Patience Wilde sewing patterns SSP-006



I love bloomers, so I made some extra-roomy ones for Patience, and they peep out from under her skirt beautifully.

Available in my Etsy shop:

Or right here on my blog:





If you fancy the dress without the sleeves, there's a section of instructions on how to do that, as well as an extra short tutorial on how to style the bloomers by dampening them.

I bend over backwards to make these patterns excellent value, and the skirts, bodice and sleeve pieces of this set are fully interchangeable with the different components of the dress in pattern SSP-006 (Pinafore set.)




Bloomers!



Patience is kinda fun to pose.



This was a fun project.  I say that about every project I know, but if it wasn't fun, it wouldn't be worth doing I guess.

Next, I'm thinking of a teeshirt and dungarees.  I've never made dungarees for a doll, so I think I'll need to do a bit of sewing research, and think about how I'm going to put them together.

    1. I keep checking your Flickr for new sewing projects. Really looking forward to seeing what you make! I wanted to make dungarees because I've ordered another Patience doll and I'm going to attempt to turn her into a boy. She's taking aaages to cross the Atlantic though.

    2. Sorry... I've done very little this month sort of lost my dolly mojo for a bit...I have a bodice with sleeves so far so getting there.... Why do these dollys take so long to cross the Pond,.... I'm waiting for a new Ell and she seems to have stopped off in Philadelphia for the weekend - I've a feeling this one is going to be trouble!! I look forward to seeing Patience re-imagined as a boy - my girls said not to get any ideas they are girlie girls lol!!!

    3. Oh no worries, it happens to us all. I hope your new girl doesn't turn out to be a problem child! I liked the idea of Patience having a naughty brother, so I think an eyebrow repaint and a suitable wig will transform the doll quite nicely. :)

    4. Oh I expect she will be... picture drought is over... go and look at Flickr - only problem is it's very gloomy and there wasn't really enough light for a good pic... but at least I've managed to make a dress... will have to wait for forceps and loop turner to pitch up before attempting the pinny lol!!

    6. I'm having gender issues, in that I can't say "he" until "she" arrives and has had the op... I mean the makeover.

      I just saw your Flickr and left a message. That fabric is gorgeous... and a little hint, I sometimes pad out my puff sleeves with a bit of cotton wool or quilters wadding... if the doll is going to be in the dress for any length of time.

  2. I like the design and hang of these cheesecloth bloomers - you keep giving me loads of pippa ideas! ;)

    1. The hang is mostly in the styling. I dampen the finished bloomers and tweak them into shape, and then when they dry, they seem to hold that shape really nicely.
