         I just got a Blythe Clone and have been trying to sew clothes for her from patterns but to no avail (I attempted the Puccini A-line Dress 6 times without success!). I finally decided to take a break from pre-designed patterns and make my own!
        I have a ton of Mexican Oilcloth and Vinyl Scraps about the house. So, with that in mind, I set out to make a mini-apron using these materials and some tiny copper grommets I found at Michael's. I have made and sold life sized versions, but this was the second Blythe sized apron I made (the first was sent to the marvelous StacySews for all of her help).
        So, without further ado:




        I used snaps for around the neck on the second try and added superglue to the mini grommets for extra hold. I can give a basic tute for anyone interested. but it is pretty easy to figure out.

       Let me know what you think! Thanks for looking!

It's hard to sew those small little seams.

Looks good  Smiley Do you know what trouble you were having with the A-line dress? I just recently finished it myself.

Thanks for offering help! I am doing something wrong when it comes to putting the two pieces together. I have tried it 6 times! I just can't read patterns  Undecided . Could you PM me with some hints on the dress?

Till I figure out patterns, I guess I'll stick to making my own.
