What is rickrack trim? And how do you #sew it onto #dollclothes?


Two weeks ago I posted patterns and tutorials for making this adorable summer top to fit vintage Crissy dolls. (It fits a bunch of other dolls too. Click here to see a list of the dolls who can wear this pattern.)

This image shows a close-up of the Ideal Toy Corporation vintage Crissy doll with extendable hair modeling a recently hand-sewn dress that's made of a 70's style of fabric.

Then, rather foolishly, I included links to the tutorial for making this skirt:

Of course my regular followers wanted to know more about the skirt that I had designed to go with the Crissy outfit, the skirt that uses ribbon and rickrack…

So after viewing the other skirt tutorial, you were probably wondering…

  • Where do you buy rickrack ribbon?
  • Is this even the right video for making the Crissy skirt?
  • How come the video doesn’t show us how to make that fancy trim?

In answer to these questions, I’m re-posting this rick rack video. It shows you the many ways to create your own trim using rick rack.

I’m also planning to re-post the Crissy doll patterns tomorrow with a new video showing me making the specific rick-rack-ribbon trim that you see on the Crissy skirt.

Sorry if that caused a bit of confusion. Hopefully this video and tomorrow’s tutorial will clear things up for anyone who wanted to re-create the exact skirt that I made for Crissy.

If you like my free patterns and videos, please show your appreciation by likingpinningtweeting, and/or somehow sharing this video with others.
