Dolls House Doll Clothes & Furnishings

Finished Doll ExamplesThe Sue Heaser 1:12 scale Doll Making kits, which are available as a small child, a woman or teenager, and an adult man, are a helpful place to start when deciding how to populate your dolls house.

The doll making kits include a dolls head mould, hands and forearms mould, pipe cleaners, wadding, a hank of dolls hair, and step-by-step instructions on how to construct the doll

Doll Clothes

Once the doll has been constructed, it is necessary to dress it. The style of clothing will be decided by the period you choose.

You can dress your doll in contemporary clothing by designing your own patterns or down-scaling patterns you find on the internet, or you can choose to style your dolls in a retro style from recent history.

It is important to ensure that the fabric you choose has a good drape. A finely woven fabric, such as the silks and prima cottons on this website, will give the best results. Choose either plain colours or fabrics with a small print detail. See the flower print on the child's dress above. Alternatively, colour the fabrics with fabric paints such as Deka Silk or Jacquard Dye-na-flow.

Green and Red Deka Silk PaintHunt around for tiny trimmings, pieces of braid or lengths of lace. Use these to add detail and authenticity to the finished item.

Finely knitted cloth can be used to emulate sweaters and jumpers. Create your own minute garments by crocheting or knitting with tiny needles and fine yarn.

Soft Furnishings

Fabric for Doll House FurnishingsMake an entire luxurious bedroom set from just one metre of Crepe de Chine silk fabric, there's enough fabric to sew sheets, pillow cases, cushions, curtains and even a pretty little night dress. Crepe de Chine has excellent drape, is semi-translucent and a high sheen. The fabric can be dyed to any colour using acid dyes or painted with silk paints.

The prima cotton fabrics have a smooth surface and one metre is enough fabric to dress the whole of the downstairs of a 1:12 scale dolls house. It can be used to upholster sofas and chairs, cover cushions or to make curtains. The finely woven fabric is best dyed using procion mx dyes or painted with Jacquard Dye-na-flow.
