Hey there, you’re right on time.
Let’s go see what 8 has in store for us this week.
Dolly Sewing Crush: F.L.C. Boy Edition Project #2
To continue transforming 8’s wardrobe, we turned to page 52 in Treasured Doll Coordinate Recipe book and came across a Ruffle Blouse.
You can make a variety of shirts with this pattern.
From adding ruffles, buttons, ribbons, the possibilities are endless.
We decided to keep things simple and went with a basic design without the ruffle.
A tailored Ruffle Blouse of your dreams can be yours in 40 steps.
The Ruffle Blouse pattern fits dolls size:
- 11 cm
- 20 cm
- 27 cm
- 28 cm
- 48 cm
- 55 cm
The directions for the Ruffle Blouse are written in Japanese and include images so you can visually see the step by step instructions.
Your Layout For Sewing Success
Here is your blueprint for making the Ruffle Blouse:
- Sew the front bodices together along the center
- Sew the shoulder seams
- Fold collar in half
- Fold one seam allowance
- Attach collar to blouse
- Clip seam
- Top stitch collar
- Fold cuffs in half
- Fold one seam allowance
- Create a tuck in the sleeves
- Attach cuffs to sleeves
- Top stitch cuffs
- Hand stitch sleeve cap to create a gather
- Attach sleeves to blouse
- Sew side seams & sleeves together
- Clip underarms
- Fold hem of blouse
- Top stitch
- Add hook and loop tape to back
Yahoo, the Ruffle Blouse is complete!
8 looks dapper in this dressy attire.
Dolly Insider Skill Level Rating:
I had soooooo much trouble attaching the collar to the blouse.
The collar didn’t match the length of the shirt.
Each time I sewed it, I would have noticeable puckers.
I lost count of how many times I attempted to make this blouse.
I’m unsure if it’s an issue on my end or maybe something with the pattern.
The pattern looked easy, but I learned that looks can be deceiving.
And I also learned to enjoy the sewing process, bumps and all.
We look forward to seeing you next week for the 3rd project!
