Here’s Pattern D for the Swedish Traditional Costume that’s designed to fit 18″ dolls like American Girl dolls and their look-alikes. You might recognize this post, as it’s a re-post from two weeks ago. I just wanted to make it easy to find Pattern D, which is the one you’ll need for creating the “Pocket” purse I’m making this week.

Later on, I’ll show you how to use the same bunch of patterns (found on my Free Doll Clothes Patterns page) to make the vest portion of the Swedish Traditional Costume that I’ve designed. For anyone who needs help printing my patterns, have a look at this video, which is designed to guide you.

Meanwhile, it’s always friendly and kind to like my pattern on FB, tweet about it, and/or pin it to your Pinterest page. That way you’re helping to spread the word that these free, printable sewing patterns exist.

Also, remember to enlarge my patterns to fit a full-sized piece of US computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) before printing. My designs use a 1/4 inch seam (standard for many doll sewing projects).
