We specialize in offering equestrian patterns for 18-inch dolls such as American Girl and Gotz (46cm). Our exclusive patterns incorporate the detail and style associated with traditional riding clothes for TWELVE popular equestrian disciplines. We want you to have a win-win experience -- fun creating the garments and satisfaction sharing your garments with someone you love.
The unique step-by-step instructions make sewing a breeze. We have worked hard to make sure that this is a sewing project that will be easy enough to finish in a few hours but will look like you spent days and days slaving over your sewing machine. We are proud to offer you, the home sewer, sewing patterns that will help you create beautiful garments and accessories that look and feel just like garments that are worn in the real-world by equestrians in their chosen disciplines.
Each pattern comes with detailed, start-to-finish, illustrated instructions that will assist you in your creative process. Along with the pattern pieces, we have included fabric suggestions, yardage requirements, and the cutting layout. Be sure and check out two special pages on our web site-- “Attire” and “Helpful Hints”. The “Attire” page gives a detailed description of the what should be worn for each discipline. For example, a rider showing in a Hunter Seat Equitation class would require a variation on the attire that would be appropriate in a Jumper class. This information is vital for you to make fabric and color choices that will add to the “reality” of your project. The “Helping Hints” page has many suggestions, clever ideas and shortcuts just for you. We want to assist you in making riding clothes, not “doll” clothes.
If you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced sewer, you will enjoy sewing clothes for 18-inch dolls. The most gratifying moment will be when you dress your doll for the first time and see that the cut of each garment is beautifully tailored and you are ready for the show ring! We know that when you invest your time and money in sewing a garment for that special girl in your life, you want to end up with a garment that you will be proud to say, “I made it myself with a REINWEAR pattern!”
