Now I’ve given you every single pattern and tutorial on the Swedish Traditional Folk Costume, so I’ll offer links back to everything I’ve shared.
First there’s my Pinterest page, where I was first inspired by the ladies of Delarna, Sweden. (I’m not Swedish myself, but I love folk costumes from all parts of the world.) When I first ran across the pocket purses, I looked into the traditional costume of the people of Delarna, Sweden. And based on what I learned online, I designed my own costume to fit 18″ dolls like American Girl dolls, Madame Alexander, and others.
Here are the links to all the patterns I’ve created:
- Pattern A (Bonnet, Vest, and Collar)
- Pattern B (Apron + Skirt’s Waistband)
- Pattern C (Sleeve and Cuff for Blouse/Top/Shirt)
- Pattern D (Swedish “Pocket” Purse, Bonnet Front, Bodice Back)
- Pattern E (Basic Doll Skirt)
- Pattern F (Bodice Front and Vest Front)
- Pattern G (Neckerchief and Apron Belt)
And these are the links to all the tutorials that match:
- Tutorial for bonnet

- Tutorial for skirt
- Tutorial for collared shirt
- Tutorial for “pocket” purse
- Tutorial for neckerchief
I hope I’m not missing anything!
