Hello everyone! (◍•ᴗ•◍)
It's Kaye sensei here! hellooooo (ノ^∇^)
Blythe dolls are super cute! But sadly, their dresses are quite expensive. ;_;
So, today, I will be teaching you on how to make your own dress for your Neo Blythe doll! <3
First, you will need the following:
✿ Sewing Machine ✿ Scrap fabrics ✿
✿ Laces ✿ Scissors ✿
✿ Measuring Tape ✿ Neo Blythe Doll ✿
Step 1 ✿
Measure your Blythe Doll <3
Here are my measurements for Kumiko :)
Step 2 ✿
Cut your fabric depending on the measurements of your doll :)
Always make extra inches when cutting your fabric.
From top to bottom:
✿ For strap
✿ For the top
✿ For the Skirt
Step 3 ✿
Cut the fabric for the top into two.
Then, cut the sides just like in the photo. :)
After the extra fabric at the bottom.
Step 4 ✿
Then add the straps using the bias tape to make your sewing life easier haha ( ﾟ∀ ﾟ)
Step 5 ✿
Hem the sides of the top, as shown in the photo.
Step 6 ✿
Attach the back part of the top using the Bias tape again. (Bias tape makes sewing life so much easier!! haha)
Hem the sides again.
Step 7 ✿
Cut the back part into half.
Try it on your doll <3
Add lace :)
Step 8 ✿
Hem the sides of the back part of the top.
Step 9 ✿
Attach the front and the back of the Top part.
Step 10 ✿
MAKING OF THE SKIRTTTT <3
Hem the sides of the skirt, put them together but don't sew it till the end of the fabric.
After that, hem the bottom part of the skirt.
Step 11 ✿
Sew big stitches on the top part of the skirt and pull it to create a skirt.
Make sure that the size of the skirt is the same with the size of the top.
Step 11 ✿
Put the top and skirt together like this.
After that, it should look this!
To add more cute elements on your dress, put a lace on the bottom part of the skirt.
Step 12 ✿
Tie a lace on the waist part of the dress to hold it from the body of your doll.
and tadaaaaa you're finished with your Neo Blythe dress!
Kumiko has a new dress now! <3
Sorry if my instructions and measurements are not that accurate, haha I usually don't use a pattern that much when I'm sewing dresses (for dolls or for human dolls haha) (*´･∀･)
I only use instinct when sewing hahaha. sorrrry (̂ ˃̥̥̥ ˑ̫ ˂̥̥̥ )̂
Also, I have some dresses for Neo Blythe Dolls that I made before, Here they are <3
