#FREE Skirt #Pattern for 17″ or 16″ #Dolls @ ChellyWood.com

Please visit ChellyWood.com for free, printable sewing patterns for dolls of many shapes and sizes. Image shows the 16 inch Tonner doll wearing handmade doll clothes, including a simple white sleeveless blouse and business-like skirt. She leans against a fencepost with a pastoral scene including a field, barn, and tree-covered mountain in the background. The doll's hair is kinky and auburn-colored, which reminds the viewer of the rusty-color of the barn behind her. The sky is a rich shade of blue.

This week I’m going to post my FREE printable sewing pattern and tutorial for making the blue business skirt that you see in the images above and below. These photos, BTW, were used in my “Doll Photography” series. If you’re curious about them, visit my YouTube channel to watch the videos offering tips on great doll photography!

The sleeveless summer top shown in these images also has a free, printable sewing pattern that fits 16″ fashion dolls like my Tonner™ doll, 17-inch dolls like my FibreCraft™ doll (shown below), and quite possibly the new Endless Hair Kingdom™ 17-inch Princess Doll from Mattel’s Barbie®.

I’ve already gotten a few questions about whether or not these patterns will fit the Endless Hair Kingdom™ 17-inch Princess Doll from Mattel’s Barbie®, and honestly, I don’t know whether or not they actually fit her. (Although, I suspect that if my doll clothes patterns fit the FibreCraft™ doll, they probably also fit the new 17-inch Barbie® as well.) I’m going to ask for this new doll from Mattel™ for Christmas this year, though, so I can try my already-made doll clothes on her. I’ll get back to you in 2018 with what I discover.

Meanwhile, if anyone tries my patterns out on the new 17″ Barbie®, let me know what you discover by leaving a comment. If you are cruising through old posts and it’s after January of 2018, it would be wise to search through my Gallery Page for images of the 17″ Barbie®. I’ll likely post pictures of her in the clothes I’ve made on the Gallery Page, if they do, in fact, fit her.

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 (demonstrating how hard or easy a pattern is by the number of flowers displayed), 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:

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!
