For printing the patterns, those in the US may have scaling issues. Make sure you tell your printer NOT to scale the image to fit. Always be sure to check it printed to the correct scale by using that little ruler printed at the bottom (soooo helpful)


I'm copy/pasting a lot of this including the commentary.

Next up, Hoodies!

Riikka has crafted another brilliant pattern! This time around, we're sharing the cape. Modifications on this could be really awesome, maybe a little embroidery on the back? Not going to presume the initials for you, but ‘S’ has a nice ring to it…wait, er, wrong cape. smile

From jojomodjo





Steps are simple enough, might be able to put a photo tutorial together at some point, but in words…

Makie Waist = 10.5cm.

Depending on how much fullness your want to the skirt, double or triple the length and add 1cm for seam allowance, so 22cm or 32.5cm respectively.

Waist to knee = 7.5cm
For a knee length skirt, add 2.5 cm for hems, so 10cm.

Measure a rectangle from fabric following the above dimensions. On the bottom long edge, sew a hem using a 1cm fold over. On the top long edge, fold over 1.5 cm, and sew 1cm in to make a 1cm channel down the side.

Using a blunt tapestry pin, feed the elastic through the channel. Pull each end tight until all the skirt scrunches up to Makie size. Tie it tight, trim the excess.

Right sides together, sew up the side. This will become a seam at the back.
Turn the right way round, and tadah, skirt done!

It takes about 5 minutes to make. smile

The process basically follows this skirt tutorial but on a mini scale.

(Monkfish note: That whole site is actually super useful for inspiration and ideas)

stacherabbit again, has a lovely Yukata pattern:

I did a little experimenting today and I figured out a really easy way to make a simple summer yukata robe like they wear in the japanese animes. It could double as a bathrobe or a smoking jacket too depending on the material.

The scale can be adjusted to suit your needs. I hand sewed mine and it was pretty simple but if you have a machine I'm sure it will be a snap. My camera sucks so I drew up a step by step guide instead.

I just discovered that most of the DressYourDoll patterns also fit for Makies! They are actually for Barbie etc. and some of the dresses and trousers can be a bit too long (but you can make the legs a bit shorter with scissors); all tops, t-shirts, skirts and shorts fit fine. I just made this kimono for my new Makie using the DressYourDoll pattern "Yumi":

I will be trying out some more of these patterns, my Makie is really happy with her new kimono Very Happy

these come with a paper pattern as well don't they? So you can make multiple outfits with whatever you want. I don't much care for the strange shiny fabric with the white underside, but love the idea of easy patterns.

That is a cute kimono as well.

Which one do you have? I have made different DressYourDoll outfits now, especially the tops, shirts and short skirts are fitting well...
The fabric indeed is a bit shiny, but so easy because it doesn't fray, no need to hem cheers

I'm eying up a few hehehe, I think they could be really useful for simple outfit pieces. There's a jacket one I think could probably be tweaked to make Labcoats, there's all those shirts and dresses which could look amazing with all different fabrics hehe.
I'm tempted to grab a few because my sewing skills are about child level lol. It might help me to learn how things go together, because it's something I really struggle with. I'm dyspraxic so things like patterns cause some sort of brain short circuit and everything goes all fuzzy. My mother can look at a garment and know what shapes made it up and be able to draft something from scratch, me? all i see are shapes and then i'm at a loss how they go together to make something that even half-way looks like the finished piece.
