Father of the Bride
by Jill Maas

Here is the newest pattern from Jill.

This chap stands about 17 inches tall
when complete and makes a great couple with Mother of the Bride.

Here is what Jill has to say about him:

"A very proud Father of the Bride, dressed to the nines, hired suit, new hair cut and a designer shirt - he's passed his wife's inspection and ready to escort his beautiful daughter! Under threat of not embarrassing anyone in his speech he's feeling relaxed with the help of a whiskey or two and ready to dance up a storm as the evening progresses "

He is tried and tested and has been lots of fun to make, from his suit with tails, white shirt and bow tie, with even a few hidden extras!
There is nothing like a tall silent well dressed gentleman to enhance your life!

Mother of the Bride
by Jill Maas

This Lady stands 16” tall (40 cm). Her body is velour or doe suede, her hair is fur fabric and she has wire supporting her legs and chenille sticks in her fingers.

She has a great profile, an expressive face and just enough sculpting to make her an easy challenge.
Her clothes are made in silk, or she may like a brocade skirt.

“Every now and then there is a special occasion to celebrate; right now I’m into the ‘Mother of the Bride’ theme!"
"I have designed her with that 'last minute’ emotion overload, watching her daughter ‘glide down the aisle’. What an amazing time, hanky ready to dry a tear, relief that everyone has turned up, and behaving, standing with that ‘demur look’ all the while her heart is jumping for joy."

"Wait till the formal part finishes, she has got some dance moves to scare her new son-in-law!" (some are illustrated in pattern!)
"At least her fuchsia pink outfit will show up in the photo’s and she already has plans to wear it again - when her horse races next week!”

City Girls
by Jill Maas

A new pattern from Jill...Here is what she says about it:

I've taught her many times here in New Zealand and she has been my most popular request this year.
City Girls first made an appearance in May of my 2009 calendar.
She is about 45cm ( 17 inches) tall, is an easy project (no hands or legs) but with good design and effect.

These fashion girls, look great in gorgeous colorful cottons or for a totally differnt look use old natural toned furnishing type fabrics, even an old wool blanket for her coat and hat! .

A fun project to use up that handmade felt,or precious scraps of textiles, her coat has just the right place for that one lovely old button that you've kept for years and get creative with her scarf and hat decoration!
Best make two dolls, after all, it's fun having a friend to shop with!

Little Maggie has flown in, landed lightly in her little striped socks and ready to go!

A wee treasure, she is a delight to make, only 14 inches overall.
Her body is doll velour or similar, her socks are striped knit fabric, wings made out of silk and lace for her skirt. The wiring in her body allows her to stand on a window sill,… but point her toes, tilt her head back, lift her arms and she is ready to fly in the breeze!!
(From a nylon thread attached to the loop on the back of her dress and hung from the ceiling!)

So cute, full of personality, looks great dressed in pastel colors, all fun and a quick project.
Makes a great gift.

by Jill Maas

Here is what Jill has to say about this pattern:

The Dressmakers Dummy was first made for an exhibition I held. She stands about 20in tall on a simple wooden base.

Dancing Doris
by Jill Mass

Fun to make, easy clothes, knitted slippers, a girl on the go!

Jill says:   Doris is always thinking of ways to improve herself and gathers her friends around her to form a 'dance class' on Tuesdays in her car shed. The music is turned up and they 'dance as if nobody's watching' from 9 till 10 only stopping for morning tea and a chat!  She is an author of several spine chilling novels, grows pink daisies in window boxes and plays the ukulele.

Doris is about 42 cm high, made from velour, she has wired legs and stands on her own.

Sounds like a hoot to me!!


by Jill Mass

Another great pattern...this one is a quirky  12" angle/ let me have Jill tell you in her own words....

Gertrude has many strings to her bow, guardian angel, seasonal fairy, a confidant (to anyone who will listen) and occasionally freelancing for Hugh someone.
My Gertrude took up residence in my roof space. When I started sewing she made herself known by tangling all my threads and throwing pins one by one over my studio floor. She has become a very trusted and semi reliable

Gertrude can hover, (although not when you are watching), she hovers overhead anytime of the day or night throwing crazy ideas into my head and finding just the right scrapes of fabric, thread or beads to excite me into starting a new project.  When I'm working she manages the coffee pot, she keeps trace of time so I remember appointments and when she sees the need, she colors over the grey
days with shades of flamingo pink and lizard green, and a little daisy yellow.

Gertrude has saves mail from going missing, washing from getting wet and my friends from forgetting me. She plays the banjo, sings jazz and dances the tango.
I'm sure your Gertrude will enhance and inspire you too.

by Jill Mass

Jill's newest pattern can be made up in several ways...try Gardening Harriet with her big brimmed hat or cowgirl Harriet with her cowboy hat.
You'll have great fun with this character doll!  You will need to supply the hat and I think that she would also make a great witch for Halloween!!

A note from Jill
and a note from a U.S. customer Judy Tiller - a great hint!
Jill Maas has a note at her pattern site about weighting her dolls. I use copper BBs, also called copper shot, to add weight to her dolls.I make a little sack for them about 1 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches and pour the shot in, hand sew it tight, and place it in the bottom. I also leave an opening in the back seam and place a circle of cardboard in first then the sack of copper shot. Then stuff around well up to the opening which I sew shut. Works Great!!
Ageing  Angels and Errol:  About the weighting pellets in their base--in New Zealand they are sold by the people who have bear fur and bear making needs--Plastic pellets are NOT heavy enough--they need the heavy weight to stand on their own. Also buckshot or glass sand will work.
Jill Maas does it again with Annie - her patterns are always good quality and I love each one of them!

Price is $11.00 ppd in the U.S.

Maid Aggie
19" tall (approx.)

Aggie was born in Mangaweka, New Zealand.  She has been wroking for wealthy families for 25 yrs. and knows to always keep her ear to the ground and her mouth shut (till she writes her memoirs when she retires!)  Aggie spends her days off rodeo riding, training sheep dogs, (she uses the same method when training children) and riding her Harley.  She loves applie pies and smoke eels.

Aggie is slightly weathered and slightly boring to look at but she has a very interestingly aged body under that dress.  She stands unaided in her very sensible shoes.  "I hope you enjoy making her, there is plenty of room to give her your own personal touch in dress if you so desire".  Jill
