Shirt for Iplehouse EID Guys

This pattern is for a simple, traditional, one-size-fits-all "pirate-style" shirt, made of basic rectangles with off-the shoulder, gathered sleeves and a gathered neckline. It would traditionally have not been open all the way down the front, but I made it that way to make it easier to put on and take off.

Shirt Patterns

Materials

                        - 2/3 yard cotton crinkle gauze or other soft woven fabric
                        - matching coloured thread for sewing, and contrasting thread for embroidery
                        - scissors, pins, needles
                        - snap fasteners

Instructions

1. Download pdf and print out patterns. The patterns are too big for a single sheet of paper, so they've been drawn in parts and need to be re-attached. Cut out the patterns, then using strips of scrap paper glue shirt front and back pieces together at shoulder. Also glue two parts of sleeve pattern together butting paper edges (do not overlap)


2. Pin patterns onto fabric paying attention to straight of grain and folds. Cut out.


3. Sew a rolled hem along both side edges of sleeves. *to make a rolled hem fold the raw edge in 1/4", then fold that over again so raw edge is folded inside. Then stitch.


4. Gather sleeves onto cuffs. *tip for more even gathering - divide width of sleeve end and cuff fabric into quarters, marking with pins, then match up the pins.
5. Finish sleeve cuffs, by folding seam allowances in, folding cuff fabric back, and pinning in place as shown. Hand-stitch neatly with small stitches.
6. Make shirt ties. You can either fold the ties right-sides together, sew along the edge by machine and turn it right-side-out, or, if like me you find it too difficult to turn something so narrow, fold the seam edges in, then fold the ties lengthwise in half and hand-sew. Tie knot in tie at one end.
7. Sew rolled seams along center front edges of shirt. 


Gather shirt neckline onto collar using same technique as gathering sleeves in step 4. Fold collar in half lengthwise, right sides together, and insert non-knotted end of tie, then sew end of collar. 


Turn right side out, fold inside collar edge under and pin into place. Hand-sew with tiny stitches.
8. Sew sleeves onto shirt easing to fit ( just a few small gathers needed) Zig-zag raw edges.
9. Optional embroidered edges. If your sewing machine has fancy stitches, top-stitch sleeve seams on right side, collar and cuffs with a contrasting coloured thread.
10. Fold shirt at shoulders with right side inside, and sew side and underarm seams, leaving 2" at sleeve end open. Clip armpit, and zig-zag raw edges along side.
11. Make rolled hem at bottom of shirt - sew by hand. Sew snap fasteners on cuffs and along front. You can also add buttons, but I chose not to.


Finished Shirt

*Note - when the sample shirt was finished it was way too wide, and I discovered I'd accidentally made the pattern too wide at the shoulder. So, instead of starting over from scratch, I just sewed a tuck on both sides to make the shirt the right width. You won't need to do this, as I have reworked the patterns so they are the correct width. Your shirt will look like this, but without the two tucks sewn up the main shirt body.

More Wired Wings

Make a set of wired wings for your favourite fairy. 

These wings are a slightly more advanced version of 'Simple Wired Wings', and are sewn from semi-sheer fabric, and have wires inserted which slip into pockets sewn onto the back of the costume bodice. 
The tutorial covers the steps involved in making the wings for my 'Mini Topaz'.

'Christine', a Creative Journey

This tutorial will be a little different than my others, as it won't give any patterns. Instead I will document my creative process in making a specific outfit, and share how I figured out and did things. I'm still working on finishing the costume, so updates will be added as I go.
 

Many years ago, my sister and I made a one-of-a-kind art doll which was called "Think of Me". It was our version of Christine, from the stage production of Phantom of the Opera. Carlotta, the leading lady, had been injured in the famous chandelier accident, and Christine made her public singing debut as Queen of Carthage in the opera Hannibal Triumphant.
Christine had been playing the role of slave girl in that opera, but was given Carlotta's skirt to wear over it, and went out to sing "Think of Me"

Ever since getting into BJDs, I've wanted to recreate this costume for one of my dolls. In November 2010 I bought many of the special trims. I went back to the same store, but had to buy different ones as the trims used for my original were no longer available - except for the blue and red fringe.
It took some time to decide which doll to make the outfit for. I knew it would be very dramatic, and could end up quite bulky, so felt my Iplehouse girls were too realistic and with too thick a waist. My Soom and Elfdoll girls, even though they had nice slim waists, both had way too big a bust. In the end I decided that my Supia Rosy would be perfect - she had a beautiful slim body and small bust.
