Another adventure in sewing doll clothes...
The free pattern for the skirt came from youcanmakethis.com. Because I used the leather the way I did, I couldn't use the pattern in the intended way. Below I show a diagram on how to alter the pattern.
The free pattern for the shirt came from libertyjanepatterns.com.
The headband and wristlet were my own, I just pieced the leather together with a zig-zag stitch. The headband has a small elastic piece sewn on the bottom (see picture below).
The purse, again was just pieced. I folded up the bottom up on iteself and sewed the sides, then folded the top over. Not rocket science. I sewed in a snap for the closure and used the decorative button to hide the stitches.
|The leather I used was from a swatch ring. It was free and gave me a wide variety.|
|Once you have laid out your material, zig-zag stitch to piece them together. You will have to print 2 copies of the pattern since you aren't cutting on a fold, and lay them out as shown above. Instead of a hem, I zig-zag stitched around the outside to finish the edges.|
