As you can see, this week’s Barbie®/fashion doll wedding dress pattern includes three different bodice styles.
Looking back over the years, I find that my wedding dress, prom dress, and quinceañera dress patterns seem to get the most hits from new visitors to ChellyWood.com. So I thought it might be a good idea to offer some new variations in these types of fancy formal gowns for fashion dolls.
This week I’m going to offer patterns and tutorials for making the lovely (and easy-to-sew) one-shoulder wedding dress, and today, I’m posting the free, printable sewing pattern for making the dress’ one-shoulder bodice.

Because our previous poll shows that most of you would like me to design easy and intermediate patterns, we’re going to use felt for the one-shoulder bodice on this dress.
Felt is really a wonderful fabric for beginners to work with. It’s somewhat flexible; it’s very inexpensive; it doesn’t need hemmed. It’s also a fabric most adults have worked with when they were younger, through 4-H, home economics classes, grammar school, and/or scouts.
Tomorrow I’ll post the skirt pattern.
