More about Nicki Fleming- the 2007 Girl of the Year
Nicki Fleming, was the Girl of the Year™ released by American Girl® in 2007. She was born in 1997 and lives near Denver, Colorado. She has a brother, Adam, and two sisters, Rebecca and Cristine. Her biggest loves are animals and helping others. Above, she’s dressed in a snowman jumper made with the Backyard Bibs PDF pattern by Oh Sew Kat!
Nicki’s fashions from American Girl® are casual with a western flair. She loves to take walks and to go skiing! Her horse is named Jackson, and it is a lot of work to care for him, but she loves it. Her wardrobe includes a cowboy styled hat, boots, and riding chaps.
Nicki has curly, carmel colored hair, watery blue eyes, and a splash of freckles across her face. She’s a beauiful doll and her story will pull you in to her world of helping animals and training service dogs, like Sprocket™. Nicki’s jumper (below) is made of a soft batik fabric that looks almost like a denim! I used the Easy Up Jumper and the Jumping Jack Turtleneck (bundle available here!) for her outfit. See more ideas for this pattern HERE.
Nicki joined the Oh Sew Kat! modeling group in 2018. I bought her from American Girl in 2007, the year she came out. My daughter, was five at the time. She had a doll, but not an American Girl doll. Nicki was the first doll to have freckles, light blue eyes, and a tint of red hair just like my daughter. The next year, however, I took Molly to American Girl Place in New York City to select her first doll- and she chose Mia. Mia looks a lot like Nicki, so I just kept Nicki hidden. For YEARS!!! LOL. One day, I pulled her out of the closet, to maybe sell her, and just fell in love with her innocent look. She has since earned her keep as the perfect Oh Sew Kat! model. 🙂
You can read more about Nicki in her story: Ad: https://amzn.to/3cEP0VZ. You can still sometimes find them on Amazon and at American Girl, or your local library.
Nicki’s red bandana outfit (below) was made with the Playtime Peasant Top PDF pattern. Find the instructions HERE.

Use fun holiday fabrics to make your own “one of a kind” doll clothes
Your dress can look completely different just by changing the shirt color you pair it with. (Both the red and black shirts were made using the Jumping Jack pattern.) The red gives it a more “Christmas” feel where the black could be worn into January a well. Instead of tights, try fun, striped socks and boots. I found this striped bias tape in a sewing catalog- they offer it in a few colors and patterns. It’s such a fun accent for waistbands, hems and straps in the perfect scale for dolls.

Although this Easy Up! Jumper is not the exact same fabric as the one above, it is a coordinating print and gives the same effect. Teeny tiny snow globes! I purchase most of my fabric at AD: Fat Quarter Shop. This jumper would also look stunning over the black turtleneck shirt as well. Find the Easy Up! Jumper pattern here.

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.
My Oh Sew Kat! Testers love pockets too!! Michele is my pocket QUEEN! Pam, Sophie, and Shirley also add stunning accents to outfits with their pockets. Be inspired to try a few pockets on your next outfits.
The Easy Up! Jumper is quick to sew and makes a no closure jumper that pulls up over your doll’s feet. The technique is easy to follow, but sometimes you may prefer a dress that has a back closure for simple dressing. It’s simple to make the Easy Up! Jumper with a back closure instead. Start with the Easy Up! pattern for 18 inch or 14.5 inch Dolls. Find it in my Etsy Shop HERE.
Use this hack to make a summer beach jumper like Joss’s coral dress.
Easy Up! Jumper Pattern Hack for Dolls- Give it a back closure.
Cut out 1 front and 1 front lining according to the pattern directions.
Cut out your two back pieces, adding 1/2 inch to the edge marked FOLD on the pattern piece. Do not put it on a fold. (You can also print a second copy of your pattern, and add the 1/2 inch to your piece and cut it out that way.). Do the same for the back lining.
You now have 1 front, 1 front lining, 2 backs, and 2 back linings.
Because the jumper does not have to go on over the feet, you can opt to leave out the elastic straps if you like. I just folded mine and sewed them closed, using a 4 inch strap for 18 inch dolls and a 2.5 inch strap for the 14.5 inch dolls. (If making the elastic straps, follow the pattern).
Follow the pattern instructions to add lining, pleat triangles, and straps.
Kat’s Tip: Use a small safety pin to pin the back edges together while you attach the back straps. This will make it easier to ensure you get the jumper straps sewn in the right places, as it will now more closely look like the pattern instructions.
Press up your hem but do not sew it.
Serge or zig zag stitch your back edges, being sure to catch the lining. Fold in 1/2 inch and press (or turn under 1/4th, then 1/4th again). Add hook and loop tape.
Stitch your hem.

The great thing is this jumper works over a tee shirt for spring or summer too! See more ideas for the Jumping Jack pattern HERE.
