I used to do a blog post under the category “Tape Measure Tuesday,” and I’ve been thinking about bringing this feature back. After all, when it comes to sewing, measurements are important!
They help you decide whether or not your favorite doll can swap clothes (and sewing patterns) with other dolls of a similar size and shape.
Today I’d like to get a little feedback from my followers. The question is simple: Should I bring back the #TapeMeasureTuesday feature?
It takes time to measure a doll, and frankly, a lot of people who are new to sewing for dolls don’t know what to measure or how to measure their dolls.
So the #TapeMeasureTuesday blog posts provided measurements for various dolls, and that way, even inexperienced sewists could find the measurements, all ready to go, for whatever sewing projects they were working on.
I got rid of the feature because it didn’t get many views; however I still get questions related to doll measurements.
In fact, earlier this month, I received a question from someone who was sewing for a vintage Holly Hobby doll, and she wanted to know which of my doll clothes patterns would fit it. To answer her question, I went to my doll collection and measured a dozen different dolls to see which ones had the closest measurements to her Holly Hobby.
I kept those measurements, and I could post them here, if it will help people with similar issues. But I’m wondering how helpful it really is, since those blog posts got very few views in the past.
Should I bring back this feature on ChellyWood.com? And if I do, will you find it helpful? Please share your thoughts and ideas!
