  Today’s free pattern for a Barbie-doll-sized dress may look familiar to some of my regular followers. That’s because I posted it last spring as the “Springtime Flutter Dress” pattern.

This week’s “Sunflower Harvest Dress” version uses the same pattern, but we’ll be making it with a scalloped-edge petticoat and cap sleeve. … Continue reading Free #autumn #dress pattern for fashion #dolls @ ChellyWood.com

The image shows Chelly Wood's hand holding a delicately hand-stitched dress made of burgundy fabric that's dotted with little yellow sunflowers. A yellow petticoat dips out from under the full skirt of the dress, and the dress's rickrack edging forms a wavy scallop along the division line between the dress itself and the petticoat. The dress has very short cap sleeves. The petticoat, too, has a scalloped edge, which has been formed by attaching rickrack to the underside of the petticoat. This handmade dress will fit Barbie and most 11.5 inch fashion dolls of similar size and shape.
