Preview of this week’s special Valentine’s Day dress patterns! #ValentinesDay #dolls

Here we see a Queens of Africa doll wearing a red cotton pencil-skirt dress with an opaque ribbon tied around the waist. The ribbon is also red with white polka dots. The straps on this pencil-skirt dress's bodice match the polka-dot ribbon tied around the dress's waist. The dress would be perfect for a date on Valentine's Day!

This week we’re celebrating Valentine’s Day here in the United States, so for this special occasion, I’m reposting my previous Valentine’s Day patterns in PDF form. The one at the top is a red, pencil-skirt style dress for 11-inch (or 11.5-inch / 28-29 cm) fashion dolls.

Next you can see a lovely pink floral dress below. The earlier rendition of this dress was a red plaid dress.

This image shows a Queens of Africa doll wearing a pretty handmade dress made of thin pink material decorated with polka dots and flowers on pink and white striped fabric. The dress has a short, straight skirt and a summery bodice with straps made of ribbon. The watermark says, " Free doll clothes patterns and tutorials." The Queens of Africa dolls have a body shape similar to a Barbie-sized doll. She stands 11 inches high and has dark chocolate complexion. Her hair is quite curly. To purchase a Queens of Africa doll, go to In this particular image, the doll seems to stand tall, like she's proud of her African heritage. Her chocolate complexion contrasts the pink and white stripes in a lovely way.

And then next we have the pencil skirt with a flouncy skirt over the top. My earlier rendition of this pattern was a red pencil skirt with a white flouncy skirt that had tiny red hearts on it.

You can see the new version below. I thought I’d try sewing the new version of this dress, using one fabric instead of two different ones, and I really like the way it turned out!
