Pattern: RennDress for BJDolls by taeliac Pattern: RennDress for BJDolls by taeliac
:star: This is a full PDF pattern that you print out on your own and make yourself :star:

I do believe this PDF works just fine - I have tested it in OS X and WinXP and it worked fine. It is a large file, so it will take a bit to download.

:bulletred: To open a PDF, you will need Adobe Reader or a similar PDF viewer to open, and the ability to un-zip files

:bulletblue: If you do make an outfit with this tutorial and post it, I would absolutely adore you if you could send me a link to the finished piece (and if it's up on dA, I'll :+fav: it and possibly feature it, too!)
You have no idea how many thousands and thousands of views/downloads my other tutorials have, and only a very few ever show me what they make with them... it's really depressing! So, please share them with me, please?

:pointr: Please do note that I do assume you have basic sewing knowledge to make this - I'm not walking you through how to sew, but rather, how to make something with basic skills.


While I was cleaning out my basement, I found a clip with a bunch of different doll patterns wedged in a corner! So, I finally decided to do something with them!

This is a basic under-dress for an SD (~60cm) girl, meant to be made out of a light to mid weight knit fabric. The pattern itself is paged - you'll have to tape multiple together after cutting everything out to get the whole pattern piece - I always forget how tall they are!

Included is the instructions on how to make it, as well as lots of information on how to customize it.

All of the pattern pieces are to scale, but please remember to read the READ ME about printing, to be sure that they are to scale.

This was a labor of about an hour to drape the pattern and transfer it to paper, another two to make the original one, a couple to clean up/alter, and then all day yesterday (9 hours!) of tracing the images with Illustrator to get a nice, clean pattern piece, as well as writing up the instructions!

So, what do you think?

I do plan on having more patterns for dolls available for purchase in my Etsy storefront in the near future, but I thought I would share this one with my dA friends for the heck of it!

:star: Please, as always, I would ask that you do not sell anything you make with this tutorial.

I am appealing to your conscience about this. This took me a huge amount of time to do to be the best possible, and I would truly appreciate it if you did not make money off of my incredibly hard work.

Hi I am trying to get the pattern for this outfit for my girl but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Did you take it down or have you put it up on your etsy for sale?

No, it should still be up here... let me check on it, though. I wonder if dA is being weird or something, or if it's on my website, I have to renew my hosting plan when I figure out how to pay them (foreign bank accounts are a pain in my butt!)
