Sew a lace and rickrack trimmed skirt and top for 17 inch Barbies w/free patterns @ #DollClothesPatterns

Scroll down to the second set of bullets for the free PDF sewing patterns.

I’ve posted something a lot like this before, but it was in my Wellie Wishers’ gallery of free doll clothes patterns. So the patterns are identical, but this time, I’m showing you that my 17 inch Endless Hair Princess Kingdom Barbie can also wear the exact same patterns.

So please don’t be discouraged when the tutorial video for the blouse takes you to a Wellie Wishers doll clothes sewing tutorial. The patterns are the same, and so are the sewing instructions.

Here we see a photo of the 17 inch "Endless Hair Kingdom" Barbie doll modeling handmade doll clothes, designed by Chelly Wood. This 17 inch Barbie doll's shirt has a square neckline, and its short sleeves are trimmed in both lace and rickrack. There's also lace at the bottom of the skirt. The shirt is made of yellow cotton fabric. The skirt is an elastic-waist pull-on skirt, made from a turquoise blue cotton fabric that has a print of tiny mermaids and sea creatures. The skirt is trimmed in lace and blue rickrack. The Chelly Wood dot com logo appears in the lower left corner of the image, reminding us that the free printable PDF sewing patterns for making this outfit can be found at
