Cat, nope, not anyone could do what you do. I don’t think I could I ever make 3 dimensional beaded outfits. It’s why I quilt and don’t sew. I’d love to have the skills to make my own clothes. I’ve tried on a number of occasions, and it just doesn’t happen. The 3D aspect is the part my brain doesn’t care to do.
I can't sew at all, Michelle, and these outfits are beaded onto the dolls because I know I wouldn't want to take them off, anyway. I have never been one of those with many outfits to swap them all the time unless I could complete an outfit. If I had to add little zippers or snaps, it may not be so easy, I honestly don't know although I think a skirt may be easier with a snap.
There has also been a lot of trial and error
I never wished I could sew, I don't even know how to use a sewing machine for the simplest tasks, but now that I found what I think is the perfect cut for tops for me, I wish I could make those. Not going to happen, though.
