Here’s the wedding dress tutorial to go with the patterns I posted on Tuesday and Wednesday. For your convenience, here are the links to those free printable patterns for a fashion doll one-shoulder wedding dress once again:
For those of you who are familiar with my difficulty scale, I’ve marked this pattern with two flowers, which means this is a pretty easy pattern for beginners. The hardest part is probably sewing on snaps and gathering the skirt fabric. Other than that, most of the stitches are straight.
These free patterns are designed to fit the average fashion doll, like Queens of Africa™ dolls, Spin Master Liv™ Dolls, Mattel’s Barbie®, and similar-sized dolls.
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:
- 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!

Chelly, I am trying to make the 1 shoulder wedding dress with a lace overlay on the bodice, but I am having trouble as I do not see instructions in your video for this. Also I want to do a lace overlay on the skirt. Please advise. I am having so much fun with your free patterns and am making Skipper clothes for my granddaughter. Thanks
Hi Elaine. Thanks for reaching out. Here’s the link to the tutorial for the version with the lace overlay.
From the Barbie gallery of patterns, you would want to look for an image of a doll in a pink dress with white lace overlay on the bodice. You may be looking at the tutorial for the wedding dress (on this page) but it uses felt without the lace overlay. For the lace overlay, you want to find the pink one.
A lot of times the written instructions will give you helpful tips too, so it’s not a bad idea to read through the page. But do reach out, using my contact form, if you need additional help.
Glad you’re having fun with all the free patterns! I have fun providing them!
