Blythe dolls and doll sewing

For a long time I wanted a Blythe doll, and in July my boyfriend got me one for my birthday. Then for Christmas he got me 2 more! I think they are so cute, and they fit in with my other hobbies (I'd love to make them a 1/6 scale house or shelf house, and I also love to collect Re-ment and other cutesy Japanese goods). People sell Blythe clothes all over Etsy, but they are so expensive, so I've been teaching myself to sew. I also got a sewing machine for Christmas! Anyway, the dresses on the brown haired doll in both pictures I made by hand from free patterns on the internet.

I'm really proud of the striped one b/c it has a collar that looks like a collar and the sleeves aren't wonky like mine usually are. Also, it has bust darts! Yay!

Well done Corinne!!! You did wonderful for teaching yourself! I know people who have sewn along time that avoid stripes and plaids because it is easy to tell when things aren't right on, your dress looks perfect!!! Have fun with your girls!!! Hugs, Barbara

Nice work Corinne! All it takes is practice! I too love Blythe dolls (20++ Blythe in my collection?? Too many to count!)

You have 20? That is insane! Which one is your favorite? I would love to have a Bow Wow Trad but they are so expensive.

Thanks for the compliments!

Ummmm don't really have one favourite, but I am particularly partial to my French Trench (first one), a Mademoiselle Rosebud whose hair I dyed cherry red, and Night Flower.

I've always regretted not getting Merry Skiier and Darling Diva.
