I don’t know about you, but I often find myself looking at a doll clothes pattern or outfit and thinking about ways to alter it so that it suits the fabric or the particular doll better. And when I’m making a doll clothes pattern to release on my website I have to sit down and work out which variations I’m actually going to turn into a pattern. I would love to be able to do them all but there’s a lot of work involved in producing a pattern for sale online and then there are all the videos that go with my patterns, so realistically there’s just not enough time!
It’s for this reason that I decided to make a series of videos that show you just how easy it is to alter a basic doll clothes pattern, in this case my 18 Inch American Girl Summer Dress and Cabbage Patch Summer Dress Doll Clothes Patterns to create over a dozen different outfits for your doll. You can also mix and match these alterations to again create even more different outfits! Really, the variations are only limited by your imagination.
The following video is Part 1 in a 4 Part Series that will be released over the coming months. ‘Sew’ grab a cuppa, press the ‘Play’ button and enjoy. If you cannot see the video below, please click here.
