I was asked to clothe this Jesus doll. There is a stained class window of Jesus surrounded by lambs at church that I chose as inspiration. In the window, he is wearing a simple red robe with a white stole. Once again, my fabric stash came through for me! I used a red/burgundy broadcloth and a very soft ecru organic cotton herringbone.
I simply drew a shape around him leaving plenty of room.
I folded the fabric in half so both sides would be the same. Stitched the sides with 1/4" seams. I hand hemmed the sleeves and used the selvidge as the bottom hem. As for fitting it over his head, I cut a slit in back until it would fit. I serged the edges of the stole.
Jesus is now ready for Vacation Bible School!
