     Do you have daughters or even sons that want to learn to sew? How about yourself? I know I taught myself to sew, so I am pretty basic when it comes to what I can do, nothing fancy but I yearn to learn more. I want to teach my future (hoping and praying) granddaughters in years to come how to make their own doll clothes and other fun things. I have tons of projects pinned to Pinterest but really needed more teaching and training. Alyx has shown an interest to learn as well, as he wants to be able to sew his own car upholstery down the road. So I was super excited to be chosen to review Rosie's Doll Clothes Patterns and her online Learn How to Make Doll Clothes Video Course with 8 Free Doll Clothes Patterns

   I was excited for this for many reasons, and for the opportunities it would open up for myself and my family. First off I Alyx and I have been searching for a craft we can make and sell at our outdoor craft fair that is held each month during the Spring to Fall at our campground. Something we could afford to buy supplies for and make up enough ahead of time without breaking the bank. Secondly I have been wanting to get a couple 18" Dolls to use on my display tables for my Hair Jewelry business to showcase some of the hair clips in different styles, and I would love to make them clothes to match my display table for the different seasons.  Lastly and in my book the most important I want to be able to make doll clothes for my grandchildren(praying for future granddaughters) and then when they get old enough teach them to make their own. It is never too early to start preparing.

    So what do you get when you order the Learn How to Make Doll Clothes Video Course with 8 Free Doll Clothes Patterns...

The Course has just over 130 videos that take you through everything you will need to know about sewing doll clothes.  The course is designed to give you everything you need, including Cool Tips and Troubleshooting videos.

The patterns available are the 8 free patterns in the menu below.  They are:

Sport Shorts
Crop Top
Halter Top
Summer Nightie

All come with PDF pattern pieces and basic written instructions and step by step videos on how to make the outfits as well.

   You get all of the above for the price of $47.23 USD, Now the standard pricing is in AUD so the price fluctuates a but from time to time based on current currency exchange rates. You can choose to get them all at once or to get one course and bonus pattern every 6 weeks so as not to get overwhelmed. These are geared to those 8 and up, some may need more help and supervision than others, you are the only one that can decide what your child's levels are. You can then go back and view them again anytime in the year you have access.  There is also a special going on Now through December 24th, 2013 Rosie is offering an additional pattern free with her online tutorials or DVD tutorials, so that gives you a total of 9 patterns, and each pattern comes with additional step by step tutorials for you to make the perfect doll clothes. Now when you purchase the Online Video Course that gives you access to all of the videos for 1 year, as well as the PDF files for the patterns listed above. You can also order the DVD version which gives you a lifetime of watching them over and over and passing them down. I am seriously considering this as I would like to have them for down the road. You know for those Granddaughters I pray for. The DVD set is 3 complete DVD's and they run currently $66.14 so not much more in price to have them forever.

   Wouldn't this make a fantastic Christmas or Birthday gift for that crafty girl in your life, or how about yourself. Think of all of the possibilities, and if you are anything like me, imagine hitting those clearance tables at the local fabric store, and how much you can get for $1 and how many little clothing articles you could get out of a yard. I had so much fun going through my stack of fabric scraps and am excited to make some clothes and get my dolls for my upcoming Holiday open house. I will be sure to post some pictures when I get them all done. My first attempts were not the greatest, so I am a wee bit embarrassed to share, but it is not the fault of the tutorials at all, they very easy to follow and the volume and teaching are very well done.  I am just bad at following patterns, which is why I am such a basic seamstress. I am enjoying them however as they are very easy to print (there are step by step instructions for printing the patterns as well as assembling them to get started, and if you have done patterns before you will have no problems, or if you are good at following directions. I am not sure if it is because my house is so chaotic but I have a terrible time concentrating sometimes. I am hoping over the Holiday Break coming up I will have more time to "play" and create some adorable clothes to give as Christmas gifts to my nieces. The possibilities truly are endless as the fabric choices are adorable that are out on the market. Way cuter than anything you could buy premade in the stores and think of how much those outfits cost, Oh MY Word... So you will save money, have fun, and learn something too.
  Who is Rosie?

Hi, I’m Rosanne…but all my friends call me Rosie.  I’m a stay-at-home mom and have been sewing since I was 8 or 9 years old (I can’t quite remember as it was a long time ago).

    There are other patterns you can purchase as well as the ones you get for free, I am leaning into purchasing the Winter Clothing Bundle for $15.24 USD and it comes with some fun fur trimmed outfits. It is getting chilly here and I think they would look amazing on my display table. There are many other money saving bundles available as well. These additional patterns would be perfect when your daughter accomplishes the whole course and would serve as a wonderful reward and keep her motivated to learn more. Maybe you and your daughter could start a little craft business as well. Selling to friends and family and maybe even setting up a little online shop. What a wonderful way to bring in some extra money all while having a bonding time learning and creating together.
