About the designer

I am a mother, jeweler and metalworking teacher by day. At night (and during naptime) I transform into a ravenous seamstress and designer of doll clothes. When I'm not making things, you can find me ...

Zoe Dress for 15' Waldorf Dolls

from DalaiMama Patterns
(9) Name: 'Sewing : Zoe Dress for 15' Waldorf Dolls

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • basic machine sewing
  • some experience with patterns

Pattern Description:

The Zoe Dress has a ribbon-tie halter top and a double layer circle skirt. Make it with just the shorter skirt for a cute top with leggings, or with just the longer skirt for a simple dress- that's three different options! This dress can be pulled up over your doll's legs hips, and ties easily around the neck- no velcro!

This Pattern is suitable for advanced beginners. All of my patterns are designed to fit 15" Bamboletta dolls, although you may find that other makers' dolls can wear these clothes as well.

This dress is named after my dearest friend Robin's daughter Zoe, a fiddle-playing, ballet-dancing, spunky little redhead who is above average in every way.

A few words for Etsy sellers and professional makers of doll clothes...
I am a work at home mom, designing these clothes, drafting the patterns, then writing and photographing the tutorials all while my two year old sleeps (or plays quietly, HA!). I realize that it is impossible to ask or expect my customers not to sell the doll clothes they make from my patterns, but please understand that it is an extraordinary amount of work to produce these documents. I hope that my customers, who are designers and work-at-home mothers like me will respect the following wishes if they will be selling clothes made from my patterns:

**Please give credit where credit is due- Include in your item description, "This dress was made from a DalaiMama Pattern" and a direct link back to my shop listing for the pattern you purchased. This also applies to any promotion via blog, Facebook, Etsy, personal websites, bigcartel, etc.

**Please do not mass produce my designs or offer "custom orders" made from my patterns. If a customer messages you privately to create a custom order using one of my patterns, that's one thing. But if your shop has "custom slot" type listings, I ask that you please do not offer my designs for sale in this way.
