Let’s face it. Barbie® has been an astronaut, architect, paleontologist, and teacher. She has served in the military, served as an ambassador for world peace, and she has been a candidate for the presidency since 1992. Why wouldn’t she vote? She’s an educated, worldly-wise individual, isn’t she?
I hope you get out and vote today too! Your voice counts.
I’m not usually a very political person, myself, but I do believe in the power of the People. Which is why I decided to post this patriotic dress and scarf set for Election Day–today!
Here are all the patterns and tutorials you’ll need to make the dress and scarf shown above:
Well, I guess that’s all for this election year. Don’t forget to vote, everyone!
If you’re searching for a different pattern, have a look at the Gallery Page. That’s the easiest way to search through all of my patterns to find what you want. Each image on the Gallery Page takes you to links for 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.
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!
