#Fall #Harvest Separates for Barbie and Other Fashion #Dolls w/FREE #Patterns @ ChellyWood.com

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! So let’s say you have an old stand-by pattern that you already know how to sew.

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.

1st Day of Fall: Sew a Doll Dress that Suits the Season @ ChellyWood.com #autumn #Thanksgiving #etsy

Since it’s the first day of fall today, I thought I’d revisit this already-been-posted tutorial that shows you how to make the pinafore warn by Juliet’s nurse in my upcoming stop-motion video of Romeo and Juliet. Her costume is one of the easiest to make, and it’s very versatile. She looks great without the apron and bonnet as well.   To sew her dress, use the … Continue reading 1st Day of Fall: Sew a Doll Dress that Suits the Season @ ChellyWood.com #autumn #Thanksgiving #etsy
