As always if you have any questions or ideas I would love to hear from you.
Q. Will we be sewing for only one doll size?
A. All the designs that I chose for you guys to pick from have many dolls that they will fit. The construction is the same regardless of the doll. So the sew along should work for a variety of dolls. However, I have plans to do a post describing how to resize a pattern to fit a doll not listed.
Q. What if I want to alter the design of the pattern?
A. That would be wonderful! The whole reason I started designing and making doll clothes was because I thoroughly enjoy when those creative juices get going.
Q. How long will this sew along take?
A. That really depends on the design that is chosen. I am wanting to go into great detail and cover all aspects of the construction. But should take at least a couple of weeks of actual sewing. But we will spend the whole month of June gathering supplies.
Q. Am I able to sell the outfit once I make it?
A. Yes. Once you construct the outfit it's your creation. We all have different touches that we put into a sewn project. The differences make them unique and our own. I would like credit for the pattern used though.
Q. Are we going to be able to share our photos with each other on here?
A. Yes. Right now the only way I know to do that is for you to email me pictures of your outfits and I'll post on a blog. However, I am currently looking into Flickr to see if I can start a "group" there. I've seen it done with other sew alongs for real people.
I have had a few good suggestions too. One of which is that I share a place where we can buy our fabric online. Once I know which outfit we are doing I will purchase my fabric online and then share the link so that if you choose you can make exactly the same. Creativity and originality is important to me. So fabric choice will be up to you. I think in the next post I will share some of my favorite online stores to buy from.
If I didn't answer a question here please leave me a comment and I will do my best to answer your question soon.
Don't forget to vote on your favorite design!!!
Until next time,
