#DIY skirt for Curvy #Barbie® w/ free pattern @ ChellyWood.com #Dolls

Just look at that adorable long shamrock skirt! As it says in the video, this skirt pattern should fit nearly any fashion doll, within reason. The trick, once again, is to measure the doll’s waist for the elastic. That way you can be sure it will fit her waist once the elastic gathers the fabric.

Here’s a link to the pattern you’ll need.

And since this week’s series of doll skirts and skirt patterns honors St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, let me remind you that I’m helping out an Irish author, Kieran Fanning, by giving away a ninja costume in his honor. Click here to learn more about this sweepstakes giveaway.


If you’re searching for something different, 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 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. These 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, 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.

In case you haven’t heard, I’ve 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 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!
