Hello

I would like to find out how to sew lace trimming on to a plush doll so it looks like a skirt. I can't figure out how to do it.
Here is a picture to show you what I mean.


Any input or help would be great! Cheesy
Thank you

Stitch it into place before sewing the front and back of the doll together. It will be caught in the seams on both sides that way though. If you want it to go around without being in the seams, sew the back and front together only up to the waist then turn right side out, pin the lace on and stitch around. Turn inside out and continue stitching the body together. Or use glue or hand stitch it into place after all the assembly is done.

I've made a couple of dolls with similar skirts and I must admit that I do it the easy way and just sew the lace on to the outside once the doll's body is already assembled. I just pin it where I want it to go, and then I use a nice neat backstitch (in the same colour thread so that it isn't too visible).

Good luck xx
