Pearls are patterns for people who want to learn new sewing skills — just one at a time, on a limited project, and with a well-designed reward after each lesson!

Of course, you don't have to be a beginner to enjoy our Pearls. As time- and budget-friendly patterns for doll wardrobe basics, we know that they will be especially welcome for busy parents and craft fair sellers. Got an hour to spare? Make yourself a perfect Pearl!

Since launching our Etsy shop in 2013, Lee & Pearl have built a reputation for professionally drafted patterns that fit perfectly and go together easily, with amazing instructions. You will never find a mis-matched curve or vague direction in a Lee & Pearl pattern!Lee & Pearl Pattern 1073: Prima Ballerina Strapless Bodice and Classical Tutu with Basque and Panty for 18 Inch Dolls

Along with those reliable pieces, clear directions and carefully drafted measurements, Lee & Pearl are proud of our reputation for making patterns for one-of-a-kind doll outfits that look just like the real thing, whether it's a perfectly layered and balanced Classical tutu, or a skating dress with a skirt drafted to hang just like the real ones, or a slinky wrap dress indistinguishable from a '70s original, or a historically accurate (and deeply romantic) medieval gown, or a replica U.S. Army uniform that has to be seen — and made — to be believed, or... we could go on and on.

Crafts, Tweaks and Tutorials

We LOVE 18 inch doll craft tutorials. We love to watch them, read them — and most of all, we love to make them.

You can find our tutorials in our monthly Newsletters, on our YouTube Channel, on our Pinterest Crafts & Tutorials Board, and of course, linked from our Tutorials page.

Lee & Pearl Pattern 3001: A Late Medieval Lady's Wardrobe for 18 Inch DollsOne of our most popular tutorial features is the FREE "Tweak the Pattern" PDF download that we like to offer in our newsletters.

We love it when people take our patterns beyond the outfit on the cover. In fact, we often do that ourselves. And when we do, we love to put those ideas into free pattern or tutorial form for our Newsletter subscribers.

Some of these "Tweak the Pattern" features involve new pattern pieces, while others are suggestions for using unexpected materials or trims.

For this boho look, make Lee & Pearl Pattern 1057: Halter Swimsuit and Swimdress for 18 Inch Dolls using the fringed tweak, available on our website at www.leeandpearl.com

And don't worry if you miss any of these tweaks: all newsletter content, including the FREE Tweak the Pattern downloads, are available in our Newsletter Archive.
