I really love the character of this cloth doll and was so much fun to make and photograph, which I tried to capture in this day dreamy pose. I also discovered how real clothes can be cut, sewn and adapted to make mini versions for the cloth dolls. Her T-shirt was taken from a section of a real skater Tee and the socks and beanie were originally a pair of socks.
Her outfit is fairly simple, so I am going to let the photos speak for themselves.

The Beanie, Socks and Trainers
The trainers were inspired by Adidas Shell Toes using a pattern that I made from scratch. They were hand sewn using felt and embellished with eyelets and ribbon to create the laces detail.
I will be posting a tutorial on how to make the socks, beanie and trainers very soon.
