					How to Craft Camille Outfit
How to choose materials

Do you have Camille? Would you like to create an outfit for her, yet you
have no clue where to start? If you answered yes then continue reading,
since we are going to design Camille a fashionable suit.

To start you will need materials. You will need 40 inches of pink plain-
woven, fine fabric made of linen and/or cotton. The fabric is needed to
make Camille’s loose fitting pants that gather at the ankle, as well as
her underskirt. Purchase 2 ¼ yards of soft lightweight, fabric with small
prints and made up of wool. The material is used to create Camille’s cape
and her dress. You will need 28 inches of material for the cape, such as
stiff shining, silk lining. (Taffetas) Purchase 26-inches of entredeux
and 6 ½ yards of brown lace edging. You will need some thin lace edges,
(30 inches-2/5 inches) and matching poly-cotton DMC-4442 thread. The
thread will match your plain-woven fabric, which you will need DMC-4446
(light brown) to coordinate with your soft, lightweight, pink fabric. To
make a rose, purchase 3 ¼ yards of ribbon. You will need ¼-inch buttons,
one/8 inch level elastic, and 3 ¼ yards of silky spherical cord to finish
your rose.

Once you gather your materials, you will need to cut a fold at the front
region of the bodice, and cut another two at the back. Next, cut the fold
of the skirt front and two at the back. Cut two pantaloons, i.e. the wide
pants that gather at the ankle. Once you cut out your patterns use the
50-point pale brown DMC cotton broder to stitch your lace.

Now that you have your materials, you can design Camille an outfit. For
those who are not familiar with Camille we can briefly describe the doll
in case you want to purchase her and create a dress later.

Camille is a gorgeous doll, which stands around 25 inches tall. Camille
includes the collection edition, regency or the Victorian series.
Jennifer Esteban is the original creator of Camille. Camille wears
collected sleeves and folded skirt, as well as a taffeta cape. Camille
also wears batiste underwear, which the lace is pale brown. The pantaloon
and skirt extending from the petticoat is also laced with pale brown

To make Camille’s dress you will need to start with her pants, or
pantaloon. Once you complete the pantaloons, you can move to the
undergarments. We can get started now on the project, yet you must find
information to help you complete. Unfortunately, a single article cannot
produce the length required to make up a complete outfit.

How to make Camille’s Pantaloons:
At the over-locker, begin French stitching the seams, collecting them at
the back and front. Press and then turn the seams under the cover on your
folded line. Press the garment again and create a minute size hem at the
cover. Stitch a straight line at the cover. You want to leave space to
thread from side to side your elastic. Around the edges of your crown,
stitch in a straight line in the direction of your cover.
Now you can use starch, spray your fabric, and press once you finish. Cut
two, 7 ½ inches length of lace and stitch a row at the edge of the legs
near the bottom of the pantaloons. On the right area, press your lace so
that it folds back. Perform a crisscross stitching pattern over the crown
of your lace. Your stitches should entwine with both the lace and fabric.
Near the crisscrossing stitches, cut the extras. Next, trim two, 7 ½
inches of your entredeux. Use your starch, spray, and then press. You
will need to trim the ends that extend to the entredeux and the edges of
your lace where it crisscrosses, meeting the other, and connecting it.
Press and you can move to connect the seams of the legs to the crotch.
Align and gather the legs and ankles by threading ribbon so that it goes
through the entredeux.
