Yesterday I showed you a preview of my fashion doll quinceañera dress, which is designed to fit Mattel’s Barbie®, Spin Master Liv™ dolls, Momoko™ dolls, Queens of Africa dolls, and similar-sized fashion dolls (11-inch to 11.5-inch).

I’ve actually posted this skirt pattern once before, when I posted my super-easy one-shoulder wedding dress patterns and tutorials. But we’ll be using this same skirt pattern for the quinceañera dress this week.

Tomorrow I’ll post the updated pattern for the bodice. It may look a lot like the wedding dress that I posted a couple of weeks back, but this week’s quinceañera dress is actually a notch harder on my difficulty scale, receiving 3.5 flowers. It has petticoats and a decorative top layer of tulle over the skirt, in addition to the lace overlay on the bodice, so it could be tricky (but not impossible) for those of you who are new to sewing.

As far as what’s up-and-coming… I have had lots of requests for dinner jackets for Ken dolls (and similar-sized male fashion dolls). I’ve got some ideas brewing in my mind as far as how to make a dinner jacket for Ken that’s fairly easy.

I’d like to create a full wedding set of doll clothes for Barbie, Ken, and maybe a flower girl, and then I will begin addressing the requests for bigger dolls’ clothes (i.e. American Girl, Hearts 4 Hearts, etc.) that came about after I polled my regular followers. So hang in there! I have lots of neat things right around the corner, here at ChellyWood.com!

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. You might want to visit the Lammily website to see what they’ve got going on these days.

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!
