More About Helen In Her Own Words: "When I was a child, my family didn't really need to ask what gift I wanted. There was one answer: "A doll." I grew up but I still have so much love in my heart for dolls.
Both of my grannies loved sewing. I began to sew at the age of eight by hand for my baby dolls. My mother taught me to knit. When I turned fifteen I started to sew and knit clothes for myself.
Designing for dolls started for me when my daughter went to school. I was looking for something to do, and my search led to discovering a whole world of dolls and doll fashion.
Now I'm glad to be a part of the aleksandrajones team and engage in my favourite hobbies!"
More About Each Pattern:
Flutter Sleeve Top Designed To Fit 18" Dolls Such As American Girl®: Sew this top for your doll, and she will flutter like a butterfly! You can finish the flutter sleeve edges with a rolled hem or leave raw edge finishes as in the photo. The top can be sewn from one fabric or you can select another fabric companion for the flutter sleeves to your liking.
Romper Designed to Fit 15" Dolls Such As Bitty Baby®: These super sweet rompers are both made from knit fabric to ensure your little doll stays cool and comfy all day long.
The romper has two parts: top and bottom. The top part is a T-shirt, while the bottom part is pants without center front and side seams. All hems and neckline are finished with ribbing bindings. All gathering seams are stabilized with clear elastic tape.
This romper pattern has 2 options:
Option 1: A Romper for girls with sleeve frills and waist ruffle. This option has an applique on top front panel (step by step instruction is included).
Option 2: A Romper for boys with 3 buttons on Bodice Front panel.
Pajama Top Designed to Fit 19" Gotz® Dolls: Do you like to sew? I'm sure you have tons of fabric scraps. Making this top will help reduce your supplies! For this Pajama top you'll need printed knit fabric, and different solid-colored fabrics for the bottom panel and pocket. The fabric choice will determine what you`ll sew: a pajama top or cute long-sleeve top, for a girl or boy. I chose a cute fabric for pajamas, because my favorite doll likes to hide a candy in her pocket when she goes to bed! If your doll also likes secrets, be sure to sew such pajama top for her.
Leggings Designed To Fit 19 Inch Gotz® Happy Kidz Dolls: Pairs of leggings are essential to any doll’s wardrobe, as they are so very versatile. Your doll can wear leggings under skirts, dresses and shorts or pair them with a tunic or sweatshirt. There are so many cool options you can create.
Sewing will not be difficult, even if you are beginner seamstress. Step-by-step instructions help you along the way.
