This is a REPRODUCTION of a Vintage 1950s pattern to make doll clothes for your 14" tall Betsy McCall Doll. In addition, this pattern also fits other 14" tall dolls that have measurements as follows: 7 1/2" chest, 6 5/8" waist, and 8" hips. This pattern makes a Dress with matching Coat & Sun Hat; Pajamas; Robe; Slip and Panties. 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 Betsy McCall Doll started out as a paper doll character around 1951 to help sell sewing patterns. In 1952, the Ideal Company started making the Betsy McCall Doll as a 14" size doll. In 1957, the American Character Doll Company started manufacturing the dolls in 8", 14", 20", 22" 29/30" sizes. The Uneeda Company made a 11.5" tall Betsy McCall Doll as well. Betsy McCall was a hugely popular baby doll and was made for years and has made a new appearance now being manufactured by the Robert Tonner Company. Due to her popularity, patterns were made so that mothers and their daughters could make additional outfits for these darling dolls. The Betsy McCall doll was made several sizes by several companies. Patterns were made for her in sizes: 8", 11.5", 14" and 30" and I have a large assortment of these patterns available. This pattern was originally created August 1, 1952. The copyright for this pattern has expired and it entered the public domain Jan 1, 1981.
Current Shipping Special: US SHIPPING is FREE!!! It helps me if you pay for all of your purchases at one time (Paypal charges a per transaction fee, so it saves me money if you can pay for them all at once.) Remember, you can purchase any number of patterns and US shipping is FREE regardless of my cost!!!
I SHIP WORLDWIDE!!!
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING (including Canada) is the actual cost. Shipping is calcuated by weight and each pattern weights something different. Most orders will fit into a Flat Rate envelope, so that is typically the maximum you will pay. As of January 2013 a Flat Rate envelope is $23.95 to most locations. In the case of very large orders or several doll clothing patterns, it could be more. If you are concerned about shipping and would like an exact quote for multiple items, then please email me a list of the patterns you are interested in purchasing.
I do combine International orders to save you on the shipping costs. In order to receive your shipping discount, you can send me a payment request through eBay when you are done shopping, or just wait. I send combined invoices through eBay on a daily basis with the discounted shipping.
All shipments are automatically insured!!! I guarantee your package will arrive or I will reship it at my cost. Remember international shipments (including Canada) take longer to arrive. Occasionally this can even be 6-8 weeks.
I always try to ship as soon as possible. My handling time is 1 business day (business days are Monday through Friday except for holidays when the post office is closed.) I live on the west coast and do my eBay work first thing in the morning - if your payment is in by 8am, then your order will ship that day.
I guarantee the quality of my copies for as long as I am selling on eBay - not just a few days or a week, but for as long as I am here!!! So, you can buy with confidence.
I absolutely guarantee that my copies are the BEST QUALITY you will find on eBay. My copies are clear and readable. If you ever find a piece of a pattern that isn't clear, I will remake it for you (at my expense, of course.)
I offer a LIFETIME guarantee on the pattern copies that I make and sell. I will ALWAYS correct any errors that I make. No sale is ever final and I will do everything reasonable to make sure that you are a satisfied customer. eBay has always been really good to me and I am really good to my customers in turn.
