The only pieces we are working with today is the skirt, the skirt lining and the organza skirt underlining. The underlining is used in this case to add some volume to the skirt. This is a ball gown and thought it could use the extra volume. However, if you are sewing for one of the smaller dolls such as Barbie or Tiny Kitty this underlining might not be a good idea. Even though organza is a lightweight fabric, when you gather it along with other fabrics it can be too much for those smaller girls to pull off. I am working on the American Model and using the Duchess Satin that was in the kits. So the skirt could definitely use that extra help.
I'm interested is what choices you guys have come up for fabric choices. What dolls are you sewing for? Is anyone altering a pattern to fit a doll that I don't design for? I love to hear all of your comments.
