Mad as a Hatter!

The hat is hatty!
it's hat like and hattish even!
hurrah!

To be honest


I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing.
I'm pretty much winging it in a lot of ways!
The corset piece needs to be wider, and slightly different.
the hat is under way, and then I gotta make gloves!

Marching on!

So here we have the second skirt layer in place:

I gotta add the trim, and do some general thingying!

Behind her you can see what I would now feel comfortable referring to as my trusty 830.

I got a straight stitch foot and plate for this machine and all of a sudden my doll clothing creation changed.
Don't get me wrong, working on my featherweights was not arduous or unfun. 
But this girl has SPACE!

I'm not cramped!
I could rest a sandwich on the bed of the machine while sewing.
I wouldn't, but I could!

First level of the Wicked Witch dress.




So it begins!
This is the bodice/first layer of the dress.
Now I have to do the lower skirt, the corset, the hat, the gloves and the brooom!

How very odd

I find myself exceedingly excited to be working on a larger scale.
The possibilities for decoration and adornment are virtually limitless.

Basically, at this scale I can pull most of the tricks I'd pull at full size, but with 1/3 the material requirements!

I'm very excited to get this first project done and sold and then start working on new designs!


Some of the inspiration images.
I am combining both versions of the witch for my design.

Testing testing 1 2 3

So, I created a pattern and a test dress for this 70cm Bobobie doll.
It's very interesting to see the differences a change in scale makes.
