Earlier this week, I gave you the pattern for this shirt. Granted, it can be a little confusing, because it says it’s the pattern for a western shirt, but we won’t be using the sleeves.
Furthermore, as it says in the tutorial, if you choose to make your doll’s shirts out of felt instead of more traditional woven fabrics, you won’t have to hem it at all! So this is a super fun and easy sewing project for kids and absolute beginners.
If you like the skirt shown in this video’s header, it’s one of the fun skirts I made for St. Patrick’s Day (with a little lace added to it in place of the tulle). Here’s a link to that post.
If you’re looking for easy tutorials (esp. for those who’ve just started to sew), check out my playlist 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 use the whipstitch to hem a garment, how to sew on snaps, and even how to design your own doll clothes patterns. But it also has some easy sewing tutorials with free printable patterns too.
Need help printing my patterns? This link will take you to a tutorial showing you how to download my free, printable patterns.
If you’re wondering why I make patterns and tutorials without charging a fee, please visit the “Chelly’s Books” page, and that should explain my general motivations.
And 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.
