Do you love to sew doll clothes? There’s an adorable new book available from doll clothes expert Anna Allen, owner and author of the popular website Doll it Up! My Doll, My Style features a stylish collection of small-scale clothes designed for an 18-inch doll. With more than a dozen designs and accessories ranging from fancy to casual, you’ll be ready to sew a complete wardrobe of fun and fashionable clothes for your doll.
“I’ve woven fashion throughout the pages of this book for you to combine projects and confidently create doll fashion,” Anna writes in the book’s introduction. “Fashion is foremost in these doll clothes patterns and accessories because they were created with a modern aesthetic and fit.”
Great for all skill levels, the book also includes information on sewing basics as well as tips for using contemporary fabrics including metallic transfers, sewing with knits and more.
Here’s a closer look at a few of the darling patterns you’ll find inside the book:
Flutter Sleeve Top: This summery dress features ruffled sleeves, an option for a lace overlay on the front bodice, and a ruffle on the skirt.
Swim Sarong: This light and breezy sarong pairs nicely with the fringe swimsuit. There is a simple tie in the front that is functional and adorable. Add pom-pom trim to the edge of the sarong for extra fun and details.
Heart Top: This shirt features a hi-low hemline and a connected sleeve. It is an over-the-head style with no Velcro closures, making it a quick sew. Also included is a heart appliqué for a fun look. The heart is an easy embellishment to add: simply iron, then stitch in place.
