15th of each month is the date I link up with Kate, Gun and a whole group of crafters (list of links further down) to make use of those scraps. It’s been more fabric scraps for me this month, leftovers from past clothes-making projects . . . which are ideal when you have a collection of dolls that need clothing, like I do. No photos of actual dolls in this post (so no need to shut your eyes). If you’d like to see dolls modelling the following outfits, you can find them here.
Anyway, time for photos.
A knee-length jumpsuit in brown cotton, with very pretty floral print, plus matching head band, made for a 48cm vinyl doll. This letfover fabric had been in my drawers since 2011, a remnant from a dress-making project for my daughter.
Another 3/4 length jumpsuit, for a 44cm vinyl doll. This is more a polyester cotton. Scraps found in a box I inherited from MIL several years ago. The pattern for jumpsuit is from the July issue of “Modes & Travaux”. Original pattern meant for quite a dumpy 40cm doll, I adapted for my slightly taller, more slender dolls.
A little dress for a 40cm vinyl doll with scraps from a tunic I made myself not long ago. And no, it’s not pattern matched but it does fit the doll, therefore it does the job!
