I've been doing a lot of sewing lately in preparation for the relaunch of my Etsy store.  Previously I sold repainted dolls in my shop, but now I will be selling PDF sewing patterns (and probably still some repaints as well :P).  So over the past few weeks I have been drafting, sewing, adjusting, and redrafting some of my better clothing patterns into printable files.

Those skinny jeans on MH are smokin'!   :dropjaw:  I only have the Frankie 17", but she just might need a pair of those!
Monsters need love too!

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Goo looks fantastic! And those boots, killer!

Good luck with the relaunch!

I've listed my first sewing pattern in my Etsy shop. :D
This pattern is for long- and short-sleeved boyfriend shirts for 17" MH dolls.

Thank you, DGRequiem and DogMom! :D


I've added the 17" MH jeggings pattern to my shop.  I hope to have the patterns for the Kikipop blouse and leggings completed and listed next week.

I have temporarily removed the MH boyfriend shirt and jeggings patterns from my shop.  I recently graduated from hand sewing to a machine, and in the process I discovered just how terribly machine-unfriendly my patterns were. ^^; 
ebmerc had tested a few of my patterns for me and was the first to bring this to my attention.  Once I started machine sewing myself and saw exactly what she was talking about, I knew that I had to completely retool my patterns. -_-  So I'm fixing them up now and will have them relisted in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, I have finished and listed my Kikipop blouse pattern (and yes, this one is optimized for both hand sewing and machine sewing :lol:).  It includes long and short sleeve variations so that you can create the perfect top for any season.

aaa I need to know how or where to get those boots! Best of luck to you and your shop.
EDIT: I hand sew a lot so maybe you could put in the title or dead noting which sewing method works best?
( I have to whack my sewing machine to get it to function -_- )

The boots that Gooliope is wearing?  Those are BJD boots.  You can get those on eBay or through e-stores that sell BJD shoes such as Alice's Collections.


EDIT: I hand sew a lot so maybe you could put in the title or dead noting which sewing method works best?

Either method will work just as well. 
In the listing description on Etsy I have a section titled "What You'll Need", and I list either hand needles or a sewing machine as the tool of choice. :)
