Back when we first started this blog I had a post sharing
clothes we had made or remade.
On the post above I had shared a couple sock dresses.
I just got a request to do a tutorial, so here it is!
NOTE: These sock dresses are NOT easy to put on.
Little girls will need help.
You'll need a patterned knee sock.
Lay your doll flat and lay the sock over her.
The top of the sock should be about where
you want the bottom hem to reach.
Cut off the sock about at her cheekbone.
Lay the sock on your doll and cut a tiny hole just below her armpit.
Using this hole cut a slit about 1"
Pull the sock on from her feet upward.
Then insert her arms in the armhole/slits.
The sock will naturally roll up to make the collar.
NOTE:To really finish this off you can whipstitch
around the neck and armholes.
SO what do you do with the toe of the sock?
This is a great video tutorial for that toe!
I've cut openings in the toe and cut out the heel.
Pulled on the sock and cut a deep V in the top of the sock
Pulled those ends around and tied them behind her neck.
Now I have a dress and swimsuit!
So, some easy doll dresses and swimsuits.
