As some of you know, I went to Paris over the summer to photograph dolls on location. While I was there, I bought a cool poster of Monet’s “Bridge Over a Pond of Water Lilies” painting. I simply affixed the poster to a piece of foam board to create the backdrop in this image. (I thought those of you who enjoy doll photography might appreciate a tip on how to create a similar diorama.)
Yesterday’s post was a lot like this one, but I want to make sure all my followers know that the Spin Master Liv Dolls and the Project MC2 dolls can swap clothes! So although this seems like a re-post of yesterday’s project, I’m going to link my gallery page’s Liv Doll version of these patterns and tutorials to this page. That’s why I’m sort of re-posting.

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. It’s always friendly and kind to show your appreciation for my free patterns and tutorials by liking them on Facebook, pinning them on Pinterest (yes, you have my permission), and/or tweeting about them. You’re also welcome to add any of my YouTube channel‘s videos to your playlists. Please visit those links for easy access to my patterns, tutorials, and blog posts.
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).
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!
