I realize I posted this one last week too, but there are lots of elements to this one little ol’ pattern, folks! Check it out–last week I taught you how to make the pirate hat. This week I’m teaching you how to make the vest. Next week I’ll show you how those adorable little Colonial shoes are made.

Some of you have been anxiously waiting for me to get Romeo and Juliet ready for viewing. Well, I’m still working on putting the whole thing together, but almost all of the filming is done. (For those of you who don’t know anything about Romeo and Juliet, be sure to check out that link.)

Later this week, I’ll be posting an update of some of my most basic patterns from the Romeo and Juliet costume creations. Those early patterns–the ones I made when I first started this blog–are a little sketchy. I’d like to re-post those old patterns with updates to their instructional videos (as needed) and clearer directions on the patterns themselves. You’ll get the first glimpse of that plan as this week comes to a close.

My Gallery Page is 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 offers a tutorial showing you how to download and print my FREE patterns using Google Docs. (For the older print-a-pattern tutorial, which uses Microsoft Word, click here.)

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 scant 1/4 inch seam (4 mm to be exact).

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. My patterns are now available through “Creative Commons Attribution.” This means that I created my patterns (and therefore I own rights to them), but I’m willing to share them with everyone who will tell people about my website.

Here are some helpful ways to tell the world about my patterns:

Are you new to sewing? I’ve got a 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, for those who are new to design and alterations.

In case you haven’t heard, I have actually designed some 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.
