The pattern pieces for a doll soon to become a small likeness of myself. I am going to be making these dolls with a group of girls that I work with and I’m familiarizing myself with this pattern (aka I couldn’t wait to start sewing a doll for myself). The pattern is a Vogue pattern, which turns out is one of few doll patterns that one can buy at the fabric store. I’m sure there are many other- and better patterns out there but this was the most accessible.
After starting the sewing with my colleagues, we are thinking about simplifying the pattern for the girls because of time constraints and such. Another learning I had- picking out fabric that matches your skin color is difficult and not the color I thought it would be. Of course, it depends if we are talking about the color of my face or the color of my stomach.
