My first poppet is a bit bigger than all the other poppets I've made also, and it looks like the patterns will fit her perfectly.  I don't know if it was a difference in the fabric (that one was slightly more stretchy than the others), or if I stuffed her a lot tighter, or a combination.   Huh  Can't wait to make some clothes, and I think a new poppet is coming soon!  It seems I can't go long without having to make another one. 

On another note, the poppet pattern has made my 13 year old daughter want to sew.  I made her a poppet a while ago, and she wants to make one herself now!  Of course, she doesn't know how to use the sewing machine...

This may be a problem. The poppet I'm using for my model is not made of Alova suede. And you do know that the seam allowances are included, right?
What was it you printed out?

OOOOOOOH You guys!!!! This is goign to be the hardest thing! This is going to be the hardest doll I have ever had to give up!!!! Yeah, my partner already knows she is getting a Poppet! But as far as the details and theme is a suprise!!! She is sooooooooooo........*sigh.... beautiful! She told me her name. And it is temporary until Always Inspired gives her a more suitable name. But she totally looks like the name she spoke to me! Would it be giving away tooo much to tell you guys her temporary name? Grin

Sophia is so pretty. I love her hair and the outfit.

Craftewoman or anyone that has make some of her patterns.

When you print them out, if you "fit to page" are they the right size for do you have to adjust the pattern size?

I have the swap fabric picked out and I'm ready to make it, I'm just a bit afraid I'm going to make it and then not fit! Tongue
Yes, fit to page is the right size.
Really? I've been printing them set on "actual size from dpi" And they work great. A bit snug if I sew to far in. But thats my own fault! lol. I have issues sewing straight lines if I"m not careful.

Yes, okay. That sounds right. most of them are done on a piece of copy paper. I guess there are some that don't quite fill the space though. Maybe that's one that you would not want to do fit to page. I don't remember which ones those are, so just do like Eliea says.

MK, don't ruin the surprise! We'll see her soon enough.

Everybody, meet Bunny (who is not a rabbit, but is a standard poppet; she's just Bunny).



Here is her post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=226229.0

I've got the jeans pattern figured out. They look awesome. The only problem is there's umpteen pieces, and I'm not sure if I can explain how the all go together.
I guess I'll just do my best. Do you think that if you looked at a pair of jeans, with all of the pieces in front of you, you could figure it out?

What was it you printed out?

i printed the pants i had to cut about an inch from the top and 1/2" for the sides with 1/4" seam. my model is made with i think butter suede and tightly stuffed. well i guess if it doesnt fit my partner's poppet i could always make her one.   Wink

Depending on how wide your elastic is, the casing at the top would vary. Also the sides of the pants can be altered to different kinds of pants, from skinny, to wide leg, to flare leg. they can also be used to make shorts.
When I used the pants pattern to make capris, the extra on the top was useful for allowing for a ruffle around the waist. I think your poppet is probably the same as everyone elses. The only concern I have for the clothes, is if the altered foot style will fit inside the tighter pants legs. This is why the pants are cut a little more generous on the outside.

I got a ton of measure ments for my partners poppet so Icould adjsut the finished item/ pattern to make sure it fits.
I'd be happy to list the things you'd need to know:
  • Entire poppet length Head to toe
  • Tail height from center of crotch
  • Hips
(measure around)
  • Shoulders
(measure around)
  • Lenth of torso
  • Arm length
  • Leg from ankle to waist
  • waist
  • Thigh to ankle
  • Base of neck to waist

Then make one version of the clothing out of an inexpensive fabric to see how it looks. Measure the parts you are worried about. For example: hips and length for pants. Hem the bottom up to make the length correct.
check the waist and see if it's wide enough. Add seam allowance as needed to the real version.
You do the same sort of thing for any other pattern.
So far I can pretty much guarantee my partners clothing will fit. Smiley
