Use the Bloomer Buddies PDF sewing pattern to make a classic nightgown for your 1980’s Courtney Moore™ doll. I made my nightgown from soft, Care Bears® flannel fabric that I found at my local Joann’s store. When I went to college in 1986, I loved the Care Bears® too. My mom made me a nightgown just like this (but the background of the fabric was white.) The girls in the dorm did think I was a little weird. No worries, I’m sure I was. Ha ha!

I actually found this dress, half made, in a buried pile of things on my sewing table. I’ve been reorganizing and clearing out like crazy and uncovered quite a few “works in progress”. This one had the ric rac already on it, and all that was left was the side seams and the hem. I decided to add a ruffle to the hem- and snapped a few pics of Emily in it. Enjoy!!

Print out all of your pieces to make the doll top, including the sleeve. Cut out your pieces, and tape your sleeve piece to a new sheet of paper (near the top) so the fold line is even with the left edge of your paper. Measure down the edge by 3 1/2 inches, and make a mark. Use your ruler to draw the new sleeve hem at a 90 degree angle from your fold line. You can then connect the new hem back up to your short sleeve edge. Cut out your new piece and label it for 18 inch dolls.

Follow the pattern as directed. You can put wrist elastic (4 inches) in or leave it out. You can also make longer sleeves on the tunic or dress length too! Depending on the fabric you choose, your dress can look modern or retro.

See more ideas for the Bloomer Buddies pattern HERE, HERE and in the Inspiration Gallery HERE.

Long sleeve, baby doll blouse for your Julie or Courtney 18 inch doll with Oh Sew Kat! PDF patterns

The American Girl BeForever® characters are 9-10 years old in their books. I was seven years old in 1974 (so a little younger than Julie) and my youngest sister was six years old in 1986 (so a little younger than Courtney.) My sister and I BOTH had clothing made from this little rosebud fabric. My sister also had a dress in the same fabric that was pink. Such memories! What do you think? 70s? 80s? I think it works for both!

DIY Doll Clothes for 16 inch Animators’ Dolls by Oh Sew Kat!

Make your own DIY doll clothes for 16 inch Disney Princess Animators' doll with easy to sew PDF sewing patterns from OhSewKat.

Oh Sew Kat! currently offers 24 patterns and bundles for the 16 inch Animators’ dolls produced by Disney®. Disney® keeps us on our toes, as all the animators are not the exact same size…and the new toddler and my first princess doll lines have the same wide eyes that were once tell tale signs of the Animators’ line. Some of my patterns do fit the smaller toddler dolls- I’ve had success with the 14.5 inch size patterns for the one doll I’ve tried.

These Animators’ patterns are all designed for the 16 inch dolls, sold in Disney stores and Disney’s online store, with an average cost of $25 each. My sweet Rapunzel recently had a haircut. Her long locks are true to character, but were just always in the way as I’m dressing and undressing and taking photos. I think the new style suits her!!

Find the full selection of Oh Sew Kat! animators’ patterns HERE.

Fashion Feature: Add Pockets to Your Doll Clothes

There are so many ways to change up your sewing patterns to create your own unique doll clothes. One of my favorite fashion features is to add a pocket (or two) to a simple garment. Some of my patterns include pattern pieces to add a pocket (HalterAlls for example) but any square or circle scrap of fabric can work too.

I found these cute, doll scale plaid flannel fat quarter packs at Walmart. I like to cut the plaid or checked yoke on the bias (diagonal) to give the interest and contrast. I used my piping foot to attach baby sized piping as I attached the yoke. The splash of color is a perfect accent. For Luciana’s pjs I also lengthened the sleeves to 3/4 length, left the wrist elastic off, and added a few inches to the capri length bloomers to make jammie pants. (You need to taper the ankles a bit!) Luciana is ready for a slumber party in her Bloomer Buddies pj’s!
