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!
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.
And don't get us started on our hat patterns. Lee & Pearl designer, Elizabeth Atwater Menes, studied millinery at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. Perfectly made hat patterns will always be a Lee & Pearl specialty.
And don't forget to visit the Fabric & Trim Kit section of our Etsy shop, to share the wonderful, hard-to-find fabrics and materials we are lucky to be able to source here in the Los Angeles garment district.
Check our selection regularly for new additions before they sell out — or scroll down and subscribe to our mailing list to hear about new kits, and new patterns, as soon as they launch!
We LOVE doll craft tutorials. We love to watch them, read them and most of all, we love to make them.
We also link to our own, and other favorite tutorials from crafters around the Internet, on our Pinterest Crafts & Tutorials Board.
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. 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.
