Dollhouse Clothes Patterns

Does anyone have any good dollhouse doll clothing patterns? I'm hoping to stick with Edwardian/Victorian styles. I have an inspiration board on Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/goatlibrarian/victorian-edwardian-dollhouse-inspiration/

I'd be grateful for any and all patterns and tutorials you can share! Thanks in advance!

I can't help you there, however I also am looking for clothing patterns, but I want just modern clothes, like pants, shirts, coats for men and women and modern dresses?

Ooo! Guess what I found?! Blythe patterns!!! Should be around the right size for 1:12 scale. Maybe a tad big... I can't wait to try! Lots of modern patterns, but can also be adapted for historical! http://www.puchicollective.com/sewing-patterns/

For Victorian/ Edwardian I LOVE Sue Atkinson's book. For modern stuff you can prowl thrift stores for old patterns and use the sheet that shows what all the pattern pieces look like.

THIS book would be invaluable to you.

Oh yes, now I remember that book, have been wanting to get it but I forgot about it. I do have a pattern book for Victorian Clothes .....I suppose it wouldn't be that hard to convert them to modern clothes. I like to just follow patterns so I don't have to think. But there again,,,,,,,,, dolls are such different sizes. I have clay bodies made up for all sorts of people. I think I am done selling on ebay so maybe I can get something "important" done like my own miniatures ha wish I had that pink poodle in my avatar. I sold it ........dang! :ohmy:

I just thought of something you could do.........I don't know if Joann's do this in all stores, but sometimes they have patterns for like 1.00 or 1.99 each. You could get Barbie patterns when they do those sales, maybe they do it instore only but you could check online. then just reduce the pattern pieces.........it might take some adjustment still, so I think I would cut each piece a little bigger the pin it on first, then trim it. Heck at 1.00 a piece it would cost more for paper to print out your own first. Patterns are limited and they don't have modern ones anymore .....I don't think.

Years ago I was looking for a bathrobe pattern in 1/12. Kathleen (minikat) suggested that I just use the instruction portions from a regular sized pattern as they have drawn layouts of all the pieces included. Pants, tops, and dresses have very basic pattern shapes. You can get basic sewing patterns for not a lot of money, or even free online.

Here is a bathrobe pattern I made using her idea to share :)

Thanks! Just printed it out! Could always shorten and make a blouse or jacket too! Love patterns lol

Wow until I read this thread, I didn't even think about just printing the page out of the pattern that shows the pieces. (ya know the diagram you use to make sure you have all your pieces) just have to reduce to fit right wowie!

Sherry Colvin has some patterns. Here's her website: http://www.thecolvin...erri-colvin.asp and she has another one that I can't locate right now. But she has put some out as free downloads. You could email her and ask about it.

I found some at one of her links, I could definately get a variety of patterns and use the pieces. to make about anything probably

Thanks for the link.....haven't found the free downloads yet but will keep looking. thanks so much for the link!!

Hey I did fine the freebies on this page : http://minidollkit.c...e-miniature.asp

And ya what, I just remembered, and I have one SOMEwhere.......Dawn Doll clothing patterns. I don't know if they have any current ones but there are vintage ones! Wonder what I will remember next?? haha

Here is a pattern that will make 24 outfits she said for Mini Kingdom Barbie or Dawn. I think mini kingdom barbie and Dawn are a tad too tall for 1:12 though they are always in the "heels" postion. Was thinking about her the other day and wonder if I could cut 1/2 : off her legs then reglue? I have her too SOMEwhere lol
