Pint Sized Party Dress

When in doubt, I sew something small – and by small I mean, miniature clothes! I think I can safely say, I am finally getting the hang of sewing doll clothing. While the general construction is the same, there are some elements (like sewing the hems before some seams, etc.) that are done much differently.

This particular outfit is from the Puchi Collective, a site that has a number of free tutorials and patterns designed for Blythe dolls. I was anxious to give one a whirl to check out how they sewed up and fit… and I was pleasantly surprised! The instructions are similar to what you might find in a Japanese doll magazine (limited instructions, so this is probably best for someone who has some sewing experience), but it’s in English so there’s no deciphering each step. I also liked that there is a sewing gauge at the bottom of the page so you can assure that your printout is the correct size and your fit is spot on. I’ll be keeping this site in mind for my BlythePullip Autumn Celebration swap – we’re low on participants so if you’ve been wanting to do a Blythe themed swap, this one is for you! Plus you may get one of these fabulous dresses……
