Do you recognize two of the outfits there? I’ve already posted the red and white shorts-and-tank-top set and the gold-and-burgundy sunflower dress with pinafore. Check out the links to make those cute little fall harvest (or summer) outfits.

Does that doll’s outfit look familiar? I’m guessing it probably doesn’t, even though it should. Adding embellishments to a garment (rickrack trim, a swatch of lace, bias tape, or embroidery) can magically transform the look of a garment!

You’ve made three or four outfits in different colors and prints … Continue reading #Fall #Harvest Separates for Barbie and Other Fashion #Dolls w/FREE #Patterns @ ChellyWood.com
This week’s free, printable sewing pattern is for making a pair of boxers or summer shorts to fit broad-bodied dolls like G.I.

Yes, Mattel still offers the slender, sleek … Continue reading This week we’re #sewing a pair of #boxer #shorts for male #dolls and action figures @ ChellyWood.com

It’s designed for most 11.5 inch fashion dolls, including but not limited to Mattel’s Barbie, Queens of Africa, the old Spin Master Liv dolls from the 1990’s, the 10 or 11-inch Disney Princess dolls, and many similar-sized fashion dolls. After making this dress, I gave it away to a friend’s little girl. Unfortunately, I … Continue reading Sew a #sunflower #harvest #season dress for #dolls w/FREE pattern @ ChellyWood.com
Isn’t that an adorable harvest scene? This “harvest dress and pinafore” was part of a little girl’s birthday gift that I made. The pinafore is actually a re-design of the reversible hairdresser’s apron pattern that I made and posted back in 2016. (Click here for a link to that project.) This week I’m going to focus on the pinafore, as it can be complicated if … Continue reading #Sew a Pinafore-style #Apron for Fashion #Dolls w/free pattern@ ChellyWood.com
