Denim jumpers are very popular, especially those with straps and buckles like overalls. Jumpers can be embellished many different ways. One fun method is to embroider the front bib with your favorite designs. This denim jumper has a machine-embroidered design, but you can embroider by hand or purchase an embroidered appliqué. The hemline has braided trim at the bottom with decorative machine stitches above it. Joan chose to incorporate bobbin work, which is a heavy decorative thread that cannot fit through the eye of the needle, but is placed in the bobbin. It is not placed in the bobbin tension so that the thread will curl on the fabric. Since the threads are thick, the design is more prominent. Children love to use decorative stitches, and this denim jumper makes them easy to use.

The most common t-shirt is the short-sleeve version. This t-shirt can also have embroidery worked on the front or around the neckline just below the seam. This t-shirt provides a perfect opportunity for children to learn simple embroidery stitches, such as a circle of lazy daisies to make a flower.

The denim jumper and t-shirt fit 18-inch vinyl dolls (those with vinyl head, arms and legs and a cloth stuffed body) such as The American Girls Collection® by the Pleasant Company, Götz Dolls® (non-designer) and many others. The denim jumper and t-shirt are actually designed to fit The American Girls Collection® and Götz Dolls® (non-designer) loosely to allow for individual differences in the stuffing of the dolls. They will also fit the following dolls: Dress Me Doll© by The Martha Pullen Company, Faithful Friends Collection®, Liberty Landing®, Girls on the Go®, Savannah of Storybook Heirlooms™, Laura Ashley®, Collector's Lane®, Creative Doll Company®, Springfield Collection®, Sophia's Heritage Collection®, Autumn Harvest™, Our Generation™, Tolly Girl® and miscellaneous composition and porcelain dolls. Since some dolls, such as Liberty Landing®, Autumn Harvest™ and Our Generation™, are a little thinner, you may want to check the size of your doll and adjust the denim jumper and t-shirt slightly for a better fit.

One of the things that is so fun when working with this pattern book is just the fact that none of the sewing patterns uses very much fabric. You can get out all those scraps of materials you have been saving for years, perhaps for quilts that will never get made, and start using the material. Also, I know many sewers who love to scour the fabric stores looking at the bargain little pieces of material that are left-over when all the fabric is sold off a bolt. These pieces of material are often marked down significantly making the doll clothes you sew a true bargain.

Also, the sewing patterns are fun because they use such a variety of materials. You will have an opportunity to work with denim, flannel, fleece, stretchy knit cotton for t-shirts, dressy satins and prom fabrics and more. If you are teaching children to sew, you can spend hours in the fabric stores picking out fun materials to sew with. But often the sewing notions can be found in your sewing stash left-over from some previous project so the cost can be kept down.

Infinite Freedom

My prayer is for a world so safe and abundant...
where all who love to sew are free to sew...
where all have the resources they need to sew...
and no strife or war can touch anyone who wants to sew.
