Tips and tricks for beginners learning to sew: What if doll clothes don’t fit? @ ChellyWood.com #SewingTips #LearningToSew

The dress at the top of this post was supposed to have long sleeves. In fact, I was using my own “candy corn party dress” pattern, which you can see below, but the pattern didn’t fit! So this is a little bit embarrassing! After I attached the cuff to the dress’s sleeve (see image below) and sewed up the sides, I tried the bodice on … Continue reading Tips and tricks for beginners learning to sew: What if doll clothes don’t fit? @ ChellyWood.com #SewingTips #LearningToSew

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.

So I recommend searching for modern Skipper patterns, if you’re sewing a wardrobe for Creatable World dolls. Vintage Skipper dolls have different measurements, … Continue reading Creatable World Doll Sewing Measurements (Comparing Them to Skipper) @ ChellyWood.com #CreatableWorld #TapeMeasureTuesday
