Update: We have figured out how to make our DIY Dollhouse Dolls wearing pants!
To make your own, follow the directions in my first post about these here; there’s no sewing required, and except for the hot glue, this is a plastic-free craft. Instead of adding dresses or skirts over the skin-colored embroidery floss-wrapped legs, just wrap your preferred pants color down and up the legs, securing the ends with a dab of hot glue on the doll’s back.
Of course, once they’re wearing pants, it’s even more apparent that these dolls are not an anatomically correct mirror of human beings. They’ve got some incredibly long legs and short torsos! They remind me of some French movie star from the 1960’s, although I can’t say who that is. Just a general impression, perhaps. You could always make the metal armature with a longer body if you’d like.
And once you’ve made up some dolls in pants, you could make some more in skirts and dresses, to cover all the sartorial possibilities.
Here’s to toys less plastic!
