I made these two outfits from vintage Revlon doll patterns. I love how they fit Ellowyne – and I figure the vintage look suits her storyline as a girl who thrifts her wardrobe. Many of these patterns don’t call for linings but I decided to try adding a tulle lining to the midriff top. It worked out great – and it’s a lot easier than fussing with pressing ¼” seams on curved neck and arm openings. And, of course, the inside is a lot neater. Plus, it’s a time-saver because separate darts don’t need to be made for the lining. Instead, the darts are sewn into the tulle and fashion fabric together.
