December Update for Doll Clothes Designs

Another busy month for me designing and sewing and creating doll clothes patterns.

  • I updated the vest pattern and added a bonus pencil skirt.
  • I updated the classic knit tops by including a bonus leggings pattern.
  • I started the 50s Collection.

the turtleneck from 1801

The bonus blouse is very cute here with the
pleated skirt from my free patterns page.
Because the everyday price of my patterns is about 30% lower than others on the market I can't really offer lots of freebies or bundle discounts or sales and still make a fair payment for my time and expertise.
To make up for this I have decided to offer some bonus patterns with the patterns that you buy. For example, the blouse with 1827 uses the same basic size as my 1806 blouse pattern with a different collar and a different sleeve design. It didn't take me as long to design as if I had to design it from scratch so I am happy to include it with the dress pattern as a bonus.

I have also started making instructions for some free designs. Quite often free patterns are hand drawn or not tailored for the American Girl Doll. I plan to offer free designs with Pictorial Tutorials and vector drawn pattern pieces like my shop patterns because I like everything to look neat. I have done the gathered skirt and am working on tidying up the pleated skirt. I plan to include a belt pattern and an infinity scarf pattern soon.

Make sure you visit my Free Patterns page and my Pattern Shop page.

I offer a quality product at a discounted price and the feed back I am getting is very positive. I ask you to +1 this post to your Google Plus circles or share it on your facebook page to help others discover my patterns.

I would like to thank all my customers for spurring me on to create more designs and I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,
