I used a fat quarter of cotton fabric. I cut the ruffle first at 3 inches (I had to piece it together to make it long enough- I like to use double the length of the piece I am attaching it to- in this case, the bottom edge of the Playtime Peasant Top. Then I found I didn’t have quite enough fabric left for the full sleeve pieces. I cut the bodice as normal, and then shortened the sleeves so they would fit. I used the rolled hem on my serger to hem both the sleeves (a great way to hem if you are short on fabric!) and the ruffle.

Print out all of your pieces to make the doll top, including the sleeve. Cut out your pieces, and tape your sleeve piece to a new sheet of paper (near the top) so the fold line is even with the left edge of your paper. Measure down the edge by 3 1/2 inches, and make a mark. Use your ruler to draw the new sleeve hem at a 90 degree angle from your fold line. You can then connect the new hem back up to your short sleeve edge. Cut out your new piece and label it for 18 inch dolls.

Follow the pattern as directed. You can put wrist elastic (4 inches) in or leave it out. You can also make longer sleeves on the tunic or dress length too! Depending on the fabric you choose, your dress can look modern or retro.

Long sleeve, baby doll blouse for your Julie or Courtney 18 inch doll with Oh Sew Kat! PDF patterns

The American Girl BeForever® characters are 9-10 years old in their books. I was seven years old in 1974 (so a little younger than Julie) and my youngest sister was six years old in 1986 (so a little younger than Courtney.) My sister and I BOTH had clothing made from this little rosebud fabric. My sister also had a dress in the same fabric that was pink. Such memories! What do you think? 70s? 80s? I think it works for both!

Make a Mix and Match 80s Style Wardrobe for your Courtney Moore™ American Girl® Doll

As an 80s gal myself, I am pretty excited about Courtney and all her fun things. Even though I was in college, I still loved the Care Bears (I also had a six year old sister at the time, LOL) and my mom and I tracked down some Cabbage Patch Kids. I didn’t hear about American Girl® until I had children of my own- I guess that is what happened in the times before the internet!

Sewing patterns to make doll clothes by Oh Sew Kat!

Before I even saw her collection, I started to look at 80s fashions and colors and came up with a few pieces to mix and match for her as soon as I brought her home.

Cabbage Patch Kids. American Girl Dolls. Care Bears. Strawberry Shortcake! Give your doll an 80s wardrobe to match with simple to sew Oh Sew Kat! PDF sewing patterns. Find us on Etsy too!

Courtney needs new 80s themed clothing!

I used 3 patterns and made 5 pieces for my Courtney’s new Mix and Match wardrobe. Because both tops are reversible, I get two shirts in one. I tried to pick fabrics that also coordinate with the tights, purple tank top, and jean skirt that she came dressed in (called her “Meet” outfit) so I would have even more wardrobe options.

I used the Picnic Play Top, Sandbox Shorts, and the Four Season Skirt. The Four Season Skirt pattern is a free gift when you subscribe to my email newsletter. You can find it HERE.

Sandbox Shorts Pattern Hack: Add 80s Flair

I’ve been scouring the internet and Pinterest looking for ideas to sew for 1980s BeForever™ character Courtney Moore™ from American Girl®. She’s the newest character to join the historical line up of dolls like Julie, Melody, Maryellen, Nanea, Molly, and more!

This PIN (Don’t forget to follow me and save my pins on Pinterest!) reminded me of the boxy summer outfits that were so popular in the 80s so I immediately set about creating the same or similar look for Courtney using Oh Sew Kat! patterns that I already had on hand. I first used the Picnic Play reversible top (adding square chest pockets on some of them); read all about it in THIS POST.

Next I needed to make wide shorts with big pockets. I used the Sandbox Shorts pattern, view C, which has a wider leg. Because the pattern has a flat front and elastic back, I couldn’t just add pockets to the sides without changing the whole pattern. My answer was to add the pockets, just before or just after sewing the leg hems. I used a 2.75 inch square, taking in .25 under each edge. Bam! Perfect 80s shorts! You can find both patterns in the Oh Sew Kat! pattern shop! (Note, you can also use the Jumping Jack 3 in 1 pattern if you have that one as well!)

To make the black suspender skirt, an iconic look for Miss Eloise, I used the overskirt pattern, found in the Everything Nice accessories pattern. You might want to make it more full than the pattern calls for, but this basic, open back gathered skirt has a nice waistband. My fabric was 29 inches long, so that is what I used. I also took off 1 inch from the hem. Instead of a regular gathered skirt (which will still look very cute!) I pleated my fabric every 3/8th inch or so (I did not measure) and it fit perfectly to my waistband. If you choose to do this, I recommend cutting your skirt piece longer than you need and trimming to fit just in case.

Make an Eloise inspired outfit for your 18 inch doll like American Girl with the easy PDF sewing pattern from Oh Sew Kat! Shop on etsy for a full selection of doll sewing patterns in five sizes, and visit ohsewkat.com to get a skirt pattern to try for FREE.

Once you attach the skirt to the waistband, try it on your doll and mark or pin the strap placement. Pin the straps in place inside the skirt (front and back, being careful not to let them twist). On the front, sew a few stitches to secure the straps right in the center of the waistband. On the back, consider hiding your stitches in the hook and loop tape area or the topstitching. Sew the buttons to the front of the waistband where the straps meet the skirt, covering the stitches that attached the straps. For this outfit, I used 9.5 inches of black Fold over elastic for my straps. If using fabric, cut two pieces, 11 x 1.25 inches, folding in each long edge to the center and stitching in place.

I chose a Playtime Peasant Top for my Eloise costume because all the photos of her seem to have a baggy, almost untucked look to the front of her shirt. Even though it doesn’t have a collar, it still created the look I was after. You could easily add a collar to the bodice of the Sugar n Spice dress and make it into a blouse. You could also use the school blouse pattern from the Pleasant Company Molly’s Pretty Clothes patterns. You can find those at a site called AG Playthings. White knee socks and black mary jane style shoes can be found at American Girl®. See this POST for more doll shoe sources.

Add a bright read headband with this easy TUTORIAL and she’s ready for tea at the Plaza! Find Eloise stories on Ad: Amazon. See more pattern hacks and ideas for the Sugar n Spice dress HERE and HERE.

Four Season Skirt Pattern Hack: Make a Bubble Skirt

Courtney Moore,™ the newest BeForever character from American Girl® is a true 80s girl. With hair scrunchies, boxy clothes and bubble skirts- you can create similar looks with PDF sewing patterns you may already have!

It’s pretty simple to make a basic bubble skirt for your doll. You can start with the free Four Season Skirt pattern from Oh Sew Kat!

Free sewing pattern for dolls- Get the Four Season Skirt PDF pattern for Free at ohsewkat.com.

You will want to choose a fabric that has some “drape”. That means it softly hangs. Stiff cottons and wovens might not be the best choice. The Four Season Skirt pattern doesn’t have pattern pieces since it’s just too basic rectangles. Cut your waistband as the pattern directs. For the skirt part, you will still have the same length (the long way that goes around the doll), but you will want to double the width of your rectangle (the short way- from the waist to the hem.)

Press your fabric well before you start. Fold your skirt piece in half the long way, with wrong sides together. Baste the raw edges together to hold them in place, and gather as the pattern directs. Do not press the folded edge (which is the hem).
