Measuring & Fitting Doll Clothes Patterns

Measuring & Fitting Doll Clothes Patterns
NOTE: Book recommended for beginning sewers. It contains a lot of basic sewing/fitting techniques, terms, basic fabric/thread information, hints on buying a sewing machine/serger, etc. The book is: "Mother Pletsch's Painless Sewing - Fourth Edition" and can be ordered on the Palmer/Pletsch website (click here). These notes are primarily aimed at measuring and fitting dolls. However, I have put in some references to human (and human pattern) measurements for comparison and to use when working with a human pattern to create a doll pattern ---- (see Pattern Creation Page). *NOTE: I will not be covering how to make pattern alterations for individual body differences as it would take an entire book! MEASUREMENTS - only part of the story! There is no doubt that taking accurate body measurements will get you a better fit - either for yourself or for a doll. You almost can't take too many measurements! 1. 2. Bust Around the bust line, at the fullest part. Wrist Measure around the wrist.

If you only have a few patterns, replacing them is not a problem, but a collection like mine requires a lot of copying. Doll making, though, is not my only pattern collection; as a preschool teacher I also have an extensive collection of patterns for school.
