Social Networking for Fashion Doll Lovers
Maybe I'm being a dull always posting on this community, but I was seeking amazon.uk looking for MH dolls bargains when I saw this
It says that it fits monster high dolls, but I'm not sure. Has anyone tryied this? Here's the website in case you need to take a more proper look to them http://www.fashionetteparis.com/
Which other dolls clothes do you use to dress up your MH dolls? Do you sew them? Do you buy them from other crafters?
Please, let me know
Oh of course you aren't dull!!! I don't post very often, but I love sewing the MH things people find! So keep posting! :-)
I have actually heard of Fashionette Paris, although when I last saw them they hadn't started doing MH clothes. I've never actually purchased from them, but have heard good things about their Barbie outfits!
Speaking of Barbie, if you have basic sewing knowledge, many Barbie outfits can be taken in and altered to fit MH. Many pieces of Bratz & Bratzilla clothes fit MH, (although be wary of ultra short skirts and very low riding pants. (although the pants fit Howleen almost perfectly!) Bratz tops fit Nefera (and Bloodgood) really we all! Same for the Bratz Boys... the shirts and shorts fit the Mh guys really well, but pants are too short.
Personally, I also sew for my own dolls as well as selling items and custom made outfits through my Etsy shop. :-)
I'm undecided yet, but maybe I'll try to buy first original MH fashion packs (despite some of them are getting almost impossible for me to get, but I hope I can finally get Robecca's fashion pack) and they I'll invest in fashionette's items.
I had read that bratz tops would fit MH, but bottoms don't fit that well. Luckily, I've got an old bratz doll which top will fit perfectly my Howleen. I've also found on the Internet that Barbie Stardoll shoes fit MH, but they're harder to find in Europe than MH clothes . What abou Liv or Moxie clothes? There're plenty of them at toy stores and they aren't very expensive.
Unfortunately, my sewing skills are very basic. I will be able to sew something like a doll bed's duvet or maybe a tube dress, but I won't be able to sew something more complex like a jean jacket or a shirt. I want to learn to sew, but I don't have much time ( since I started my new job I can't even finish projects that I've got started, like my coffin bean printables). I hope that in the future I can organize my time better.
Stardoll shoes do indeed fit MH rather well, also if you find any of the Bratzilla dolls...those have actual shoes rather than the foot/shoe combination...they tend to fit MH pretty good too.
With Liv and Moxie you are going to run into the same problem as the Barbie clothe...they are going to be too big.
Actually if you can sew a straight line with a needle and thread you can alter doll clothes! :-) Put the outfit on the doll inside out and do the alterations while it is ON the doll! Taking in the side seams and adding darts is generally all things like dresses need!
Please keep posting Monster Crafts, I'm always happy to have someone to chat about MH dolls with!
I buy Bratz dolls (clothed) at the thrift store so that my MH ghouls can wear their outfits.
Moxie girls clothes fit fairly well, they're a bit large in the waist though.
I have some Liv sandals that I stretch over my MH feet. Stardoll shoes are great. Apparently shoes for Jakks Pacific dolls also fit MH, but I haven't tried any.
I'm also a member of the "not a seamstress" club, and I "alter" clothes to fit with staples, tape, bobby pins, and tiny binder clips. My alterations only last for a photo shoot though. LOL. I appreciate Deb's sewing tips, especially the one about putting the clothes on the doll inside out. I'm hoping to try this.
Like Deborah said, there are beautiful MH clothes on Etsy.
This discussion needs a photo, so here's Draculaura in a top by Moxie Girlz and Bratz skirt. My favorite Frankie is wearing a top and jacket by Moxie Girlz and a Bratz skirt. Scooter Ghoulia is wearing her original dress and a Liv belt. No alterations were made.
That's what I want to do, I want to find some doll clothes at a thrift store or a sale at a toy store and use them for my MH dolls, but I haven't found anything yet (and I'm also looking for old barbie furniture and a doll car that I can repaint for Clawdeen).
When you say that Liv/Moxie clothes are too big do you meen that they're wide or thayt they're too long? Because I can fix a wide skirt but can do anythint with too long sleeves, for example.
So I guess that Moxie Teenz won't fit too, as I've just read that they're 14'' tall. That's a pity because they have a bunch of cool leggins and socks. Luckily, I've also read that Moxie/Liv wigs fit MH Create a Monster pretty well (I like them, but I don't like the wigs they have).
I think I'll try to sew some basic doll clothes on my own andtry to modify other dolls clothes. If there's something that I want and I can't get/do myself, I'll try to find it on etsy.
By the way Annette, where did you got those socks that Draculaura is wearing? I really love them.
Draculaura is wearing tights from her Day at the Maul fashion pack. They're one piece tights but look like thigh-high stockings in the photo.
I found these great looking doll stockings and have heard great reviews about them, but I haven't placed an order (yet). Check out the link. http://thedaughterwhosews.com/
I have some Moxie Teenz dolls and I'm sure tights/stockings would be too large. Those girls are bigger than Barbie! Barbie's tights are loose on MH, especially at the knees.
Good luck with your sewing and thrift hunting. I'd love to see your results, please share them.
Just for fun, a friend made my dolls dresses out of cohesive (sticks to itself) bandage material. Here's a picture. I also used the same bandage material to "lengthen" a Bratz top so that it covers Ghoulia's belly. The skirt is from Toralei's fashion pack.
Here is a link to a photo tutorial on sewing tights for MH dolls that you may find useful.
OMG those stockings are to die for! Thanks for your useful links Anette. As soon as I've got time I'll work more on my MH stuff and upload photos. I hope that this sunday I'll be able to finish my MH printables and take some photos
I've just found some My Scene dolls on the internet and I was thinking... what about her clothes for MH?
