Halloween Witchy Tutu Outfit

Halloween Witchy Tutu Outfit
At Poundworld I found these stripy leg warmers and a Halloween 'Terrifying Tutu Costume' which is really just a cute double layer net skirt and is not that terrifying at all! So here's what I made for witchy Gotz Julia for £2. What you will need: A Terrifying Tutu Costume (or another black tutu) Stripy leg warmers Needle Black thread Scissors Cut the leg warmer (keeping the ruffled edge) to approximately 10"/ 25cm. For the witchy tutu, first carefully cut off the bow. Now find the seam on the elasticated waistband of the skirt. Stitch the loose elastic to the inside of the skirt as in the first photo below. The skirt waistband now fits your doll and is nice and secure. For the hairband, take the 2 pieces of bow from earlier. Here's the finished result from behind. This is your witchy tutu creation from the front. Thanks for reading! Related:  AG Tops, Skirts & Pants PatternsDolls clothes tutorials

Make AG Doll Panties With Pattern Simple things are good. Panties are simple. So, panties are good. Haha. I love it when my little girl asks important questions like, “Mommy, why do you put that brown make-up stuff (she’s talking about foundation) on your face?” Or, “Mommy, why does daddy kiss you for a long time and not a short time like you kiss us?” Another important question she asked me just the other day was, “Mommy, do I have to wear panties every day?” So, I was commissioned to fix this simple little dilemma. And make some little Dolly Panties. And because it’s a doll and doesn’t need to be one bit fancy…….I kept them simple. Now, she has plenty of panties to wear underneath all her little dolly outfits. Problem solved, right? Yes, I believe it is. Now maybe I should answer all of her other questions. Nah, I’ll wait til she’s older. I’ll just let her keep living in her little girl world, where things like dolly panties are amazing, and “Awww, mommy, so cute!” Good, Little Miss, I’m glad you like them. P.S. Related posts:

Elastic Band Skirt For Dolls & Tips On Sewing For Dolls I have been saving a stash of fabric for doll clothes ever since my daughter had her first 18″ doll in 2007. Each piece I save I dream up a list of possibilities of what doll clothes it will become. Do you know what my favorite part of the stash is? It is the pieces that are in the shape of pants, shorts, skirts, shirts, and dresses. Yep, it is regular clothing I plan on repurposing for doll clothes! At first I saved everything. Fabric Weight- This is the most important factor. Don’t be frighted off by my list! Now for the project! Below is the skirt I found at the thrift store for this project. Fabric Weight- This is a very lightweight sheer fabric.The Little Details- I love the way the bottom of the skirt is finished! 1. Now for the how to’s for this project! Elastic- 1″ elastic cut 10 1/4″ long.Skirt- I followed the curve of the original skirt bottom while cutting it out. I used 1/4″ seams for this project. Starting with the underskirt, fold it lengthwise right sides together. Anna

American Girl Clothes- Tutorial 1 of 2 My daughter received an American Girl Doll for Christmas and 1 outfit (from Target’s My Generation Collection) and that was all that was in Santa’s Budget. I knew I would make her doll’s clothes at some point in time; however, the pressure was on to make her doll “Lanie” winter clothes when my daughter saw she could take Lanie out for “Free Skate” after Ice Skating lessons! That was all the motivation I needed to get busy!I used my College Pattern Making Skills (very rusty) and got to work. As a bonus it cost me $0 because it was Strictly Homemade!! I made the pattern and had the material. It turned out well enough I thought I would share with you my patterns and instructions. Required Material: Fleece, matching thread, 1/4” elastic or smaller, scissors, pattern 1. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Here is a very happy 5 year old with her American Girl Doll dressed for the Ice!

An Easy Way to Turn a Sock into a Pair of Doll Tights | Rosies Doll Clothes Patterns Although my tights pattern for both the Cabbage Patch dolls and 18 inch dolls are really quick and easy patterns to make up, sometimes it can be a little tricky to find just the right stretch fabric. So this month I am sharing a tutorial on making doll tights from a ladies sock that one of my wonderful customers, Peggy, has sent me. Peggy loves to create doll clothes using socks and was kind enough to send me some step-by-step pictures and instructions. She says, ‘The nice thing about it is that it is easy to find so many great pairs of socks in really great colours and designs.’ I am sure you will enjoy this tutorial as much as I did. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. If you don’t have a serger, sew using a small zigzag stitch or knit stitch. If you want to make tights without feet, Peggy finishes the lower edge with the rolled hem the length she wants before sewing the leg seams. 8. 9. Happy Sewing By Rosie Saw
