Oksana and Raissa are cool with waiting. Both have their default outfits from Dollmore. Alida (or Anise--I haven't decided which name will stick) has to wear whatever I sew for her, because I sold her default outfit. I made her a new dress for the last meet-up. Is she satisfied? No. The petulant little thing looked me in the eye and demanded I create something else. Nothing froufrou. If she sees a single frill or piece of lace trim, she'll tear it off, she says.
I've had the Dressing Up pattern (Designs by Jude) for a long time. I bought it when I had a Tonner 17-inch Hermione Granger. The doll is now gone but I never used the pattern. Would it would fit a Judith Girl? I didn't have Hermione's measurements, so just to be on the safe side I made the top in a knit fabric, even though it calls for cotton or blends. This way, if it ran small I might still be able to use it. Well it ran big, so much so that I had to take in the sides. It's still loose. I wonder if patterns for Tonner fashion dolls would work better? I have one that I used for a Rosette School of Dolls girl. I'll try it next time. If it's a closer fit I'll know which size to buy. I wish I still had the outfit, but I included it with the doll when I sold her. That reminds me--I made a muslin of the blouse to see how it would fit the Rosette. I wonder if I still have it? Found it. Sleeve openings and cuffs are too narrow for her wider hand.
