This is what I have been working on recently — designing clothes for my dolls. Granted, my sewing skills are far short of spectacular. The skirt was the first thing I designed and made up a pattern for, this was a trial run and it turned out well save for a few small flaws (it’s a little too tight) that were worked out in another skirt.

The shirt, however, has a few really major problems and once I haven’t been able to bring myself to work on it again. First, my stitching is all over the place and that’s something I think will come with a little more practice. I had some troubles attaching the velcro in the back (I am hoping adding a few extra panels will fix this). Finally, the bust area gave me all sorts of problems. The ruching in the front is a disaster and it ended up fitting awkwardly (again I am hoping the extra panels will fix some of that).

Any advice or suggestions will be greatly appreciate!
