We’d love you to join in our monthly Sew-Along. This time our theme is “Happy Halloween”.
Your fun challenge is to have a good time with the idea of Halloween. Whether it’s a Halloween themed outfit to wear around in October, or Halloween accessories, or full Halloween costumes (whether scary, or fantasy, or pretty fairies or princesses, etc.) or anything in between, have a blast with any of Rosie’s patterns. You can use the patterns specifically designed for Halloween, or repurpose any of Rosie’s patterns for your Halloween themed creations.
Since Halloween is on October 31st, we’re giving a very special 31% discount on all costume patterns for the entire month of October 2022. Add as many of our costume patterns as you want to your shopping cart, and check out with the following code: HALLOWEEN2022

To participate in the Sew-Along, you must be a member of the Rosie’s Doll Clothes Patterns Sew and Share group. Joining is easy. Just point your browser here, answer the membership questions, and request to join. It’s a wonderful community of creative grown-ups who love to sew for dolls. Everyone will welcome you with open arms.
To be inclusive, absolutely anything and everything that you make with one of Rosie’s Doll Clothes Patterns can be entered in the Sew-Along for one chance to be chosen by the Spinning Wheel. Yes, that even includes the free Beanie or free Sewing Machine Pin Cushion! Remember that there’s a video for every Rosie’s pattern, so watch, learn, sew along, and have fun sewing and sharing.
You can use the 18 inch American Girl Doll or Cabbage Patch Kid size patterns, or you can resize those patterns to fit any doll. If you wish to alter the pattern to add your own personal twist or add a special embellishment, please feel free. These personal touches create great inspiration for others!
There’s no obligation to sew every month. You can sew one outfit or a dozen. It’s totally up to you. Each item from a Rosie’s pattern that you sew and post in the album (see instructions below) will be worth at least one entry towards the wheel spin at the end of the month. If you sew to the challenge specifications, you get two entries towards the wheel spin.
All skill levels are welcome to join in the fun as there will be no judgement, only encouragement.
Debra Sharon contributed this lovely outfit. Her American Girl doll is modeling her creation, which is the Drop Waist Dress and boots made from the 3 Way Shoe pattern. Debra said, “The frill is shortened by one and a half inches. I have used a faux leopard skin fabric which was quite soft and flexible.”
