The Classy Kid Collection has put together a new and revised sewing kit specifically made for dolls of any size. Included are several items that will assist in your doll clothing projects. We have added some great stuff in this revised kit and there are a limited number available. A great value! Included in this kit are:
Pattern Size Chart - This is the perfect chart to have if you sew for modern or vintage dolls. Some of the measurements included are for chest, waist, hip, head, neck, arm length and foot. Most of the charts have measurements for the various size dolls (i.e., 17 and 23 inch Saucy Walkers). There are nearly 70 doll types listed! You will get eight pages of various dolls and one page that has blank charts for you to use for your own dolls that are not listed. You can copy this page at your will for as many as you need.
Woman's Day Patterns - A very unique set of patterns printed in 1956 by Woman's Day. This shows how you can make various sizes of doll clothing using the assembly-line method for selling at bazaars. The dolls featured are baby dolls (Betsy Wetsy, Tiny Tears, Dy-dee) in sizes 11", 13", 16" and 20"; miniature dolls (Ginny, Alexanderkins) in 7-1/2" to 8"; Girl Dolls (Toni, Betsy McCall, Sweet Sue, etc.) in sizes 14", 16", 19" and 21"; and Toddler Dolls (Saucy Walker, Bonnie Braids, etc.) in sizes 14", 17" and 23".
