Rosie's Doll Clothes Patterns



Hi Neighbors!

This time around the TOS Crew was able to review Rosie's Doll Clothes Patterns.  My daughter thought this was GREAT!  She has been wanting to sew for so long.  Both her older sisters sew and all she has done so far are pillows.  Through Rosie's Doll Clothes Patterns, Learn to Make Doll Clothes Online Video Course With 8 Free Doll Clothes Patterns, she received the opportunity to learn more.  For $47.49 you receive:

  • Over 130 step-by-step instructional videos which means even if you have been sewing for years, you are sure to learn lots of new tips and techniques
  • The confidence to do it yourself because my videos are so clear and comprehensive – I’ve been told they are ‘Goof Proof!’
  • 12 months’ access so that you can watch the videos as many times as you like, whenever you like which makes it super convenient and there’s no need to travel to classes

You will also receive 8 free 18" American Girl Doll Clothes Patterns, which includes step by step videos.


I will tell you here, my 26 year old helped M with her sewing.  She far surpassed my sewing, as she is the one I go to when I need help.  She can take sleeves from one pattern and add them to another, you know adjust the patterns to her needs.  Anyway, I knew she was the one to walk M through this course.


The course actually starts at the very beginning with an introduction to making doll clothes, that includes setting up your sewing room, a lesson on types of fabrics, elastic, sewing tools and more.  Now, some of this was extra as we already have a machine, and a sewing area, but M watched these anyway.  Week two has you learning about fabric, trouble shooting, thread and such.  Week three is where she began sewing.  This is where she learned to sew a straight line, zig zag stitch and to make hems.

We went ahead and started the sarong, sort of a wrap skirt.  The patterns are quite easy to print off on your printer, just make sure you print actual size, don't allow your printer to downsize it to fit the paper.  Your clothes will never fit the doll if it does this!  They worked diligently and produced a pretty good looking sarong.


M is 13 now, she actually just recently turned 13, but this was perfect for her.  She was able to watch the videos and then proceed to the sewing.  I am not sure how she would have done without her sister's guidance, but I think it would have gone fine.  This program is recommended for ages 8 and up.

By the time you or your child finishes the course they will have a good knowledge of sewing for their dolls, which would then of course work into their sewing other items.  This is a good basic course for learning different sewing techniques.  Honestly, I personally think it is easier to sew full size clothing than it is to sew doll clothes.



If you have someone in your family who would like to learn to sew, I believe the Rosie's Doll Clothes Patterns would make a great elective course for homeschooling.  I also recommend it for anyone who would like to make doll clothes.  Check out our pictures and short video, then go see what other TOS Crew members had to say about their experience by clicking on the banner below.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important.

Research The Country You need to do lots of research before you move abroad, especially if you haven’t visited the count
