Ok, whew....I am exhausted from trying to find hip clothes patterns for Waldorf Dolls. I haven't started my doll yet so it doesn't matter if they are for 12" or 16"dolls. But, does anyone know where i can find hip Waldorf doll clothes patterns?? I found two great shops on Etsy that have what I want as far as clothing style but neither will sell patterns. Please help!! Here are the shops links so you know what I am looking for.

I can understand why a doll maker would not want to give up the patterns they are using and worked so hard to create.

Here are some clothing patterns for 12 & 16" Waldorf dolls. Maybe you could adjust them to suit the style you want?-

There are lots of others out there if you do a search.

If you are able to get the measurements for the doll clothes, you can make essentially anything you can dream of!

I guess I have bought so many patterns and tutorials from Etsy I thought I would try. They both make their own tho. I guess I will try too. It's just that I have only followed pattern and not altered one. I have been to the Weir Dolls site. I do not like the clothes but as far as a good base it might do well. I also appreciate the links to the free patterns for knitting but I am one of the only crafty women left who crochet instead of knit. I do plan to learn ASAP tho. I will favorite them and hopefully use them at a later date. I will dream away and see what I come up with. Maybe I will come back and post a link to my picture of it when it is done. Thanks, Melody

Have you tried looking at patterns for premature babies? Our 16inch dolls fit well in the 3-5lb size.

I too have searched high and low for cute patterns and nothing!!! Im almost tempted to design my own!!...and sell them, as i know it would probably be a "good" seller.

I was referred to this page, just follow the links to the doll patterns, sadly unless you are good at referring strictly to diagrams, then these patterns may come in handy...because they are in french.

Holy cow! Those ARE super cute and hip clothes! Love them! Wish I knew what to do. I have a knitting designer friend who is considering coming up with something, but I would also like sewing patterns for those types of clothes, myself. My dolls are 12" so I suppose even if someone finds something, alterations would be in order.

 The book Baby Dolls and Their Clothing by Valeria Ferrari teaches you how to make a lot of clothes for your waldorf doll.  They are more of a traditional style, but its a good starting point, and fabric selection does a lot to hip things up.  Good luck!

Hello,

 

I've read your mail about free patterns for dolls. I hope you've found what you've been looking for but as I live in France I've found on http://happydoll.canalblog.com free patterns for sewed or knitted clothes (see in Tags : Coudre pour sa poupée and Tricoter pour sa poupée).

 

 

If you're looking for inspiration, have a look on :

http://danslabulledeclo.canalblog.com (see in Catégories : Histoire de poupées (several pages of beautifully dressed dolls)

                                                                                   : Livres (Books written by the website author and sold on AMAZON. One of it : "Les habits de ma poupée" contains 20 easy patterns for dressing dolls from 32 cm to 42 cm).

 

http://penderiespoupees.canalblog.com (see in Catégories : Les poupées couture and Les poupées tricot)

Bye
