This week I’m posting a fancy wedding dress pattern that’s free to download and print from my Doll Clothes Patterns page. But before I do, you’ll need to also know how to make the shift (an undergarment) that goes beneath the fancy wedding gown.
These patterns and this tutorial are the first step in making Juliet’s wedding gown (used in my stop-motion film of Romeo and Juliet), which is shown here. Tomorrow and Wednesday I’ll be posting the patterns for the outer gown.
As you may recall, you must enlarge my patterns 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!
And don’t forget: if you go back to this post, you can sign up for a free summer wardrobe for Barbie-sized dolls, handmade by yours truly. There’s no catch. I just want people to know about my website; that’s all. So 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.
