Barbie Fashion Packs For Ever After High?

Grab your sewing supplies because today we are transforming Barbie dresses to fit our Ever After High dolls! If you know me, you know I don’t buy doll clothes; I sew them.  It’s not because I have a vendetta against Barbie clothes.  I do it because I enjoy creating.  Plus sewing doll clothes is something I can do in the bed or on the couch when my body feels less than great. However, a couple of Barbie’s new outfits caught my eye. After seeing these Hello Kitty Fashion Packs reviewed by My Froggy Stuff and My Little Doll Corner, I can’t stop imagining Kitty Cheshire allRead The Post

Sewing For Disney Animator Dolls: Belle's Live Action Ball Gown

Oh yes, I finally did it!  I made Belle’s live-action dress for my Disney Animator dolls! This dress turned out so perfect I’m not sure what to say except that I absolutely love it! This project actually started several weeks ago when Sister and I found this Simplicity pattern at Wal-Mart:Of course, we had to have it! I don’t at all consider myself an expert seamstress, and was not sure whether this was designed for someone with beginner to intermediate sewing skills, but it didn’t matter–this envelope was coming home with me and I would find a way to make it work!  Thankfully, even though it looks a bit complicated, the gown was very easy to put together. The bodiceRead The Post

Doll Fashions: Holiday Dresses For Disney Animator Dolls

Welcome to our dolls’ Christmas Fashion Show Part Two! This time our Disney Animator Dolls get to have the spotlight. Let’s start with Tinker Bell and her sweet, Christmas kitty themed ensemble:                   Tinker Bell is wearing a red, knit sweater that has three cats embroidered on the front; black, knit leggings; and a pair of super cute, “UGG” style boots. Remember this sweater? It was the topic of my “Red Sweater Saga” post.  Saved from the brink of craft condemnation, it’s now ready for the world to see! These black leggings compliment Tink’s red sweatshirt perfectly!  I needed a break from Velcro, so I used black knit fabric and anRead The Post

Doll Fashions: Christmas Dresses For Mini And Barbie Dolls

Today we are going to have some holiday fun with a post showing off the Christmas themed dresses I made for my fairy and Disney dolls! Let’s start with a bit of fairy finery: These two fairies may be twins, but their dresses are very different:Tink is wearing a lovely, hunter green, Christmas patterned dress; while her sister, Periwinkle, sports a wintry, snowflake schemed gown. Vidia’s stunning, strapless dress has a red top, and a skirt covered with wreaths and bows.  However, it’s Rosetta who really steals the show!  Her gown is sewn from red, satin fabric then trimmed around the top with white, lacy ribbon, and faux fur at the bottom. *Fun Fact: Read The Post

Have you ever made something that you were extremely proud of, then had a stroke of bad luck that almost ruined your beautiful handiwork? Well, this very thing happened to me just last week. Christmas is my favorite holiday. So, naturally, I’ve been eager to work on some Christmas-y sewing projects. My first project (and the one that almost didn’t make it) was this red, knit sweater: This was originally an old, Christmas shirt of mine that had hardly been worn (let’s just say I don’t look good in red), but I thought it had the potential to be a super cute doll shirt. I just love the little cats embroidered on the front!😻Read The Post

We’re back with the second installment of our Disney Animator doll clothes lineup!  So much fun!! This time Elsa gets the spotlight with her new, extra special dress—and no, it doesn’t contain a single snowflake…..or snowman. Instead of using typical Frozen themed fabric (which I can’t guarantee won’t happen with future garments), I used fabric printed with a few famous fishies! It’s a “Finding Nemo” inspired dress! I was originally going to make a T-Shirt and shorts outfit using Pixie Faire’s “Trendy T-Shirt” pattern designed for AG Wellie Wishers dolls. Like I mentioned in the last post, my DAC clothes are usually made from American Girl patterns that I’ve resized. This works pretty well, but I still end up sewing the garmentRead The Post
