Sew a baby #dolls dress w/free #dollClothes #patterns @

Here’s the tutorial video showing you how to sew the baby doll dress that I showed you in Monday’s post. I suppose it wouldn’t hurt to re-post the links to the patterns you’ll need as well, so here they are:

For anyone who’s wanting to use the pattern for your vintage Velvet doll from Ideal, don’t worry; I’ll post an updated tutorial video later on, featuring Velvet in the same outfit.

We’ll also need patterns and tutorials for making the bloomers. That’s coming soon too!

If you enjoy my free, printable sewing patterns and video tutorials for making doll clothes, please show your appreciation by telling the world about them on social media! (See helpful social media links below…)


Additional Information:


Some of my followers have wondered what motivates me to give my patterns away for free.

First of all, I’m a librarian by trade. Librarians love free stuff! We believe that the more a person knows, the more enriched their life will be. So it may sound kind of crazy, but I want to become a sort of library of free patterns that help people learn to sew doll clothes.

If you’d like to learn more about my motives, feel free to visit my Chelly’s Books page.

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).

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.

    1. Hi Denise,

      I do have a couple of different cape patterns for 11.5 inch fashion dolls like Barbie/Ken. Please go to my Gallery page and look through all of the images until you find the cape you want. Click on it and click again on the link provided under the image. It will take you to the page with all the patterns you need to download and the video you’ll want to watch to understand how to make the cape you’ve chosen. Best of luck!
