  • Cut your two ruffles twice as long as the hem of the sleeve by 2 1/2 inches wide
  • Press each ruffle the long way with wrong sides together
  • Gather the raw edges of each ruffle and pin it to the right side of the sleeve hem
  • Complete your top according to the pattern directions

You can also make it into a dress like Grace’s festive outfit below. She is also wearing Luciana’s red belt purse to complete her outfit. To make this dress, I extended the bodice piece by 2 inches to make it dress length and then added the ruffles instead of hemming the sleeves. These green ruffles are a little wider than the ones above, so the sleeves go down to her wrists. Add a belt if you like to complete the look; Grace is using Luciana’s belt purse from American Girl®.

Step it Up Series: Tank Top Tee Shirt Pattern Hack

Joss Kendrick™, the 18″ doll of the year for 2020 from American Girl® is a surfer girl and a cheerleader. She has a pair of pajamas that are simply a pair of pants with a tank top. Use this tutorial to take the Simple Sweet Tee shirt pattern by Oh Sew Kat! and with a few adjustments, make your Joss doll some cute tank tops for bed, or cheer practice, or just to play on the beach!

Make a tank top for Joss American Girl doll with this easy pattern hack by Oh SEw Kat!  Easy to sew patterns on Etsy!

Make a cute tank top for your 18 inch doll with the Simple Sweet Tee Shirt pattern from Oh Sew Kat!

Method 1: Simple Tank Top

Make a tank top for Joss American Girl doll with this easy pattern hack by Oh SEw Kat!  Easy to sew patterns on Etsy!
Sewing Pattern 18 inch doll Tee Shirt by OHSEWKAT
  • Supplies Needed: Simple Sweet Tee pattern, ruler, knit fabric, fold over elastic (8.5 inches). Print out the Simple Tee Shirt pattern pieces- front and back. Do not cut them out. Always check the one inch box to make sure you printed correctly, even if you have used the pattern before.
  • Measure up 1/2 inch from CF and make a dot. Measure up the neckline seam line (dotted line) two inches, and make another dot. Connect these two dots with a tiny amount of curve. From the second dot, make a straight line down to the armsye corner. Cut out your new pattern piece.
  • Flip the front pattern piece over onto the back and trace the new armseye, extending the top edge (CB) up one half inch.
  • Cut out the two pieces from your fabric, with the front on the fold as before.
Make a tank top for Joss American Girl doll with this easy pattern hack by Oh SEw Kat!  Easy to sew patterns on Etsy!

  • Fold each armseye in 1/4th inch and stitch in place. This fabric is a pair of girls’ leggings I bought new at Kohl’s. It’s got a lot of stretch to it so I used wonder tape and my walking foot to make the sewing easier.
  • With RST together, stitch the side seams.
  • Cut 8 inches of 1/2 inch fold over elastic. This will form the neckband, connecting the sides in the process. Find the center of your elastic and pin it to the right side of the center of the shirt. (Follow the instructions in the Simple Tee pattern for the elastic- start with wrong sides together, then flip to right side and topstitch.) . Leave a gap of 3/4 inch between front and backs for the shoulders.
Make a tank top for Joss American Girl doll with this easy pattern hack by Oh SEw Kat!  Easy to sew patterns on Etsy!
  • Fold the elastic to the outside and top stitch in place. The ends of the elastic will hang off either end by about 1/2 inch. Steam the elastic if it stretched out when you sewed it.
  • Finish the back seams, trimming off excess elastic.
  • Fold up hem by 1/4th inch and stitch in place.
  • Try the top on your doll and attach the hook and loop tape to both back edges as directed by the pattern.

Method 2: Contrasting Trim

Make a tank top for Joss American Girl doll with this easy pattern hack by Oh SEw Kat! Easy to sew patterns on Etsy!

Another variation would be to sew the side seams first, and then either fold the armseyes in as one long seam, or even add fold over elastic to each side of the armseyes for more contrast. Then add the neck elastic to cover the edges. You will need about 6 1/2 inches per side of FOE plus 8 inches for the neck.

