I sewed Anise these pajamas.

What do you think? Sorry for the bad photo, I'm kind of tired now =_=....

SO cute! did you make it sans pattern? ^_^ I wish I could make one for my Mai! I suck without patterns! (and suck with them, but you know. less. )

anyway. LOVELY!!!!

I'm glad you like them! ^__^

Eh heh heh...I have no idea how to draft my own patterns. I just took a pattern from an issue of My Favorite Doll Book and enlarged it to 157 percent (that would be 57 percent larger, I guess!) on my trusty printer/copier/scanner.I know that's a weird number, but it works pretty well!

I've tried enlarging a Jenny pattern to 215 percent to make a dress for Fuuka. It was a little big. More tests, maybe?

I have lots of those Jenny books... what do you think, typically, if you can find the right enlargement amount, are the proportions about right??

It works better for mini SDs (are regular SDs thinner?), for some reason. I find that all in all the fit is good, but the legs are always waaaaaay too long! I might have overcompensated on the pajama pants, but you'd probably have to cut an inch off the length of the pants after you enlarged them. Maybe two.

I wonder if Licca patterns would have that problem? Jenny must have pretty long legs! It's not really that much of a problem, though, because the sleeve length comes out about right.
