Peppermintstick's patterns available on Pixiefaire are a great way to get yourself or a doll lover in your life sewing. If you are a beginner check out the On-The Go Halter top pattern offered at $3.99 will help even the most novice of seamstresses build confidence in their abilities!
This easy On The Go Halter Top will look fantastic on your 18inch dolls and looks great with a skirt, pants or shorts and will get lots of year round doll play use! Not to mention it is a great stash busting pattern for those of you with mountains of fabric just waiting to be sewn!

If you are new to my blog you may not know this but I learned to sew with doll clothing patterns I purchased from Pixiefaire (Formally Liberty Jane) in 2010. I had flunked my sewing class in Grade 8 more then 20 years ago but when my mother passed away in 2010 I was determined to do something creative to help me with my grief and I pulled out my long forgotten sewing machine and began to teach myself to sew, giving the doll clothing I proudly made to my 5 nieces doll clothing for Christmas.
That determination turned in to the best creative journey of my life and a little more then three months after my mother passed away I started this blog. So if you are thinking about learning to sew, know that you too can pick it up at an age and learn to sew beautiful doll clothing for yourself, or the doll lover  in your life. The Step by Step photos really help the most nervous beginner gain confidence and You can also reach out to the designers on their Facebook pages if you get stuck!
Or you can email me and I can even try to walk you through it.
So what are you waiting for?  Get sewing and give Peppermintsticks Pattern's a try today.
