Hi there.  I'm a newbie to sewing, and I have yet to make any form of clothing.  There are some patterns for poppet clothes over in the toys and dolls section, but there are no instructions on how to put them together.  Having never sewn clothing, I have no clue what I'm doing.

I've searched Craftster and tried many different search phrases on Google, but I can't find anything step-by-step for someone like me, who knows nothing about sewing.

Does anyone know of a clear tutorial that will take me step-by-step on how to piece together pattern pieces to make clothing?

I am the creator of the poppet clothes patterns, and it is true that there are no instructions on how to put them together. For experienced seamstresses/ sewers, this is a snap. However if you've never sewn before, you would have no clue how to put together that particular puzzle. I suggest you buy some clothes patterns, either for full sized humans or for dolls, and get some experience putting them together before attempting the poppet clothes. Then the few directions that are on there will make sense to you.

Here's a link to some patterns that have more clear instructions.

I don't know if those are the same size as what you need but hopefully if you understand those they can help you understand the Poppet clothing.
Once you start sewing most of the time you don't need any instructions.
Good luck
