Easy fastening for doll clothes

I find that snaps and hooks & eyes are not always easy for tiny hands to open & close (or for my fat fingers to hold). I use little strips of Velcro to fasten doll clothes. Use a little glue to hold the Velcro in place and then sew down the sides after the glue is dry. I usually put at least 2 1" strips on a garment. Buttons can be sewn on the top side if desired.

Velcro is unsuitable as a fastener for pretty fabrics like satin or glitter knits, as it tears them to shreds. I always use snaps.
