Here we see an image of Momoko™ (the doll from the Sekiguchi company) wearing the lovely blue and gold gown from yesterday’s photo of the four-poster bed. Momoko appears to be feeding a Breyer™ horse or touching its muzzle. I cast Momoko as Juliet in my dolling version of Romeo and Juliet, which is still in production.
Of course I designed the dress Momoko™ wears in this image, and I’ve shared those free patterns and tutorials with you below. You may not realize that Momoko™ doll clothes can also be worn by Pullip™ and Blythe™ dolls, but I’m told they can. So if you collect any of these three dolls, you should be excited to see the free patterns and tutorials I have in store for you.
Granted the veil probably won’t fit Pullip™ or Blythe™ dolls, but it’s always neat to find free, printable doll clothes patterns that will fit any doll! I would venture to guess there are even some BJD’s (ball jointed dolls) who can wear this dress pattern.
So here are some of my patterns to fit these dolls:

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 pin, like, 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.
