18th Century, the age of enligtenment and frills… Now your monster high (and maybe Ever after high dolls, if you add a little extra around to each piece) dolls can enjoy the style as well! Here’s a few of the dresses I’ve made with the pattern:
The above is made with thin, flowing fabric, like cotton voile/ batiste, if you want spoonflower fabrics, it’s closest to their cotton lawn. You need Fat Quarter to make the full skirt like in the picture above.
You need to add a little bit more seam allowance, if you use heavy/stiff fabrics like the bridal sateen above. It was a left over scrap from a georgian corset I made, a little too heavy for a doll but at least scraps don’t go waste. This time I cut the skirt shorter.
Now this is made from custom miniature fabric, after historical printed cottons from Georgian / Regency era, it’s available to buy in merineiti spoonflower shop currently in white and cream yellow. You only need the test swatch piece to make this! The skirt will however be shorter and less full than the pattern suggests, you need fat quarter for that, but I’ll explain how to adjust to that in the video tutorial (coming soon on Merineiti youtube channel).
