My 3 granddaughters have been given used American Girl dolls who need clothes. I am looking for historical patterns for them. There are some nice patterns at this website:

http://www.dollclothespatternsbymed1.com/patterns.html

But the descriptions state that the patterns do not include any pictures in their instructions.

Has anyone used these? If so, how hard were they to put together using only written instructions?

Also does anyone have any other recommendations for historical AG patterns?

Thanks for any help.

Mary

We don't have a Handcocks around here.

We do have a JoAnn's, and they will have a sale on McCalls patterns next week -- 99 cents each! I will try there, but I don't know if there will be any historical (as opposed to contemporary) patterns. Still, you can't beat the price.

Thanks for the links. I'll go look at them.

...

Ah, back now. I see that one of them has a link to a website on which you can download the original (discontinued) American Girl patterns. I actually have one of the original patterns which I bought for Felicity when my daughter was little. But it was sized for the original AG dolls which were chubbier than the current ones. I don't have access to my granddaughters' dolls which are the newer ones. (They're in Ohio and I'm in California.) Otherwise I'd try to adapt the pattern I already have.

Thanks again,

Mary

If you go to the website www.agplaythings.com, there is a section on that has the discontinued patterns that American Girl put out. There are patterns for Felicity, Addy, Josephina, and Molly, I believe. You download them and print them out on your printer. Instructions and a few diagrams are included with the patterns.

Edited due to hitting the post button to quickly.

I use the same patterns on old and new dolls. No significant fitting issues at all. I buy the Big4 patterns on sale. I have a bunch - like too many. I'll PM you about them.
