These are matching sets I made for two 7 1/2" dolls of mine. (The dolls so small you could easily hold one in the palm of your hand). It is tricky sewing this small, but the challenge of doing so draws me to do it. The little poodle skirts are lined and their little shirts are really bodysuits so that they wouldn’t come untucked. The little “Letter Sweaters” were made from anklet socks, which was just light enough in weight to pull off the looks. The sweaters are embellished with felt letters and hand embroidered boullion roses. The little poodles on the skirts are made of felt with over 100 hand done french knots to give them that “curly” look. I made their socks from nice form-fitting lycra.
It is nice to know that you will not need yards and yards of fabric for doll clothes, but special care must always be taken to use the lightest weight available to reduce bulky seams. And if you make a mistake, hey…..at least you didn’t ruin yards and yards of fabric……LOL!
What do you think of these summery styles?
