How do I unzip the file?

What is a PDF file?

What if I accidentally purchase the wrong DIGITAL PATTERN?

A downloaded digital product may not be returned for refund.

I have a pattern I’d like to sell on your site. Are you interested?
No, sorry. We are not a publishing or distribution company. We carry only those patterns and products designed in-house for Doll Stuff by Jana.
Is this the same Jana Lee Beus who designs patterns for Simplicity?
Yes, it is! Although most of the patterns for Simplicity don’t carry the Sunrise Designs logo or the Jana Lee Beus name, you can still find some of her patterns there.
Is this the same Jana that created the Sunrise Designs patterns for children’s clothing and home decor?
Yes, it is! Most of those patterns are out of print now but we’re working on getting them online as downloadable patterns. If you subscribe to our newsletter, you’ll be notified when they are available.
Will you ever have patterns to fit dolls of other sizes? Like the 11″ fashion dolls?
Yes! They are currently in the design and development phase. We are working on them as fast as we can. Please be patient.
I love your products! When will you have something new?
We have over 100 new products in the pipeline and more that are still in the idea stage! We estimate that we will release 2 to 4 new patterns a month. We are working on them as fast as we can. Please be patient.
If you want to be sure you are notified when we have a new release, subscribe to our newsletter.
