Eager to start making your own doll patterns?
If so, then you’ll want to checkout the Paper Pattern Textbook Bodices, Sleeves and Collars presented by Hobby Japan’s Dollybird & doll designer Araki Sawako.
It’s a manga-styled instruction manual on designing doll bodices, sleeves and collar patterns.
You’ll learn how to create outfits for 30 different types of dolls from Obitsu 11 to SD16.
There are also samples of the patterns in the back of the book.
You can compare your design to Sawako’s and see if you’re on the right track or if you’ll need to make some adjustments.
If you’re ready to explore the world of patternmaking for dolls then this book is a must for your dolly library.

I look forward to chatting with you.
I love that books like these are made. It honestly makes creating clothes for my dolls much easier than drafting and creating doll clothes from scratch. I don’t have this one specifically but I did buy the skirt pants version. I haven’t used it just yet to make anything but I have been using the other Japanese doll clothing books that fall into this one’s same category. I’ll probably add this one to my collection since it’s the best way I can make perfectly sized clothes for my Ruruko, SD16 and 1/3 dolls.
I totally agree.
There’s such a huge amount of helpful information in these books that help reduce the time it takes in creating patterns/clothes for dolls.
I simply need to make the time to go through the books. And that is what we plan to do this year.
We’ll be working through the Paper Pattern Textbook Skirts & Pants this year.
There are several skirt and pants patterns I’m excited to create.
I know we’ll make a lot of mistakes but we’ll figure it out in the end 😆
If you make any outfits from the Paper Pattern Textbook Skirts & Pants, do come back and share your makes.
And let us know what you think.
We’d enjoy hearing your experience and learning some tips from you.
