Hi I’m Jenny and I blog over at little jenny wren.
I am a doll maker and I like to dress my dolls in clothes based on vintage doll clothes patterns from the 1960s such as these below.
I also make many of my own clothes and always have.
I love knitting and sewing.
I have a good collection of vintage patterns from the 1950s onwards.
My patterns are mostly inherited from my mother and Auntie Maisie plus some of the patterns that I originally learned to sew with , back in the early 70s are now considered vintage.
Lately I have become a bit obsessed with children’s sewing patterns mainly from the late 50s and early 60s.
I just love the artwork on them especially those from my favourite designer Helen Lee.
I have started a new blog Sweet Things and I am going to chronicle my progress through all these sweet children’s patterns.
Again most of my collection of patterns come from my mother and auntie but I am always on the look out for cute patterns up to size 6 .
So far for my first project I am only up to the cutting out stage but hopefully I will be able to give it a little more time very soon.
If you want to see more of my patterns you can visit my Flickr vintage pattern set
