The Twinkle Twirl Skirt pattern is a simple pull on skirt with an elastic waistband. Make it with a four fabric skirt, or a fuller 9 pattern skirt.

Doll Skirt Sewing Pattern: The New Twinkle Twirl Skirt for 14-18 inch Dolls

Riley’s skirt, below, was made with quilting precuts! I used 10 inch layer cake squares to make the skirt, and a jelly roll strip for the ruffle. I purchased the cute striped bias tape, but you can easily make your own as well. A simple Popsicle Top (pattern also from Oh Sew Kat!) completes her outfit.

Step it Up Series: Backyard Bibs Bow Tied Romper

This idea was sent to me by one of my customers, Laura C. It’s really easy to switch out the sewn in straps on the Backyard Bibs pattern and replace them with pretty ribbons you can tie into bows. Once you tie them nicely, you can easily slip the outfit on and off without untying them each time. I used 1/4th inch ribbon for this adorable strawberry romper. Simply cut 4 pieces, 9-10 inches each, and stitch one into each part of the bodice (You will stitch one on each side of the front, and one on each back piece at the top, just as you would for connected straps.) Remember to keep them free as you complete your sewing!

Make an easy romper with tied straps for your 18 inch American Girl doll. The Backyard Bibs PDF Sewing Pattern from Oh Sew Kat is quick to sew and has four options- two pants and two skirts. Find out more in the OhSewKat etsy shop.

Another easy change to the Backyard Bibs pattern is to put elastic in the legs of the capris or the shorts. I used the capri length pattern piece (no cuff), and turned up the hem by 3/8th inch for the elastic casing. Four inches of elastic is perfect for this knee length romper. Maryellen is ready for a day outside in the Florida sunshine!

Make it Monday: Doll Scale Bandana Fabric

American girl doll blonde with bandana dress and cowboy hat

Doll scale bandana fabric can be hard to find. A few years back, my Walmart had some in just a few colors. I’ve not seen it in a long time, and wish I had purchased more, because it’s such a short cut to making western style doll outfits!! Above, Kelly’s blue outfit is actually two pieces- The free FOUR SEASON SKIRT and the Playtime Peasant Blouse. The cowboy hat and boots are made by American Girl® and are part of Nicki Fleming’s collection.

Reversible Doll Dresses with the Sunshine Dress PDF Pattern by OhSewKat

The Sunshine Dress is a great “go to” pattern for a basic dress, with or without sleeves. It has a loose fit so it’s great for dolls that may be older or different brands.

Make your doll a reversible Sunshine Dress for summer

When you make an item reversible, take the extra time to put the fabrics with wrong sides together and ensure that each one can’t be “seen” from the other side. I try to choose lighter prints for the insides of my dresses and I usually choose fabrics that have a few coordinating colors.

To make your Sunshine Dress reversible, start with THIS TUTORIAL to make the sleeveless version. You do not need the bodice lining pieces. I used the simple front for Joss’ dress, but you can use any of the options in the pattern. Complete the front first.

Make a reversible sundress for your 18 inch American Girl doll with the easy Sunshine Dress sewing pattern and Oh Sew Kat! pattern hacks. Find more doll clothes PDF sewing patterns in the OhSewKat etsy shop.

Use two fabrics and make two versions of the dress, one for the outside and one for the inside. Sew the shoulder seams and the neckline as stated in the pattern. Sew the armholes, and the hem. Turn the dress right side out, and press well.

You now need to complete the side seams. You will be sewing the lining and dress together, with right sides together. The front will be sewn to the front, and the lining will be sewn to the lining. (This is the same method I use in the Popsicle Top pattern). You will not be able to sew the entire seam. Try to get at least one inch of the lining, then over the seam, down the front, and then over the seam again to the lining by at least one more inch. Once you do that, you can pull the sides into place, and the gap should pretty much close up. You can handstitch the gap closed, or you can “stitch in the ditch” along the seam with your machine. Attach the hook and loop tape as usual.
