Free Doll Clothes Pattern (March 16th, 2018) Help Us Spread The Word

Hi everyone,

On Friday (March 16th) we are highlighting the work of Heidi Mittiga, creator of the Flossie Potter Patterns collection, by offering her brand new Ladies' Club Jacket pattern for free on the first day of its release. This stylish jacket for 18-inch dolls is part of her new Ladies' Club 1950's inspired pattern collection.  This new pattern will be free one-day-only and then it will return to the regular price.

More About Heidi Mittiga and Flossie Potter Patterns, (in her own words): 
"Hello, fellow doll clothes sewing enthusiasts! I’m Heidi Mittiga of Flossie Potter Patterns, and I’d like to say that it’s been such a pleasure to design for you over the years. My tagline, “Yesterday & Today,” describes the type of patterns I love to create: Historical and Modern outfits and accessories, both for sewing and for knitting.

As my way of saying thank you for your loyalty, I’d like to offer you the Ladies Club Jacket pattern FREE FOR ONE DAY ONLY! This jacket is a special part of my new Ladies’ Club Collection from the 1950s era.

 I'm so excited about all the pieces being introduced this week! This new collection is made up of 3 individual patterns that all coordinate together. I hope you'll take a look at the other patterns as well:

You can also pair the collection with my 1950s Pocketbook for an authentic look!

Please visit the Flossie Potter Patterns page on the aleksandrajones website to discover my other designs!

Happy Sewing!

Heidi

More About The Ladies' Club Jacket Pattern: The LADIES' CLUB JACKET is the second pattern in Flossie Potter's Ladies' Club Collection. This stylish fully-lined jacket features 3/4-length sleeves, reminiscent of the 1950s. A large decorative button serves as the focal point at the top of the diagonal cross-front edges.

Take a look at the pattern

I just finished making this cute Ladies’ Club jacket using some scrap muslin. Just a little challenging on getting the lining sewn to the main fabric, but I worked it out and can wait to make more. The instructions do say “intermediate” level. The next one will be very easy for me. So quick to make once you know what to do. There are no problems with the instructions – clearly written and plenty of photos.

I admire the way you have accessorized and created a complete look turning a little girl doll into a lady. The modified victory roll is very becoming, of course fashion returns to us!

Thank you, Heidi, for sharing your beautiful patterns with us. The jacket reminds me so much of my mother, who wore a similar jacket, dress, pillbox hat and pearl necklace for my sister’s wedding, What a lovely memory, and what a lovely pattern!

Since I was born in the 50"s, I love seeing patterns from that decade. My sister —15 yrs older than me, would have been wearing the ladies attire. I love seeing what she would have worn.
Thank-you

Heidi very nice pattern, thank you! This nice jacket can be worn with anything, it is so versatile. Having a lining makes it easier to sew and one button, you can’t go wrong with that! This can be made with so many different fabrics and colors. It will even look great in a print. I love how the jewelry is so visible and looks just right with the jacket. I think it could possibly made reversible, then it would be 2 for 1! Thank you,marie

Thankyou so much for sharing your pattern with us. Turns out, I have over half of your collection on my wish list. Your sisters dress pattern is one of my.favorites, but theclub dress and several of the dresses from.that era, are perfect for my grand daughters dolls. Several I.will purchase for my own collection, as I love vintage. But, they are asking for raggedy ann, and the betsy ross with the flag, they love the hemed clothing. So again thankyou, I.will look forward to making the jacket and purchasing many of your patterns in the near future.

Thank you Heidi! I love this sweet little ensemble. It reminds me of dressing for church when I was a little girl. Why, we wouldn’t have even considered going to church without our hat, purse and gloves. Now I want to buy the rest of the ensemble ASAP! :) I have several of your patterns already and they are all excellent! Thanks again and God bless.
