Sew a fashion #Dolls ball gown and #princess hat w/ free #patterns from

Visit for free, printable sewing patterns and tutorials for dolls of many shapes and sizes. This image shows Mattel's Barbie wearing a medieval ball gown and pointed hat with veil in the Romeo and Juliet style.

This lovely costume is worn by the doll who plays Lady Capulet in my dolly version of Romeo and Juliet. You can create your own version of Lady Capulet’s princess-style gown and cone-shaped, veiled hat by using the free patterns and tutorials provided below:


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.
