Schoolhouse Review: Rosie’s Doll Clothes Patterns

 photo rosies2_zpse8168139.jpg

For the past 2 years my daughter Annette has been attending a two hour once a week sewing class at our church. During this time she has made a few skirts, dresses, pillowcases, aprons, and a few other items. One thing she hasn’t made are doll clothes. I thought it would be fun to give Rosie’s Doll Clothes Patterns a try. She could learn some tips and trick and maybe apply some of what she learns to other aspects of her sewing.

What we received was a 1 year online membership ($48.06) which includes:

  • Over 130 video tutorials
  • Over 8 hours of teaching
  • Bonus of 8 doll clothes patterns in pdf format
  • 6 Weeks of step by step instructions

Rosie’s Doll Clothes Patterns makes it easy for the beginner or experienced sewer to jump right in and get started. The recommended age is 8 and up. The course is broken up into 6 weeks which for us was great because we felt a sense of order. Each week has a title links. For instance Week 1 will cover:

  • Introduction to How to Sew Doll Clothes
  • Setting Up Your Sewing Room
  • Tools that Make Sewing Doll Clothes Easy
  • Everything You Need to Know About Fabric
  • Know Your Elastic
  • How to Use Your Sewing Tools
  • Cool Tips When Using Your Sewing Tools

You click on the title.

Under the title are subtitles.

Annette would click on the pink subtitle to watch a 1-6 minute video tutorial.

Each video is very thorough and Rosie talks you through each step. The length of each video varies depending on what is being taught. The videos are professionally done and you can tell Rosie loves what she is doing. She has a very cheerful, pleasant, and kind voice.

Annette enjoyed watching the video tutorials. It was like having her own personal sewing teacher. If there was something she didn’t understand the first time she could always view it again. The tutorials didn’t take a lot of time out of her busy school schedule and she liked that the course can be part of her Home Economics class.

With the course you receive eight free patterns:

  1. Sport Shorts
  2. Crop Top
  3. Sarong
  4. Halter Top
  5. Pumpkin Costume
  6. Underpants
  7. Summer Nightie

Annette chose to make a Sarong. She thought the skirt was really cute. This was her first attempt to sew something for a doll and I do think she did a great job. We would have loved to show you all how the Sarong fit an 18 inch doll but guess what? With five brothers who love knives, air soft guns, and Star Wars, well, my little girl is kind of in the minority here. Instead of a doll she has a pink air soft pistol .

For Annette, Rosie’s Doll Clothes Patterns built on top of what she already learned from her sewing teacher at church. It also provided her with some new tips and tricks. She hadn’t learned much about casing, how to attach velcro and studs, working with buttons and ribbons, so there was a lot exciting new things for her to learn as well.

My final thoughts: If your daughter would like to learn how to sew doll clothes for her babies, I’d highly suggest Rosie’s Doll Clothes Patterns. Rosie does a great job with explaining her sewing tips and which tools she recommends to make things run smoothly. She’s friendly and ‘patient’ too!

  1. This is so cool! I will have to look into it. MaryEllen has been wanting to learn to sew so she can make clothes for her Liberty doll. I'll have to show her.

  2. Sewing your own dolls clothes will surely save you much. And this seems a great way to learn how to sew dolls clothes. This would be a great start in the learning process of sewing clothes for dolls.
