Amigurumi: Clothes!

Here she is in a simple skirt and shirt.

I made them both on her, just working in the round off the stitches at her waist and neck. I threw in color changes here and there to lend the outfit some style.

The sleeves on the shirt were the only tricky part. I ended up skipping four stitches of the round at each shoulder, chaining four under each armpit, and continuing around and around the body of the shirt. Afterward, I worked the sleeves around her arms.

One tip I discovered about making clothes attached to dolls: do the hair after the clothes. Especially if your doll will have bushy hair. It really gets in the way sometimes.

I’ve learned a lot from fiddling around with this doll, which I’ll be able to apply to future dolls. But for now, I think it’s time to try amigurumi animals!

Happy Yarning.
