Sewing doll clothes is a great release. Many people enjoy dreaming of cool clothes and outfits that they want to wear or would like to see.
But they would never make them because of expense or usefulness in everyday life. Well if you have a flare for fashion designing and long to tinker with patterns design and sew doll clothes.
When you make my doll clothes, you can sketch out some blueprints with measurements for the doll and a collection of swatches so that you can properly visualize the outfit. Then, when you have the design all hammered out you cut the clothes and begin to sew.
The steps themselves may seem boring and mundane, but when you fit the right clothes to the right doll, they seem to just come to life in your hands. Your little girl will love that they actually look like small people. She will love modeling them, and dressing them up in a great new wardrobe made especially for her.
There is no wrong way to design doll clothes. Choose colors you like, fabric you enjoy working with and design the most outrageous or elegant clothes your heart desires. This will build the little girls doll wardrobe and you will find it relaxing to have an outlet of expression.
And if you don't want to design or if you just don't have the ability to than you can use any of these patterns and just tinker and make adjustments. While sewing doll clothes you can add a bit of rick rack here or some lace there. Mix and match the different outfits and fabrics. Remember handmade barbie doll clothes does not need to look “homemade”.
