SSP-058 for Effner Boneka AND Iplehouse BID.

It's been a while.  I'm sorry, I know, but I've been forced to take a break and develop things slowly for a while due to burnout.  But what better way to ease myself back into it than with a delightfully simple little pattern for two similar dolls?

I love the size of both of these girls, they're  fun to sew for.

*Available in my Etsy shop:

*Etsy will charge EU customers VAT (This does not affect America or other non-EU countries).  I always recommend people to look in my Craftsy store anyway, as the prices fluctuate, due to the international exchange rates.  I always recommend comparing prices.

My Craftsy store:

On CD disc from Ebay: (No VAT payable, and no charge for the CD itself, just  the pattern cost and the postage.)

Or right here on the blog: (PayPal shopping cart)

If you do buy from me here on the blog, and you live in the EU, the rules state that I don't have to charge you VAT as it's a direct sale. Once you have cleared checkout, I will email the pattern files to you directly. Please allow me 24 hours, because of time zones. Usually it will be far quicker than that.

You can find the sales pages at the top of the blog, in tabs for each section. I will email you the pattern PDF files directly, after you've cleared checkout. Click this link to email me, if you have any queries.

I have been working on my files to try and consolidate the tutorial parts and pattern template parts, to create just one document that is neater and easier to download.  There are still two paper sizes, A4 for Europe, etc, and US Letter size for the States.  You will receive the pattern in the new format.


There are two separate bodices, one for each doll.  I have tried the BID bodice on the Boneka, but it is a bit baggy for her.  And vice-versa, the Boneka bodice won't fasten up at the back when tried on the BID.

The other pieces are the same for both dolls, and the fit is really good.

The two dolls have different proportions.  BID has a longer body and short legs. Boneka has a shorter body and longer legs.   So the bloomers will look a little shorter on Boneka, but are very easy to lengthen by about 1/2"

To make things easier for beginners, I've used elasticated waists for the petticoats and bloomers.  I find on this scale of doll, elasticated waistbands are good, as the petticoat will stay firmly put, and won't slide around.

That's that for now.  I may make another pattern for these two girls next. Maybe a longer party dress.  I'm looking at my hugs fabric stash and feeling spoilt for choice.

  1. Very cute - and you could make a nice simple skirt out of the petticoat pattern! Lost my mojo again..... the tribe is not impressed!


Sorry, I have had so many spammy comments that I need to moderate all of them. I will get to approving your comment just as soon as I can.
