Matching Superhero Dress Up

This project I did a few years ago when my daughter was 3. She wanted to be a Superhero just like our Julie doll!

So I went about creating an outfit for her…

The Cape
I sewed a red cape for Zoe and a matching cape for the doll. I used the Superhero pattern cape pattern for the doll cape.
The star on the cape are embroidery designs that came from the “Superhero Gift Set”, embroidery design set.

The Mask and Cuffs
Both of these are part of the “Superhero Gift Set” and are in the hoop machine embroidery designs.

Skirt and T-shirt
Zoe already had a white t-shirt and red skirt so all I had to sew was a set for dolly as well.

We were all set…


Declan wanted to play along! So I embroidered a mask for him and his teddy bear!

Now we were all happy and ready to play!

  1. Hello,
    Thank you for sharing the Super Hero dress up theme. I love the embroidery aspect of the outfits. What kind of thread, polyester, rayon, silk, etc… have you found works best for your embroidery projects? I am sure it is somewhat of a personal preference but your embroidery looks stunning.
    Thank you,

    • Hi Bev

      I prefer to use Rayon as the thread does not stretch as much as polyester does and gives you a smoother embroidery surface. The advantage to polyester is that if you bleach it, it keeps it’s color better than rayon, but we have used marathon rayon for years now without any problems.
      You are right… it is personal preference. I say… find one you like and stick with it. There are so many lovely brands that are all top quality available to us.
