My favorite free patterns!

All these patterns I found offered free from one place or another.  
PLEASE these patterns for personal use only. Thanks!  

The very best free patterns are from American Girl.  These are the retired patterns that are authentic AG dress patterns.  These patterns you just download and print.  I warn you though that each one has lots of pages, so look through the patterns and select the pages you want to print. 
Just a note, I have found some of these AG patterns a little too tight, so I always add a little extra fabric when I cut out.  I believe the Pleasant Co. dolls were slightly thinner.

Below are some dresses I made from these AG patterns
                                    Josefina's Christmas dress            Molly's slip pattern
                                     (made with short sleeves)

                                                             Felicity's Colonial Dress
                                                         (not as hard as I anticipated)

**(I suggest you copy and paste these patterns into a WORD document or publishing program like 
PAINTand make sure each pattern page is covering an 8.5x11 paper.)**

This first pattern is one I have made several times.The instructions were a little vague, but if you have some basic sewing knowledge you should be able to figure it out.  Be aware that this pattern is a little tight on AG dolls, so cut a bit extra on the back.

Here is one of the dresses I made with this pattern

I have used this tee pattern a LOT!

Here is the tee pattern made up. 
 In the first I added lace ruffle to the bottom.  super easy
                                                                            This tee I hand painted to match a tee of my daughters

This next pattern is one I modified from pajamas.  
Sorry the print is so bad, I scanned my cut out pattern to share.
This is the pattern I used to make my Punjabi dresses.

                                    **Remember print all these patterns on 8.5x11 paper** 

Here is the pattern made up.  I added a length of sheer/filmy fabric for the scarf.

I haven't made either of these next 2 patterns
Just a note, the swimsuit seemed small when I printed it out on 8.5x11 paper, 
but maybe this is allowing for stretchy fabric?

I tried to download some of the free AG doll clothes patterns. They downloaded, but when I opened them, there were like 63 blank pages. Is there a reason for that? Help! ;) Thanks.

Sophie and Brenda said...

I am not certain. Let me try downloading them again and see if they work.

Sophie and Brenda said...

I downloaded Addy's patterns and it worked fine. You do need Adobe Reader for these patterns. There is a free download for it if you don't have it. Try again, they are great patterns.

The instructions on the regency dress are way more than vague. I have a LOT of sewing knowledge and I can't make heads or tails of the instructions about the skirt. I would love it if you could email me better instructions because all that about three panels makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever.

Brenda and Sophie said...

Oh dear! I never looked at the instructions. I just cut out a long rectangle of fabric and gathered it. If you download the American Girl Josefina patterns - also free - Her regency dress has more pieces in the bodice, but VERY detailed instructions. The Josefina dress has long sleeves but I used another doll patterns puff sleeve instead, like Molly's or Kirsten's dress sleeve.

Thanks for the patterns! I have all of the AG old patterns! They are so good, just a little unexplanatory! I put a collar on wrong once! Oh well!

Brenda and Sophie said...

Your're welcome Chloe! I love free patterns and when I found ALL the AG free patterns I felt like I had struck gold! I'll bet that dress you made with the wrong way collar was still cute! Hang in there and keep sewing. My grandma (who taught me to sew) told me it gets easier every time you make something and she was right.

Chloe Noller said...

Thanks! When I found them, I felt like I had struck gold too! I have the Kirsten, Felicity, Molly, Addy, Josefina, and Samantha patterns. They are soooo cool!

Brenda and Sophie said...

Have you made all those? I wish I knew how to let readers share pictures of their creations!

Neesie Davis said...

wow!your work looks so pretty and professional!
Thanks so much for sharing!

Brenda and Sophie said...

Thanks Nessie! I love sharing free doll stuff and these patterns are really amazingly easy.
And blessings right back at you!

Thank you for all these wonderful patterns and links. I had already purchased a Butterick pattern, at the sale price of cad13.00. Your patterns and ideas let me expand the possibilities 1000 fold. Thank you again.

Brenda and Sophie said...

You are SO welcome Marie. I have used all these patterns myself. I found some of the AG patterns a bit tight so be sure to add a little in the bodice seam allowances. Enjoy!!

These are so great! Thank you!
