Here’s a preview of this week’s dress. As is my usual fare, I’ll be posting the free pattern for it tomorrow, then I’ll post my tutorial the day after that.

However, if you’d like to get started on this project early, we’ll be using the same pattern we used for the pink “flower girl” sleeveless dress that I posted on February 28th, which looked like this:

Image shows Iris Clops Monster High doll wearing an handmade A-line dress and standing in a 1:6 scale diorama that shows the bust of a musician, a classical painting, and is decorated with a wicker table and chair. On the table is a 1:6 scale porcelain tea set for little dolls. The Iris Clops Monster High doll wears a dress that has been sewn by hand. Overlay offers the sewing tutorials and free doll clothes patterns website: ChellyWood.com and states that this website has free doll clothes patterns and tutorials for dolls of many shapes and sizes.

Visit ChellyWood.com for FREE printable sewing patterns for dolls of many shapes and sizes.

So for those of you who remember that post, you’ll recall that this dress pattern actually fits a whole bunch of dolls. (You can see them wearing it in the Gallery Page.) So here’s a list of all the dolls who can also wear my Celtic plaid dress that Draculaura is modeling in the top image in this post:

It’s going to look a little big on the 6″ Breyer Rider dolls, but it does fit them. Look back at the pink “flower girl dress” preview post to see how it looks on these various dolls.

But this week’s posts are unique because I’ll also be showing you how to use bias tape to make a sleeve cuff, like the one you see on the Celtic plaid dress that Draculaura is wearing.

So come on back later this week to download the free pattern, watch the tutorial video, and learn about sleeve cuffs!

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.

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!
