This is the final segment in the slender-bodied dolls’ pirate ensemble. Later I’ll publish the page that links from the gallery to the various patterns and tutorials needed for making the whole outfit.
For now, though, enjoy this tutorial that shows how to make the capri-like trousers / pants that go with the pirate outfit. These pants will fit Project MC2® dolls, Monster High® dolls, and Ever After High® dolls. They may fit other small-bodied dolls as well. If you make them and discover that they fit a doll I haven’t mentioned yet, please name the doll in the comments.
As I’ve stated earlier, I’m going back to work this month, in my paying job as a school librarian. So in August, I’ll be posting a series of tips on doll photography, to allow myself a little time to keep up with my regular job.
If you’re visiting ChellyWood.com for the free patterns, I have over a hundred different doll clothes patterns and tutorials available. Just click on the Gallery Page to choose a doll outfit or craft project that interests you. A couple of links later, you’ll most likely find exactly what you’re looking for!
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.
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:
- You can pin them on Pinterest.
- You can like them on Facebook.
- You can tweet about them.
- Use any other form of social media that appeals to you!
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.
If your question wasn’t answered here, feel free to submit a question. I’m always happy to help my followers find what they need, so they, too, can make amazing doll clothes and crafts!
