Prince Adam How-To Tutorial

Happy February!

Thank you for your patience. It took me a few days to get these posts ready. As you may have seen I got a little sidetracked with my Beast project. Thankfully he is complete now and I am getting back on track. 

So, back to this Prince Adam customisation.  In this post, I am going to show you how to turn your Arlo doll base (available in my Etsy store here) to make Prince Adam. This post will include a guide on how to do Adam’s hair, facial features (eyebrows, eyes and nose) and a detailed tutorial on how to make his suit. Also included is a downloadable PDF template for Adam’s suit and accessories (that includes his jacket, trousers, vest and scarf), which are made out of felt. 

I am over the moon with the outcome. I am no seamstress and sewing is not my strongest skill, but thankfully I was able to use the template from Dr Faciliers Jacket. I just altered it to create Adam’s one so it didn’t turn out to be as much work as I initially thought it would be. 

I have to admit that my least favourite part of making dolls clothes is sewing on the sleeves. However, I am finding that the more I do it the easier it gets. If you are not experienced in making doll clothes or even just clothes in general, I would recommend watching a few tutorials first. It will save you a lot of trial and error – and fabric too!

I hope that you found it clear and easy to follow. I tried to add as much detail as possible. However, if you need help with any part of it then I am always available to assist.
