I adore the Monster High dolls so when I saw the Monster High Swap Round 2 I just HAD to sign up.
I didn't realize what I was getting myself into! These dolls are a challenge to sew for because of their arched backs.
After some struggling to make patterns, I came up with these two outfits.

I made strapless top using polka-dot calico cotton then I made the pleated mini skirt, which was repurposed from a Halloween costume accessory.


Every ghoul should have a little black dress so I made this dress from a light cotton fabric.

Patience. Lots of it, too. And I used my sewing machine, which required even MORE patience because I had to go very slowly.

Thanks Cheesy
I wanted to make another skirt but I didn't have a big enough piece left.

These look great! I love sewing for my ghouls, and I agree that it is really difficult to find patterns that work...you did a great job :3

Thanks. I'm trying to master the art of making pants for these gals right now. Then I'll be trying my hand at making a pair of boots.
