The Twinkle Twirl Skirt from Oh Sew Kat! patterns is a quick skirt to make and comes with five sizes included!! Make one of three versions for your 18 inch doll like American Girl®, 16 inch dolls like A Girl for All Time® or Animators, 15 inch baby dolls and 14.5 inch dolls like Welliewishers™. Enjoy these beautiful skirts made by the Oh Sew Kat! testers!
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. Add contrasting bias trim for the hem for even more style. You can add a ruffle to the outside of the skirt near the hem, or sew it into the waistband, or BOTH!
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.
Joss is wearing her Twinkle Twirl skirt with a Picnic Play lace top. The top is simple and reversible and gives a different vibe each time you change the fabric. Here I sewed lace and cotton as one layer. The Twinkle Twirl Skirt uses 4 skirt panels with a cute, contrasting ruffle on top!
The Sugar n Spice PDF pattern for Animators dolls by Oh Sew Kat! includes a short sleeved dress with a full gathered skirt. It can also be made without sleeves and worn over the base dress as a pinafore. A quick little apron tutorial is included as well.
With the Sugar n Spice PDF pattern, your doll can be anyone she wants to be.
I like to make my base dresses in solid colors, leaving the overskirts, aprons, pinafores, corsets for the busier fabrics as they are quicker to make and take less fabric. The solid dresses also provide mix and match options for different characters and costumes as you can see here and here.

Create character costume doll clothes with the Sugar n Spice sewing pattern.
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!!

Make a quick spring skirt with this FREE SKIRT pattern for Dolls
Spring has sprung!! With flowers and showers, the entire world seems to wake up overnight when Spring arrives. Maryellen can’t wait to remove her saddle shoes and put her bare feet in the grass. Her cute whale skirt is paired with a reversible Popsicle Top and the skirt waistband matches the top. This skirt was actually one of the prototypes I used when I created the Four Season Skirt pattern, which you can get for free HERE. This skirt is a little shorter in both the waistband and the skirt, which gave it a fuller flare for spring!! Check out Grace in her pink Easter egg skirt here. See more Four Season Skirts here and here.

The Spring Shine Dress Sewing Pattern for Animators also makes an adorable top!
Pair the Spring Shine Top with a pair of ruffled capri pants using the Boardwalk Boutique pattern, also from Oh Sew Kat! See more ideas for the halter top and capri pattern here and here…it’s available sized for 5 different dolls from 14-18 inches tall. Michele used a contrasting fabric inside her sleeves and added fun bows down the front of the placket.
For this amazing outfit, Michele used both the Spring Shine skirt and top measurements, and layered them together for a double layer skirt. You can also make the longer skirt as a stand alone piece for even more mix and match options.
Anna’s double layer skirt has a layer of tulle as well. Love her spider hair pieces!! These are some lucky little princess dolls, aren’t they? The Spring Shine Dress or Top is a fairly quick sewing project, so you’ll have time (and fabric!) to make one for every princess doll in your house.
