I joined in to a new game on DoA. The point of the game is to complete one full outfit in a month. I would like to sew outfits inspired by 1950s for my Iplehouse Jessica with large breast and Iplehouse Soo with small breast.
I found a book with pattern construction that was issued in 1959. As I thought that the patterns from this book are suitable for 50s fashion underwear I made a panties’ pattern and sewed them.
Attempt number one: the pattern, a front and a back view of panties.
I liked the front view of the panties, but I didn’t like the back view. Thus I decided to make another pattern and sew new panties.
Attempt number two.
I liked these panties more.
Attempt number three.
I decided that the green, second, panties are too tight for the doll and I wanted to make them a bit loose. I just added 3 mm at each seam, but this gave 1,2 cm in total. Thus the new panties are too loose for the body now. I also made top-stitching on the panties, but it is not visible on the fabric.
Attempt number four.
Using the same patterns book I made perfect pansies for Iplehouse SID body as well.
Then I sewed a waistband to the petticoat, and it didn’t perfectly fit to the doll. I thought it would be better I’d used a facing instead of the waistband. Of course, I understand that the petticoat will be invisible under the dress but I prefer perfectly sewn clothes, so I’ll better sew one more petticoat.
Petticoat for Iplehouse SID body with tulle frill (which is 7.5 meters long!).
Second and third attempts.
After I changed the dress pattern due the mistakes I sewed the 2nd prototype dress. It was so awful that I even didn’t take pictures of it. Next I made a new pattern again and sewed the 3rd prototype dress to check the new pattern. The main problem in making patterns for Iplehouse Jessica that my doll has really huge bust :) It’s not easy to make the dress perfectly fit in chest.
The 3rd attempt looks better for my opinion but still needs to make some adjustments.
