More About Margie In Her Own Words: "I have always had a love of sewing and have been fascinated with manipulating fabric since being taught by my gran at around the age of 7. In more recent years, besides general sewing, I have made and taught quilting. My love of dolls was put on hold for many years until three years ago when I happened upon aleksandrajones’s site and fell in love with all the outfits and beautiful dolls. Living in South Africa, good quality dolls are not readily available, but a month after venturing into the doll world, my son surprised me with my beautiful AG Julie and with much encouragement from him, my late husband and awesome friends, I started designing dolls’ clothes. I have finally found my niche and love every minute of it."
More About Each Pattern:
Butterfly Kisses 18" Doll Clothes Pattern - This gorgeous high-waisted little dress in two lengths, has a ruffled scoop neckline, accent color on the shoulders and the hem ruffle, which comes up at the side, is finished with a bow. Appliquéd butterflies are placed randomly on the dress for extra pizazz. The Dress is made from Quilter’s Cotton, the Bodice is lined and closes with hook and loop tape in back. The skirt is cut as one piece and with clever fabric and pattern placement, the side split can be either on the left or right side of the dress. This is a great way to use up those tiny scraps – combine lightweight denim with lace; strong contrasts with bright vibrant colors; soft pastels with florals – anything goes. This easy PDF pattern is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
Edwardian Fall 18" Doll Clothes Pattern - This relatively easy PDF pattern offers a charming little outfit which is based on an Edwardian style for little girls.
