Plus, it can't hurt to drum up some votes on here!

Plus I am totally going to drum up some votes by sending the link to all of my Facebook friends... And, and, I might even hack into my little sisters account and do it to hers also (with her consent of course Wink )...

I think Millicent is a good name (just too lazy to go over there), and this is going to be one of the most memorable poppets so far.

Well thanks, I don't know about the most memorable part, I am sure that once someone makes a 3 foot tall poppet, she will be forgotten about Wink... And I totally have recommendations (that I will post later) as to things I would have changed about making such a large poppet- like the changing up the location of the button joints and whatnot (just in case someone is interested in making such a monstrosity  Cheesy )

averyg Great job and wonderful poppet. She is just gorgeous I would lay money down that you will win. I am off to vote.

Kinda off topic I was wondering if those of you not in the states have items that are hard for you to find for your poppetering?  And what they might be. My friend is deployed in the UK and was wondering what would be a good gift to send her she just got the pattern not to long ago. Thanks for your help.

Whoa... random side note, yesterday I totally typed "The Long Awaited Poppet Along" into the side bar to find it, this morning when I tried I noticed that "The Long Awaited Poppet Along" is no longer! We are now "The Ongoing Poppet-Along"...

I'm trying to make a Coraline poppet and the only thing I'm having an issue with is the pants. I've looked at all of the pant tuts on this forum that I could find and I really don't understand them. I printed the pants from the link on the first page but I'm not sure how to construct them. Would anyone mind explaining?

I followed the directions and got the pattern piece but I don't understand how it matches up for sewing? I've spent almost 2 hours trying to figure it out and I can't find doll clothes patterns in the stores to just use.

have you ever made regular, human sized pants?  i remember my first pair of pants, years ago.  I puzzled over that pattern, lol.  

here's a picture tutorial from alwaysinspired.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=306454.msg3510078#msg3510078

Basically You cut 4 pieces of fabric in the shape of your pattern.


Now you will lay them together in pairs. Then sew side "B" of each pair. Then pin the pants from the curved side, and side "A". You can sew from the top of the curved side down side "A" to the bottom.
Then Hem "A" By turning it up on the inside where the seams are. Then for the top (Hem "B").
Cut a piece of elastic about 1/2 inch to a full inch shorter than your dolls waist measurement. Sew said elastic into a "O". Place elastic over top of paints (Hem "B") the fabric will bunch. this is ok. Fold Hem B over the elastic and stitch that down.
Turn pants right side out and WHA LA PANTS! Smiley

Just wanted to add this is craftewomans photo I just drew on it to make it easier to describe the process. Some people do the hems differently than I do this is just easiest for me.
