Finishing Up MSD Month … even though it’s a little late

Greetings, Internet~Land! I know we’ve already entered into August, but I wanted to finish up our MSD projects with this last pattern set. This design idea was found and shared in one of my facebook groups. It is really cute, but we didn’t know where to find it. I thought it would be fun to draft a pattern for it, so we could make it ourselves! I hope you find it helpful and that it can also be used to alter into some of your own unique designs!

Back to Work in MSD Month

Greetings, my Internet~Land friends! We had a shuffling of the schedule at work due to some new construction. Today is the last day before heading back to the job. With the change in work days, I know next weekend will be a short one, so I decided to post this new pattern set a little early. It’s a cute pajama set with two types of top options ~ a button-up and a pull-over. The pattern was originally designed for the Tonner / Wilde Imagination Evangeline, but will work for most MSD size BJDs, since it has a pretty loose fit. You will only need to adjust the length on the pant-legs (and possibly the sleeves) to match the size of your own doll. Evangeline is 18.25 inches tall, and most of the height is in her lanky legs. You can check out the end of my “Sewing MSD Puff Sleeve Dress” video on YouTube (linked in the previous post) to see a small fashion show comparing the fit of the dress on several doll body types, including Evangeline. Wishing you lots of sewing fun and creativity!

BJD MSD Month Continues!

Hello, everyone in Internet~Land! I hope this post finds you safe, well, and happy. To stay in tune with our MSD theme, I have a new pattern set and a new sewing video. This pattern is designed for the 17″ (43cm) Tonner Matt body style, and may fit other similar sized MSD BJDs. It contains pieces for a T-shirt, hoodie, and sweat pants. The Hoodie can be sewn as either a jacket or pull-over.

The new video is how to sew the MSD Puff Sleeve Dress pattern (linked in a previous post as well as on my Ready To Print page). It shows pretty much all of the sewing, so you can follow every step! The sweatsuit picture, PDF file, and new video are all linked below. Enjoy!

A Little MiroDoll Basic Set

Happy Saturday, Internet~Land! Today we have a new Basic Pattern Set as well as a quick updated look at how to make one. This video has less “chit~chat” and “more action.” (hee hee hee) We are adding this 1/4 scale mature female body style to the collection of MSD Patterns. Be sure not to confuse this style with Miro’s other 1/4 scale female body which is a more youthful style. I think this one has a much slimmer waist and more of an hour-glass shape. Hoping this will be helpful and wishing you lots of fun in all your dolly ventures!

I Think July 2020 Is BJD MSD Month!

Greetings to all my friends in Internet~Land! Lately, I have had several requests regarding MSD size BJDs. I must confess, I don’t design or sew much for this size, as I am more partial to the larger SD size dolls. Most of my 1/4 scale projects have been for the Tonner 16″ fashion doll bodies. Fortunately, many of these clothing items have been able to transition to the BJDs pretty easily. After taking a look at the thickness of my SD files in comparison to the MSD files, I thought this could be a fun project for the month of July. So, buckle-up all you MSD lovers ~ FUN is coming your way! To start off the list, we will begin with this cute little Puff Sleeve Dress designed for the ever-so-fabulous Minifees! If you have a different style doll, just be sure to check measurements at the shoulder width, bust, and waist to make any needed adjustments. The lace overlay pieces are, of course, entirely optionable, but I thought they could add a more fancy look to the design. As always, stay healthy, safe, and happy sewing!

A Quick Holiday “Hello”

Greetings, Internet~Land! For us here in the US, it’s the Independence Day weekend, and I am very happy for some extra time at home. I’ve been working on some SD (1/3) faux fur wigs in new colors, and have them available in my ebay sales (user/seller name: missyaaster). I’m sorry that at present I only ship to the US, but I do have the pattern available for you to make some yourself. I make sure the fur falls in the directions of the arrows for a more natural hairline when cutting the fabric. Then I hand-stitch a 1/8 to 1/4 inch hem and insert an elastic band into the rim for a snug fit. In the midst of all the craziness in the world right now, I wish for you love, health, safety, and creativity to have happiness in your circle. Much love!

A Hanbok Pattern Set for the BJD SD Ladies

Greetings, Internet~Land! I wanted to come today with a surprise pattern set. The last set was for the fellas. This one is for the SD (1/3) size BJD ladies and has pieces to sew six different garments. The clothing items include a shirt, an underskirt, an overdress, the cropped coat, stockings, and shoes. I liked putting together these pieces and made the video below to show my sewing process. It’s a longer one, so grab a beverage & snack and get comfy! I hope you’ll have as much fun sewing this set as I did. Just click the PDF link to get your free copy of the pattern and enjoy!

A New Hanbok Pattern Set

Greetings, Internet~Land! I hope this post finds you safe, well, and happy. Today I have a new BJD pattern set, and it’s actually pretty extensive. I haven’t posted a set with this many pieces in quite a while. It is designed for the MiroDoll 66cm male body, which will be modeled in the video. If you have a fella of similar size, it should work ~ just be sure to check the measurements of the pieces against your doll. The set includes pieces to make a shirt, vest, coat, pants, stockings, shoes, and two hats (though one hat pattern will need some adjusting as I mention in the video). All in all, I am very satisfied with how everything turned out, and I’m happy to be able to show you all what the finished products look like.

Working on a Doll Trunk & a New BJD Coat Pattern

Greetings, Internet~Land! I thought it was time to finish up some old projects, one of which is this Black Rose Doll Trunk. I also have two others to finish, but decided to film a bit of this one’s process. As my ebay listings state, each part of my trunk is hand measured, cut, and assembled. No kits here! I’m always pleased with how this design finishes. I’ve been tempted to make one of this design for myself!

Along with the new video is a new pattern. This Long Coat fits the Mirodoll 66cm Male BJD. (You can view the pattern image below the video link.) So sit back a spell to see this trunk come to life, and then grab your copy of the Long Coat pattern. Happy Sewing!
