I truly looooooooved the dragon poppet.. It's so cute !!!

Here I worked hard while my lil one was sleeping ( and it's midnight now....)
But I am done!!

Well... for now...

here she is, all dressed (and she likes it better !)


empire top, flared legs pants and a coat without sleeves.
She was tired because I had a hard time getting her dressed so she sat...


The coat is completely lined witht he same fabric than her top, so it's reversible.
then she wanted to remove her coat to show you all her beautiful top:


I am going to make her another top ( but not tonight !!) with wider sleeves because this one is so tight ! My lil one won't be able to get her dressed! Maybe an update tomorrow!

Yep I've had that problem with the patterns with certain poppets. The reason is because some fabrics stretch more than others and everyone stuffs thier poppets differently.
What I've done to make sure everything fits is make a mock up out of either a paper towel or plain cheep cotton.
You can then a measure that and cut it apart to see how to alter the pattern to fit your poppet.
I found the peasant shirt to be the most universal as well as the pants. You can have lost of fun with both. Smiley

You can also save yourself some time by measuring the widest part of your poppets hand and the narrowest part of the pattern for the sleeves. If the two are not the same or close it will be difficult to get the dolls hand through the sleeves.
The same goes for the feet and the legs on pants. Skirts are fairly easy as you can add a button or snap to make it close tighter at the waist!
Have fun! I think making the clothing and experimenting with each doll to find what They like is the most fun part. Smiley

first the stick for the neck and now tips for clothing.... you are just awesome !!

When I cut the clothes, I thought it would be too narrow but as a good newbie, I decided to try anyway... I made some changes already and I am right now waiting for my lil one togo to bed to be done with the top... The peasant top was next on my list, as well as my poppet purple twin..... maybe an update later Wink

I wanted to thank you all so much. you are the nicest persons ever! And as I read the first posts on this thread, I have to agree: this is addictive !! I also found myself obsessed at first and now more peaceful, thinking about what I can make next. You made it easy, even for a newbie like me... And I even think about making 'real' clothes to my daughter, which just seemed impossible before I started. I only own a sewing machine for a couple a months, and I find it fun to just be adventurous and discover a whole world completely unknown by me before... So thank you ALL again. I am so happy tobe part of this adventure !!

oh, and I am not sorry to have made mistakes, I just learned a lot by making them. For once, I am not the teaching one but the learning one!

I agree, snooky.
Craftster is such an amazing community and poppeteers are the best of the bunch - everyone is so supportive and generous.
I owe just about everything I have posted to ghilie and the poppet.  Once I completed my first doll, I felt like I could try anything.  Poppets are still my favorite, but now I happily play with felt, polymer clay, jewelry, paint, etc.

Snooky, I love your poppet's coat!  So cute.  I made my poppets feet rather large so pants can be a toughie...  hmm.  She looks so great in her new outfit.  My poppet is still wearing a bandana tied like a dress. Embarrassed
