, fold-down turtleneck collar (rather than a mock-turtleneck). The PDF sewing pattern contains 12 pages of full-color step-by-step instructions, 3 pages of summary instructions (to save on printer ink), and 4 pages of full-size pattern pieces.

There doesn’t appear to be a “button” to vote for the pattern you wish to have for Freebie Friday. I’m leaning toward the bell bottoms – but the peasant top would be good as well.

Just wanted to say “thank you” for participating in Freebie Friday!
Side note, I am on the east coast and checked Wednesday throughout the day and Thursday morning (about 9:40 am EST) and the most recent post under Freebie Friday was last week (June 2). Just checked again (8:50 pm EST) and found this week’s pattern, although the poll is closed. While I missed the vote, all of these patterns look groovy. Thank you again!

Thank you very much for the free pattern Heide. I have purchased a few of your patterns already and enjoyed working with them. I was a teen in the 70’s and all four of the choices are dear to my heart. I voted for the bodysuit. The very first Christmas present my husband, then boyfriend, gave me was a bodysuit…navy with tiny red apples printed on it. I was studying to be a teacher so it was very appropriate.

Thank you to all of you for your kind words. It was a lot of fun to make these ’70s patterns. My favorite outfit is bell bottoms with the peasant top and the fringed vest. My brother had given me a suede vest much like that one.

It’s Thursday. 3 pm. Pacific Time. The poll is no longer letting people vote! The good news for me is that I would have voted for the Woodstock Peasant Top if I could have voted, and it’s ahead.

Looks like others are having voting problems as well.

I wish I would have had time to vote (but anyway, my favorite pattern won!). This Thursday morning, the poll wasn’t up yet, and this Thursday afternoon, it’s already closed! Is it a glitch in my browser?

Thank you Flossie Potter for the free pattern!

I remember wearing all these fashions in high school and college. I loved the long sleeve body suits. You could wear the low cut bell bottoms and not worry you were showing your bare skin or underwear! Your shirt never came untucked. It was very user friendly. Talk about a blast from the past. In truth I was glad to see bell bottoms go away back then. Some were huge!

Christie

June 08, 2017

These are all patterns I would love to own! Very much my style :) I think I am going to vote for the bodysuit because I can think of so many uses for it, but the accessories pattern is really tempting too…and those bell bottoms! Anyway, thank you :D

I can remember being about 5 or 6 years old and wearing an outfit that consisted of blue daisy-print bellbottoms, a matching vest, and a gauzy blouse similar to the pattern. Tough choice, but I had to go with the blouse! Thanks for the freebie!

Am I dating myself when I say; I recall wearing hip huggers, cotton gauze or printed lawn or often embroidered peasant tops and macramé belts? To conclude; though I love them all I think the hip huggers ’n bell bottoms are my favourite. Thanking you for your generosity in offering them as an optional freebie Friday selection.

Heidi, thank you so much for contributing to Freebie Friday. I love all of your patterns and have several already. I voted for the Woodstock Peasant Blouse because it is such an iconic ’70’s design, (and I just found some “new” fabric — from an antique store — that would be perfect for it). However, I will enjoy whichever pattern wins the vote. Again, thank you, and God bless.

Like you, I love and have sown historical, vintage, 60’s, 70’s and super modern designs and love them all.
