Little Penny Sewing Pattern, for your making hands.
It is here! I have been telling all my workshop gals that I would have a pattern to fit their dolls, somewhere in September and here it is. The Little Penny sewing pattern is now ready for your making hands.
The Little Penny Doll Clothing sewing pattern consists of a set of clothes for your sweet doll. You will be sewing a set of overalls with over-sized knee patches and a shirt with lovely sport collar and cuffs.
The knee patches are lined, the overalls have ribbing cuffs - so there is no nasty wind sneaking on the legs come the colder months; the sweet straps close with handmade button loops and this set is so cute to sew you will be making it in all four sizes, I swear.
The shirt is made with cotton pointelle, and closes on back with sewn-in snaps. It opens fully on the back like all my patterns, so that little hands (or older hands) can dress dolls without much sorrow.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s Love Letter, this set is named after my sweet Penny. She is the doll that was designed to bravely teach workshops this year and in a few months she has encouraged so many dollmakers to put their best foot forward and create dolls after her fashion.
She worked tirelessly, all Spring and Summer, and was now ready to welcome more proper clothes for the coming seasons. If I have my way (and I normally do), this will not be the last set of clothing inspired by her (or named after her).
Wait until I show you how sweet she looks in the Baby Layette Knitting e-book pieces! With no mods, she looks quite pleased, but with a few strategic couple more rows in the right places, she looks right at home. More on that later this week.
Thank you so, so much for choosing to make doll clothes with my patterns. It always makes my day when I see something you make with something I designed.
I will be back in a few days to show you how she looks in the knitted pieces, as well as show you two quiet (but as usual full of mischief) little boys, who are very excited to find a home of their very own.
Happy sewing friends!
