I've been trying to sew 'doll clothes' for my hubby (He refers to them as 12" action figures from NECA. Whatever they are.. they cost a ton of money.) I haven't had any luck with sewing on such a small scale. It seems that when I try to get a really small seam allowance for a shirt that is only 4" wide it gets caught and tangled into the needle plate and then I need to rip the piece of out the machine to just start over. Do needle plates with smaller openings exist or am I chasing a dream here?

Take a look at this website that has lots of good tips for sewing doll clothes and maybe one will help you with the fabric pulling into the machine. It's a five-part series.
