Sewing Doll Clothes

Busy in the studio designing doll clothes and shoes for my 12 inch cloth doll.

 I started with a bodice block pattern and sewed up a mock-up in cotton to check the fit.   She also received a pair of fitted pantaloons.                                                                                   


I also made her a cotton batiste blouse that gathers around the neckline with a drawstring closure. Nice but it will be too bulky for what I want her to be wearing. So I'll save for another doll.

 I made an baby pink cotton batiste under dress that will close in the back. I actually had blue in mind for the dress and ended up with pink. 

I made an over dress in a cotton floral print fabric. I've had this for years and finally put it to good use. The sleeves fit very snug around her arms and I should have allowed a little more ease room. Even though the clothing could be removed, this isn't that type of doll where the clothes are to be taken on and off. I just like to sew "real" clothing at times instead of the applied costumes.

Thank-you Mary (Chip Butter). I'm glad you love it when I talk sewing, I guess it's my favorite subject.
