How to make doll outfit 4 – knit dress


Hello, Winter is here So, today I’m going to show you how to make a knit dress Yes, a pair of sock is all you need They better have some length so ankle sock will not do Sock are great because they are inexpensive and they have nice patterns on them first, put the sock on your doll you gonna see how long the dress going to be I estimate about 10 – 12cm will do Fold the collar of the dress in we are going to sew a curve line later Turn it inside out Carefully sew a line Sew another line to make sure it don’t fray Do the same to the back then you should have a collar of at least 6cm Now we will sew the shoulders Sew a slightly diagonal line from collar to the side Same to the other shoulder Cut the unwanted parts you can already see the shape of the dress Cut both sides opened later we are going to sew a hole for the arms 3cm from the shoulders Fold and sew a line same to the other arm hole Put the dress back together we’ll sew a curve line from the arm pit to the bottom of the dress Sew from the bottom of the dress up Cut the unwanted parts It’s a good idea to seal up the edges to make sure it doesn’t fray Turn the dress inside out To wear it, I recommend removing the arms and put it back later You can simply wear the remaining sock on her head but you can see it’s so tight that it’s squashing her hair So I did some work on it Cut the sock opened Use the remaining materials to add some extra length. For the extra piece, fold and sew a line Sew it to the hat piece, make it a tube Now run a needle though the top of the hat Make sure you don’t lose the end of the thread pull it into a tight nob Turn the hat inside out Now it fits her head a lot better This is her new knit dress with hat Great to go with some accessories Have fun sewing and see you next time

  1. That was such a great idea! 🙂 I am deffinetly gonna make one once I get the money to buy socks lol :p just gotta wait till me b-day wich is the 29th of april so its too long to wait ^^

  2. This is incredibly clever!! I'm going to make my Pullip a sock-dress like this to wear under her coat– the coat I'm making from another one of your videos!! You're a genius, thank you for these fabulous videos!!

  3. thx but i got another way by just seeing your viodeo you dont have to sew any more.
    anyway thx for aplodin……

  4. Wow! Thanks for this video. I've tried with patterns but they are very tedious. I love your freestyle sewing. Do you use a special thread to sew this dress with? Also, could you please give me an average size for the sock used?

  5. @pebc7 Thanks. That happened to me too. I prefer not to work with pattern. I use normal thread to sew. Socks are regular woman size.

  6. This is such a great tutorial. I've just finished my first attempt and it looks pretty good, considering I did it quite lazily and I don't have a sewing machine so it was all hand-sewn. Your instructions are really simple to follow. I'll definitely try making another outfit from your videos once I get some material 🙂 I love this outfit because all it takes is a really cute sock!

  7. even doe i don't have any pullip i'm just get inspired by your work i live in philippines someday i'm gonna get some pullip and make some clothes for them and follow what you've done to their clothes love lots veron add me in facebook my email is [email protected] i'm 11 yrs old

  8. @cancerleoa45 all type has removable arms. for type 3 and 2, the leg joint can be remove too.

  9. @SuperBlackcat1999 thanks, but the sock use already patterned. To add more would be overdone and tacky.

  10. I fond that this actually fits barbie better it's looser on pullips but on barbie they fits really well as an off shoulder dress.

  11. You are a very talented sewer, self taught! Great job. You make it look so easy. I am 53 and just now getting "into" Pullip, Tangkou and I have a Blythe too. I am very impressed with your video's and hope to be as good as you one day. Thanks for sharing and please keep it up 🙂

  12. Lovely coat. I'd love to make this. Is that a mini Pullip or regular sized one? I printed the pattern and it looks very small. I wanted to make this for a Bratz doll.

  13. OMG OMG OMG!!!! THAT DOLL IS MY FAVORITE PULLIP DOLL!!! In Second Place is Miku. I LOVE THIS VIDEO!!! GREAT JOB, kinda tough to make though.

  14. My g-daughter loves your work.  **She loves the doll that you are using, can you please tell me the type of doll you are working with?
