On Friday (August 26, 2016) we're offering a free doll clothes pattern from Karen Wadsworth of Forever 18 Inches as a special one-day only event rather than having the "normal" Freebie Friday voting. We'd love to have you help us spread the word and be sure to get your copy!
More About Karen Wadsworth and Forever 18 Inches, (in her own words).
I've always loved dolls. My tenth birthday present from my mother was an honest-to-goodness sewing basket filled to the brim with supplies, and a Barbie pattern. I was in heaven! I sewed throughout my high school years, and then began again when my great nieces received American Girl dolls. My teenage sons were horrified that their mother was playing with dolls. During that time I also discovered Liberty Jane patterns. Wow--stylish, detailed patterns for dolls with fantastic instructions and a beautiful fit! Before I realized what was happening I was designing my own patterns. Partnering with PixieFaire as a seller and designer has been such a fun adventure! I'm grateful to those of you who have become customers and friends along the way. This pattern is my thank you to all of you--enjoy!

Adorable rendition of this jacket- I remember it well. Thank you so much for sharing you talent with us.
Thank you for this lovely pattern
Thank you, Karen, for such a lovely design & your generosity. Friday freebies are very popular and such a treat. Thanks too, Cinnamon & team for all you do!
Wow. The first time I looked at this pattern it took me right back to the suits my mother would wear to church. Making this suit will make me feel closer to her since she passed away 10 years ago. It will be lots of fun to make.
Thank you making this pattern available.
looks like something Jackie O would wear.
Thank you Karen and Pixiefaire for another excellent choice for our Freebie Friday. This could also be Mary Tyler-Moore, or That Girl Marlo Thomas look as well as Jackie O. Jackie is smiling from Heaven at the thought of all of us copying her way of dress. Groovy 1960’s. Go Flower Children!
Thank you for a ‘classic’ design. We were in DC at the time my home town had the tragic event happen, tears were shed for the Kennedys and Dallas and we who now live back home still grieve for our country. This design will give many a parent a way to explain events to her child. Thank you again. And God Bless The United States1
As usual Karen you have outdone yourself. I love how easy this pattern is and it is beyond elegant!
Whoa……sweet pattern. Thank you for sharing it. Looking forward to Friday.
Thank you for sharing this lovely pattern. It reminds me so much of the outfits Jackie Kennedy wore. I am so eager to give it a try.
Thank you for generously offering such a great pattern!
Such a beautiful outfit. Thank you so much for the pattern!
Great style! Thank you for making the pattern available to everyone. I can’t wait for Friday.
So cute! Thank you for sharing your pattern with us, Karen.
Great design—I had one very similar that I wore at the beginning of my working career—it was mint green.
Adorable pattern! Many thanks for this Freebie Friday offer. What a fantastic surprise. I have several of your patterns, and I love them all. So great for the new Melody doll too. Thank you very much. God bless.
OMG This is just like an outfit I made in college except the jacket had long sleeves. It is absolutely adorable. You are so kind to let us have the pattern. Thank you so much. Can’t wait to make it.
I literally gasped when I saw this adorable outfit on Pinterest the other day. I am truly flabbergasted at your amazing generosity. So many of us from the 1960’s remember this charming style and now can convey that same love to our grandchildren, while getting to be kids again, ourselves.Thank you so much!!
Thank-you so much for your generous gift. I have, so far, four of your patterns and love every one of them.
This is beautiful, sure brings back memories, thank you so much!
What a great way to celebrate the arrival of Melody in the AG world! Thank you Karen, this is a lovely pattern, so very classy and true to era!
What a beautiful design. I’ve purchased many of your designs and love the way they fit and your attention to detail. Can’t wait to make this one, too. Thanks so much for offering it for freebie Friday!!
Thanks for offering this pattern.
Thank you so much! This is a gorgeous pattern
Oh my goodness! I had this outfit when I was 14!. Complete with the pillbox hat, white gloves and pumps, and single strand pearl necklace! I loved that boxy little unstructured jacket made of a very small green and white houndstooth plaid, and white braided soutache binding on the edges.
I’ll be making this for sure! Thank you so much for this very cute pattern!
Adorable, thank you !
I’ve had my eye on this…I love this outfit! Thank you!

So cute! Thank you for the pattern.