Make a tank top for Joss American Girl doll with this easy pattern hack by Oh SEw Kat!  Easy to sew patterns on Etsy!
  • If you plan to use this method, add a little bit of a curve to the under arm portion of your pattern, so you won’t have such a severe “V” to add the elastic to. Cut 1/4 inch off the center front and the center back lines. (If you fail to do this, the top will be too wide. (Ask me how I know… you can cut the center line and add a seam to make it the right size, like I did. I then covered it with ricrac to hide the seam before adding the neckline elastic.)
  • Sew side seams and press open
  • Cut Fold Over Elastic to two 6 1/2 inch pieces. Following the method in the Simple Tee pattern, attach the wrong side of the elastic to the wrong side of your top, fold it over along the fold line, and topstitch from the right side.
  • Add the neckband in the same manner, with 8 inches of Fold Over Elastic. Start pinning at the middle of the top with the middle of the elastic and butt the FOE edges right next to each other, without a gap. Stitch as above and trim off any extra at the edges.
  • Finish the back edges and add hook and loop tape according to the pattern directions. Press up 1/4th inch at the hem and stitch.

Make a Cheer Bow for your 18 inch Joss™ Doll

Make a quick and easy cheer bow for your 18 inch doll like Joss Kendrick with this cricut tutorial from OhSewKat! Make it with felt, leather or vinyl and pair it with DIY doll clothes made from Oh Sew Kat! etsy shop PDF digital sewing patterns for dolls.

Joss Kendrick™ is the American Girl® Girl of the Year for 2020. She’s a ten year old girl living in Huntington Beach, California. She loves to surf with her friend and surf sister, Sophia, and her brothers. In her story, she tries out something new- cheerleading. She finds that she can be both a cheerleader and a surfer in the process. Her cheer bow is an important part of her story. Here is a quick tutorial to make a felt cheer bow for your Joss doll or any of here friends. I used my cricut machine but you can cut the pieces by hand as well.

Find a full selection of easy PDF sewing patterns for 18 inch dolls and other sizes in my Etsy Shop to make your own surf outfits and cheer uniforms too!

Easy Cheer bows for dolls using Cricut designs

Supplies: (due to the use of hot glue, young children should be supervised to make this project.)

1. Choose your bow design. You can use any image or design that will produce a 3D bow. In Cricut Access, choose a bow design that makes a 3D bow. You can also find an svg file on etsy or even google. You will know it is a 3d bow because it will import as pieces that might not look like a bow yet. I used the “short bow topper” without the band for the loops (duplicate the loop layer and make one smaller than the other so you have two), and the “cute little bow” as my base layer.

2. Cut your design from felt. I like felt because it’s inexpensive and easy to work with. Be sure to try leather or sparkly faux leather. You can use one color or many. Keep all of your pieces together and size them to your preference. (My cheer bow is about 3 1/2 inches across the base layer.)

3. Heat up your glue gun, and place glue in the center of the larger loop layer. Glue both ends to the center, holding it down until the glue cools with a tool or the hair clip.

4. Do the same for the smaller loop layer.

5. When the layers are completely cool, stack them on top of each other with more glue.

6. If you are layering your bow on a solid base with tails, like I did, glue the center band to the center of your bow, and wrap it around the back, securing the edges.

7. Glue the entire bow to the base with tails. When it cools, glue your clip to the back side. Add little sparkles or sequins for decoration with more glue if you want.

8. Put Joss’ hair in a high ponytail and make sure her cheer bow stands up tall so she can fly high! (Be sure the hot glue cools completely before you put it in your doll’s hair.)

Make a quick and easy cheer bow for your 18 inch doll like Joss Kendrick with this cricut tutorial from OhSewKat! Make it with felt, leather or vinyl and pair it with DIY doll clothes made from Oh Sew Kat! etsy shop PDF digital sewing patterns for dolls.

There are many bow designs to choose from. It’s easy to make them bigger, smaller, with tails or without. Alternate colors and try different materials. If you make a smaller bow without the tails, you will wrap the center piece around all the layers, including the base layer and the clip and secure it with hot glue.

Sugar n Spice and it’s Valentine Nice! When you make the Sugar n Spice dress it’s a great idea to start with solid colors for the underdress. Each season, adding a pinafore, overskirt, or corset lets you change the look with much less to sew and to store. See the Easter version HERE. I used the same concept below for Riley’s bear skirt, but used a ribbon instead of a fabric waistband. See more photos HERE.
