Here’s the tutorial I promised! Now you can make a ghost costume to fit those tiny dollhouse-sized dolls and/or Chelsea® dolls or Polly Pocket®, or any of those other little teeny-weenie tiny dolls.
Pay attention to the details on the eye-hole creation. I flubbed up when I made my prototype. The eye-holes are just a wee bit too high on this ghost costume. It will probably fit another doll just right, but I think you need to custom make the eye holes to fit whichever doll you’re designing the ghost costume for. There are clearer instructions on how to do that in the tutorial itself.
The pumpkin candy basket is next, so check back with me tomorrow. I think I’ll re-post that pattern (so it’s easy to find) and then post the tutorial on Friday.
Need help printing my patterns? This link will take you to a tutorial showing you how to download my free, printable patterns.
Please note: you must enlarge the pattern to fit a full-sized piece of American computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) before printing. My designs use a 1/4 inch seam (standard for fashion doll sewing projects).
If you’re wondering why I make patterns and videos without charging a fee, please visit the “Chelly’s Books” page, and that should explain my general motivations.
In case you haven’t heard, I have also designed commercial patterns for Lammily LLC. They have some new dolls in their line, including a new male doll, so you might want to visit the Lammily website to see what they’ve got going on.
I’ve also got a series 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 gather fabric, how to use the whipstitch to hem a garment, how to sew on snaps, and even how to design your own doll clothes patterns, just like I do!
