Doll Clothes - Creative Design


My 10 year old daughter loves to make clothes for this bear and she designs them all herself. I taught her to sew much like I am teaching my younger daughter. See here. Many of the dresses below were made from the same simple pattern. She constructed the pattern and each dress looks different because she embellishes them differently and makes them from different fabrics. One has an appliquéd dancer, one has a ribbon and rhinestones, and one has a bead.

She has learned and perfected her sewing, knitting, and crocheting skills mostly by making dolls and doll clothes. Through these activities she has learned to follow directions and design her own patterns. Constructing doll clothes has been a wonderful creative outlet for her.

  3. You have a talented daughter right there! Make sure to keep her passion in sewing alive by giving her more challenging assignments as she grows older. For example, help her make different shirts with sewed pictures in the middle. :D
