Vintage sewing patterns for toys and doll’s clothes.
As part of my vintage pattern ‘sort out’ I am sharing my finds, ie patterns I forgot I had!
Five very sweet vintage sewing patterns that are for sewing toys or doll’s clothes:
..and this one too same date 1975: very Laura Ashley era?
This one is from 1978: I am loving the pelican…
. This is my favourite one, it is dated 1970 and is for doll’s clothes.
Sometimes the patterns have stories to tell; inside this packet the lady who had sewn this for her daughter or granddaughter had labeled and stored each pattern outfit in its own plastic bag secured with pins.
Inside this envelope I found another pattern, different pattern number and no sign of its long lost envelope..so far.
It was a mystery so I sewed it…who could resist?
When i was about 6 I used to hand sew dolls clothes for myself…I was always frustrated that they did not turn out like the ones you could buy!!
This one is the oldest of the five…..I sewed the coat for my friend….you can see it in this post
Which is your favourite? do you make dolls clothes for your daughters or granddaughters?
bestest friday wishes to you…
