The last time I went to Walmart, I picked up a few packs of cheap panties (taking care to choose only packs in sizes and colors with several others in stock, since I know first hand what a massive pain it is not to be able to find underwear in your size). Since the fabric is so thin, it’s a GREAT weight for making tiny doll clothes, and some of the colors and patterns are so pretty! My favorites are the two flowered patterns, the light yellow, and of course the fuchsia, which will be perfect for my Feferi dolly! ^^

Making tiny doll clothes can pose quite a challenge. For the average person, it’s not easy to work on such a small scale. I’ll be working in 1:12 scale, and I find that much easier than sewing for people! When sewing on a tiny scale, you’ve got to choose fabrics that are proportional to your doll: lightweight, tight weave, tiny print, good drape. Most doll makers recommend natural fabrics like cotton and silk, though I’ve had great success with stretch charmeuse and peachskin, both of which are polyester.

Ever notice how a lot of the time, Barbie’s clothes look perfectly scaled, but the patterns you buy at the fabric store never seem to come out right? Part of that is because of the material. A large print can dwarf your doll, and thick fabrics will be bulky and will probably not drape correctly. They’ll also be harder to sew and turn right side out. Stiff fabrics that don’t drape well will stick out at odd angles and just plain won’t look right. A tighter weave helps create the illusion of a scaled-down person in a scaled-down outfit rather than a little doll in ill-fitting clothes.

A Hundred Stitches

Every doll I own represents a part of my personality. This breathtaking Frankie is my melancholy, my nostalgia… my depression.
Her body and clothing - apparently poorly sewn together, muted and greying - are a perfect expression of the dark and lonely part I keep as a secret. Still it holds an obscure beauty…

doll ⚡ repainted by the amazingly talented astraldolls
hat ⚡ egg warmer from a local store - I added a bow with blue yarn and a tiny button
wig ⚡ beautiful mixture of teal and grey called “lake water”
dress ⚡ I simply attached a safety pin in the front and at the back for that “ragdoll effect”
bracelet ⚡ repainted Skelita jewely, decorated with blue yarn
tights ⚡ …awesome! I actually based Frankie’s look on these
shoes ⚡ Ugh, these weren’t an easy repaint job! I also removed the heel

Pictures are taken by me! They’re huge, so don’t hesistate to take a closer look! ~(^-^)~
