A friend of mine has just bought a couple of these, pre loved:
She's getting the basic Nik and a Little Fair Bara. I've been looking
at clothes for them, and they are a truly horrific price! however, my
friend thinks that with some basic pattern drafting on my part, some
sewing instruction, and a bit of patience (plus she's quite artistic),
we might make the two of them some fairly decent clothes, and then
possibly try to recoup the cost of the dolls and finance further madness
by making and selling a few choice outfits.
We don't want to do basic clothes like jeans and shirts... We thought
Manga/Goth pixie, with black and red lace, or ren-fair fairy with
glitter wings and lilac leather corset, and things like that. I did
wonder if there were any basic patterns about for these things that we
could either start on before I get time to draft things, or that my
friend could use to perfect her sewing techniques before tackling some
of our more outré ideas...
Any help tracking down patterns would be appreciated! Photos will no
doubt follow when the Little Plastic People land on the top of the North
Judging by the prices I've seen on various sites for these things, I
could charge almost as much as I would for a made-to-measure adult version!
Ye Gods! I thought I'd never make dolls clothes again, but this could
be fun! ;)
