Did you just swoon with delight
at this darling little sailor outfit?
I adore sailor outfits!
And I have a wonderful talented
friend who designs gorgeous patterns
for 18" dolls.
Her name is Genine and
her company is Genniewren Designs.
This little outfit was made using her
brand new "Harriet" pattern.
I adore this pattern!
The pattern comes as a PDF
complete with pattern pieces
and instructions to make the dropped waist
pleated skirt dress,
and the sailor blouse.
I made the blouse with the short sleeves,
but there is also a long sleeve variation,
and even a ruffled collar variation.
Ahnalin's Molly and Elizabeth dolls
each had to have their chance modeling
They both love it as well.
Ahnalin and I sewed this little outfit together.
She picked out the fabric from my stash,
and helped me with the cutting and the straight seams.
And it was her idea
to use the tiny piece of tucked trim for the
inset on the dress.
(Ahnalin styling her model for the perfect photo)
She wants to make another dress
using this pattern,
to be more like a cheerleading outfit!
If you have a little girl
(or are a little girl at heart)
her 18" doll, then you need to
get right on over to Genine's store
and load up on her gorgeous patterns.
She has so many darling designs
and her instructions are so easy to follow.
thank you for allowing us
to enjoy your wonderful design.
I can't wait to make up
even more of your amazing designs.
