As some of you know, I’m still converting some of my older sewing patterns from JPG images to PDF sewing patterns. Today’s pattern is definitely an older one, and if you’re used to my more modern patterns, which are made digitally, it will surprise you that this wedding dress pattern is hand-drawn, scanned, and from there, I’ve made it into a PDF for your easy download.
Have a look:
See how crooked that skirt is? Oy!
But back in the days when I first made this pattern, I wasn’t a “small business” per se. I was just another “sewing lady” keeping an online journal of her sewing adventures! So the pattern is a bit barbaric, compared to the ones I produce today. Sorry about that.
Still, you should be able to use it (and my very old tutorial videos) to create a similar wedding dress for your own Momoko dolls.
This dress is worn by Juliet (played by Momoko) in my stop motion video called “Romeo and Juliet with Dolls,” which I have completed three of the five acts for. Actually, I’ve finished filming all five acts, but since my daughters grew up and moved away to college, I haven’t had much incentive to finish acts four and five.
Please encourage me to finish the project, in the comments below!
The sewing supplies I used to make my Momoko wedding dress were solid cotton fabric, printed cotton fabric, lace, 1/2 inch ribbons, 1/8 inch ribbons, size 4/0 Dritz snaps, and tiny ribbon roses. (I hope I’m not forgetting anything!)
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls*:
