The pattern we’re learning about today is McCall’s 2686 doll clothes patterns for fashion dolls.
It has three different styles of coats that will fit Barbie and other fashion dolls, which is what makes this McCall’s Barbie-sized patterns stand out among the others.
View A offers a long fur coat; view B shows how to make a shorter winter coat, which would work well with furs, felt, or wool; and view C shows how to make a long style of business jacket, which seems to be coming back into trend these days.
But also, look at that beautiful wedding gown with puffed sleeves and ruffles! Gorgeous! What little girl doesn’t want to play with a “princess dress” like that?

Most of the commercial patterns I display and talk about here on ChellyWood.com are also available for sale on eBay. However, if you’ve never purchased a pattern on eBay before, it’s a good idea to read the article I wrote called, “Tips for Buying Used Doll Clothes Patterns on eBay.” It will save you time, money, and will likely prevent buyer’s remorse.
And by the way, if you use the links I’ve provided to make your eBay purchase, this website will receive a small commission, which helps fund the ChellyWood.com website, so I can continue to provide you with all the free patterns and tutorial videos offered here.
