YAY! I’ve designed my first pattern for #TallBarbie! Find it @ ChellyWood.com #theDollEvolves #dollstagram

Image of Mattel's "Tall Barbie" standing in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, wearing a pair of white handmade pants with red seams. Barbie has one hand on her hip and the other at her side. She smiles brightly. She's also wearing a princess-seams shirt decorated with peace signs.  Tall Barbie's features look Asian, and her skin tone is pale. The image includes a watermark that says, "ChellyWood.com" for free printable sewing patterns and tutorials.

Yes, this week I’ll be posting my pattern and tutorial for making these adorable white jeans with red seams. They’re designed to fit Mattel’s new “Tall Barbie™” and any other similarly-sized dolls with 15 cm inseams. Tomorrow I will post the pattern, so you can make these jeans too. Then, on Wednesday, I’ll post the tutorial video showing you how to sew them.

Thursday I’m going to post a tutorial showing how to make an ironing board for your doll dioramas. This is a unique ironing board pattern because the height of the ironing board is adjustable, so it should fit Petite Barbie™, Tall Barbie™, and everyone in-between.

You might be wondering about the peace-sign shirt my Tall Barbie™ is wearing. I’m not 100% happy with this pattern yet, so I’m going to fiddle around with it a bit more before I post it on ChellyWood.com. But don’t worry; that pattern is definitely on the drawing board, and like all my patterns on ChellyWood.com, I plan to offer it for free.

If you’re wondering why I make patterns and tutorials without charging a fee, please visit the “Chelly’s Books” page, and that should explain my general motivations. Overall, I love to sew, design doll clothes, and embroider, and I think it’s important to share my talents with the world, so others can learn to do what I do.

Want to show your appreciation for my free patterns and tutorials? Please do so by likingpinning, tweeting, and/or somehow sharing this video with others. Thanks for stopping by!

Before I go, I wanted to give you another sneak peak at these cute pants I’ve designed for Tall Barbie. Here’s the back view:

She has her back to us, showing the embroidered pockets of her jeans. She's also wearing a princess-seams shirt decorated with peace signs. Her hair is shoulder-length and a dark chocolate color, and her skin tone is pale. The image includes a watermark that says, "ChellyWood.com" for free printable sewing patterns and tutorials.
