Drumroll…. Here it is! This is my “Jeans and Dress Shirt” pattern for male fashion dolls, and it’s the #1 item on my list of the “Top 15 Downloaded Patterns from ChellyWood.com.”
You may recall that I posted the other part of the shirt pattern earlier this month. Well here’s the rest of it.
The jeans are designed to fit smaller-than-Ken-sized fashion dolls, like Spin Master Liv Doll Jake and similar-sized dolls. However the shirt fits Ken®, Jake™, and even the bulky G.I. Joe® dolls! No wonder this is such a popular shirt pattern to download, right?
This marks the end of my Top 15 countdown. For the rest of the week, I’ll be posting some of my favorite doll pics and such. Then, hopefully, I’ll have time to post some new patterns and tutorials during the second week of June.
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!
