It's gonna be a BIG file, so I suggest you download and go over it slowly.
Pictures will remain very large, and the text is going to look even larger in fullview-download.
This is a tutorial explaining how I went about making the dress for the collaboration between *pheleon
and I. How I made the dress from the body form she sent me.
It is not a Full tutorial in the sense that I should you every step of how I made the dress. It's more of an overview and the ideas and concepts can help show you how you can make your own clothes for plushies. Also helps you visualize the piece patterns and see the starting point to finish how they all come together.
This concept can also be applied to BJDs (Ball Jointed Dolls), but please consider that you should not, and probably can not stick pins into a BJD. If you do some exterior pinning (like pinning the fabric outside to shape the fabric, should be ok).
Any questions? Ask away, I will try to answer to the best of my ability.
