I don’t really consider myself to be an particularly good dressmaker but I can cobble a dress together….just! I don’t make clothes for myself that often I just tend to adapt Charity shop buys which i enjoy so much better. The great thing about making dolls dresses though is that you don’t have to use a pattern. Just hold the fabric up against the doll, cut out and sew. If its too big cut a bit off and sew again. Also the doll always seems to be very happy about what ever I make them.
All the EveFolkyFlo dolls that I’m making at the moment will have removable dresses. I do this because I like the owner to see the painted underwear underneath which is always fun. I also like it that my dolls are not just an Art doll to look at but a tactile dress up doll for grown up children (adults).
