This week I’m going to share very basic patterns and tutorials for making the outfit shown above. As many of you know, Ever After High® and Monster High® dolls can wear most of each other’s clothes, so here’s an image of my Ever After High® doll wearing the outfit shown above:
So there’s my preview for the week ahead. I’m going to give you the free sewing patterns and show you my tutorials for making elastic-waist pants for dolls with 15 mm inseams like the Ever After High® and Monster High® dolls.
It’s also time to announce the winner of the Breyer® Horse Blanket sweepstakes giveaway! Congratulations to Rolling Creek Farms for winning the drawing! If you’d like to see a video of the drawing, Emily Teapot has posted it on her Instagram. Thanks to everyone who participated. 🙂
Rolling Creek Farms, I got your comment and sent you an email for confirmation. We’ll be mailing your model horse blankets on Monday. I hope you have tons of fun with them!
If you want to win something on ChellyWood.com, check out the “FREE Stuff” button in the top menu. I have another giveaway coming up some time soon, so watch for that.
If you’re searching for a 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) without margins, 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. 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.
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!
