Behind the scenes, I’m creating a series of classes that will teach you how to design your own doll clothes.
The first of my classes, “How to Alter Doll Clothes Patterns,” is currently available through C&T Publishing’s Creative Spark platform. Click on the link provided to learn more about my own classes and the other wonderful courses you can take on the Creative Spark platform.
This first class will teach how to alter doll clothes patterns, and today’s brief video gives you a quick overview of what you’ll learn if you sign up for it.
As I say in the video, I’m super excited about offering this class!
If you haven’t done it already, I recommend that you sign up for the Creative Spark newsletter, so you won’t miss out on the big announcement when each of my classes goes live.
I’m sending out a big thank you to all of my friends, cohorts, and followers who’ve encouraged me to build this class. Your support and encouragement means the world to me!

I signed up the first time you said to do so and have yet to receive a single newsletter from them. I did however purchase a book from C&T Publishing back in November and now I do receive their newsletters or sales flyers. So please let us know when we can register. Thanks
Yes, once my class is finished and available to the public, there will be plenty of announcements on my YouTube channel and here on my website. Hang in there… The class is really CLOSE to done!
Chelly, update on the newsletter. I just received my first Creative Spark newsletter today from C&T Publishing so I am set. Eagerly awaiting your class.
YAY! Thank you for the confirmation.
The class is in its editorial review stage, so I’m just waiting for the editor to make a few changes before it becomes available. I’m excited about this! And I hope the class turns out to be all that my followers (including you, Judy) have anticipated.
Happy 2022, and thank you for leaving a comment.
I just watched your video and I have already been successful in enlarging patterns on my printer. The 24″ RH doll has no additional clothes but I used free RH patterns & enlarged them 200% to get a reasonably good fit since the body shapes appear to be very similar for both 11″ RH and 24″ doll. Of course the knit patterns work better due to stretch but I am looking forward to seeing your method. I also did successfully with 11″ Barbie & 28″ BFF patterns since I have a Walmart laser printer.
Ooh! Good job!
How accurate would you say your enlargements were? Did you find any glitches along the way?
I was really surprised how well the RH patterns fit. I only used muslin for the woven pants & skirt and an old white tee shirt for a knit top. Of course you must use an opening since her head is like 3 times the size of her body and her hips twice the size so there is no pulling up from her feet, but I used safety pins. For BFF I only enlarged and placed up to the doll since I purchased some knit clothing from Amazon to give to my GD who now has two BFFs. I still have two with me for models, one has the removable shoes.
Hi Chelly, just wanted you to know it’s 6:04 pm CST in Louisiana and C&T publishing had a sponsored ad on your doll course on Facebook. Was I surprised, yes! But this is how I get a lot of my information even before they are on websites. Facebook is not the best place anymore but it does get the word out to a lot of people. Here’s hoping the curious come take a look at your course. Judy
Oh how exciting! Thanks for letting me know, Judy! That was really thoughtful of you.
