1/6 Scale Sewing [Update: 17th April '17]

They're too sexy for their clothing - but they have to wear them anyway! Did you buy it? Did you make it? Who cares - let'm strut their stuff here!

1/6 Scale Sewing [Update: 17th April '17]

Because I felt like sewing, and wanted to attempt to make a collar

Image

I know the collar looks on the larger side for 1/6 scale in the picture, but IRL it's honestly not too bad? The sleeves are just beyond elbow length, and the skirt of the dress hits the top of her knee. She quite likes it, and honestly, I'm kind of proud of having managed it with as little fabric as I had left, and from just sort of ... throwing a pattern together out of nowhere. Fully hemmed and Velcro down the back. So... yeah.

I like it! And I think she does too.

Thank you both! I decided to go back and re-do the collar a bit because it was annoying me. I'm happier with it now. I also re-did the Velcro on the back and now she doesn't need the ribbon belt. Also-also, I re-hemmed the sleeves to make them look a bit tidier.

Image

I also made two dresses from the same style of pattern for a Made to Move Barbie (renamed Pippa Pentangle) and my Elphaba (which is Casta Fierce but sssh, she's Elphie.) This was a pattern I mocked up myself using the measurements of the dolls and just plain drawing paper. Sleeves were part of the pattern but attached to the main bulk of the dress because I am rubbish at inserting sleeves so... yeah

Image

Biggest challenge here was getting Elphie's to close properly - the measurements are correct but due to that doll being particularly curvy, it likes to gap a little. Luckily it's not noticeable. Pippa's ribbon belt has been exchanged for a black one to match her black hair tie. I need to try to get shoes for her. (Also I need to make witches hats. Because.)

The collar looks a lot better now, more defined. Good job!
