Fashion Feature: Add Pockets to Your Doll Clothes

There are so many ways to change up your sewing patterns to create your own unique doll clothes. One of my favorite fashion features is to add a pocket (or two) to a simple garment. Some of my patterns include pattern pieces to add a pocket (HalterAlls for example) but any square or circle scrap of fabric can work too.

It’s easy to add pockets to doll clothes sewing

Enjoy these outfits that POP with the addition of pockets.

Look closely at Joss’ top. I cut the white fabric and lining as usual, then added a square of lace (Larger than the pieces) between the right sides before I sewed it together. Once it was sewn, I trimmed it to the same size as the top and carefully turned it to give a soft, pretty lace overlay. Even such a simple pattern can offer a surprise design element.
