I have  a bad experience when purchasing a hand-styled doll wig. The wig, when is put on my doll head, is unbalanced. The back-ties is more to the left. The crafter/stylist said it’s ok on her doll but i’m not sure if she has tested it on her doll head. She just showed me photos […]

Practising Before Making

July 31st, 2018

I’m having a Doll clothes project that will need some particular details that looks ‘easy’ to be done but actually not easy. Just because something looks simple, it means it’s easy to be done. It’s not. Before I start my project, I had been practicing to make small pleat. I used varied ways, start from using […]

In current project, I am going to R&D sewing ribbon on collar. It is quite challenging for me because the curve side make it difficult for ribbon to follow when is being sewn. I forgot from where I got the idea but here I am using FABRIC GLUE to attach the ribbon on. It is […]

Mori Kei : A New Love

June 17th, 2018

I watched Honey and Clover dorama once again  last time. My eyes were then on Hagu’s outfit. It’s so adorable. The style looks so messy but very comforting. I looked in the internet and it’s mori style. I remember i have read about that mori means forest, and the outfit is about forest-style fashion, yet, […]

I’ve been doing sewing with cute and/or sexy style. Pink, red, white, yellow, all ended up with cute or sexy style. Lately, i watched a japanese dorama and I’m in love with one character and her clothes style. There’s no very much source about it though it’s a popular style. I feel I want to […]

Been learning lots for months from dolly books which then remind me of how I used to take measurement for human patterns. Now, i’ve been going back to revise the pattern on few parts. My pattern for doll is ok but for some style, I think, the dolly books technique (which is same as when […]

I plan to make doll clothes for sale. I had hunted some good fabrics but apparently, they were the ugliest fabrics I ever bought. I took a break and sew something else like bag. I then thought to make bag with faux leather handles. I bought the handles from local online store. I tried their […]

I made a doll pants pattern. I was confused, why the pants I made was almost unfit for my doll. It was almost too small. Need a little bit pull and small cuts to make it  flexible on the waist. I then ‘tested’ the pattern (Yes, I created real project first and then tested the […]

Rubber Band (Tape) With Holes

August 13th, 2017

Above is the rubber band I mentioned in my previous post. It’s quite common now. Kids’ pants use it a lot.   Please zoom it to see it. I learned from store pants I bought for kids while ago. The points are: Make a ‘vertical straight hole’ on the waist band. The height is same […]

Boy’s Uniform

August 11th, 2017

I made boy clothes lately. School ‘free’ uniforms, and now, pants. It’s not easy to make them the right way. Of course, it looks ok but actually, there were small mistakes and ‘imperfection’. It’s quite tricky to sew this kind of ‘seamless’ pattern on the opener side. I also forgot that my teachers once taught […]
