Yes, today I have another new pattern to share with you. I’ve never posted this one before, but I must say this is a relatively easy dress to make. It’s the dress Lady Montague is wearing in my Barbie/dolly version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. If you’d like to see a preview of my upcoming stop-motion video of the Shakespearean classic tragedy, click here.
So how do you make a doll dress like the one pictured above? Download this skirt pattern and this bodice pattern, and print them. Then follow the instructions in this video tutorial.
Don’t forget that I’m giving away a free summer wardrobe for Barbie! If you haven’t signed up for that, you should!
Just a couple more things to note: when you print my patterns, it’s always friendly and kind to like it on FB, tweet about it, and/or pin it to your Pinterest page. That way you’re helping to spread the word that these free, printable sewing patterns exist.
Also, you must enlarge the pattern to fit a full-sized piece of computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) before printing. My designs use a 1/4 inch seam (standard for fashion doll sewing projects). If you have any questions about piecing this costume together, feel free to contact me, using my “Submit a Question” form. I’m always happy to help!
