I will have a new niece in a month so I’d gotta get prepared:) Oh, the joy!
I am starting to research doll clothes making and I found some interesting tips. I am only doing this because my first attempt was rather not so happy. I think I made better Barbie clothes when I was ten so I got a little mad.
But, I found out that it’s not the same when sewing for small dolls and here is a list:
- Don’t twist the hem 2 times, just ones, just clip the edges or burn the edges if the fabric allows it. (remember to wash afterwards)
- Choose the tinyest stiches you can and take into consideration hand sewing.
- Use small buttons or snaps. I noticed it is rather hard to sew tiny velcro bits, but not impossible.
- Choose thin and small pattern fabrics.
- Have fun:>
This are some nice clothes people made. Click on the pic to get to the auhor: )
In the end, this is what I wish to make for my niece 🙂
Let’s see if I still have the skill: )
