OKay....it's really hard to make sleeves for poppets with hands that are bigger than their arms. HOW can I make this process simpler? I'm half tempted just to sew the damn shirt TO the poppet. ARRRRGH!!! *rips cloth in frustration* GAH!!

Sleeves are the hardest part for me, and I often have to redo them a couple of times.

And to be totally honest, I did once just make the clothes irremovable because I had such a hard time. (I think I glued it down.   Shocked So bad I know.)

the 2 I have are sewn on permanent. 
OR, I guess you could NOT stuff the hands so much so they can squeeze through...?

I just decided that sleeveless shirts are awesome (as long as it fits the theme of the poppet).  Roll Eyes Barbies and Blythes are so much easier to clothe with their tiny thin arms!  Wink Thanks for the ideas though! May come in handy in the future *files away helpful hints in groggy brain*  Cheesy

I have a few poppets that have clothes sewn on and I love them!  Otherwise I am a big fan of the easy peasy dress.  There are so many things you can do with that pattern and it doesn't have sleeves to argue with.

On another poppet I actually used a pair of needle nose pliers to pull the hands through the sleeves.... Pua's poppet was very cooperative in that regard though Smiley

No worries on sleeveless shirts. As you know I went the no sleeves route too. It's so much easier and less stressful all around.

Here's my poppet I just got today. Isn't she cute? She makes me think of the green alien girl in
Star Trek. I really like her hair. Thank you, pkwj
