Hey all!

I need help!

I need a pattern for a dress shirt, pants, vest, and tails jacket for a poppet.  It's for a swap that I haveta send out by Wednesday (I'm still finishing up about 2 other projects for this and have 1 more to go)

If anyone could help me out, I'd really appreciate it!

Hmmm... the best thing I can suggest is to print off 2-3 copies of the torso part of the poppet pattern and sketch over them a basic outline of the front and back pieces for your waistcoat and jacket.  Then sketch out a rough sleeve shape over the arms; the shirt should be easier since it can be loose fitting, pulled in by the waistcoat,

Here's what I sketched as a rough idea for the pieces for a simple waistcoat; sketch something like this out onto the poppet pattern to get the scale right, then add whatever pockets, etc you want?

One of the big bits for the back, and 2 of the smaller pieces for the front, plus lining if you're doing that.

For trousers, I would take a look at a pair you own to get a very simple idea of the pieces you need, then measure your complete poppet along the waist, butt, legs etc.

Hope this helps!

I finally have a wist!
