Looking just as elegant as one would expect, my MTM Barbie models this week’s project in the image above. We’ll be sewing a pair of elastic waist pants. This week’s free pattern is super versatile, though. As you see in the image below, this pants pattern also fits Mattel’s Curvy Barbie:

Image shows a Made-to-Move Curvy Barbie doll wearing a pair of handmade elastic-waist pants and a home-made felt top. She stands in a room with purple wallpaper and a wicker chair. Behind her is a window. Her pants are made of multi-colored fabric designed with stripes and flowers. The felt top she wears has straps made of lace, and the lace embellishes the front of the top as well. The doll's smiling face is framed by shockingly pink hair. The watermark on the image states: ChellyWood.com: free printable sewing patterns and tutorials. This curvy-figured made-to-move Barbie is somewhat rare and hard to find, but the doll clothes patterns from this website (the patterns used to make this outfit) will fit any Curvy Barbie doll.

As you can see, the image above shows the new Made-to-Move Curvy Barbie. She’s kind of hard to find, but there are some of these dolls available in stores. I bought mine at K-Mart in the United States, about three months ago. So there are most likely still some for sale.

The patterns I’m sharing this week will also fit the regular Curvy Barbie as well. Here’s a picture of regular Curvy in my pants and top:

The image shows Mattel's African American Curvy Barbie doll (from the Fashionista line of dolls) wearing a hand-made pair of pants and a hand-made summer-style top with lace straps. She poses with her hand in her hair, in front of a colorful Caribbean city street. The doll's hand-made clothes represent doll clothes patterns that are provided for free on the website ChellyWood.com, and the watermark at the bottom of the picture says "ChellyWood.com: free printable sewing patterns and tutorials." This website offers free printable sewing patterns for dolls' clothes to fit dolls of many shapes and sizes, including but not limited to Barbie dolls in a variety of models.

It really surprised me that this same pants pattern fit Mattel’s Made-to-Move Barbies as well as both Curvy Barbies! But then I got busy trying these clothes on other dolls, and guess what I found…

Please visit ChellyWood.com for FREE printable sewing patterns and tutorials for doll clothes to fit dolls of many shapes and sizes. Here we see an image of the Bumble Bee Character from DC Comics. This doll, called BumbleBee is one of the Super Hero Girls dolls produced by DC. She models the handmade multi-colored pants and hand-sewn felt top which have FREE printable sewing patterns on ChellyWood.com this week. BumbleBee stands in a diorama that looks like a room in a doll's house. The wall behind her is purple, and it has a purple-framed window. There's a wicker chair and table beside her. Light glistens on her blond-and-brown curly hair. She poses with one hand on her hip. The handmade doll clothes include a pair of multi-colored pants decorated in flowers and colorful stripes and a felt top with lace straps. The overlay says, "ChellyWood.com: FREE printable sewing patterns and tutorials."

For Christmas last year, I got a DC Super Hero Girls BumbleBee doll, and as you can see in the image above, this free printable sewing pattern will also fit the Superhero Girls dolls!

Even though these are 12-inch dolls, my pants pattern fits them perfectly. What a nice surprise! The felt top fits the DC Superhero Girls okay, but it’s a wee bit loose on her thin torso. So bear that in mind, if you’re searching for a pattern to fit the DC Superhero Girls specifically, and you happen across this blog post.

In closing, I’m happy to announce that this week’s entire outfit fits vintage Tammy dolls from Ideal as well:

The image shows a vintage Tammy doll (made by Ideal Corporation) wearing hand-made colorful pants and a hand-sewn felt summer shirt. The pants are colorfully decorated with flowers and stripes. The felt shirt has lace straps that embellish the front of the shirt as well. The Tammy Doll has her hair up in a pony tail. She stands in a diorama with a window set into a purple-colored wall. Beside her are a wicker chair and table. The floor is wooden beneath the Tammy Doll's feet. The image has the following watermark: ChellyWood.com: FREE printable sewing patterns and tutorials for dolls of many shapes and sizes.

Tammy dolls were a precursor to Barbie dolls, but their bodies are slightly more curvy than Barbie’s. That makes them tricky to find doll clothes that fit them.

So I was very happy to discover that this week’s free printable sewing pattern for pants, and next week’s free printable sewing pattern for the summer shirt / tank top will fit Ideal’s Tammy dolls.

Come back later this week to download the free printable sewing pattern and to watch the tutorial video that will show you how to make the pants. Next week I’ll post the video showing how to make the summer top.

While you wait for those, remember to visit my Gallery Page, where links to all of my free printable sewing patterns for dolls can be found.

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.
