Actually, this is a re-post of the pattern because I posted it last week for the riding hood portion. However the Victorian bloomers fit a surprisingly abundant number of dolls. Check out the image below:
Here’s a list of all the dolls it fits (that I’m aware of):
- Breyer® Rider dolls
- World of Love dolls from Hasbro®
- Monster High® dolls
- Bratz® dolls / TreeChange dolls
- Barbie® dolls
- Skipper® dolls
- Ever After High® dolls
- Project MC2® dolls and SpinMaster® Liv dolls
- fashion-doll-sized Disney Princess® dolls
- Lammily® dolls
- Momoko® dolls
If you discover that it also fits other dolls, feel free to leave a message in the comments below. Tomorrow I’ll post the tutorial showing you exactly how to make these bloomers (sometimes called “pantaloons”). If you’re in a rush, though, you can already find the tutorial on my YouTube channel, ChellyWood1. (Follow that link.)
Did you see that we have another giveaway posted? Go back to Monday’s post to learn more about how you can win free model horse blankets, as shown below:
Most of my doll clothes designs use a 1/4 inch seam (standard for fashion doll sewing projects), but for smaller doll clothes projects like the 8″ dolls’ clothes, I recommend using a 1/8 inch seam, if you can.
If you’re searching for a specific 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 that are designed to help you make the outfit pictured there.
Need help printing my patterns? This link will take you to a tutorial showing you how to download my free, printable patterns. It’s important to enlarge my patterns to fit a full-sized piece of American computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) without margins, before printing.
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, and/or tweeting about them (yes, you have my permission). 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.
In case you haven’t heard, I’ve 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 also have 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!
