Welcome to Gail’s Vintage Doll e-Patterns!

I, Gail Kellison, am the sole owner of GailsDollEPatterns and Gail's Doll Patterns. This shop is not owned or operated by any other shop on Etsy.

I specialize in selling vintage doll patterns, doll clothes patterns, stuffed toy patterns, and other miscellaneous vintage patterns – along with a few of my own pattern designs and a few actual cloth dolls that I have made.

I sell scanned PDF copies of my originals. I strive for clear, good quality scans. The patterns are available as instant downloads. This allows instant gratification (we all love that!) and, more importantly, NO postage costs.

I try to have as few pieces that need to be taped together before cutting the fabric as possible. I work very hard to manipulate the pattern pieces to fit the pages and still remain the correct size. However, with some large pieces, it is necessary to separate them. I do label these pieces very clearly though to make it easy for you to tape them together.

I offer only instant download patterns on my Etsy site, but if you prefer a copy mailed to you, please visit,, to order. There are also patterns there that are too large for instant download on Etsy. Please Note: To have patterns mailed to you will cost more because I will be using my paper, my ink, and my time. You will also have to pay shipping to have the patterns mailed.

The instant download patterns are all to be printed on regular 8 ½” x 11” paper. To make certain your pattern prints to the EXACT size, follow these 3 steps:
1.) When you click print and the print screen appears, make sure the “page scaling” is set to NONE. 2.) Uncheck “auto rotate and center”.
3.) Then, click the box that says “choose paper source by PDF page size”.

You can find more about this, including pictures to help explain, on the Information page at .

As a helpful hint, I'd like to mention that you can download your pattern to a file on your computer and then print off only the pattern pieces when you're ready to begin making the project. You can follow the instructions along on your computer screen.

Please note: I watermark most of my photographs and pattern instructions with my logo or shop name.

Like us on Facebook to know when new patterns are added, to get helpful hints and tips, and to find out any other new information about Gail's Doll Patterns.

Note: There are no resale rights for my patterns. I do not authorize any reselling of the PDFs I create from my vintage patterns. I have scanned and formatted the original into downloadable PDFs and they are not to be resold. They are to be used for personal use only. As per Etsy's policies.

I hope you enjoy my Etsy store.

When buying any of my dolls (not the patterns), the shipping is free within the USA.

I will ship the cloth dolls by U.S. Mail within 24 to 48 hours after the order has been placed. This depends on the weekend and holidays.

I will ship out of the USA, however, additional shipping will be charged, dependent on the destination. Extra time will be required for your purchase to arrive, dependent on the receiving country and mailing services. Buyer will be responsible for special fees, taxes and customs.

Please make sure that your "Ship To" address is correct. If it comes back to us you will still be responsible for the shipping costs. And we will make you a listing for the 2nd shipping cost.
Additional policies and FAQs
All my vintage patterns are in public domain. You can sell finished products from them, but all of my PDF patterns are copyrighted and are for personal use only. So I ask that you don’t resell the patterns.
