Kirsten is one of the three original American Girl dolls. However, she's been retired for a while, and doesn't seem to get much love in the pattern department.

BunnyBear has two Kirsten patterns available:
BunnyBear 1850s Cherie pattern
BunnyBear 1850s Signature Dress
Kirsten's official American Girl patterns can be found at American Girl Playthings.
Kirsten could wear Thimbles and Acorn's pioneer patterns, if you aren't too concerned with accuracy. These patterns are actually designed for Laura Ingalls, who lived much later than Kirsten. Kirsten's birth year is 1845, and Laura's is 1867. Laura is actually closer in age to Addy.
Still, this list is so short that I will list those patterns as well.
Besides, I love them! I look forward to owning all of them eventually, but for now I own the pattern for the Carrie dress and the Mary and Laura dress.
Using the pattern for the mini Charlotte doll, you could easily made a Sari doll for Kirsten if you don't own the American Girl version.

Also, there are patterns for Marie-Grace and Cecile. Although these are from the 1850s, they are much too elaborate for a country girl like Kirsten.They are also too fancy for her economic status.

Overall, there are so few patterns for Kirsten that it seems there is a niche for some talented designer!
