With American Girl type dolls being extremely popular I thought I would gather up a few free sewing patterns that any girl would love. My daughter has a genetic 18 inch doll from Target and I was planning on making her some new clothes from Santa this year. Funny thing is I am scared to my these clothes even though I make rag dolls as small as 13 inch, so I am not sure why I am intimidated by them. With that being said I am going to over come my fear and get to work with free patterns before buying any.
Side Note: as I was search for free patterns I notice MANY said free but weren’t or had no way to download them. I tried really hard to avoid that, so neither of us had to search for them again when we needed them.
Super Simple Jumper – this looks easy to make and to even add some extra pretties to it. To print Right click over the photo can save it, then print (make sure the squares print 1 inch by 1 inch so it will fit right).
Super Cute Undies – What doll doesn’t need undies or bikini bottoms. Click on the link to get the pattern to print it. More information is on this blog post.
Doll Cardigan – This one is from one of my favorite blogs for sewing, looks like it could be a little difficult but it is super cute none the less. I will try it with some scraps first.
Upcycled Skirts – This looks great and it’s upcycling (my favorite thing). The direction are on the blog post here and there are lot of photos to follow a long.
