Preview of Upcoming #ValentinesDay #DollDress Tutorial w/ Free Pattern from ChellyWood.com #DollStagram

Images of two Barbie dolls and one Liv doll wearing pretty red dresses for Valentine's day. Overlapping URL says "ChellyWood.com: free printable sewing patterns and tutorials"

Visit ChellyWood.com for free printable sewing patterns to fit dolls of many shapes and sizes.

Last week I gave you the free patterns and tutorial you would need to make the dress on the left. This week we’ll use the same two patterns to create the dresses on the right and in the middle.

For these dresses, you’ll need the pencil skirt pattern and the flouncy skirt pattern. (Use those links to help you get the patterns you need.)

On Tuesday, I’ll share the tutorial for the plaid dress; then, on Wednesday, I’ll share my tutorial for the Liv Doll dress in the middle. You’ll notice the patterns include an adaptation on the bodice. Liv Dolls are slightly smaller in the chest than most Barbie dolls, so I’ve included a cut line for Liv Dolls on the bodices.

As you may recall, you must enlarge my patterns to fit a full-sized piece of American computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) before printing. If you’re using international printer paper (A4: 210 mm x 297 mm), you’ll have to make a few adjustments. These designs use a 1/8 inch seam. If you have any questions about the patterns or their matching tutorials, feel free to contact me, using my “Submit a Question” form. I’m always happy to help!

All of my free doll clothes patterns can be found on this page, and this video tutorial can give you a few tips and pointers about how to print my patterns.

For anyone who’s interested, Newsweek recently ran a story on the “Curvy Barbie” and her other new friends. For this story, Newsweek contacted my literary agent and asked her if they could interview me. It was quite an honor! You can read their story at this link.

If you like my free patterns and tutorials, please show your appreciation by doing one of the following: like my pattern 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. Thank you!
