    What is the stand?

  6. E. Ziegler says:

    I bought this pattern and immediately used it. However, I’m very disappointed with the end product. When I stuffed the form to make it sturdy, it was too big for the doll clothes. When I took out stuffing so that the clothes would fit, the form became too floppy and would not sit straight. I used polyester fiberfill, as one uses for stuffing pillows. Does anyone have any suggestions for making this so that it is sturdy, and sits upright, with some “body” so that the doll clothes can be displayed on it? Thanks!

    • Cinnamon says:

      Hi, Sorry to hear this! My sugesstion would be to be sure that the seam allowances are correct and that the pattern is printed/cut at the right scale. I’ve made several and I’ve seen some made by others that stand on their own and display the clothes fine. Hope this helps 🙂

      • Pam says:

        To the lady that the form was to large. If you did not have high thread count of your fabric it would have allowed it to stretch while stuffing it.

        • The_L says:

          She may also have tried using knit, which is a bad idea because knit is pretty much MADE to stretch.

          Oh well. Fun, cheap project for fat quarters!

  7. Zari says:

    Is there a specific type of stuffing/batting that you recommend using most?

  8. Megan says:

    looks kinda weird…..

  9. Connie says:

    I would love to see this pattern made in a really fancy silk fabric and then used to display the doll clothes that are made up on it. It would be a lovely addition to anyones doll collection.

  10. Sharon thomas says:

    I’d like to see this in a check print. It would certainly help with lining up the pieces.

  11. sera says:

    i wish you had a video on that, i really want that pattern but i dont like putting my credit card on the internet!

    • judierob says:

      Hi Sera, I used to feel like you but I use Pay Pal and it is great. I never worry anymore. Had no problems at all and Liberty Jayne use it too. I get all mine that way.

    I bought a pattern from Eden Ava, the 1930’s Ruffled Play dress. I was filing the pattern and discovered I had already purchases this dress. Is there a way you can track it and you will see that I have purchased it twice. I would like another pattern in place of the one I bought twice if possible.

  13. Mary says:

    Is there a plaece I can purchase a ready made dress form? I am just not ceative enough to build one myself. Thanks

  14. Mary says:

    Is there a place I can purchase the 18″ doll dress form already made up. Thank-you

    • Kristina Haney says:

      Hello Mary, my name is Kristina. I just so happened to be browsing through Liberty Jane’s site, when I came across your comment about purchasing a ready made American Girl doll dress form. I don’t know if you’re still interested, but I would be happy to make you a custom 18″ Doll Dress Form. You can email me: Kmomaz2@gmail.com, OR (even better yet) you can text or call me at 480-200-7925. If by chance, I do not answer, please leave me a message and I will be sure to get back with you.

      P.S. In addition to the dress from, I create one of a kind American Girl/
      18″ doll clothes and accessories.

  15. I also would like to purchase a dress form. I know from making stuffed toys for kids that the stuffing does not always fill it. If I could make the form I would try buy I hesitate also to put credit card. I am making three oulfits at a time . I would make things easier for me.

  16. Karen says:

    What height candlestick do you use to get the best “length” to replicate the doll’s measurements?

    • Diana says:

      I am wondering the same thing. Hopefully someone will answer. I don’t have an American girl doll but would like to have a dress form for fitting the doll clothes that I make to sell.

      • Team LJC says:

        HI Diana and Karen, the height of the candelstick or base would need to be 7.5 inches to have the shoulder of the form at the same height as the shoulder of the doll. This may be hard to find, but you could try to stack thin layers of wood under the base to get the exact right height. Hope this helps!
