Yes, today I’m re-posting a pattern and tutorial that I posted a few months back. Again, I’m on vacation with my daughter in Paris, so I think it’s kind of fun to show pictures of dolls in Paris while I’m vacationing there. I hope you don’t mind the re-post.

This dress also fits Mattel’s Curvy Barbie™ from the Fashionista line, along with the Ideal brand Tammy Doll that you see pictured above:

She holds one hand in her hair, and her strappy high-heel sandals match the yellow dress. Behind her is a doll-sized miniature folding chair and a brick wall with windows opening onto a field wherein stands a lone tree.

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.
