Here you can see a preview of the lovely lace dress I’ve designed for Chelsea®, Barbie®‘s little sister. It looks more difficult than it actually is. Like the others in the “Easy-Sew Projects for Kids” series, the bodice of this dress is made with felt, which means you don’t have to hem the neckline.
My plan is simple: today I’m showing you what I plan to help you make this week. Tomorrow I’ll post the video. The pattern is already available, since I posted it on Tuesday, August 23rd. With the video, I’ll offer another link to that patter, to make it simple for you to find an download.
Later this week, I’m going to post some DIY diorama projects. These are re-posts, but hopefully they’ll inspire some of you to come up with some fun diorama ideas of your own.
If you have any questions about my patterns, instructions, or about sewing for dolls, in general, just submit a question.
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.
