SSP-075: "Boho Vibes" - Sewing pattern for default bust Smart Doll.


This is an entirely new style from the Raccoon HQ desk.  I've always found skirts for dolls that bit pesky. They ride up, they twist around so the front is at the side, hence, I've always wanted to make a skirt with combined knickers.

...And here it is.

*Available in my Etsy shop:

*Etsy will charge EU customers VAT (This does not affect America or other non-EU countries). EU customers might find it cheaper to buy here, directly on the blog.

Once your have paid, I will email your digital pattern file directly, within 24 hours at the outside, usually much sooner.   As a buyer, you are protected by PayPal.



£9.50


Both girls (for once) approve of the design.  Cass doesn't think it's too girlie, and Cali thinks it's girlie enough.



If the front lacings look a bit daunting, don't worry!  they are mock ties, and the top actually fastens in back with snaps.  You can use eyelets, or just embroider the lacings in with cross stitch.




I've made this as versatile as possible.  The top can be made without sleeves, and the knickers can be made separately from the skirt.   Knickers are a great addition to any outfit you make, not just this one.

And let's not forget the hat.  It will look cool with numerous outfits.



Here's the clever little skirt.  You can easily make it longer by cutting a deeper ruffle.



Next up... I'm not sure.  I'm adding some pieces to these outfits to list them for sale.   I may try a long summer dress next, or something for a different doll.

We'll see where the muse takes Rufus and me. (He may look happy enough, but he's a tad miffed at me for letting him get dusty and then subjecting him to an under-the-bathroom-tap shower.)

SSP-074: for Default bust Smart Doll.



This is a favourite style of mine and I've produced similar dresses for several types of doll.  Finally I was able to sit down and make one for the default bust Smart Doll.  these girls are a lovely shape to sew for, and the resulting dress and top are very flattering and feminine.

I was on such a roll with this one, that I created a little top as a bonus.  It shows off  Cali's sexy midriff nicely.



Here's the long version, on Cass.  She doesn't usually approve of anything too girly, but I think she likes this one.


Cali, of course, prefers the flirty one, with girlie flowers and lace.



These armlets are a great item too.  You can make them to go with different outfits, not just this one.




Next up, I'm having fun with these girls again, so it'll probably be something else for Smart Doll.

KP-010: Cowl neck dress & Sweater for Kaye Wiggs MSD girls.



I made this cowl neck as a test, but it was so well received on Facebook, that I was asked to produce the knitting pattern for it.  So here it is, as promised.

*Available in my Etsy shop:

*Etsy will charge EU customers VAT (This does not affect America or other non-EU countries.)  I always recommend that people look in my Craftsy store anyway, as the prices fluctuate due to the international exchange rates.

Or right here on the blog: (PayPal shopping cart)
If you do buy from me here on the blog, and you live in the EU, the rules state that I don't have to charge you VAT as it's a direct sale. Once you have cleared checkout, I will email the pattern files to you directly. Please allow me 24 hours, because of time zones. Usually it will be far quicker than that.

You can find the sales pages at the top of the blog, in tabs for each section. I will email you the pattern PDF files directly, after you've cleared checkout. Click this link to email me, if you have any queries.



5.99




This will fit all 3 of the MSD sized Kaye Wiggs bodies.





And can be knitted in a multiple of yarns, as long as it's 4ply.... or if you're in the USA sport weight yarn.








So that's that. 

Next up, I'm working on something feminine and gorgeous for Smart Doll.
