This week I’ll be showing you how to make this glittery holiday skirt that has been designed to fit a number of different dolls. As you can see in the image above, it fits curvy dolls like Lammily™ and Curvy Barbie®. But take a look at the images below. It also fits the 16 to 17 inch Tonner™ fashion dolls and my new 17 inch Barbie® that my family gave me for Christmas.
This skirt is perfect for bringing in the new year. Your fashion dolls can wear it to their fashion doll New Year parties and special events.
So keep an eye on ChellyWood.com this week. I’ll post the free pattern for this skirt, plus the tutorial that shows you how to make it.
I hope everyone will enjoy sewing dolls’ clothes throughout the upcoming 2018 year! What better place to find your sewing patterns than ChellyWood.com?

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:
- 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!
