Great Pattern, Easy for Beginners

I absolutely loved using this pattern. The instructions were super clear and easy to follow. Honestly, the only difficult part was getting the bead on top of the neck and inside the seam. Thank you for such a great pattern. I will definitely purchase more in the future.

18 inch doll dress stand.

This was a really fun project to make. The proportions are fantastic. It will be perfect for displaying the doll clothes I make. I don't think it is strong enough to withstand play by a child, but is really cute as a display. I wish the pattern had a marking (a dot) where to stop stitching on the shoulder. I suggest stuffing the body VERY tightly to keep the body from being floppy. My first form was very lumpy, so I spent a little more time with the others to make sure the filling was even. I ran a basting stitch around the bottom, then drew up the threads to help with gluing the body to the base, In this pattern, there is actually very little sewing, just 4 seams, but the shoulder curves were a little bit tricky. Once I got the curve figured out, I couldn't stop making them. Overall, finding a candlestick and wooden piece for the top of the neck proved to be the hardest part of the pattern. Hobby Lobby's unfinished wood findings was the best place I found and I wish I had looked there first. And E6000 adhesive made a stronger bond than hot glue, even though it doesn't dry quickly.

18 " Dress form

This pattern was fun to make and turned out lovely. Like others, I had difficulty finding a candlestick that would work. II don't know how you would use a regular candlestick without a lip around the candle insert. Pictures on this would be appreciated.

Love this!

I got this yesterday & made two today, one with an old placemat & one from curtain material. They both came out really well. I sewed across the neck top instead of using a bead. I have been thinking about making a dress form for a long time & have been saving different sizes of dish washing liquid bottles, thinking they would work as a form. Seventh Generation dish washing liquid was a perfect fit. I put the bottom of the bottle in the dress form & only had to add a little padding in the top area to fill it in. I am going to experiment with putting a dowel rod through the bottle and mount the dowel rod on a wooden piece that will act as my stand. This is for a long dress so I am not worried about how the bottom looks since it will be covered by the dress.
