11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Clothes for Jenny + Links (Warning! Pic heavy) on: July 26, 2012 01:43:31 PM
Look great!  I can't look at the links from here at work, but will try to check them out when I get home.

I have been looking to make some stuff for my daughter's Monster High dolls.  I have been having a difficult time finding patterns.  I know I can draft my own, but it take longer and is frustrating to the 9 year old.

About how tall is Jenny?  Do you know how she compares to Monster High dolls?

Any pointers you are willing to share?  I am especially interested in how you finished the edges (hems, openings for arms and legs, etc.)
The light haired Jenny is on a 27cm medium soft bust obitsu body and her measurements are approx. 11.5cm-7.5cm-11.5cm. I'm not sure how that compares to MH. I'm assuming you could probably just make alterations to existing patterns. I can't recall seeing any MH sewing patterns, just a couple cute crochet ones.

I always hemmed the legs or arm/neck holes first before I sewed the sides, makes it much, much easier to do them. Also on the smaller pieces I had to use tissue paper as a backing when sewing so that my machine wouldn't drag the material down and get caught (I believe they sell paper specifically for that, but tissue paper is what I had handy).  I would also recommend using fabric tape on the tiny things like bra's and panties because sometimes the tiny hem just wont stay when you're trying to sew it down. Probably basic stuff for an experienced sewer (which I am not lol)

Thanks for looking!

Your costumes look great! Just out of curiosity, was the dealers room any good this year? I've noticed a decline in the amount of neat and unique things for sale in the recent years and was unable to make it this year.

It's a great piece, I agree with the bikini idea if you can't just hang it up all natural. You could just cut out a piece of contact paper and stick it on there, then you could pull it off when he's old enough to not care!
