I designed the outfits in this post for fashion dolls with particularly long inseams, like my Fashionista Tall Barbie™.
The shirt pattern includes a long-sleeved version, which is shown below:
Oddly enough, the pants pattern is printed on the same page as my ironing board pattern. So below, I’m giving you links to the shirt pattern, the pants pattern, the ironing board pattern, and tutorials for making each one. If you wish to make the short-sleeved shirt, just cut out the pattern for that shirt, but follow basically the same directions as you would for making the long-sleeved version.
And here are the patterns and tutorials you will need:
- Tall Doll Jeans/Pants Pattern
- Tall Fashion Doll Jeans/Pants Tutorial Video
- Tall Doll Shirt Pattern (includes a skirt pattern too)
- Tall Doll Shirt Tutorial Video
- Ironing Board Tutorial
If you have any questions about my patterns, instructions, or about sewing for dolls, in general, just submit a question.
Please be aware, however, that I may not be answering emails until August, as I’m on a business trip to France right now, where I’m doing some doll photography for a doll company. (There will be more news about this later on.) So if you need answers to your sewing questions right away, you’ll probably want to search elsewhere.
Remember that you need to enlarge my patterns to fit an American-sized sheet of printer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm), without margins, before printing. Feel free to pin, like, or tweet about my free patterns and tutorials.
Need help printing my patterns? This link will take you to a tutorial showing you how to download my free, printable patterns.
I’ve also 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.
If you’re wondering why I make patterns and tutorials without charging a fee, please visit the “Chelly’s Books” page, and that should explain my general motivations. Overall, I love to sew, design doll clothes, and embroider, and I think it’s important to share my talents with the world, so others can learn to do what I do.
And in case you haven’t heard, I have also designed commercial patterns for Lammily LLC. They have some new dolls coming out soon, so you might want to visit the Lammily website to see what they’ve got going on.
