This week I got a request for the most unusual sewing job I’ve ever had. Based on a tattoo his girlfriend has, a client needed a Scott Tracy outfit made for a Hello Kitty doll. Scott Tracy is a fictional character from the TV series Thunderbirds, which I had never heard of but was happy to take on the job. I’ve never made an outfit for a Hello Kitty doll; while I always enjoyed making clothes for my Barbies when I was younger, apparel for dolls is not exactly my forte. Hello Kitty’s proportions are fairly strange, which posed some interesting problems to be solved. It’s safe to say that this is one of the most unique jobs I’ve ever done, and I enjoyed the change in pace.
