This pattern hack will work for all sizes of the bibs. Simply change the measurements to fit your doll. To make your Backyard Bibs top, follow the instructions to make the bib cutting a large ruffle instead of the gathered skirt variation. Gather it and attach to your bibs as directed by the pattern. Wasn’t that easy?

Sew easy and cute overalls for Blaire Wilson and other 18 inch dolls like American Girl with Backyard Bibs PDF Sewing pattern by OHSEWKAT. #sewingpattern #overalls #dollclothes #ohsewkat

For both of these tops shown in my photos, I folded the ruffle in half (wrong sides together) instead of hemming it. If you want to hem it instead, you will have a thinner strip of fabric to start with. The measurements I used for the 18 inch Doll are:

  • For the short ruffle (Stars) use 3 x 30
  • For the longer ruffle (Floral & Leaves) use 5 x 24

If your doll won’t wear the Backyard Bibs top over a shirt or blouse, you may want to shorten the straps by 1/4th inch to give a bit more snug fit.

Make Ruffled Skirt Bibs for your Dolls by Combining 2 Sewing Patterns

Add a ruffled skirt to the easy Backyard Bibs PDF sewing pattern to make overalls for your 18 inch dolls by OH Sew Kat.

Have you seen the pattern value bundles section of my Etsy shop? I now offer bundles of patterns for more than one size in one listing, with more being added all the time. I also offer quite a few bundles of 2 to 4 patterns that go together…like for summer or school, as well as certain pairs of patterns that were designed as outfits. See the selection of bundles HERE.

Oh Sew Kat! Doll Clothes Sewing Pattern Bundles

Some of these pairs include my first two patterns published, The Sixth Grade Skirt and Popsicle Top available in different doll sizes. You can also find the Easy Up! Jumper paired with the Jumping Jack 3 in 1 set for the turtleneck. My newest bundle pair is the Backyard Bibs and Playtime Peasant Top and Twirl Skirt. This bundle gives you the top (which can be made into a dress), the 3 tiered prairie skirt, and four versions of the Backyard Bibs overalls.

Make your doll a set of Ruffled Backyard Bibs with this easy pattern hack.

Create this adorable ruffled bibs dress by combining the two patterns (shown above) in the Bibs and Blouse bundle. Follow the instructions as written to make the bibs, then instead of adding one of the skirt or pants variations, add the two bottom ruffles from the Playtime Twirl Skirt. Go even further by adding all three ruffles if you like! (Just realize that the top ruffle of the skirt goes into an elastic waistband, which the Bibs pattern does not have. You will need to make the top layer longer in order to be full enough for the larger bibs waistband.)
