Violette Field Threads Clara Doll Top, Dress & Shorts Review

Almost exactly what I needed.

I loved the pattern of the dress and the assembly was easy. It was very cute! I wanted to make the matching baby dress and this doll dress to go on the Katie Cat that I made for my sister-in-law’s baby, however the dress didn’t quite fit around the neck of the cat. I assume it would fit nicely on an actual 18” doll, but I was a little disappointed to find out it was too small to fit around the cat’s neck. I simply decided to use Velcro to fasten it, and just left it slightly open on the back of the neck as a solution, and wouldn’t alter the dress in any way for a future stuffy pattern. I may try to alter the stuffy pattern a bit though to make the neck smaller.

Śliczny komplet!

Jeśli już szyłaś z wykroi VFT to już wiesz, że szycie wg nich, i w oparciu o tutorial, jest bardzo proste. Biorąc pod uwagę fakt, że taką samą sukienkę możesz uszyć dla właścicielki lalki, masz idealny prezent np na zbliżający się Dzień Dziecka. Z tego wykroju uszyłam sukienkę i pasujące do niej spodenki. Idealnie pasują na lalki o wielkości 42-44 cm.
