So there is this monthly challenge on DoA about basic clothes for your dolls. And I decided to enter with my Marie. She never had really a style, I thought of fitting for her. I am considering which style would fit for her now for a long time. Some nights ago I dreamed of her and she really looked edgy, still with her purple hair – and I found my inspiration: Rhianna!! like here or here. High waisted skirts and trousers, crop tops or crop shirts. Sometimes more elegand and sometimes more fun.
(here she is wearing things I have…not things that fit to her character…)
I found some stretchy fabric in my stock, which all can be combined witheach other, because the colours would match.
The I decided what I want to do with each of the fabrics, which are blue, black, pink wool, pattern blue, pattern pink.
|jacket||crop top – turtle neck||crop top – shirt||crop top – top||skirt||headband||scarf|
|3 different styles: pink wool,
black and blue
|black and pattern pink||black and pattern blue||black and blue||each fabric one skirt||each fabric one headband||black and blue|
Then I craftet all the pattern, for each basic cloth and finally cut everything.
Griselda and Marie were keeping me company, while I worked…
Then I continued with the skirts and man, I cursed… The blue fabric is stretchy like no other fabric I ever worked with. It completely stretched out of the pattern, so I had to adjust it while I sew…. Im mean seriously… what is happening xD
The other fabrics were stretchy, too, but I was able to sew them normally… The blue one… I am still mad at it – haha. But in the end I had 4 pencil skirts and 4 different length. The blue pattern one even has little slits on the side – fancy fancy.
I also sew the first of the tops and put a first impression of an outfit on Marie… I was so HAPPY!!! ❤ ❤ ❤ She is looking beautiful! I will continue with the rest of the clothes soon, so I can show you all the good stuff 🙂
till then thank you for reading and cheers ❤
