Image shows Mattel's Ken doll wearing a traditional Kwanzaa hat with a green geometric-patterned shirt and mustard yellow pants. The female fashion doll standing beside him is a "Photographer" doll from the Lammily doll company. She has a curly afro hairstyle, and she wears a hand-made poncho with a colorful African-style print. Her skirt is red with a sparkly overlay of tulle. Behind them, on the wall, is a painting of Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, and the furniture behind them consists of a wicker loveseat and a dark wood china hutch (which houses both elegant pieces of china and a collection of books). The dolls appear to be in close contact, with the male Ken doll placing his arm lightly around the female Lammily doll. Overlay says, "ChellyWood.com: free printable sewing patterns and tutorials."

This document is a free printable sewing pattern for an apron that will fit most 11.5 inch dolls. The apron can be used as a pinafore, as it does wrap around a doll's waist and tie at the back, but the straps of the apron are fixed in place, much like a full-dress pinafore. This apron has functional pockets and is also available to make as a reversible apron. It will fit dolls in the size range of Barbies, Liv Dolls, Momoko dolls, Queens of Africa, Francie, Midge, and many similar-sized fashion dolls. This apron comes with a free tutorial showing you how to make it as a pinafore to be worn over our "harvest" style sunflower dress. Visit ChellyWood.com to get the free tutorial videos and the pattern for the dress as well.

It’s the same pattern that we used to make the reversible hairdresser’s apron (published here on ChellyWood.com in July of 2017).

#TallBarbie and Endless Hair #Barbie #dolls’ measurements
