Barbie #dolls’ #autumn wardrobe with #free #sewing #patterns @ ChellyWood.com

The image shows Made to Move Barbies with a regular Barbie doll in a fall harvest / garden diorama scene. This diorama photo comes from ChellyWood.com, a website offering free printable sewing patterns for Barbie and many other dolls. This diorama scene has fall leaves, a wheelbarrow full of harvested vegetables from a garden, and a stack of hay bales with an apple cider barrel behind them. In the distance a garden has a river running through it with a bridge over the water. In front of all this, the three Barbies stand holding hands, facing the camera in hand-sewn doll clothes. Their outfits include (first Barbie doll) a white tank top edged in red stitching, a pair of red shorts with white polka dots, and a pair of irrigation boots; (second Barbie doll) a sunflower-printed dress with fluttery sleeves and a gathered skirt that is edged in burgundy rick-rack, having a pinafore of yellow that matches its petticoat of yellow; (the third Barbie doll) wears a handmade bright green felt shirt with green lace straps and green lace edging the top of the shirt along with a lace-edged floral mini-skirt and green go-go boots. The overlay offers the website, "ChellyWood.com" which is a website where you can find free printable sewing patterns and tutorials fo r making each of these Barbie doll outfits.

Do you recognize two of the outfits there? I’ve already posted the red and white shorts-and-tank-top set and the gold-and-burgundy sunflower dress with pinafore. Check out the links to make those cute little fall harvest (or summer) outfits.

In the next two weeks, we’re going to wrap up this fall (if you’re in the northern hemisphere) or spring (if you’re in the southern hemisphere) fashion doll wardrobe by making the outfit on the right (above), which includes a lacy top and a lace-trimmed mini-skirt.

Please visit ChellyWood.com for FREE printable sewing patterns for dolls of many shapes and sizes. The image shows a Barbie doll wearing hand-made skirt and top, standing in a harvest scene with orange fall leaves at her feet, an apple cider barrel in front of her, and a stack of hay bales behind her. The scene in the distance is a lovely garden with a river running under a bridge. This 1:6 scale diorama and the handmade doll clothes are the creation of Chelly Wood of ChellyWood.com, a website that offers free printable sewing patterns and tutorials for making your own hand-sewn doll clothes for dolls that are Barbie sized.

This week we’ll start with the lace-trimmed mini-skirt. Then next week, we’ll create the lace-trimmed top.

Please visit ChellyWood.com for FREE printable sewing patterns for dolls of many shapes and sizes. The image shows a cute Barbie doll wearing hand-made skirt and top separates with a pair of green plastic go-go boots. She walks along a concrete sidewalk with a grassy field alongside of her. Orange autumn leaves a scattered across the green grass, and the doll seems to be walking toward a barrel of apple cider which sits behind to bales of hay stacked one on top of the other. Behind the Barbie doll is a mural of a lovely, lush green garden with a pond or river in the middle of the scene.

Of the three outfits pictured in the wardrobe image at the top of this post, I think this skirt-and-top set is probably the easiest project. In fact, I’d say this outfit is a good starter project for anyone who’s just learning to sew Barbie doll clothes.

So I hope you come back later this week (and next) for the free printable patterns and tutorials.

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.

Please be advised: when I get some time off from my job as a school librarian, I’m planning to develop a new layout for ChellyWood.com, and whenever you redesign something, it’s possible for stuff to get lost! So if there’s a specific pattern you’ve bookmarked because you want to make that outfit, I advise printing the pattern soon. Links may not work quite as well after I redesign my website.

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.

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. You can also write to Chelly Wood at this address. I’m always happy to help my followers find what they need, so they, too, can make amazing doll clothes and crafts.
