New Pattern for Australian Girl Dolls


I have been a bit quiet in social media for a while. I have just been playing in my sewing room. I like to promote and sell my patterns but that is only a side line. Designing and testing and playing with fabrics is the biggest part.

Today I have published my first Australian Girl Doll Pattern. I tailored the American Girl Doll gathered pull-ons pattern to fit the Australian Girl Doll more neatly than just enlarging the pattern.

The jeans have a very neat slim leg that looks great with the elasty sided riding boots. Here I have teamed them with the specially tailored open neck blouse soon to be published.


There are lots of possibilities. I have already started two more Fashion Files with more variations.
The Australian Girl Doll patterns all start with 20 for 20" doll. 50 is probably more correct for 50cm but I tend to sew in inches most of the time.

The pattern instructions are very similar to the 18" doll pattern instructions with a few changes to suit.

Landscape format for easy viewing on a tablet.


Vector drawn pattern pieces with a scaling square. I also include how to check the print percentage in Chapter 2.

There are book marks to make navigation easy in Acrobat Reader on PC or Mac. The portrait title page is perfect for the iBooks bookshelf.


I used Fashion File 4 and the pockets from 2012 (yet to be published) to make pouch pockets in the bell bottoms.


2013 Snugfit Mildred Gathered Pull-Ons is only on Etsy.
