Just look at my rail.....
- Put a new 26" open ended zip in a jacket
- Shortened a dress
- Taken a dress in on the sides
- Shortened the sleeves on a suit jacket
- Put new elastic in a pair of trousers
- Shortened 3 pair of gents trousers and
- Put a new zip in a pair of jeans
I was able to borrow Phoebe's new dolly to measure her properly and here she is modelling the first out fit I've completed.
The top is all fully lined and they have to be made with just 1/4" seams throughout plus I like to overlock seams so they are probably the best made dolly clothes around.
I've since made a pair of turquoise cord trousers and a shiny, stretchy top to wear with them.....can you imagine making the top? It has gathered sleeves and being stretchy it really needed all my patience to make it but I'm sure the effort was worth it.
I have now tied a piece of elastic around it to see if it would be tamed a little. :-) :-)
I'm not sure what it will look like on the dolly but I'm sure it will make the girls giggle.
That's all from me for today. If you leave me a comment I will do my best to pay you a return visit. Hope you have a great week.
