There is something about Spring that makes me feel hopeful and energized.
Maybe it’s because:
- Mother nature is awakening from her slumber
- Birds are chirping and building nest for their young and
- Flowers are beginning to expose their beauty
Everything is coming to life; Spring symbolizes growth.
And in March we’re going to continue growing our dolly sewing skills by featuring Junko Uchiyama aka allnurds and sewing 4 projects.
Our model this month is 8 and he can’t wait to meet you!
Let’s grow our skills together and learn something new this spring!
Who is Junko Uchiyama:
Dolly Sewing Crush: allnurds Project #1
The 1st look to kickoff the allnurds sewing fest is a pair of cool Leggings from Doll Coordinate Recipe 13 Casual & Unisex on page 110.
5 steps is all it takes to make these Leggings.
The directions for the Leggings are written in Japanese.
There are no images to go with the directions, only an illustration with numbers that correspond to the steps.

Steps 1-5 Making the Leggings
Making the leggings was straight forward.
The steps involve sewing the front crotch seam and attaching the elastic to the right side of the leggings to create a waistband.
The leggings pattern had a cutting guide to remove the excess fabric from the waist though this step wasn’t included in the directions.
The final steps include sewing the back crotch seam, matching the front and back crotch and sewing the leggings inseam.
This pattern came together quickly.
You can make many pairs of leggings for your dolls in a variety of colors.
We had a lot of fun creating a legging brand named 8’s Secret.
