This week’s pattern is Convertible Mini Dresses for the curvy 1/3 dolls: DD, Smart Doll, and a bunch of BJDs with more curvy proportions like the lovely Fairyland F60 pictured above!
This pattern has been pretty popular in the other sizes I’ve done it in: It’s quick, it’s versatile, and it’s a lot of fun. There’s something about being able to mix and match looks, and the fact that you don’t have to make a whole new dress for each look is a huge time saver!
Variations for size in this pattern include bust size (self explanatory) and thigh gap (!?!!) Yeah, I was pretty surprised too! But look at the comparison chart I did:
See, the Dollfie Dream Sister? Her thighs are wider apart than her hips for some reason. Not the kind of measurement a girl usually takes, you know? They can pivot inward so the knees get slightly closer together, but those upper thighs man, they are just super wide and stay that way >.< So to make sure clothes fit her, a variation was included that makes the skirt part below the hips a little wider. I want clothes made from my patterns to fit ALL THE DOLLS! (or at least as many as possible)
I hope you enjoy it! The core dress only takes about 15 minutes to sew up: about as fast and easy as a sock dress, but infinitely classier 🙂
