This week the Salon de Monbon journey is beginning to wind down.
Let’s jump right in and see what Momoko is wearing for us today!
Dolly Sewing Crush: Salon de Monbon Project #3
Lately Momoko has been hinting about having cold feet.
We want to keep our model happy so we turned to page 122 in Doll’s Closet Seasons and found directions on how to make a lovely pair of High Socks.
In 8 steps, your doll will have a new pep in their steps thanks to these socks.
The directions for the High Socks 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 High Socks:
The High Socks
- Fold & sew top edge
- Fold sock in half
- Sew along stitch line
- Cut seam allowance
- Turn sock right side out
Voilà the High Socks are done!
These socks are soo cute!
We were surprised by how high they are on Momoko.
She adores them.
It’s a quick and easy project that you can make your own with embellishments!
Dolly Insider Skill Level Rating:

I’ve been there too.
Socks look deceptively easy but they can be a bit tricky.
Things that I noticed that caused my socks to be tight was:
If you have additional questions don’t hesitate to ask 🙂
So cute! <3
I heard socks are a good beginner project, but with the last pair I made, I somehow got the top hem slightly too small so they are difficult to put on. ? Have you any tips for making the hem so it isn't too tight?
I love thigh-highs on dolls, it’s so cute!
The pair with lace looks totally pro!
Thank you so much! <3
It was actually my 1st time sewing lace to a sock. 🙂
I purchased a sock PDF from Etsy years ago and referenced it for adding lace 🙂
