This week I’m going to post a couple of complete outfits that use this and one other pattern, which I’ll post tomorrow.
I’m putting together these “complete outfit” posts to culminate in a new “Gallery” page, which will offer links to the corresponding patterns. Hopefully this will be a more organized way for visitors to my site, to find what they want.
The collection of patterns I’ve created has become so large, I’m starting to receive more and more emails saying, “I can’t find what I want.” So in response to that, I’m going to spend some of my summer months re-organizing patterns I’ve already created. Hopefully this will make it easier for everyone to easily locate all the patterns that are needed to create a single outfit.
Meanwhile, I don’t mind receiving those emails at all. In fact, I love to hear from you! So if there’s a pattern you’re struggling to find, don’t hesitate to submit a question, and I would be happy to send you the pattern you’re looking for via email.
Before you print the pattern shown above, 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 is comparable to mine in size.
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.
