*Empty can (watch containers)
*Thread and needle
1.one small piece of cloth(10cms by 15 cms).
2.another piece a bigger one(30cms by 60cms).
3. In the small piece of cloth make a hole in the centre.sew the edges.Now remove the head insert the piece of cloth and replace the head.Tie a thread around the hip to make the dress fit.
4.Now take the bigger piece of cloth you can change the measurements according to your needs.Now gather small pleats .Put the skirt for the doll and can pull the thread of the dress according to the hip size adjust and fasten it.
5.Adjust the blouse and skirt.when it is ready keep in empty canand stuff cotton or sponge to make the doll stand erect.This will also increase the height of the doll.
