Michelle Anderson added an adorable pocket to the front of this spiffy plaid jumper.  The pocket piece is not included with the pattern, but if you don’t have one from another pattern (like the HalterAlls for example), it’s very easy to make your own!

How to Make a Snowman Outfit for Dolls- Jumping Jack Sewing Pattern

Make your doll a cute outfit for her winter play with the Jumping Jack Sewing pattern by Oh Sew Kat!  A three piece, easy to sew outfit consists of a turtleneck shirt, flared shorts, and a reversible jumper that buttons to the shorts or is held on with an elastic belt or tie.  This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, I’ll receive a small compensation. This does not impact the price you pay and I would never promote products that I do not actually use in my own sewing.Doll clothes sewing patterns for 18 inch dolls ohsewkat

If you want to sew buttons on your jumper, be sure to add them before you sew the jumper together in order to keep it reversible.  You could also use iron on transfer material for the buttons or add a snowman face.  They are hard to see in this photo, but I used a special fabric glue and fine glitter to give Grace’s jumper a little extra sparkle! See the end of this post for the supplies.

Santa Outfit for Dolls: Jumping Jack Pattern Hack

Jumper santa outfit for dolls by Oh Sew Kat!

Make this cute Santa dress for your doll with the new Jumping Jack 3 in 1 Jumper Set pattern.

This is barely even a hack to the pattern.  The only change I made was I added white cuffs to the sleeves (and made the neckband white as well.) Be sure to subtract the cuff width (plus 1/4 inch seam allowance) from the sleeve length when you cut out your turtleneck shirt.  I also recommend sewing the buttons on before you sew your jumper together so you won’t ruin the reverse of your jumper.  These belts, made of fold over elastic, can also be used as headbands!

The best part is that it’s reversible! I put a red heart fabric on the back so it can go from the Christmas holiday right to Valentine’s Day.
