For your free patterns and tutorial videos, please scroll down to the second set of bullets.
It has been a long time since I’ve posted anything related to my Romeo and Juliet with Dolls stop motion video, so I think I’m due to post more of these patterns.
In the past, all of these patterns were available here, but since they are some of my earliest posted patterns, they were only posted as JPG images, not PDF documents. I’m still working hard to try to get all of these patterns converted to PDFs for easy download.
Please excuse any hand-drawn patterns related to my Romeo and Juliet stop motion video. Back in those days, my patterns and my blog were really just a personal journey thing.
Also, my tutorial videos were made using a cell phone (not a modern one either) and some very clunky software. So bear with me as I revive these old tutorial videos. I’ve learned a LOT since then about photography and videography!
Lastly, I wanted you to see this whole costume from various angles, so you can really tell that this project is not for the beginners out there. However tomorrow I’ll post something a little easier from the Romeo and Juliet video collection.
I realize that I NEED to finish putting together my stop-motion video of Romeo and Juliet With Dolls. I will get to that… eventually.
But for now, here’s what you’ll need, if you want to make this challenging “Three Musketeers” style costume: some solid flannel fabric (for the hat and the coat’s lining), some solid colored cotton for the bi-colored trousers and the outer part of the jacket, a hook-and-eye closure for the jacket front, a printed fabric for the tunic, and a decorative feather for the doll’s cap. Oh, and you’ll need some Dritz snaps.
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
