Doll scale bandana fabric can be hard to find. A few years back, my Walmart had some in just a few colors. I’ve not seen it in a long time, and wish I had purchased more, because it’s such a short cut to making western style doll outfits!! Above, Kelly’s blue outfit is actually two pieces- The free FOUR SEASON SKIRT and the Playtime Peasant Blouse. The cowboy hat and boots are made by American Girl® and are part of Nicki Fleming’s collection.
Use THIS TUTORIAL to make a cute Playtime Peasant Top Dress. In this red bandana fabric, it takes on a western vibe especially when you add the boots! I also added a sparkly elastic belt using this tutorial.
Grace’s pink outfits is one of my favorites. It is also made with the free PDF pattern, the FOUR SEASON SKIRT and the the Playtime Peasant Top. I added the lace to the skirt and you can find the tutorial HERE.
I made this set of Wellie Wishers™ outfits as a gift for a little girl, and I wanted all of the pieces to mix and match however she might choose. By choosing a focus fabric, and then using the same pink striped fabric in different ways on each piece, I easily created a unified collection of Wellie Wishers clothing by adding a few solid colors here and there.

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.

When you purchase your 18 inch dolls, they come fully dressed in what is called their “meet” outfit. Blaire’s meet outfit is a cheery white sundress covered in bumblebees and purple sandals. Our January weather is a little chilly, so I got to work to create an outfit she might find a little more comfortable.

Here is a closer view of her daisy necklace. The local craft stores have wonderful selections of charms and beads in their jewelry and scrapbooking sections, at a very low price point. These little ball chains were already precut (key chains?), but you can easily cut your own from a roll, so I just put the daisy on it and completed Blaire’s outfit.
