What another amazing year we’ve had and there have been some absolutely wonderful doll clothes created by all you super talented sewers. This is my final Share and Tell blog for 2019 and we’re starting off with this lovely email from Sheena.
‘My Auntie Marilynn has made some beautiful doll clothes for my daughter’s cabbage patch doll from the patterns on your site and I’ve been meaning to pass along the pictures of her work. The clothes are absolutely incredible and fit better than the ones she came with. Here are some of the photos of our very fashionable doll, Ginger!’
Oh I totally agree, Ginger looks very fashionable in all her new clothes. Auntie Marilynn has done a beautiful job making them and also choosing just the right colour fabric to compliment that gorgeous hair too! Patterns used include T-Shirt, Long Pants from the Winter Pyjamas, Overalls, Drop Waist Dress, Fur Trimmed Jacket and the Free Beanie pattern.
And this is a beautiful email from Marilynn, who I’m sure is now this little girl’s favourite Auntie!
‘Hi Rosie. My niece emailed me asking if I knew where she could buy clothes for her 3 year-old daughter’s cabbage patch doll. I said, “Do I”. Then I immediately went to your website and bought patterns for the cabbage patch doll. I made several outfits for the doll and when my niece and her daughter came this weekend I got the biggest hug from the little girl. She wanted to see how they were made so I took her to my sewing room and showed her the patterns, the fabric and the sewing machine. Her big brown eyes took in everything. Then my niece told me that these clothes that I made fit better than the clothes that came with the doll. That’s when I thought, “Thank you, Rosie.” Your patterns made the cutest little girl so happy.
So glad I could help Marilynn.
The next photo is from Nancy who has made a stunning bride using my Wedding Dress pattern. I’m loving the addition of the little daisies onto the skirt, as well as the lace overlay, the gorgeous bouquet and the fabulous veil…..I just love it all!
I have thoroughly enjoyed making this outfit. She also has the petticoat, satin and lace panties, a lace garter and white satin shoes. Your patterns and videos are so easy to work with and your e-mails are answered so quickly when questions arise. Thank you
Now it’s time for some fun with this cool Witch. Lachapelle did a great job making this costume and creating a wonderful Halloween scene.
‘Hi, I bought many, many patterns from you and, for the first time, I would like to show you one of these.
I wonder just how many doll witches there were out an about on Halloween this year?
A short time ago I did a blog explaining which of my patterns can be used to make boy doll clothes and Ruth has come up with another option.
‘Here is Fraser in his completed outfit, looking very pleased to be going to the Christmas ball! All made using Rosie’s Winter Pyjama pattern and techniques learned from Rosie’s amazing videos! I will show how I altered the pyjama top to make the waistcoat in the thread below.’
Ruth goes on to include instructions on altering the Winter Pyjama Top pattern to make the vest and includes a photo of the alterations.
Ruth is a very active member of my Facebook Group and along with others, provides lots of inspiration for our members.

How stunning is this! Debra, another member of my Facebook group has done an amazing job to create this gorgeous ball gown using my Wedding Dress pattern.
‘My first successful lace overlay, I took all the advice offered about working with satin. The wedding dress pattern no alterations at all.’
Look how easy it is to change the look of a pattern by changing the fabric used. My popular wedding dress pattern has become a stunning ball gown just like that!
Thanks to everyone who sent me photos and shared your sewing journeys with me. This sharing is the best way to inspire others in the doll clothes sewing world to continue on their sewing journey. Keep the photos and stories coming in and I’ll be back with more Share and Tell blogs in 2020.
