It has come to our attention that Hittys exist in the world who actually have no under clothes. This situation has even been known to happen in the Quimper Hitty cupboard.
Some Hitty dolls like the freedom of cavorting around in breeches and wear them under sun dresses, or as comfortable trousers.
I have been asked by some friends to prepare a blog tutorial on my method of making breeches, and hope that this might be useful. I used a lace-edged hanky to make the ones illustrated, but there are various ways of finishing the hems as illustrated in the picture above.
Click on any picture to get into the gallery, and then navigate by using the forward and back arrows. Please note that all the stitching is done by hand, as I find it difficult to get the machine to sew doll clothes without chewing them up.
Constance approves of these breeches – they match her pleated pinafore which she is wearing as a sun dress! The Pinafore instructions can be found if you click here.
