Trixie may look like an evil step-sister, but she has a secret!

Underneath that tough exterior is a sweet and charming girl.


Trixie and Tess are two sides of this clever topsy turvy doll. A topsy turvy doll is a classic children’s toy and is really two dolls in one: flip up the skirt to reveal the second doll. This doll is easy and fun to make and is sure to provide a child with hours of creative play!

This listing is for a PDF sewing pattern that will be emailed to you within 24 hours of purchase. I will email the pattern to your PayPal email address unless you note otherwise.

I take you through the process of making Trixie and Tess each step of the way with clear written instructions and step-by-step photos. The pattern templates are full-sized. Just print them out and start sewing!

The finished doll is 14 1/2 inches tall x 12 inches wide.

This sewing pattern is best suited for sewists who already know how to sew a straight stitch on the sewing machine, how to baste, and how to do some basic hand stitching and basic embroidery. There are some easy gathers in the skirt and I take you through them with a clear explanation so if you can still make this pattern if you've never done gathers before.

If you've made a doll or two already, you're ready for this pattern!
