She is dressed to play the part of "Benvolio" in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Behind her is a wall that has been painted to look like arched doorways in a Renaissance setting.

In my dolly version of Romeo and Juliet, I cast Soul from Hasbro’s World of Love dolls as my Benvolio character. Soul is a fabulous little 8″ doll from the 1970’s, and her clothes will fit Breyer™ dolls as well as Mattel’s early 8″ Stacie™ dolls. I’d venture to guess most 8″ dolls will be able to fit into these patterns.

Here are links to my free, printable patterns and tutorials, so you can make Benvolio’s outfit for your 8-inch dolls:

 

If you want to alter this patterns–for example, make the bi-colored pants pattern into a pair of jeans, it wouldn’t be too hard. Just skip the parts of the tutorial that don’t coordinate with the design you’re trying to make. If you have any questions about my patterns, instructions, or about sewing for dolls, in general, just submit a question.

Please be aware, however, that I may not be answering emails until August, as I’m on a business trip to France right now, where I’m doing some doll photography for a doll company. (There will be more news about this later on.) So if you need answers to your sewing questions right away, you’ll probably want to search elsewhere.

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 pinlike, or tweet about my free patterns and tutorials.

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.

And in case you haven’t heard, I have also designed commercial patterns for Lammily LLC. They have some new dolls coming out soon, so you might want to visit the Lammily website to see what they’ve got going on.
