Ballerina Paper Doll - Long Tutu


Last week we made a ballerina paper doll, this week we are going to dress her for her recital. I recommend printing out the pattern and then cutting it out and tracing it onto watercolor paper or cardstock. These papers will take marker or paint well without rippling or buckling. If you don't want to heavier paper; i still recommend printing her out and tracing her onto a new sheet of computer paper. This way you won't have the graph lines on your doll and tutu. As you can see in the photo at right, both the doll and the outfit will fit on a single sheet of computer paper when traced side by side.

For the paper doll pattern Look Here.

If you don't want to print out the pattern you can copy the pattern by hand. To do this you can create a 1/2 inch grid by measuring every half inch and making a pencil dot all the way down and across, on both sides of a piece of 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper. Then use your ruler or straight edge to connect the dots with your pencil. Then draw the pattern lines into each square of your grid, exactly as they are shown in my design.

You can make several outfits, in different color combinations, for different dances. The colors I have used are merely a suggestion, but you can certainly use them. After coloring your outfit, think about embellishing it with glitter, small stick on stones or anything else you like, your only limit is your imagination.Here is a photo of my doll in her new tutu.

The designs in these photos are my own and may be copied for your personal use but may not be used commercially.



Make Clothes for 18 Inch Dolls The most popular dress on the Doll Making Site, The Spring Dress for 18 Inch Dolls, is included as well as 5 other outfits, underwear, and accessories such as jewelry, a bag, a knitted hat and scarf, and the new scrub suit. There are also patterns for slender Magic Attic type dolls as well as full-bodied American Girl dolls and an antique Saucy Walker doll from the 1950's.
If you love 18 inch dolls, and want a collection of patterns for a wardrobe, all in one handy Ebook, this is for you! All these patterns are available on the Doll Making site, but I have brought them all together in one book for ease of finding and using them.
