The Leg-cessories pattern is super helpful for legwear. I made jeggings for my doll with this pattern and they're a perfect fit. Includes any length leggings and any length socks!
I was able to do this completely in cotton (without the more advanced optional step in the top). Easy to follow, and created a beautiful dress!
The body is pretty easy and looks good but as soon as it comes to the hood the pattern makes absolutely no sense. I spent 3 days on this pattern and it ended up being a total waste of time and resources.
I'm really happy with the dresses from this one, they're just darling and fit together well. The directions even had a tip for gathering that I hadn't heard before, and helped me with other projects as well!
Nice enough pattern, condensed and easy to follow instructions. I purchased this pattern after getting commissioned to do some tiny replica's of real vintage kimono for an art exhibit. I made a mock up which was pretty quick to do, if you frequently make doll clothes this will be a very quick project for you.
Unfortunately the client wasn't happy with the mock up, pointed out how the sleeves were all wrong and didn't have that distinctive drop shoulder look that kimono have. I was able to tweak and redraft the pattern to fix a few things and look more like a traditional kimono to a standard that my client was happy with while keeping the bulkiness down. In the future I will definitely purchase more patterns from Requiem Arts Design if they are for western style clothes and if I am ever commissioned to do something like this again I will have the client approve the pattern first before I purchase (live and learn!).
So summary is; good pattern but very westernized.
I was very pleased to find a pattern like this, since I'd missed out on a similar sort of outfit from the Nendoroid Doll series. This pattern resizes easily and fits like a dream. My doll looks so cute in it, and everyone thinks I'm a sewing genius. Nope--I just had a great pattern to go from!
I've made several dresses and pinafores from this pattern. Easy to scale up and down, fits great. Once you get the hang of the basic dress, you can add as many embellishments as you want to make your dresses more unique.
I've been using these patterns for Obitsu-11-sized bodies (like Nendoroid Dolls) so scaled them down to the recommended 75%. They are PERFECT. The only downside for Nendoroid Doll people is that ND's big heads won't fit in the hoodie's hood. That's it. Everything fits; everything looks super-cute.
The simple pattern for the trousers earned me a puzzled look with an explanation of "I guess if you can't tell it's handmade it is a compliment"
I think it took about 5 minutes to sew them together. Quick and easy!
The waistline could perhaps be a little higher, but that is an easy alteration. A super little pattern for a doll size that is treated as an afterthought by the manufacturer!
I got this pattern several years ago know, but only finally sewed it this month. It was a bit of struggle, since I'm a beginner, but I think the end result was pretty good considering. I made it twice and I really like the variety of options for making the dress slightly different depending on what you want. It looks great and I learned a lot. I'd recommend it.
Got this pattern because the moment I saw Natasha, I knew I wanted to put her in a white kimono. Don't actually have her yet, but I have made the pattern. It was fairly easy to follow the directions, and I am pretty much a beginner. The step-by-step instructions with pictures are very useful. Thank you so much for this pattern and for the others you make, they are amazing.
I'm very fond of all the RequiemArt pattern. They are all well drafted with good instructions. I also appreciate that they are not overly detailed or fussy, but let the user embellish however they wish. I could probably have made this outfit using the kimono pattern (which I already have) but it easier to just use this pattern. I made the outfit out of reclaimed silk from old kimonos. IMO, the skirt needed to be fuller; I will cut a larger skirt next time. I do not care for the 1/8" seam allowance, so I redraw all the pattern pieces increasing the seam allowance to 1/4".
Easy to follow instructions, as always. The results look like her images. I love how fast the pants work up!
I kinda wish the pants included shorts and Capri cut lines, but you can figure them out for yourself, easily enough.
Instructions are easy to follow and taught me some new tricks. The results were three different suits, all unique to the guys' styles, but each one was a perfect fit!
I've now made several different dresses using this basic pattern. I love it!
Instructions are clear and easy to follow.
I'm still hoping we'll see more for these dolls, like a Kigurumi or pajama set. My girls are always asking for pajamas.
Wonderful pattern, tons of options to design a look specific for your doll!
