Winner's Circle 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

3 reviews   |  

Winner’s Circle, by Karen Lorraine Design, consists of a lined Dress and a fancy Picture Hat that together create a chic outfit. Style line darts on the Dress allow for an attractive fitted shape, while an easy-opening back is ideal for children’s hands. There are three layers of petal ruffles on the sleeves (which can be lined or unlined) and a little puff at each sleevehead. The Picture Hat has a soft lined interior and can be interfaced if desired (- I have). Embellishments added to the Dress and Hat such as ribbons, trim, and beadwork finish off a winning set so your doll is ready for any classy occasion.

This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

Recommended Fabrics: Woven cotton or stretch fabrics for the Dress, like quilting cotton, cottons, or polyesters. Woven cotton fabrics for the Picture Hat, like quilting cotton or broadcloth.

Supplies Needed:

  • “Fabric One” 24" (wide) x 23" (deep), woven cotton, non-stretch or 2-way knit stretch fabric like quilting cotton, cottons, polyester stretch fabrics
  • “Fabric Two” 20" (wide)" x 11" (deep) woven cotton, non-stretch or knit stretch lining fabric like lawn, voile, satin, stretch lining fabrics
  • “Fabric Six” 24" (wide) x 12" (deep) lightweight lining fabric for lining the sleeve petal ruffles, such as tulle non-stretch or stretch. This is an optional fabric and is for those seamstresses who don’t want to zig-zag or serge the main fashion fabric on the sleeve petal ruffles. You could also use your main fashion fabric to line the sleeve ruffles.
  • Matching or contrasting thread

Winners circle

I’ve only been able to make the hat and I was very leery as I had tried one before and it was a disaster. I must say this was very detailed and easy to understand the hat(s) have turned out beautiful. Thanks

Winner's Circle 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

My overall experience with this pattern, as with the other Pixie Faire patterns, is that I have to adjust the size. The patterns are just a little small. My doll is a my Life doll. She is a product of Madame Alexander doll co. She is just over 18 inches but not exactly 19 inches. She is a a little broader that\n the 19 inch patterns from your website. The pattern itself is easy to follow and it goes together well. When it is finished I will post a photo. Thank you for being there. Lee Wilson

Awesome and easy

The more I use your patterns the easier they get. It could be that I am getting better at sewing but the directions are super easy to follow and the outcome is amazing.
