Anyone Gnome? Free Pattern: Make a St Patrick’s Day Doll Skirt

Free Skirt Pattern for 18 inch Dolls like American Girl® from Oh Sew Kat!

I could not resist this fun leperchaun/ gnome fabric when I was out fabric shopping one day. The print is a little large (and okay, a little obnoxious) for doll clothes, but the Four Season Skirt is the perfect choice for these fun, novelty prints. Pair the skirt with striped socks or tights, leggings, and high tops for a fun and funky holiday outfit.

Poppy is wearing her fun skirt with the Jumping Jack turtleneck shirt, white leggings, and fun orange high tops. You can also add the World Traveller Irish green sweater. Read my review of the Ireland outfit from American Girl® here. Need help making doll necklaces? See THIS POST.

Jenna’s green top is a modified Playtime Peasant Top. It’s very easy to alter the Playtime Peasant Top pattern to be a midriff style top. I cut the hem off by about two inches, hemmed the bottom at 3/8th inch to make a casing, and added 10 inches of 1/4th inch elastic so it sits right at her waist. The top still pulls on over her feet. Find the pattern HERE.

The Sugar n Spice and Everything Nice pattern includes a simple dress and pinafore/jumper. The pinafore makes a great stand alone dress as well. Here I kept it short, but it’s fun to make longer versions like in THIS POST. Layer the pinafore over a turtleneck, like the one included in the Jumping Jack pattern, or a tee or peasant top. Add some fun tights (these pink and red ones were actually from a Bitty Baby set by American Girl® called Sweetheart Outfit) and some cozy boots to complete the look.

Bow Tie Skirt for 18 inch Dolls

Follow these simple instructions to modify the Everything Nice Overskirt (Included with the Sugar n Spice and Everything Nice Pattern bundle) to close it with a pretty bow at the waist.

Make the Sugar n Spice Overskirt Close with a Pretty Tie

Easy sewing pattern for 18 inch dolls- dress, pinafore, cape, corset, tutu, apron, and overskirt. Mix and match to make Halloween costumes and 18 inch doll dresses.

You will need the Sugar n Spice and Everything Nice bundle pattern. The overskirt is part of the accessories set.

  1. Cut your skirt and waistband pieces according to the pattern instructions. I actually made my skirt more full at 33 inches.
  2. Hem and gather the skirt, including the short edges.
  3. Fold in each short end of the waistband 1/4th inch and press, then stitch.
  4. With right sides together, press waistband in half long ways.
  5. Open the waistband, and find the center. Also find the center of your 36 inch piece of ribbon.
  6. Decide if you want the skirt to close in the center or off to one side and place your ribbon in the waistband accordingly. Optional: Stitch some or all of the ribbon near the fold, to the back of the waistband piece so the ribbon will not come out during play. If you want to be able to tie it both in the center and to the side, you will need to leave the ribbon unattached so it can slide. In that case, put the ribbon inside, and use clips or pins to hold it in place and out of the way as you attach your waistband.
  7. Press the waistband closed again and complete the skirt as directed. The ribbon will be hidden in the waistband but the skirt will close with a cute bow.
  8. Use the skirt on its own, or over a dress frontwards or backwards.
