Feel free to add your guesses in the … Continue reading Sew an easy tiny doll purse — no pattern needed! Tutorial @ ChellyWood.com #Miniatures #AprilFoolsDay

Here we see a Mattel Skipper doll looking to her right. She is posed with arms slightly extended. She wears a handmade set of under garments or possibly a swimsuit. The bra is a sporty sports bra style garment with white cotton jersey fabric for the top half of the sports bra and blue elastic for the bottom half of the sports bra. The straps are made of the same turquoise blue elastic as the bottom half of the sports bra. The underpants (or swimsuit bottoms) are made of white cotton jersey fabric with the same turquoise blue elastic waistband that we see in the straps and bottom half of the sports bra. The underpants elastic just barely covers the doll's belly button. These would be considered briefs in terms of under clothing styles.

This photograph shows the Chelly Wood doll clothing designer doll measuring Skipper's arm with a tiny 1:6 scale tape measure. Skipper extends her arm while the Chelly Wood doll looks at the tape measure to determine how long Skipper's arm is from the underarm to the wrist. Skipper stands barefoot in a swimsuit beside Chelly Wood's tiny 1:6 scale sewing desk. On the desk, a Creatable World doll is seated, waiting her turn for measurements. The creatable World doll seems to be wearing a training bra and panties. Their legs are crossed so the CW doll leans back on the sewing table elegantly. Behind them is a dress form, ironing board, and a tiny window. There's also a miniature china hutch filled with fabric. This is clearly a teeny-tiny doll sewing room. All the dolls seem to be having fun as they prepare for a new wardrobe that fits both Skipper and the Creatable World doll. If you'd like to see the wardrobe of free printable sewing patterns that Chelly Wood has designed for either Skipper dolls or Creatable World dolls, please visit ChellyWood.com and click on the 10 inch doll size from the main Home page gallery.

I often get doll clothes requests for doll clothes patterns for vintage dolls. I don’t actually own a vintage Skipper or Skooter, though, so I haven’t been able to help anyone who requests doll clothes for those two dolls. However, I do own the Vogue Craft pattern shown at the top of this page. I bought this pattern in the late 1990’s or early 2000’s, … Continue reading Chelly Wood recommends this Vogue pattern for vintage Skipper or Skooter dolls… #SkipperDoll #DollCollectors
