Milly the Mermaid Doll Basic Mod Doll Pattern

Have you guys seen Sarah Jane’s new adorable fabric line, Out to Sea? If not you are in for a real treat!!

And as part of her incredibly fun blog tour, I’m offering up a doll pattern, based on my Mod Dolls, for you to create your own mod Milly the Mermaid doll!!

In celebration of the the Out to Sea tour, for a limited time, I’ll be offering a FREE downloadable pattern and instructions for the basic Mod Doll itself. Tomorrow I’ll be offering the pattern for the mermaid ensemble, complete with instructions and additional hair and skirt options, in my shop! And can I just say that I love that you can take her tail off and change up for another option at a whim?! She can be your real life little mermaid!

Purchase the full MILLY THE MERMAID pattern HERE

And you know that if you make one, I just have to see it! So please do share your darling mermaid creations when they are complete!!

and stay tuned for the limited release of the mermaid ensemble tomorrow!!

(and I’ve no doubt there will a number of many more outfits for our little Mod Doll in the future!)*Update: The simple Mod Doll Pattern is no longer available for free download but you can purchase the entire pattern, complete with mermaid tail, top, skirt and two types of hair here.

    Oh my goodness! I have to make one for my little girls birthday that’s coming soon! I am a newbie to sewing do you think I can handle it? This might be a silly question but how much and what type of fabric would I need to make this sweet girl? My email is thanks! Julie
