DOLL SEWING PATTERN
I'll be wearing a western "Steam-Punk" styled dress. I like the dress pattern in the middle (above), and the red vest pattern from the pattern at the top of this page. The vest will be made of leather scraps from a previous project. Also a lace blouse, and boots too.

LAYING OUT THE PATTERN
Cut out the pattern piece for the ruffle
Hem the ruffle.
Sew across the top of the ruffle with a large basting stitch.
Gather the ruffle by carefully pulling the basting stitch from each end.
When making the basting stitch leave lots of threat at each end for pulling and gathering.
Sew the basting stitch in place with a regular stitch, as pictured above.
Add the ruffle to the line on the dress. Should look like this.
These 1950s vintage doll sewing patterns have many options and can be used for much more than a retro style. These are life-size patterns for a life-size doll. We'll be making the dress in the upper right corner for "Suzie", who is owned by my daughter. She has played with this doll since she was a kid, and still owns her now at 25 yrs old. She's 30" tall and desperately in need of a make-over. My daughter is coming for a visit this weekend, and while she's here, we'll discuss the makeover, which will include a wig, eyelashes, makeup, and new retro clothes among other things.
As soon as Sue is ready for her close-up you'll see it here. Subscribe today if you'd like to be notified when this makeover video is released.
