How To Craft Porcelain Doll Aprons
How to Craft Porcelain Doll Aprons
Now that you have created patterns to make your porcelain doll dress,
you may want to add an apron to enhance her fashion. Aprons are
relatively simple to make. You will need material, including 6 inches
of light colored plain-woven fabrics (Batiste) to make your apron. You
will also need lace, about 3/8 inches with narrowed edges. In addition,
you will need white DMC thread made of poly-cotton, embroidery white
thread, fabric glue and spray, embroidery DMC thread (pink and green;
818-pink; 524-green) and studs for your apron. (OOO-Studs)
Now that you have your items, you can begin making your apron. You can
either procure lace or else design your own edges. In this instance, we
are going to make up edges, such as the scallop and ruffles.
You will need craft paper and pencil to draw your apron pattern. Once
you have the pattern drawn, cut it out. Use your stabilizer spray, at
the bottom untreated edges, spray about 2 inches, and allow it to dry.
Press your rigid fabric. Now, begin sewing a fabric edging, i.e. an
ornamental undulate edge in your fabric. (Scallop) You want to sew
along the bottom untreated edges. Next, sew parallel with the distance
across your skirt. Leave ˝ inch or 1 inch opening at the right side of
your “foot presser.” Avoid sewing overly close to the untreated edges.
TIP: If you use a sewing machine, use your settings to form the scallop method.
Next, use your fabric glue and run it the length of the outside edges
of your pattern. Allow the glue to dry and then cut excessive fabric
using craft scissors to fit. Cut another 15 inches lengthwise of your
fabric and another 4 inches widthwise. You are now ready to start
stitching your ruffles. Sew your embroidery scallop on after you finish
the untreated edges, stitching the edges so that it zigzags. You want
to stitch the seams at the back to the dot and to the hem. Gather your
stitches, running them in a line and at the crown. To create the edge
of your apron, cut any unwanted length.
Apron making is created in a few methods, which include cutting out the
“shoulder straps” and the waistline per outline or pattern. You want to
crisscross when stitching along the thin edges of the lace. Continue
stitching to the middle edges at the back and bring the right edges
collectively to open the apron at the back middle. Now you can fold the
lace, press and add a couple of lines while collecting the stitches
near the edges of the crown of your kilt. Gather and pull up the fitted
kilt, collecting it to meet the waist and compare the middle front as
well as the notch. Make sure the gathered area is even. Stitch
collectively and brush the seams whilst using the crisscross method to
complete your task.
Next, trim the shoulder ruffles in a straight line along the pattern to
sew fabric edges. (Scallop) Now take your stitches, gather, and run a
few lines along the curvatures of the edge of your shoulder ruffles.
Between the notches on your shoulder scrap, place your completed edges
and even them out as you sew the seam lines and the trim. Now, fold the
straps along the folded line. Press your pattern and turn it so that it
falls beneath the untreated edges. Next, sew hidden stitches beneath
the strap, preparing the seams of your ruffles. The shoulder straps can
now go on the waistband, which should compare to the notches. Before
you complete your task, compare the shoulder straps to your doll to
make sure it fits, and then complete your stitching.
