Do you have a doll that is suffering from NBS?
(Naked Babydoll Syndrome)
An easy way to make your own doll clothes is to begin with
unwanted infant or children's clothing.
Every dolly needs the basics...so let's start with underwear.
First, pin the underwear wrong side out onto the doll.
Remove underwear from the doll being careful not to
shift any of the pins since you will use the pins as a guide
for your stitching.
Keep in mind that to easily take the
garment on and off the doll you may want to make the
fit slightly loose.
Using the pins as a guide, stich seams and trim away
excess fabric. Place underwear back onto the doll.
Since there is obviously too much fabric we will
want to make a few adjustments for a better fit.
Simply tuck extra fabric up under the elastic waistband.
Pin extra fabric in place under the waistband.
Using a stretch stitch, sew over the elastic to hold the
extra fabric into place. I realize this may not win
a prize for workmanship, but this technique solved the
problem and it was fast and simple.
In a matter of minutes, you will have super cute
underpants to fit your dolly!
