We’re still having fun making doll clothes for St. Patrick’s Day here at ChellyWood.com, and just look at how cute Skipper looks in that little top and skirt…!
To make this simple, easy-to-sew felt sleeveless shirt and elastic-waist miniskirt with tulle, please click on the following links for the free patterns and tutorials:
- Here’s a link to the skirt’s tutorial
- Here’s a link to the free printable skirt pattern
- Here’s a link to the felt top’s tutorial
- Here’s a link to the felt top’s free pattern (you’ll only use the bodice portion)
That’s it for this week. Come back next week to see a whole new outfit for St. Patrick’s Day–one that I designed in 2018.
Also, did you know I have lots of helpful tutorials on everything from how to hem a garment to how to shop for fabric? Some of my older posts can be really helpful too. Here’s one that addresses the question: Do Vintage Barbie Patterns Fit New Barbies?
To see these and other helpful tutorial videos, consider visiting my YouTube channel, ChellyWood1.
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.
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!
