Get to know Karen (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!
Get to know her a little more with this fun Q and A interview!
Q. What's your favorite food?
Karen: There isn't much I don't like. But if it packs some heat it will usually be high on the approval list. Chiles, salsa, Szechuan, Thai….bring it on! I do make exceptions for dark chocolate.
Q. What's your favorite tv show, movie, or book?
Karen: I like NCIS and The Great British Baking Show, and love the 1995 A&E version of Pride and Prejudice. The David Suchet series of Hercule Poirot stories is wonderful, too! Return to Me and Babette's Feast are two of my favorite movies. Favorite book? That's like trying to name a favorite child. But I enjoy reading anything by C.S. Lewis, Dorothy Sayers, James Herriot, Jane Austen, and George MacDonald. Tom Sawyer and Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy are other favorites.
Q. Coffee or tea?
Karen: Both. Coffee with strong flavors and tea with more delicate ones. Except for ginger tea. It's a stand-alone any-time-of-the-day drink. (As I think about it, it's probably because of the heat factor.)
Q. Where's your favorite place to shop?
Karen: I can get lost for hours in a used bookstore. I also love cruising through fabric stores, art supply stores, nurseries, and produce stands. When I visited the downtown flower market warehouse I felt like I was stepping into Oz! Basically, anything that deals with color is very appealing.
Q. What inspired your brand name?
Karen: It's a play on the Forever 21 store name. My husband loves puns and I think it rubbed off on me.
Q. What is your dream vacation?
Karen: There's so much I'd like to see..but anywhere with beautiful scenery where I can paint is a plus. I'd love to visit Israel and spend a lot of time in Italy and Switzerland.
We'd love to hear from you. Leave a comment and tell us - which look is best! And be sure to thank Karen and the Pixie Faire team for giving away such cute outfits!

So cute! It’s a gorgeous dress, and could be paired with so many different accessories (or done in different fabrics) for new looks. I picked Ala Moana because I love the sunglasses.
I chose Market Stroll because the hat is so cute.
The Ala Moana is my favorite. Not only is Moana my granddaughter’s favorite movie EVER, but her American Girl doll is her favorite possession!! I love making clothes and accessories for her!! Thank you Karen and the Pixie Faire team for another great outfit giveaway!!
The hat makes the outfit!

Wow! Thanks Karen and Pixie Faire. What a cute dress! I LOVE the straw hat with it, so the market stroll outfit is my favorite.

Love the Ala Moana look. It makes me want to get on a plane, see the water, and feel the breeze. Great job.

Thank you Karen and the Pixie Faire Team. Market Stroll wears it best.
Love the Market Stroll, with the hat!
I have to pick the market stroll because I just LOVE the hat!
I like Ala Moana the best. Her hair goes great with the dress fabric. Adorable!
I have to say that I rally like the fit of the bodice on the dress. It is styled so that the top edge is up high enough on the doll to look right and not show “anything.” ;) It has a nice cut. And the dress looks great both ways!
Ala Moana looks the best to me , she so cute and looks so ready for Summer. Thank you so much Karen and Pixie Faire for giving this cute outfit away.
I am in love with Both Outfits !!! I voted for Ala Moana. But I would take both.
Market stroll works so well with that lovely hat. We used to get a new summer hat every year for Easter and wear it to church every week. Thanks for the opportunity and the ideas. Happy stitching everyone!!
So cute! It’s a toss up!
