This week I’m going to share the pattern for my baby doll bloomers. They go with the halter-style dress (or for bigger dolls it was a halter top), and they are designed to fit 12 inch (30.5 cm) baby dolls with a 9 inch (22.5 cm) tummy/belly circumference and a 5 inch (12.5 cm) leg circumference.

Of course it’s possible for them to fit dolls with slightly larger or slightly smaller measurements, as long as you adjust the length of your elastic to fit the dolls of your choice.

Here we see an image of my Vintage Velvet doll (from the Crissy line of dolls) wearing the same bloomers pictured in the image above:

Later we’ll also see how this same pattern can be used to make a pair of shorts to fit the 12 inch baby dolls, 14 inch Wellie Wisher and Hearts for Hearts dolls, as well as my Vintage 16 inch Velvet doll. Here are some previews of the same pattern used as shorts on these dolls:

Image shows the Wellie Wisher doll Kendall wearing a handmade summer outfit made up of a pocket-decorated halter style summer top combined with roomy shorts. She wears blue MaryJane shoes, and she seems to stand atop a concrete base with the Seine River and the Eiffel Tower in the background. Her turquoise blue summer clothes match her blue Mary Jane shoes, and the outfit is edged with bright orange ric rac. An orange satin ribbon ties the halter top in the back. The Wellie Wishers doll's expression is curious as she looks slightly right of the photographer.

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 ChellyWood.com 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.
