Sewing Pattern Book "Sew Today's Fashions For 18-Inch Dolls" - $22.99

Varsity Jacket and Khaki Embroidered

Varsity jackets are always seen at school. This American Girl Doll® wears a soft plum-colored jacket with embroidered khaki jeans. The jacket is made from cotton flannel with matching suede-look fabric sleeves instead of the traditional wool and leather. Other fabric choices could be any medium-weight soft fabric and faux leather or suede for the sleeves. This jacket has coordinating colors, but try contrasting colors for a traditional look. Doll-sized snaps and an embroidered name add a realistic touch to the front of the jacket. The jeans are made from a khaki twill fabric that was embroidered before it was cut. Look for small embroidery designs for doll clothing, especially designs that can be separated into parts, so the whole design does not have to be used.

The model is an American Girl Doll®

This sewing pattern fits 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 pattern was 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. It will also fit the following dolls: Dress Me Doll© from The Martha Pullen Company, Tolly Girl®, 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™ and Our Generation™ and miscellaneous composition and porcelain dolls. Since some dolls, such as Liberty Landing®, Tolly Girl®, Autumn Harvest™ and Our Generation™, are a little thinner, you may want to check the size of your doll and adjust the pattern slightly for a better fit.

This doll sewing pattern book features contemporary clothing that works beautifully with the Just Like You American Girl Dolls®. While Joan Hinds was designing the sewing patterns for this book, she put together a group of young girls as her "guidance team" and met with them regularly to discuss her ideas for sewing patterns. The team gave her feedback on which of the outfits they would like to have sewn for their dolls. Joan discovered that the girls were most excited about the clothing styles that was popular with the age group slightly older than themselves, namely those in middle school. If you think about sewing designs so that your American Girl doll would be fashionable in middle school, you cannot miss. The sewing patterns in this book really hit the mark. You could take your child and her doll to the American Girl Place and be right in style with doll clothing personally designed and sewn by you and your child.

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.
