New Basic Pattern Set

Welcome, welcome, Internet~Land! I am finally feeling a little better. Thank you to all who sent me the kindest & warmest “Get Well” wishes. I appreciate it so much! I had a FULL SEVEN DAYS with 101 degree temperature. My throat & head reeeally hurt, so once in a while I would take some IBUProfen (though I’m not supposed to use it very often) to help with the pain. It would knock the fever down for a while, but as soon as the medicine wore off, the fever would jump right back up again. It’s nice to be over that hazy~dazy~fever~head~space and be able to see & think clearly again. It was so sad to miss work & be at home for a full week, and yet be too sick to do anything enjoyable like sew, design, or do face-ups. I … was … just … sick. But now, I’m more functional, so on to doll stuff!

I am finding that I really do like the newer MiroDoll 66cm male BJD body. I currently have my Granado Pancho head on this body. I just like the hight with the slim proportions. I thought it was time to make a new Basic Pattern Set for him. I got it all ready today, because I want to design some clothing that will fit him, specifically. Right now, he’s wearing some clothing that’s actually designed for the Resinsoul 70cm guys, and it’s easy to see that the items are too big. I have two types of pants I want to make as well as a Letterman style coat but I needed to make a basic pattern set first. Now I have a place to start my designs and know they will fit him correctly. I even included two pieces that are drafted from his feet so we can make shoes!

So ~ for those of you who have this doll, enjoy! I’m not sure how similar this body size is to other brands, but if you have one/some of the other tall, slim fellas, I will post the dimensions below so you can compare and know if this pattern set will work for your doll/s as well.

A Moment To Celebrate!

Welcome, welcome, friends in Internet~Land! I’m so excited about this week’s post. We get to celebrate reaching 500 Subscribers on YouTube! As a “Thank You,” I have prepared a new pattern set just for this occasion. The set consists of a new coat design that is available in four different sizes. Hopefully, you will be able to use one (or a couple) to create your own unique look. (A photo of the pattern pages is posted below the video link.) Again ~ many thanks to all of you who visit here and on YouTube. You make our community what it is!

On a side note ~ I was going to share a link by another person on YouTube as additional information for you about wiring BJDs, but it looks like the creator has removed much of her BJD content from her channel. Hopefully, my video will still give enough info to be helpful.

The Dress To Go with the Jacket

Good evening, Internet~Land. I just wanted to post the sewing video for the dress & leggings that go with the little Bolero jacket we sewed last time. I had the filming done, so just needed to edit them together today. I’m pretty sick, so it’s just a quick post tonight for the tutorial. The pattern is free and can be found in the previous post or on the Ready To Print page. Enjoy & take care of yourselves!
