This week I’m going to offer you a FREE printable sewing pattern for making the lovely A-line dress that Mattel’s Stacie® doll wears in the image above. It fits a number of other dolls as well, including:

But the 6″ Breyer Rider dolls wear the dress as a longer garment. Below you’ll find images of the dress on each of the dolls mentioned above, to show you how it fits:

The image above shows the Spin Master La Dee Da 10″ doll wearing my handmade A-line dress. This doll reminds me a lot of the Blythe dolls that are so popular.

Image shows Mattel's Made-to-Move Barbie wearing a wedding dress (handmade with one-shoulder style), Mattel's Tall Barbie wearing a maid of honor gown, Mattel's made-to-move Barbie dolls wearing prom style dresses, and Mattel's Stacie doll wearing a flower girl's A-line dress. All of the dresses were designed and hand-sewn by Chelly Wood, and patterns are available at ChellyWood.com (free and printable sewing patterns for making all wedding, prom, and quinceanera dresses shown in the image). The dolls are seated and standing in an elegant 1:6 scale diorama, displaying their dresses in lovely pinks and whites. The furniture in the diorama is made of wicker. There is a gold-framed classical painting on the wall behind them. In the center of the room, the wicker table holds a porcelain tea set in 1:6 scale. The dolls look at the camera expectantly, and they are elegantly posed as if for wedding photography.

As many of my regular followers know, I’ve been designing dresses for a Barbie® wedding set. The A-line dress for small dolls was specifically designed to fit modern Stacie dolls, but as you can see in the image above, it also fits the older Stacie doll (Barbie’s little sister).

But wait! There’s more! Just look at all the different dolls that this week’s free pattern will fit:

The doll above is Dorothy from the Mego Corp Wizard of Oz doll set. These are very articulated dolls from the 1970’s when articulation was sort of unheard-of in dolls. She was one of my favorite dolls from my childhood collection because of her articulation.

In the image above, you can see that the 6″ Breyer® Rider doll wears the A-line dress comfortably, but it’s a little long on her. Generally speaking, her torso is similar to that of the 8″ Breyer® Rider doll in the image below…

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.
