As a child, my favorite doll was Soul from the World of Love doll collection, from Hasbro. I loved this doll for many reasons. When you really love a doll, you tend to enjoy sewing for her, and that’s the case with my World of Love dolls. I’ve designed quite a few outfits that fit them, and only later discovered that they also fit other … Continue reading The World of Love Dolls and a Series of Free Doll Clothes Patterns #DollStagram #VintageDolls

As As I said yesterday, I don’t approve of the body image projected onto little girls by the Monster High® and Ever After High® dolls, but since I’ve gotten requests for doll clothes to fit these strangely-proportioned dolls (and since I decided to cast a Monster High® doll as the apothecary in my stop-motion version of Romeo and Juliet), I’m going to confess something: Breyer® doll … Continue reading Free sewing patterns for #MonsterHigh, #EverAfterHigh, and many more #dolls @ ChellyWood.com
As I said in yesterday’s post, the World of Love doll clothes seem to fit my daughter’s Breyer dolls (the dolls that can be purchased to go with Breyer Horses), so today I’m re-posting a pattern I posted a while back. This pattern may be even more useful to folks who sew doll clothes for Breyer dolls, even though I originally designed this costume to fit … Continue reading Free Printable #Sewing Pattern for Making #BreyerHorse #Doll Clothes
For anyone who’s new to this website, I’m Chelly Wood, a soon-to-be-published author, high school English teacher, and seamstress. Together with my two teenage daughters, I am in the process of creating a stop-motion version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet for YouTube, starring re-designed dolls like Barbie, Ken, Momoko, and Tammy Doll. Today’s post will introduce you to my oldest daughter, Ardie, who goes by Emily Teapot … Continue reading Who’s Playing #Benvolio in Theater of Yore’s Upcoming #StopMotion Version of #RomeoAndJuliet?
This vest pattern was specifically designed to fit my World of Love doll (from Hasbro). However, I don’t doubt it would be easily adapted for dolls like Stacie (Barbie’s little sister), and small dollhouse dolls. I’m certain that it’s too small to fit Blythe or Momoko dolls, and I am also sure it’s too small for Skipper. Once again, if you enjoy my free patterns … Continue reading Tutorial for #Sewing a Renaissance Doublet (Vest) for #Miniature #Dolls

I bet you’re wondering, “What are ‘World of Love’ dolls?” Well here’s a link to show you what the original dolls (from Hasbro) looked like. I’ve had folks ask me if these dolls have a similar size and body type as a Stacie doll. The quick answer is no. But will their patterns fit Stacie dolls? Some will, probably, but the pants I’m making this … Continue reading #WorldOfLove #Doll Clothes #Patterns and #Tutorial
I’ve tried the boots on my Momoko Dolls, and they definitely fit her. I’m told that if they fit Momoko, they will probably fit Blythe dolls too, but I don’t have a Blythe doll to try them on. Leave a comment, please, if you know anything about that size comparison. To use this pattern, simply copy/paste it into Microsoft Word (or a similar word processor … Continue reading Easy #DollBoots Sewing Pattern for #MomokoDolls, #Blythe, and World of Love Dolls
As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, my daughters and I have been designing sets, costumes, props, and more for an up-coming production of Romeo and Juliet with Barbie dolls (and similar sized dolls). Today I’m bragging about the costume I made for my World of Love “Soul” doll. She’ll be playing the role of Romeo’s close kinsman, Benvolio.
