ATTENTION BLOG FOLLOWERS: Today’s blog post is part of the new 2019 website renovations. I’m working behind the scenes to make it easier to find the patterns you want.
If you’d like to make one of the outfits shown in this gallery, just follow these directions:
- Click on the photograph of the outfit you’d like to sew.
- This will take you to a larger image of the photo.
- Beneath the larger image is a link to a blog post for all the free doll clothes patterns and tutorials you’ll need to make that outfit.
Be advised that you may be redirected to a page that looks like it’s for a different doll. Scroll down for more information on this matter.
I have been very hesitant about designing clothes to fit Monster High dolls, due to concerns that many women in the online doll community have expressed: What kind of message do these inhumanly-thin-bodied dolls send to little girls?
I’m still on the fence about this issue because the Monster High TV show generally expresses very body-positive concepts in their story lines. I plan to make a blog post that opens this discussion, right here on ChellyWood.com, in the near future.
So all of the doll clothes you see above were first designed for a different doll, not Monster High dolls.
When you click on the image, it may take you to a page that shows you how to make the outfit for a Breyer Rider doll or Mattel’s Stacey doll. But as you can see here, these doll clothes also fit the Monster High dolls.
If I’m missing a pattern you’re searching for, please submit a question. This is also a great way to make suggestions and requests, but please be aware that Chelly gets lots of requests.
Behind the scenes, though, Chelly Wood is working to write and publish a book about her easy techniques for doll clothes pattern designs, so you can learn how to design your own doll clothes too. Please follow this blog for updates on her book and its publication information.
