Elizabeth Stewart Clark & Company


Digital Download Doll Patterns

Whether outfitting a child for play in history settings, or developing hands-on items for educational outreach, or collecting for personal satisfaction, dolls inspired by history have a certain charm that just can’t be found elsewhere. Our doll offerings are carefully designed to offer a range of historically-accurate options, with the same miniaturized features we’ve found on extant dolls and doll items.

Yes, You May

  • Make loads of dolls & clothing for friends & family.
  • Make items for school group or museum “dress-up” and docent use.
  • Encourage others to buy their own downloadable pattern from us!
  • Contact us for information on using our patterns for historic preservation, interpretive, or educational fundraising.

Please Do Not

  • Use our patterns beyond their licensing: our patterns are licensed for home and personal non-commercial use only. Items made from our patterns are not licensed for retail or wholesale sales, in person or on-line.
  • If you are a sewist, and wish to use our patterns with your client families, please contact us regarding special licensing consideration.
