When I was a little girl, I liked to play with dolls.
One of my fondest memories is looking through the Sears catalog each December, circling all of the doll clothes and accessories that would make my dolls’ wardrobes complete. I don’t recall receiving any of those items that I wished for, but several times my mom and sister surprised me with handmade doll clothes. My mom did the sewing, while my oldest sister did the knitting. Those doll clothes, stitched with love, were among my favorite Christmas gifts ever.
In December 2013 when my sister asked me to sew up an outfit for her granddaughter’s American Girl doll, I rediscovered the magic of beautiful doll clothes and accessories. I was hooked and couldn’t wait to sew more outfits for dolls.
Naturally, I just had to buy myself a new doll! After all, somebody was going to have to model the new clothes I was going to make. I chose a Madame Alexander doll, whom I named Flavia (after one of my favorite mystery heroines), and she is just beautiful!
In my search for patterns to use for making doll clothes, I happened upon The Liberty Jane Company and Pixie Faire, their website for doll clothes patterns. I fell in love with their contemporary styles and easy to use patterns.
Adding handmade doll clothes to my custom sewing business has been a fun venture for me. My goal is to provide American made doll clothing and accessories that will last for years to come. I have chosen contemporary styles and high quality fabrics and trims to bring your girls the doll fashions of their dreams. These are not your Grandma’s doll clothes!
