Making Doll Clothes

Last week you said you wanted to know how to make doll clothes. Here it is!


The other dolls were getting a little jealous of all the attention Meredith was getting, so this week Cora is my model. She's not wearing her hairpiece here because I wanted to measure the shoulders.


To ensure a good fit, trace around your doll's shoulders and body when making clothes. Cora was extremely embarrassed about having her photo taken without clothes, so I tried to blur it as much as possible while still showing where I drew the shoulders of the outfit.


Here is what the paper looked like after tracing. 


Now you fill in the neck and hemline, and add details. I don't have time to finish the outfit tonight, but hopefully I can show it to you on Sunday.

What do you want to see next, and who do you want to model?

  1. How do you make a bedroom? You should have Kenna as a model too.

  2. I wasn't able to win the last contest you did for a paper doll of choice, but I would love to see how you can draw Maru and Friends. I had asked for Maru, Jamie, and Tanya. My top 3 fave dollies. :-D

    Thanks. Teresa.
