Pattern-making: Trial and Error

I used a different body pattern for this little girl, so when it came time to do a body covering I didn't have a pattern for that. So I am making a new one for this little body pattern. It's trial and error time. I'm on variation 3 of the body pattern.  See the spool of thread?  That gives you an idea of scale.

She is really cute. I am making some 8" dolls. I knew I would have to draw up a second skin pattern. I downsized the regular pattern from your workshop. I usually have to make quite a few adjustments, fitting and cutting until I get a pretty good fit. Yours look very good. You probably have an easier way of doing this than me.

Martha, this small pattern has the head already attached and has a more fullness through the chest and shoulders. At this scale, any slight variation in sewing shows up a lot! I want to do the arms a bit differently and maybe even the legs. Inlove tweaking and designing.
