This saucy fellow was a custom for someone local. She asked for traditional dress, which I was happy to try out. I think it came out okay, but really doll clothes are the bane of my existence. I love making dolls, but giving them something to wear is another story. I think part of my problem is that I don't have good patterns drafted for all the styles of clothing I want to make. The other problem is just that it's all so small. I hate to admit, but I'm just not that precise of a sewer and those little 1/8 seams and hems do me in. Anyone have a good doll clothes tutorial or tips page?
At any rate, his outfit came out okay, with only one minor error so overall I'll call him a success.
