Assemble A Gift Kit For Doll Clothes

By November 17, 2012

Follow me on:

If you know a child or adult who longs to experiment with costume, consider making them a gift kit for doll clothing, so they can test out their ideas. Regardless of whether they sew or glue, they can test out classic styles and learn about fit and drape, using small amounts of fabric. The skills learned with doll clothing can be taken to other clothing and costume design projects.

If the kit is for someone who is totally without sewing experience, include an inexpensive doll, and make a custom Torso Sloper Pattern and a custom Pants Sloper Pattern to get them started.

If your gift recipient collects dolls or figures, take a note of the size or scale so you can include suitable prints and trims.
