I wasn't finding the style of clothes I wanted for my GORGEOUS custom repainted Monster High Doll (made by http://kayke.deviantart.com/ ) So I decided to make some! I decided I wanted a short Victorian kind of style that wouldn't look too bright (since she's a ghost. lol) I've never really made any clothes from scratch besides a very strange skirt and I've definitely never made doll clothes. I started off with the skirt which was sort of easy to figure out with the pleats but making a body conscious Corset-Type-Thing was sort of hard. I eventually figured out my own sort of pattern with some experimenting. Everything was hand-sewn without any patterns besides my own made ones. I hope you like it and I hope I inspire others to make some pretty Monster High custom clothes... so maybe we can make them for each other? hehe!







Thanks for looking!

So pretty!  I've been getting into the Monster High dolls myself but haven't made any clothes for them yet. 

What did you use to fasten the dress in the back?  Or is it sewn on her body?

Cool dress. 

I have been venturing into clothes for MH too.  I downloaded a pattern for a pair of pants, but I either took too small a seam allowance or did something else wrong, because they were too big.  Cry They ended up fitting the boy CAM doll just about perfectly around, but on him they are too short and low cut!  Undecided

Also check out this thread. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=411903.0  She had some links to patterns for a different doll, but the size seems pretty close to the standard MH doll.

I used Velcro to fasten it on. It's actually two pieces: a corset and a skirt so I can mix and match when I make more stuff.

 Love it! The doll is beautiful too. I have a BUNCH of dolls and occasionally make clothes for them but nothing looks that good. Fantastic job!

I love the clothes but I really love the customization you did on her too.

Er, I didn't customize her. Someone else did. Sorry!
