Darling sailor dress or jumpsuit for your American Girl doll's wardrobe.
Carol Clements designed doll clothes for the 18 inch doll, in particular the American Girl dolls, during the 1990's. Her designs were also frequently seen in Creative Needle Magazine during that time. Her patterns have not been commercially available for over 10 years but Carol is a friend and she has agreed to allow me to sell them.
These are beautifully drafted patterns with excellent instructions.
I love this quote from Carol found in one of her patterns. "As all 3 of my children grow up, I have discovered the reason I now enjoy sewing for dolls more than ever. The dolls never outgrow a need for "fancy clothes". or, for that matter outgrow the garment by the time it's finished. Dolls never spill anything on their clothes, rip out the knee or the hem and they never complain of any discomfort. Best of all they almost never refuse to wear it after its finished"
If this pattern shows as sold out please email me (link on the right). I only keep 1 or 2 in stock at any time to keep costs down but I can print more at any time.
Check my store for other patterns by this designer.
I ship within 1-2 business days using USPS 1st class shipping whenever possible.
When I find that the shipping charged was higher than necessary I will refund the overage.
Damaged items can always be returned.
Regrettably cut fabric under 4 yards can not be returned because it is difficult to resell once removed from the bolt.
When items are returned the postage will be paid by the buyer. Refund will be for the cost of the item only.
