Dolls teach Girls…Longer version:  “I am using Dolls to teach girls important skills: Sewing, Pattern design, Crafts, Knitting, and even some History…”   First project involves a Jane Austen style Regency Dress pattern for the 18″ Girl Doll!  Am even hand sewing it!  Will put in my “plug” for the fabulous Jane Austen books…Maybe the Jane Austen style dress is a way to get your young daughter/granddaughter/student to read “Pride and Prejudice”!

Watch for (in no special order): Free Doll Patterns (starting with the now classic 18″ girl doll)…free Doll Accessory Patterns, maybe also free projects girls can duplicate to make money for themselves (such as headbands, doll clothes, purse patterns…to name a few).

This site is also a possible school or homeschool resource.  Stay tuned. Expect to post my pattern (or a way to get the free pattern) in the next week!
