Kidz n Cats Sundress and Braid Bun Hair

I sewed up a sundress for my Kidz and Cats doll out of a shirt.  The original top already had the shirring, so all I had to do was cut a rectangle and sew a seam on one side to make a tube.  The original top also had strings, which I cut and sewed to the sundress to make a halter top style.  I made a similar dress for my American Girl Doll here.  You can read about the matching flower headband in the pictures below there as well.

For this bun, I put the headband on first.  Afterwards, I took a section on each side from near the ear and braided it.  I then had two braids on each side, and a large lock of hair in the middle.  middle section of hair I twisted up into bun, securing it as I went with bobby pins.  Once I had the bun in place, I wrapped the braids around and pinned them.

Hairdos — A Bun

To do this bun, you will need a doll hairbrush, a spray bottle, two hair ties, mini bobby pins and a hair net (optional).

Start by making a ponytail.  See here for my previous post on a ponytail.

DSCN4578Move the hair, so the curls go outward and it looks something like this:

DSCN4589Now you will need to use bobby pins to pin the bun in place.  I used Mini Goody pins.
DSCN4593 They are the perfect size for dolls!DSCN4596Take a pin, and stick it into the edge of the bun, straight towards your doll’s head.  While pushing it down and in, make sure to get it into the hair that is on the head.  Don’t push the pin into the wig, just the hair.
DSCN4597 One you’ve attached the pin to the bun and the hair on the head, push it in.DSCN4598Put bobby pins in all the way around to keep the bun in place.

If your doll will be doing ballet, she may need a hairnet over the bun to make sure no hair starts to fly away.  I used the hair net that my Rebecca arrived in.

DSCN4605 Put the hairnet over the bun.  If there is excess, twist and put the net over again.  I didn’t have enough excess net to do this, so I just tucked the extra in underneath the hair of the bun.DSCN4606Secure the net with bobby pins.
