#Sew pants and a #summer shirt for Barbie #Dreamtopia Endless Hair #Kingdom 17″ #Dolls w/free patterns @ ChellyWood.com

Please click here to find all the free doll clothes patterns and tutorials you’ll need to make the outfit shown: (blog post scheduled for 5 July 2018)

Can you imagine my surprise when I discovered that my regular-fashion-doll-sized felt shirt pattern also fit Barbie Dreamtopia Endless Hair Kingdom 17″ Dolls? Granted, without the embellishment at the bottom, it looks more like a crop top, as you can see in this photo. But it does fit!

The pants or jeans shown in the image above were originally designed to fit my Tonner doll.

Anyway, here are the patterns and tutorials you’ll need for sewing the outfit shown in the image above:

The shirt in the image above has bias tape and other embellishments, but I would warn that any time you add embellishments to felt, it loses some of its flexibility. I recommend creating a simple felt shirt to try the pattern out first and see how it goes. Then, if you want to add embellishments to a second shirt, you will feel confident about experimenting with that.

Do you enjoy my tutorials and free sewing patterns? Please share them! Doing so brings more viewers to my little website, and that helps me fund my projects with just a wee bit of pocket money. So please sharepinlike, etc!

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.
