For those of you who’ve been following my YouTube channel and this website for a while, you might be wondering why the dolls’ faces aren’t shown inside the pattern. That’s something new for ChellyWood.com.

Well, since I don’t own the Mattel Company (which holds the rights to Monster High® and Ever After High® dolls), nor am I afiliated with the Project MC2® show, I’ve blocked out the faces of the dolls to honor their rights to their products. I’m just trying to be a good citizen/netizen. But if you have an opinion about a better way to publish my patterns without impeding the rights of doll companies, feel free to leave a comment below.

This pattern will be used for the Colonial-style shirt that I showed off in yesterday’s post. It will also be used for the trousers that go with the Colonial or pirate costume. If you’re ready to print this shirt and pants pattern, this link may help you get a sharper image of it, and this tutorial will show you how to use Google Docs to print my free doll clothes patterns.

Tomorrow I’ll post a tutorial video, showing how to make the fancy Colonial and/or pirate-style shirt for very slender-bodied dolls like Monster High®Ever After High®, and Project MC2® dolls.

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.) To review my difficulty scale, take a look back at this blog post. (You’ll want to scroll down to read the detailed description of each category.)

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.
