I was thinking of giving my Madison MyScene doll a make over.  I want to ditch that GOODGODSHOWSTUPIDCANITBE slut/tween look.  I've never made clothes for dolls, or even much for clothes for me.

Can someone point me in the right direction? I've searched Craftster, but only found one mention of My Scene, it wasn't helpful.

(and oh, what I wouldn't do for a Blythe...)

What? Can't 25-year-olds play with dolls? Smiley

A 25-year-old can very well play with dolls if a 30-year-old one can too! Cheesy

The best pattern resource I know is the Puchi Collective (http://www.puchicollective.com/sewing-patterns/), but all the clothing patterns there are for Blythe... Then again, they could be modified to fit MyScene dolls by enlarging them a bit here and there (I think MyScene dolls have slightly bigger bodies than Blythes, but some MyScene stuff does fit Blythes OK so it's a bit toutch and go).

I figured I wasn't the only one... Smiley

Thanks for the link! I've actually been there before, but I have no idea how MyScene compared to Blythe.  But I think I can work with those patterns to come up with some stuff.  The first outfit I want to make for her is a Carribean style pirate outfit, and I fell in love with the collared shirt pattern there, buuut, the link to download it is broken!

Also, whats a gal gotta do to get a Blythe? Do you think anybody would part with one for a swap? I want one so bad I can taste it.

Mmm, plastic.

I like the patterns on that site.
My Mother donated to me all of her doll patterns.
There's everything from fairy, corsets, gothic, old victoriana clothing... The whole lot!

Hi, Simplicity Patterns has two patterns which say they are for the
New Body Shape. That is their way of saying  My Scene. They are basic and a good starting place. With the ideas people have on this page, I am sure you can do well with them. Remember wait until JoAnn's is having the sale where patterns are 1.99.

meriweather - thanks for the tip! unfortunately, the distance i'd have to drive to get to joann's wouldn't make up for what i'd save when its on sale.  maybe i could get it off the website?

and where would it be in the book? is there a toy section?

From what i understand the My Scene dolls have the same body (heads n feet are bigger,tho) as Barbie, so any patterns for Barbie type of doll should work.

I haven't tried any of these patterns, but http://www.molendrix.com/homeengl.html should work for your girl. Anything for belly button Barbie will fit.

If you can't convince them, confuse them.
