For my regular followers, this is the last of the three tutorial videos that go with Tuesday’s free pattern. For newcomers… welcome! This tutorial shows you how to make a sleeveless summer party dress to fit Spin Master Liv dolls. If you’ve just arrived, you’ll need the free printable pattern:

As the tutorial video explains, this pattern will fit many fashion dolls, including Barbie, Disney Princess fashion dolls, and yes, the Spin Master Liv dolls of course!

During the Independence Day holiday here in the USA (where I live), I recently made some new patterns for Wellie Wisher/Hearts for Hearts Girls and 18″ American Girl dolls, so be watching for those free patterns… They’ll be posted some time soon!
Remember, it’s always kind to show your gratitude for my free patterns and tutorials by sharing them on social media! For ideas about how you can help, look in the “Additional Information” section below. Thanks!
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.
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:
- You can pin them on Pinterest.
- You can like them on Facebook.
- You can tweet about them.
- Use any other form of social media that appeals to you!
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.
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.
