You will begin by getting to know Caro, his beginnings in the creation of characters with wool felt, and how his passion for making miniature clothes came about. In addition, you will know its influences and everything from where it takes inspiration to create.

You will review the basic sewing materials you will use, such as yarns, needles, fabrics and, also, you will learn the basics of hand stitching with some stitches. If you have a sewing machine, you will learn how to use it, knowing the threading, how to achieve the first stitch, how to fill a spool and how to finish.

Next, Caro will teach you how to create your own pattern by taking the measurements of your doll, and then transfer them to paper. Then, you will see how to make modifications to it, to achieve a pincer, cleavage, pucker, etc.

Your first clothes will be basic: some socks and a pair of pants. Then you will make a shirt with raglan sleeves and a skirt, the latter with French stitching. The next level will consist of creating a little more complicated garments: a jeans shirt and pants. And as advanced level garments, you will make a dress and, as a star piece, a hooded coat.

By the end of the course, you will have made eight incredible pieces of miniature costumes.

What is this course's project?

You will create a coat with hood and miniature inner lining, with some details.

A course by Carolina Alles


As a child, Carolina Alles, better known as Caro Indy, played making clothes for her dolls. Today he continues to do so as part of his profession.

He is a loyalist, specialized in needle felting or needle felting, a technique that allows him to sculpt the fabric and create his own characters. But what makes his work more special is the way he manages to get his characters to have their own personality and the way in which he incorporates them into all kinds of projects from other disciplines, from a children's story to children's favorite toy. .
