Two-Tone Pocket Tee Update!



, ,

I’ve noticed several visitors looking @ Terrie’s Two-Tone Pocket Tee, so wanted to let you know that she’s added it to her Etsy Store, so please stop by and grab it!  I just realized it wasn’t posted and it’s such a sweet pattern!  Also, check out my Hot August post here, as that pattern is also now available and Terrie will likely add more as time allows.

I’m a bit prejudiced since I did pattern testing for Terrie, but her patterns are truly AMAZING and reasonably priced.

IF you see any of Terrie’s patterns featured here (or anywhere) that aren’t on her Etsy Store, please let me know in a comment & she’ll happily add them.  FYI:  If you click on All Dolled Up @ the far left of any page here, it will bring up all posts I’ve made using Terrie’s patterns and @ the bottom of the page, it will take you to even more.  ;’)

Bianca Dress to Beat AZ Heat


, , , , , ,

Using my Janome 9900’s embroidery function, I created a small fringed flower that came with my machine.  I specifically chose yellow and silver threads to coordinate with the flowered print in yellow/gray from my fabric stash.


The bodice of the Bianca pattern from Violette Field Threads is the perfect showcase for this sweet little flower.  Kit’s sure to look fresh and cool in her new summer sundress here in AZ’s desert heat.

Sundress Bonus Pattern


, , , , ,

Me&MyDoll_FInalChalEntry_20200602_123805Erin Hentzel shared this Bonus Sundress pattern with everyone taking part in her FB Avery Lane Sewing private sewing group’s challenge for Me & My Doll 18″ Doll, which just concluded.

I used a tiny-flowered fabric for my outer layer I’d been hoarding for far too long.  It actually contains tiny non-shedding bits of glitter, but my camera didn’t pick that up very well.

Besides the gathered top/waist/bottom edge, velvet ribbon and cotton lace edgings, the straps lace through two loops @ the back for a final unique finish on this sweet sundress.Me&MyDoll_BACK_BonusSundress_20200602_163333

Out & About Shorts by Kristin Wilson Designs

I had the chance to pattern test this cute shorts pattern for a brand-new doll clothes designer, Kristin Wilson.  This pattern boasts 2 waistband options (gathered or yoga) and 3 hem options (hemmed, cuffed or gathered) and is now available on her Etsy store: KristinWilsonDesigns.

In addition, Kristin has designed several different mix/match fabrics for doll clothes now available @ Spoonflower:

With all of us ‘stuck @ home’ now,  go check out Kristin’s pattern and sew up several for your doll’s summer wear using  the many options available!

Me & My 18″ Doll “Stay Home & Sew Challenge” Entry #1: Patchwork & Linen Pinafore


, , , , , , , ,

LinenPinafore_20191117_120115I actually finished Erin’s Patchwork and Linen Pinafore back in November and posted a pic on Instagram, but never finished a blog post, so. . . it’s about time!  This was just such a fun sew, as I’d never done anything with 2 1/2″ quilting squares. I serged mine together, but wish I’d also top-stitched each square as well.

Erin’s having another sew-along through April 24th on her Facebook Group Page: Avery Lane Patterns Sewing Group.  You’ll need to join her private group, purchase your own copy (actual book or Ebook) of Me & My 18″ Doll and follow all instructions given in her Announcement of March 12th to be eligible for PRIZES awarded by random drawing.  Those are listed in the announcement, but again the grand prize is a gift certificate for an AG doll!  It’s a great group of ladies, so you’ll definitely have fun.  Erin’s also giving a discount on her individual patterns for those who are sewing masks.  I have most of her patterns & ALL her books — you’ll love them!

I’m not sure how much I’ll share this time, as I’m hoping to amass a large stash of doll clothes for my first-ever craft sale – IF weather and this virus scare ever allows?!


Valentine’s Day Dress


, , , ,

After a recent break from sewing/posting here, I decided I’d stitch up my favorite doll dress, the Tuxedo Twirl design, from Doll Dress Boutique.


This heart print glitter fabric has been in my stash for years, so it worked up well for Valentine’s Day.  Since I also had heart-shaped buttons in 3 colors, they worked well with the bodice trim, a fav Walmart item I use often when sewing doll clothes.  Hope your Valentine’s Day is sweet!

I love Terrie’s patterns!  Several I’ve sewn are posted here (see tag: All Dolled Up), so this is a fabulous chance to get your very own.  Her patterns are very reasonable when NOT on sale, so now they’re beyond reasonable!
