#Sew summer clothes for #Barbies w/ free #Sewing pattern @ ChellyWood.com

ChellyWood.com = free printable sewing patterns for dolls of many shapes and sizes. This image shows two fashion dolls wearing hand-made shorts and sleeveless, tank-top-style shirts.

To make the outfits shown above, you’ll need to print this Summer Wardrobe pattern. You can follow this YouTube tutorial to learn how to make the shorts shown in the image above. (The shorts are quite easy to make.) And you can follow this YouTube tutorial to learn how to make the tank top, which is a little trickier because I designed it to be a lined shirt.

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, before printing. Feel free to pin, like, or tweet about my free patterns and tutorials. If you can’t find a specific pattern, just submit a question to me directly.

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 playlist 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, for those who are new to design and alterations.

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.
