I love to see childhood dolls being gifted down the generations but quite often they are in desperate need of a new wardrobe. Lee-Ann has been busy sewing for her original Cabbage Patch Kids dolls that she has just handed down to her twin girls. I’m sure these dolls will enjoy playing with their new mummies and the big Mummy will enjoy watching her babies being looked after by her new babies.
Hi Rosie, I bought your Dresses Pattern Bundle for Cabbage Patch Kids recently to make clothes for my two original Cabbage Patch Kids which I gifted to my twin girls who just turned 4 this past week. I found that your video tutorial was most helpful in explaining the shoulder and side seam sewing. I`ve attached a photo of four dresses I made (in two weeks working AFTER bedtimes…) from your summer dress pattern and pinafore. I also made a fancy long 50s dress in blue satin but haven`t taken a photo yet.
Thanks for providing such a great resource that`s easy to sew!!
I’m super excited to announce that the Winter Nightie pattern is now available in the 18 1/2 inch Cabbage Patch Doll size. WoooHooo!
This 18 ½ Inch Cabbage Patch Winter Nightie pattern has options to make it with or without a ruffle and the choice of long or short sleeves so it’s not JUST a winter nightie BUT it can be a summer nightie too! And if you choose your fabric wisely, it can be made into a stylish winter outfit or a cool summer dress.Read More
Every doll needs a nightie and although my Summer Nightie pattern is super cute, it’s just not warm enough for those cold winter nights. So I’m thrilled to now have a beautiful Winter Nightie doll clothes pattern available for the 18 inch and American Girl dolls.
This Winter Nightie pattern is more than ‘just a nightie’! The options with this pattern make it super versatile – Make it short or add a ruffle around the hem to add extra warmth and cuteness, make it with long sleeves just like in the photo to the right or use the short sleeve option to create a nightie suitable for summer.Read More

Happy New Year everyone. I had such a wonderful holiday and met some really lovely people in South East Asia and if you would like to see photos from this holiday, I have shared some on my Facebook Page. I guess this is why it’s taking me a little while to get back into the swing of things. So I’ve decided to take a break from answering emails and write this blog.
I can’t believe how behind I am with sharing your gorgeous customer photos and comments, as you can see from my first photo, it’s from October last year!
Jean’s granddaughter received a cool Halloween surprise last year….
‘My Granddaughter holding her American Girl Doll wearing the pumpkin costume I made to surprise her for Halloween. Hadn’t sewn in 3 years. Your video explained every step slowly, patiently and clearly. It was so easy and quick to make and all the little tips and suggestions helped speed things up. Love this course and now ready to start sewing more clothes. Thank you so much. Jean’
What a cute photo, I wonder if Jean’s granddaughter got extra sweets for her pumpkin friend?Read More
Well, it’s that time of the year again when I sit back and wonder where the year has gone and let out an enormous sigh as the doll clothes orders finally start to slow. Yes, as usual I didn’t get as many patterns released this year as I would have hoped and I still haven’t managed to arrange a Christmas holiday in the snow. But I guess that just means that I have some great ideas for pattern releases in 2016 and I still have a ‘White Christmas’ to look forward to (happy face).
We have some exciting plans that we have been working on behind the scenes to make the Rosie’s Doll Clothes Patterns website even better in 2016 so hopefully my hubby will have some time off early in the new year to be able to implement them. I can’t wait to share this with you all.
Because we will be cycling around Vietnam, staying in villages and sailing around in a tiny Junk boat with only intermittent access to the internet I will not be able to reply to emails received until we get home. I do hope that you understand. I also hope that my beautiful Bella (the family border collie, or Boodolf as we like to call her at Christmas time) will understand that having someone different move into ‘her’ house while we are away is better than her moving to the kennel.Read More
A few years ago I did a blog on how I used my Funky Fur doll clothes pattern to make a Santa suit for my daughter’s 18 American Girl doll and I remember it being so much fun for both myself (while making it) and my daughter (playing with it) that I thought with Christmas just around the corner, I should publish it again for everyone that missed it the first time. ‘Sew’ enjoy!
I was looking in my fabric stash the other day and came across some lovely bright red velvety fabric and some white panne velvet with silver stars and I swear I could hear them shouting ‘Christmas’ at me. At this time of year, anything that is red and white conjures up images of Santa and lots of presents so I decided to have some fun with this fabric.Read More
Sewing Machine Manuals are very important to have because if you have a function on your machine that you don’t know how to use or something is not working properly, checking your manual usually gets you sorted out and sewing again without having to drag your machine off to the service store for assistance. There was a time there that I had to get my manual out every time I did a blind hem just because I couldn’t remember which way to fold the fabric but I’ve taken up so many hems now, I think I could do it blindfolded! I also get my serger manual out whenever I oil my serger because there are so many spots I need to put the oil that I don’t want to forget one.
But what do you do if you have misplaced your manual or bought a used machine without the manual?Read More
