Most vintage doll clothing originally came as a whole group of outfits. But what if you only want one? Here at MJs Vintage Patterns, I am always thinking of the customer first. So, I sell each outfit individually so that you can purchase just what you want.

This is a REPRODUCTION of a Vintage 1950s pattern to make doll clothes for your Ginny Doll. In addition to Ginny, this pattern also fits a large variety of other 8" tall dolls some of which include: Wendy, Muffie, Alexander Kins, Marcie and Ginger. This pattern is amazing and makes a huge variety of clothing including: 2 Dresses; Coat, Hat and Bag; Clown Costume; Peignoir, Nightgown and Slippers; and Petticoat, Panties, Bra and even hangers to put them all on. The first dress (shown in light blue) has applied lace at the neckline and skirt lower edge and a ribbon tie in the back. The second dress (shown in black and white) is similar in construction but with no lace and it has a vest that goes over the bodice. The coat, hat and bag are cut from the same material and are designed to fit over either dress. The Pierrette style Clown costume consists of a full body suit, neck ruffle and hat. For bedtime, you get patterns for a peignoir (robe), plus coordinating nightgown and slippers. All undergarment patterns are also included consisting of a petticoat, panties and bra. In addition, there is a pattern to make hangers out of cardboard, so that you can hang up all of the wonderful new clothes that you have made for your Ginny or other 8" tall doll. I include a color printout of the front cover, a black and white copy of the instructions, back cover and the complete pattern. Please email me with any questions that you have.

The Ginny Doll was made starting in 1951 by the Vogue Doll Company. The history of the doll is that the company was originally opened in 1922 and made clothes for bisque dolls. Up until that time most dolls came dressed simply and were not sold with other outfits. The Vogue Doll Company sold beautiful clothing for the dolls of the day: bisque dolls in the 1920s and 30s, and composition dolls in the 1930s and 40s. This started the business that would lead them to become "Fashion Leaders in Doll Society". The concept of dressing dolls in beautiful clothing and providing them with extra outfits is what set the Vogue Doll Company apart from all others and it helped make the Ginny Doll a huge success following her release in 1951. Here was finally an unbreakable plastic doll made by a company that also released dozens of new exquisite outfits for sale every year. Due to Ginny's popularity, pattern companies made patterns so that mothers and their daughters could make additional outfits for these darling dolls. Due to Ginny's popularity, other doll companies came out with their own 8" tall dolls. Madame Alexander made the Wendy, Wendy-Kins, Wendy-Ann and Alexander Kins dolls. Nancy Ann Storybook Dolls (NASB) made the Muffie dolls. A&H Doll Corporation made the Marcie dolls. Cosmopolitan Doll and Toy Corporation made the Ginger dolls. Doll Bodies, Inc made the Lingerie Lou doll. American Character made the Betsy McCall doll that also came in other sizes. I have a large assortment of patterns available to fit your 8" tall doll. This pattern was originally created June 1, 1957. The copyright for this pattern has expired and it entered the public domain Jan 1, 1986.
