1930's Sleuth 18" Doll Clothes Pattern


Make this very special and nostalgic outfit to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl® and similar sized dolls like Tonner® My Imagination.

This beautiful concept for your 18" doll offers a  wide scope for fabric combinations.
In this pattern I give away my seamstress secrets so that people who do sewing for a living can achieve a perfect balance between stunning quality and speed and thus increase their hourly income.
As you can see in the examples, you can come up with really interesting color schemes.

The pattern includes detailed step by step instructions with photo illustrations.
With this pattern you can make:

- Blouse
- Skirt
- Jacket
- Hat
- Scarf
- Belt

This pattern is also available for Little Darling dolls. 

Recommended Fabrics: Cotton print, medium weight cotton


Supplies Needed:

• Coat and skirt: ½ yard cotton print or medium weight fabric; (I used cotton print), and 1 fat quarter cotton print for the lining.
• Hat: 1 fat quarter felt, and 1 fat quarter cotton print for the lining.
• Blouse: 1 fat quarter cotton print and 1 fat quarter cotton for the lining.
• ½ yard of ¼” wide cotton trim (or any trim that will curve as you sew).

• Buttons or snaps.
• Ironing starch.
• Tacky glue.
• If you want to apply my super-fast pleating method, you will need an iron grate that has 1” squares.
