Well, I mostly draft from scratch, which is a really fancy way of saying I squint at a piece of fabric, eye my doll, grab my scissors and hope for the best! I've also started making paper patterns so I can recreate similar styles. The one thing I did research an actual pattern for was the collared shirt, I found a basic pattern on Puchi Collective, which I've taken as an inspiration.
While the dolls clothes do take a little extra time and thought because of scale issues, I find that I love making them so much more, and if I really screw up big time, which happens often enough..., there's so little invested, fabric-wise, that it's no big deal. It's a win-win situation!
I wish I could say I had the patience to make these sized for myself or other humans, but I just love the challenges and benefits of such tiny creations. I do enjoy sewing for myself too, and maybe one day I'll find the time to design on a larger scale...
I'm afraid that, just like any human model, Nerineke only gets to keep a smattering of the things in which she poses, most have been listed on Etsy in a valiant effort to justify all the money I routinely spend on fabric,
Well, I got mine through The Valley of the Dolls, but it does pay to shop around. If you're lucky, you can get one on eBay for a good price, but then you also run the risk of receiving a doll who has been loved on a little,
Nerineke is very stylish! The Eternia is not the most popular of Pullips, but I think she's by far the most classic beauty of them all, and as you can tell, I'm not partial at all,
