No, it’s not too early for this! It’s really not. Do you know there are less than 80 days until Christmas? You need to get your sewing started now and I’ve got a few adorable outfits to inspire you! You may have seen these images on instagram or facebook, but they are just too cute not to be shared here as well!
Wouldn’t Luciana make an adorable Elf on the Shelf?
I was working up some holiday ideas, specifically an apron using the Boardwalk Boutique top as a base (details coming in November), and then it struck me. Why not just use the whole outfit? I immediately set to work and came up with these cuties!! No changes to the pattern- just add some belts, buttons, and ric rac and make some deliberate color choices. I also think a snowman version would be adorable too! They fit perfectly over the Jumping Jack Turtleneck Shirt or a short or long sleeve Playtime Peasant Top.
And who says the Gingerbread Boy has to be a boy? Find the very easy Boardwalk Boutique Halter Top and Capri pattern HERE in 4 popular doll sizes.
Pin these images for later and see more Holiday Outfits for your dolls HERE. I used ribbon ties for all of these outfits to keep them quick and easy. They take so little fabric (less than a fat quarter!) and are so fast, you could really stock up for your fall craft shows with these!
I tried the elf outfit with and without a ruffle tucked into the neckline. Depending on the shirt you layer with it, both look cute! Just be sure to attach the belt (I stitched black ribbon across the front and made a buckle with glitter HTV.) before you sew the side seams.
A little ric rac and some red and green buttons create an easy Gingerbread outfit. Add some fun striped socks and layer it over a Playtime Peasant Top for a complete outfit. (Red high tops are made by AG).
Have you started sewing for the holidays! Share what you make with me on Facebook and Instagram (hashtag #ohsewkat). Still soaking in the pumpkin spice? See this same pattern stitched up like a pumpkin HERE.
