Blaire Wilson – Girl of the Year – Bee Skirt and Top Outfit

Blaire Wilson is the newest doll made by American Girl®.  She is the 2019 Girl of the Year doll- which usually means she and her collection are only available in 2019.  The GOTY creates a fun buzz in the doll community as her collection is unveiled.  Blaire’s a NY girl- living on a farm to table Bed and Breakfast.

Make a bee skirt for Blaire with the Four Season Skirt free sewing pattern.

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.

The Jumping Jack 3 in 1 jumper set includes the pattern for a universal, knit turtleneck shirt. This go to staple fits any doll’s wardrobe, and can be worn with all kinds of outfits from jeans to skirts.  I found this adorable bee fabric at Hobby Lobby, and used the Four Season Skirt pattern (find it FREE HERE) for a quick project!

The Four Season Skirt is a great beginner project, especially for girls that want to learn to sew. It doesn’t use pattern pieces- just measure out two rectangles of fabric and some 1/4th inch elastic and off you go! Blaire is much happier in a warm shirt and boots!  See more about Blaire HERE, and find lots of ideas for her wardrobe in the Inspiration Gallery.

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.  Find bee themed charms online here: AD:  https://amzn.to/2CUZVsg and the keychains here: https://amzn.to/2VyJSaO.

Pumpkin Doll Jumper: Boardwalk Boutique for Fall!

It’s October!!  Who else is ready for a little fall?  How cute is this jumper?  I’m calling it Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice!

Fun doll clothes for fall- make a happy pumpkin jumper

I made this jumper for my 18 inch doll from the very popular summertime pattern, the Boardwalk Boutique.  Yep! It’s this one pictured below, and chances are, you may already have it in your collection.  It was one of the first Oh Sew Kat! patterns I published.  Find it in 4 different doll sizes HERE.  I didn’t make any changes to the pattern. I cut the longer top cutting line, and added the ruffle as usual. The jumper will be a little short if you tie the ties too tightly. I just pulled it down a bit and put it on over a few different shirts.

The black checked blouse, and the white top below, were both made using the Playtime Peasant Top and Twirl Skirt pattern. You can read more about it HERE.  It’s available sized for 5 different dolls in my Etsy Shop.

For the pumpkin face, I used black, glitter heat transfer vinyl (HTV, like this AD:https://amzn.to/2DHrOGx).  I cut only the face from a design in the AD: Cricut Library; it was part of my access subscription.   A quick press and this adorable jumper was done!
