This is assuming you want free or downloadable patterns, I am guessing?
My MIL makes these. I will call her tomorrow and see if she has any ideas.
I know it is a real pain in the butt to sew because everything is so teeny tiny.

Let ya know what I find out.

That's exactly what I need. I did a websearch last night and could only find crochet patterns. I need cloth clothing patterns.

Thanks so much!

My grandmother made me a closetful of Barbie and Ken outfits, gowns, costumes, tuxes ~ you name it! But I can't find my patterns. I've lived hard the last 15 years, though, and have lost many things; the patterns are likely among those losses. :(

My mom crochets angel dresses and wings for Christmas tree toppers. Those will take your breath away!

I really do appreciate everyone's help. If worse comes to worst, I can always sketch something on paper and try the hit=and=miss route, though I'd rather not.

Mairwen...
I spoke to my MIL.
She hasn't found any d/l style patterns online, but she said that (i think) that McCall's makes some very simple patterns that are very cute. She said that you can pick them up cheapest at Walmart if you are lucky enough to have one local.
Other than that, I could always photocopy the patterns and mail them down to you if you don't really want to spend any money. LMK

I found a pattern today 1/2 off ~ it was still $5. I appreciate the offer. I'm going ot see if the shop owner will give me money for patterns, since she is giving me $$ for supplies. If that doesn't pan out, I'll take you up on that photocopy offer. Thanks!
