    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family, Rosie. I have loved all of my patterns that I have received from you and will now start to replenish my stocks as well. Almost everything is sold so I will start fresh in the spring when I am back at my machines.
    Best wishes to everyone who reads your blog as well.

    • That’s awesome news Peggy, I’m so glad you had great success selling your doll clothes. Sounds like your sewing machine will be running hot in the spring! Merry Christmas :)

    What an amazing lady you are. I am so pleased I found your web site. My two granddaughters are going to be so surprised when they open their presents from nana and poppa. I have been busy sewing your wonderful patterns.
    There are 18 outfits in total for two American girl dolls
    I have made matching school uniforms complete with your hat using your pattern
    You have a merry Christmas with your family and I look forward to many hours of sewing in 2015

    • Sounds like you have been very busy Barbara and I’m sure your granddaughters are going to love their presents from Nana and Poppa. I’d love to see photos if you get the chance to send them in. Merry Christmas :)

  4. I think you have been remarkably productive. Thanks for all the wonderful videos. I’ve enjoyed them so much.

    Rosie,
    I am new to your website, and like the tips you have given me, but I have yet to make a doll outfit. For some reason I am over whelmed trying to pick patterns, fabric, and getting started. I haven’t sewn for about forty years. LOL But, hopefully I will get my confidence up soon.
    Thanks for the greetings, Rosie. I wish you a Merry Christmas as well.

    • Hi Judy, It sounds like you would benefit from doing my ‘How to Make Doll Clothes’ video course as it covers all the basics of sewing as well as tips that make sewing doll clothes easier. Everything is broken down into small videos and I take you through things slowly and thoroughly. Many of my customers have been in a similar situation as you and after doing my course are sewing confidently again and enjoying sewing doll clothes for their grandchildren. I’d love to help you on this journey in any way I can so I’d love to see you try my course and let me know how you go. Happy sewing, Rosie :)

    I am looking for a pattern for a groom’s vest, shirt and pants. Will you be making these in the very near future? I am to make a wedding dress and groom’s outfit to fit a 20 inch teddy bear. I can make the cabbage patch outfit bigger if I need to. I would appreciate an answer when you have time. Thank you.

    • Hi Patricia,
      You will find that my Cabbage Patch Winter Pyjama pattern would be suitable for the shirt and pants, then you would just need to make a vest. You could use the pyjama top front and back as the template to draft from – shorten the length, and draw down from the shoulder on the front to make the shape that you want for the vest. You can then either just fold in a hem all the way around, you could cut two back and four front pieces and fully line the vest, or just line the front.

      I hope this is helpful and I would love to know how you get on. Happy sewing :)
