Step 1First you have to decide on a style.
I want my doll to look about 12 in her outfits so I am looking for something that is a bit trendy but I also want it to be casual for summer fun. So I am leaning towards Sporty/Casual with a taste of Edgy/Trendy
Because summer can be really hot or just warm depending on where you live I have decided to stick to long trousers this time but shorts would work just as well.
Step 2My garment formula is:
- 2 tops
- 2 bottoms
- 1 jacket
- 1 accessory
I have decided on:
- A drop sleeve grandpa top in a knit.
- A peasant blouse.
- A denim skirt.
- Long trousers/jeans with cuffs
- A vest
- A small purse with a shoulder strap.
I chose the garments with some fabrics in mind but I only settled on the fabrics after I knew exactly what I was going to make.
Next instalment is about the fabrics. I will be trying to stick to the fabric formula but ultimately it is the garments that decide the fabrics.
