He's just perfect! My little White Rabbit Amadeus.  

He truly is, his sculpt is so delicate with that subtle rabbit look. Volks outdid themselves with this cutie! And his little clothing set is outstanding. He's my first Volks lottery win, I didn't get Lorina but I managed to take this sweetheart home.

Yo's are so hard to resist, I know we humans are programmed to like baby faces but really!  Even if I don't really like sewing for this size I keep wanting to add them to my brood.

Oh!!! I saw Amadeus on Flickr before, so you're his owner! I got a White Rabbit recently too, I'd say it's the sweetest sculpt from Volks ever! I actually found this blog through your sewing entry on DOA, your handmade suits are toooo professional, would you ever make a tutorial please?

Sewing jackets.
White Rabbit is the sweetest little Yo!
I have not invented any new sewing techniques for my suit. They are basically sewn exactly the same way you would make one for a real person. There are several good books out there explaining all these techniques better than I could ever do.
I can tell you that I now set in my sleeves by hand, I used to do it by sewing machine but I find it's easier by hand and I have more control over the sleeve. I also set in the lining by hand.
When you are making a suit jacket the most important thing is to fit the shoulder area of the jacket to the doll. Make a cotton muslin first for this reason, once the shoulders and upper chest is ok the rest is easy. The shoulders are most important because that is the point from which the jacket hangs.
To get a better look on the shoulders I make small shoulder pads it makes the shoulder and sleeve head look smoother.
Make sure you use very thin wool or natural fiber fabric, weight is very important you do not want a bullky fabric. Make sure the fabric takes steam well, so it's easy to press.

Best Regards
Dominique
