Free printable #Sewing pattern for #Dolls’ #SummerClothes @ ChellyWood.com

Please visit ChellyWood.com for FREE printable sewing patterns for dolls of many shapes and sizes. Image shows a Free Printable Sewing Pattern for Curvy Barbie or Regular Fashion Doll Pants with Strappy Summer Top: Also fits Ideal Corporation's Tammy dolls and DC Comics' BumbleBee and other SuperHero Girls (Super Hero Girls) dolls as well as Made-to-Move Barbies. This pattern includes a pattern for a pair of elastic waist pants and a strappy summer shirt (like a tank top). The pattern has a "Creative Commons Attribution" symbol on it, which means anyone who uses this pattern should also tell where they got the pattern by sharing the pattern on social media websites. This is a free pattern for dolls' clothes, but please let people know where you got this pattern if and when you use it. That helps advertise the website so the website's owner gets a small kickback for ads.

As I said in yesterday’s post, this free, printable sewing pattern fits Mattel’s Curvy BarbieMTM Barbie, Made-to-Move Curvy Barbie, DC Comics’ Superhero Girls dolls, and vintage Tammy dolls from Ideal. Wow! That’s a lot of different dolls that can fit in this free pattern!

For a more detailed version of this pattern, click here to copy/paste or download.

Now if you’re looking for a pants pattern to fit the Lammily line of dolls, please be aware that this pattern is both slightly too long for Lammily and slightly too tight at the bottom of the pattern, making it hard for Lammily to put her foot through the bottom of the pants. The good news is that it does fit around her middle.

So if I were to alter this pattern to fit Lammily, I’d simply cut off the hem area of the pant leg and cut my fabric 5 mm. wider at the bottom (in the foot/hem area). That would probably do the trick!

I plan to post a video tutorial showing how to sew these pants tomorrow. The summer top tutorial will most likely post next week, as I have a little catching up to do on my Gallery Page still.

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.
