Well I can’t believe it, our Salon de Monbon journey is coming to an end.
Momoko and I hope you’ve enjoyed the looks and are inspired to start your own sewing quest.
But before we start, I want to let you know there will be no Sewing Crush on Wednesday April 29, 2020.
During the 5th Wednesday of the month, take this time to enter the giveaway if you haven’t or catch up on any Dolly Sewing Crush you may have missed.
Okay, are you ready to see the final project?
Dolly Sewing Crush: Salon de Monbon Project #4
For the final Salon de Monbon Project, we are featuring a chic Tippet.
You can find this accessory on page 118 in Doll’s Closet Seasons.
In 16 steps, your dolly will have a Tippet to cover their shoulder.
The directions for the Tippet 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 Tippet:
- Sew the fur & fabric right sides together
- Leaving an opening
- Cut excess fabric
- Leave enough fabric near the opening
- Clip & cut corners
- Flip it right side out
- Whip stitch the opening close
- Attach closures
Voilà, the Tippet is done!
This pattern was easy and straightforward.
The only hiccup we had was cutting the sparse mohair (it was the only fur like material we had on hand).
At the time we didn’t realize that you have to be careful when cutting fabric with long fibers, known as fabric with a high pile.
It was later that we discovered a cutting method that won’t cause the fur edges to look like they received a bad haircut.
Our Tippet is not as full as it could be but Momoko & Fluorite don’t seem to mind. They appreciate the effort that went into making it. 🙂
Happy dolly equals a happy life.
