Hi everyone,

On Friday (November 30th) we are offering a free doll clothes pattern from designer Craig Sharp of Sharp Dressed Dolls. Be sure to vote now and return on Friday to get your free copy!

More About Craig In His Own Words: "I currently live in a pastoral community in southern Tennessee. My mother worked in the garment industry and my father worked as a sewing machine mechanic, one could say sewing is in my blood. My first job at the age of 16 was working in the cutting room of a garment manufacturing company. Growing up my mother made most of my and my brother’s suites.  She encouraged my love of textiles and couture finished garments. I begin sewing for children when my youngest niece, Hailey was born. I always made her coordinating church dolls to go with the outfits that I designed for her.  Soon, I submitted me first pattern to Sew Beautiful Magazine, an international periodical. Since that time many of my designs and editorials have been featured in Martha Pullen’s magazines and heirloom doll clothing books.  I have taught doll fashion and heirloom sewing at many fabric shops and clubs around the middle Tennessee area."

Vote Now For The Freebie Friday Pattern:

More About Each Pattern:

The Gloria Dress Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®:  The Gloria Dress is the fourth pattern in a series of seven in the Tribute Collection.

The chevron sleeve may be lengthened or shortened if you choose. The dress has two skirt styles: a straight hem and a shaped chevron hem in three different skirt lengths: short, knee and tea. The dress is designed to fit somewhat loosely on 18" dolls such as American Girl®, and is closed with a button-up back. Snaps and mock buttons may be used as an alternative to buttonholes for easy dressing and undressing.

Also included is a unique kanzashi bow and sash pattern and instructions to complement this wonderful design. By combining the different pattern pieces this pattern offers up to fifty-four unique style possibilities. The dress requires some hand finishing to achieve a couture finish.

The Mary Dress Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®:   Mary is a double-breasted waistline dress with two distantly different looks. The diamond dress has a diamond shaped cutout back, sleeve and hem. The lattice work dress has a rectangle cut out with lattice shaping in the cutout The sleeves of the tulip sleeves are joined at the hem with a V shape to accent the lattice shaped hem.
