Yes, I realize this pattern was posted last week, but just in case people missed it, I wanted to make sure I re-post the patterns before I show you how to make the shirt and jeans that are offered in these patterns. Here’s the second of the patterns you’ll need for this week’s sewing projects:
Okay, now that you have the patterns, let me remind you that the pants/jeans will most likely only fit Spin Master’s Jake doll from the Liv collection (and maybe some very small-waisted ken dolls). The shirt will fit everyone from Ken, to Jake, to GI Joe, but if you’re making the shirt for GI Joe, make sure you try the sleeves on him periodically, while sewing, to check the sleeve’s ability to fit over his large hands.
Feel free to pin, like, or tweet about this pattern. (You’ll find those links will take you to my various social media pages.) I honestly just want to make sure doll dress makers everywhere get a chance to see that my free sewing patterns exist and are available to the general public. So please SHARE!
If this isn’t the pattern you’re looking for, perhaps you’ll find the one you want on my free patterns page. But if you still can’t find what you want there, feel free to submit a question to me directly. Remember that you need to enlarge my patterns to fit an American-sized sheet of printer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm), without margins, in order to ensure that the pattern will fit your doll.
Need help printing my patterns? This link will take you to a tutorial showing you how to download my free, printable patterns.
I’ve also got a series of tutorials for the beginning sewists on my YouTube channel. It includes video tutorials showing you how to do a basic straight stitch when sewing by hand, how to use the whipstitch to hem a garment, how to sew on snaps, and even how to design your own doll clothes patterns, just like I do!
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.
