We’d love you to join in our monthly Sew-Along. This time our theme is “Back to School and Other Uniforms”. August is a back to school time for a lot of places, and lots of schools have uniforms. We thought we’d open it up to all kinds of uniforms just to give it more variety.
Your fun challenge is to take any Rosie’s Doll Clothes Pattern and turn it into a school uniform, or a uniform of any kind. As inspiration, consider everything from police and military uniforms, to your favorite team, to medical personnel, science fiction characters, etc. Have fun with it! Anyone who makes any kind of uniform will get **TWO** entries, as long as you tell us what kind of uniform it is, and how you accomplished creating your project. Other garments get one entry.

To participate in the Sew-Along, you must be a member of the Rosie’s Doll Clothes Patterns Sew and Share group. Joining is easy. Just point your browser here, answer the membership questions, and request to join. It’s a wonderful community of creative grown-ups who love to sew for dolls. Everyone will welcome you with open arms.
To be inclusive, absolutely anything and everything that you make with one of Rosie’s Doll Clothes Patterns can be entered in the Sew-Along for one chance to be chosen by the Spinning Wheel. Yes, that even includes the free Beanie or free Sewing Machine Pin Cushion! Remember that there’s a video for every Rosie’s pattern, so watch, learn, sew along, and have fun sewing and sharing.
You can use the 18 inch American Girl Doll or Cabbage Patch Kid size patterns, or you can resize those patterns to fit any doll. If you wish to alter the pattern to add your own personal twist or add a special embellishment, please feel free. These personal touches create great inspiration for others!
There’s no obligation to sew every month. You can sew one outfit or a dozen. It’s totally up to you. Each item from a Rosie’s pattern that you sew and post in the album (see instructions below) will be worth at least one entry towards the wheel spin at the end of the month.
All skill levels are welcome to join in the fun as there will be no judgement, only encouragement.
The winner of the July ’22 Sew-Along Wheel Spin is Debra Sharon, who created this outfit. Debra used Rosie’s Wedding Dress pattern in a pinwale cord. She modified the sleeve hem shape to create a point.
