Um hi I suppose

Post by Chove on Sat Jun 20, 2015 11:18 pm

I have dived into the world of Makies, I am getting one printed and I got a "June/Juniper" "Limited Edition" one off Amazon who will keep her company. I was doing really well at not getting new kinds of doll, but then I played with the Makies website and oops. Now I have to make her some clothes. Whee!

Have you seen the patterns from the lab? They're in the sewing section on the forum here and on the old forums on the official website.

The patterns are a great start yeah! And Barbie stuff can be altered to fit. Most factory made stuff does fit anyway, I prefer the fit of vintage sindy heh. Bit wider in the body. Liv stuff fits too.

Makies are super addictive. I spent months umming and ahhing about it, then they put a sale on and I ended up with three hahaha. I now have um... 14 of them. *cough cough* and it's only been like 7 months!

I just saw your pics on Instagram (I was browsing the Makies tag) - I love your re-covered sofa. Did you do that to a pattern or work it up yourself?

I got the pattern from http://www.debellespoupees.eu/patterns.html and it needed I think a bit extra length on piece 5 (not sure, I just remember it needed a wee alteration somewhere) and got a friend to help because it was puzzling me slightly which bit went where and how. But in the end I had a sofa cover that wasn't pink!

Wow that IS a confusing pattern. Why do some of the pieces overlap? I'm dyspraxic so visualising this just.. .my brain goes into static shut down mode lol.

We need someone to do a step by step hahaha.

But great to have a pattern for it. I was tempted to spray paint the seat and ignore the cover completely but a new cover might just be simpler in terms of potential staining issues etc.

I *think* they overlap to save space on the page, so that you have to print out two copies to get all the pieces, which was a bit annoying at the time. If you have the cover for your sofa still around then you can look at it for construction hints. I got it wrong and had to unpick stitches at least once, oops.

Yeah, the pink one can be a bit much! I'll have to have a go of this, thank you.
