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

Suede Jacket, Knit Beanie, Long Striped Scarf and garter Stitch Mittens

Another new fashion today is the jacket made from a suede-look fabric that has a fleecy type of backing. This jacket has unusual, but easy, construction techniques. The two seam allowances are placed over each other so that both suede sides of the fabric face up and overlap each other. This way the fleece side is seen at every seam line. Since no hems or seam finishes are needed, the collar does not have to be lined and the hemline is simply cut straight. The jacket closes with rectangular beads used as toggle buttons. The doll wears a trendy knitted hat called a "beanie." Mittens and a striped scarf will keep her warm and cozy. She wears these with the same double-knit pants seen with the lavender zippered-front sweater. (The knitted patterns are designed by Lauri Cushing.)

The model is a Gotz 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, Gotz Dolls® (non-designer) and many others. The pattern was actually designed to fit The American Girls Collection® and Gotz 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.
