As you can see, the new “Tall Barbie” is only slightly taller than my Liv Doll (from Spin Master), but significantly taller than Momoko (from Sekiguchi). When she arrived earlier this week, I was so excited, I couldn’t sleep in, even though I had the day off! I got up at 5 AM and started designing patterns for her! And yes, I’ll be offering my FREE Tall Barbie patterns right here, on ChellyWood.com, just as soon as they’re complete.
The shirt Tall Barbie wears in the image above is just a prototype. I usually expect a “fail” when I first design something for a new doll. Like building a Rube Golberg Machine, you’ve got to expect there to be a slight learning curve before you have ultimate success, and as you can see, the raglan sleeve top I made for Tall Barbie doesn’t quite fit her.
However, it did fit my Liv doll perfectly, as shown in this image:
So this week, I’ll be posting my patterns for the flat shoes that fit Momoko, Liv Dolls, Tall Barbie, and, yes, of course they fit Skipper too. I’ll also post this pattern for a raglan-sleeved tee shirt to fit Liv dolls. And as usual, I’ll have tutorial videos to accompany both the shoe pattern and the raglan-sleeved T-shirt.
As far as Tall Barbie goes, be patient! These things take time. Once I’ve got a pattern I’m happy with, I’ll post it for everyone to enjoy. And yes, when my Petite Barbie and Curvy Barbies arrive, I’ll definitely post my sewing patterns for them as well.
If there’s something you guys really want, be sure and leave a request in the comments. Would you rather have pants patterns? Shorts patterns? Dress patterns? Long skirts or short? Let me know what you’d like me to design. Until I get orders for more Lammily doll clothes designs, I’m free to design whatever my followers request!
