Can a Curvy Barbie wear Tressy doll clothes? #DollClothesPatterns #SewVintage

Yes, this blog post gives you one more fashion option for your Curvy Barbie! The outfit shown above was part of an ensemble I put together for a little girl I know. As you can see in the image below, I re-created the ruffle blouse from View 2 of this Simplicity Tressy doll clothes pattern 5731. To give you a little history, I found this … Continue reading Can a Curvy Barbie wear Tressy doll clothes? #DollClothesPatterns #SewVintage

Can a modern Made-to-Move Barbie wear “Tressy” doll clothes? #DollClothesPatterns #SewingProjects

Please take a close look at View 2 in the Simplicity Tressy doll clothes pattern #5731, in the image above. I was very curious about this frilly little blouse that the doll is wearing in View 2, and I especially wondered if Tressy (a 12 inch doll made by American Character, Inc.) could clothing swap with my Made-to-Move Barbies. So to nobody’s surprise, I sewed … Continue reading Can a modern Made-to-Move Barbie wear “Tressy” doll clothes? #DollClothesPatterns #SewingProjects

With a close-up photo of Made to Move Barbie's Bermuda shorts from the back, we can see the double-stitching detail around the pocket, the fact that the tank top is lined with a burgundy-on-white print cotton fabric, and the tank top closes at the back with red Velcro. The words that slant across this image sideways say, "make room for a pocket." The ChellyWood.com logo appears in the lower right hand side of the image.

A sewing tip: something to think about when you add a pocket! #SewingTips for #DollClothesPatterns

Yesterday I did a blog post showing you how I made a pair of Bermuda shorts from my Simplicity 7928 doll clothes pattern, along with my own reversible tank top pattern, which is, of course, free on this website. As I said yesterday, I’ve found that I can learn a lot by sewing other people’s patterns, and I especially love to take other people’s patterns … Continue reading A sewing tip: something to think about when you add a pocket! #SewingTips for #DollClothesPatterns

In the middle of a quilted frame, Simplicity 7928 craft pattern (for making Barbie and Ken doll clothes) is shown, with a bright blue arrow pointing at View 2, which shows Barbie in a Hawaiian shirt, a summer swimsuit top, and a pair of Bermuda shorts.

Sew a pair of Bermuda shorts with vintage Simplicity 7928 #DollClothesPatterns for #FashionDolls

Today’s project was part of my adventure in sewing some of my vintage patterns, in combination with some of my own patterns. You’ll remember that I made this adorable ensemble for a little girl who lives in my area: See those Bermuda shorts in the foreground? They came from my Simplicity 7928 pattern, from my collection of old doll clothes patterns.

Within the square frame of a quilted image, we see a photo of a Made to Move Barbie wearing a handmade kilt-style wrap around skirt, made of green plaid fabric, side-by-side with the image from the cover of Simplicity pattern 8281 from 1977. The real doll and the drawn image from the pattern are standing in identical poses, with feet spread slightly apart and hands at their sides. Both wear a tee shirt with the wrap skirts.

The image above shows the Simplicity 8281 vintage sewing pattern from 1977, and I have to admit that I’ve been sort of obsessed with the skirt in View 5 of this pattern for quite some time.

Here’s how it turned out, and I must say I’m … Continue reading Make a doll’s wrap skirt into a kilt for St. Patrick’s Day @ ChellyWood.com #FreeDollClothesPatterns #StPatricksDay

The image shows a Teresa doll from Mattel wearing a handmade quinceanera dress made of pink cotton with an overlaid pink tulle layer that uses a crisscross gathered rucheting method of making the skirt quite full. Also, the bodice is dotted with tiny white beaded flowers and there are matching tiny white beads where the tulle of the skirt's top layer has been gathered. The overlay says, "free patterns" and reminds us that this dress can be made using the free PDF sewing pattern and tutorial video found at Chelly Wood dot com.
