    Thank you for this tip, Rosie. I remember when Velcro was first invented. IMHO, when it comes to ease of use, it sure beats the alternatives of zippers, buttons, or snaps for closures, and this is doubly true with doll clothes,

    • My pleasure Judy. Yes, I totally agree that Velcro is super easy and makes the ideal closure for doll clothes. 🙂

    Thanks Rosie for sharing this tip with us. I know it will come in handy when I start sewing with knits and other stretchy fabrics.

    • My pleasure Pat. And remember, you can also use it when sewing with woven fabric to give you extra room on the bodice if you ever need to. Happy sewing 🙂

    Wow !!!!!!
    Thank you so very much for the tip !!!!
    So, when I come across to that situation……. I’ll know what to do ??? Thank you for sharing all of your videos, and tips ?

  4. What a cool idea. I never would have thought to make one strip of Velcro wider than the other to make it so that when you cut a garment a bit too small, it might still be salvaged. Thanks for posting this.

    • My pleasure Julie. I use this technique often with the doll clothes I sell but have the larger piece of Velcro on top of the bodice so that it gives flexibility to the size of the dress and can be worn by various size dolls.

    I wish I had seen this great tip sooner! I just gifted about 15 doll outfits to my granddaughter and this would have come in handy! ??‍♀️ I will definitely save this for the future:)
    Thank-you so much,

    Wow, thanks for this tip. I have been avoiding making clothes from the doll clothes patterns collected over the years. This I will try soon. Be well and Happy.

    • Great to hear you’re now ready to try this tip with all the doll clothes patterns you have. Just be warned, once you start sewing for dolls, you will be hooked! Happy sewing. 🙂
