I recently received a question from a blog follower named Sylvia. She asked, “Do you do Sindy Doll patterns? And also Penny Bright 8-inch doll patterns?”
Well, Sylvia, I wasn’t able to email you. Scroll down, please, to see my response to your very helpful question…
Today’s video is designed to help blog followers answer these kinds of questions for themselves.
On this website, ChellyWood.com, there’s a feature called, #TapeMeasureTuesday, which offers sewing measurements for some of the dolls I design clothes and sew for frequently.
Here are the steps you need to take, in order to find sewing measurements for your doll (these steps are covered in the video also):
- Find the spyglass-shaped search tool near the menu on this site.
- Click on the spyglass.
- Type into the spyglass search bar #TapeMeasureTuesday followed by a space and the name of the doll you want measurements for.
Example: #TapeMeasureTuesday Crissy
If the person reading this happens to be Sylvia, who sent me this question, first, THANK YOU. Your timing is PERFECT! And secondly, I did try to send you an email, but it bounced back. So you may have mistyped your email address in my contact form. Please try it again, as I saved my original email for you.
It’s my understanding that Sindy and Tammy dolls have the same body mold. So if you type #TapeMeasureTuesday Tammy into the search bar, you should be able to find measurements for Tammy dolls. That way you can confirm whether or not the patterns will fit your Sindy.
Along the same lines, my World of Love doll clothes patterns fit 8″ World of Love dolls. Search for #TapeMeasureTuesday World of Love to check out that doll’s measurements and compare them to Penny Bright’s measurements.
Please leave a comment here or in one of the #TapeMeasureTuesday blog posts, letting all of us know whether or not Tammy-and-Sindy and/or Penny-Bright-and-World-of-Love have similar measurements. Thank you!
I’ve been thinking about doing a tutorial on the #TapeMeasureTuesday feature on this website for quite some time, and your email inspired me to get the job done. So thank you, Sylvia!
Taking dolls’ measurements isn’t my favorite past time, but I know it can be helpful to people when they’re trying to find out whether or not a certain doll can wear another doll’s clothes. Recently I’ve kind of quit doing the #TapeMeasureTuesday features because people weren’t visiting those pages.
But maybe that will change now that my followers understand the purpose behind the #TapeMeasureTuesday feature and how it’s used.
Best of luck to you, Sylvia! And thanks again for your timely question!
