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.

Easy DIY for Dolls: Sparkly, Pink Snowflake Tee Shirt Tutorial

When my daughter was younger and her holiday gift list was long with dolls, outfits and accessories from the American Girl® store, our budget was not quite as big as she might have liked. Even back then, I knew a few crafting skills and tools would let me spend my budget on dolls and furniture, and I could save more than a few dollars by creating my own outfits for the dolls. Sometimes I did historical fashions- sometimes I matched my daughter’s own clothing, and sometimes I just did a DIY of my own version of something in the shop.

Make a Pink, Sparkly Snowflake Tee Shirt for

your 18 Inch Doll

The easiest way to create your own snowflake tee shirt is to purchase shirts that are already made. I found some short sleeve ones on Amazon. (I like to keep a bunch of solid tees on hand in a variety of colors, but didn’t have a long sleeve pink one today.) You can also make your own! I did one of each!

To make your own long sleeved tee shirt there are two options with Oh Sew Kat! patterns. Use the Simple Sweet Tee pattern and simply add some length to make the sleeves longer (with this pattern, you can also use sparkly fold over elastic at the neck and wrists for even more shine!), or use the turtleneck shirt pattern found in the Jumping Jack 3 in 1 bundle. Find both patterns HERE.

I make my graphic tee shirts with my Cricut® machine. I actually own three of them- the Cricut Maker, the Cricut Explore Air, and the Cricut Joy. You can use any one of the machines, or any other electronic cutter that you like. You can even use scissors!! Here is what you will need to decorate your own tee shirts:

  • Heat Transfer Vinyl (found in most craft and big box stores, or order from Cricut HERE. I am using Cricut Smart Iron On made specifically for the Cricut Joy machine, which allows me to cut without using a mat, which is great for small projects like doll tees. I used glossy holographic HTV for my tees.
  • Electronic Cutter (I am using the cute Cricut JOY. It’s perfect for doll size projects, Learn more HERE.)
  • Weeding Tools – Your seam ripper also works great for this!
  • Heat Press or Iron (I’m using the Cricut Mini heat press which is also perfect scale for doll projects. A regular iron will work just as well but if you find yourself doing a lot of HTV projects, you may want to invest in a press that runs a little hotter and is easier to set to a specific temp and time. Cricut makes 4 sizes! Find them at Cricut and Amazon.

Snow Cute Outfit Part 1: Pink Snowflake Tee Shirt

Tee Shirt Prep

  • If you are using a tee shirt you purchased or have already made, skip to the next step.
  • If you are making your own tee shirt, cut out all of your fabric pieces according to the pattern directions. I used the Jumping Jack 3 in 1 turtleneck (but made it with a lower neckband) or you can use the Simple Sweet Tee and lengthen the sleeves. You will want to add your snowflakes before you sew your shirt together. This means you can also decorate the sleeves if you like! (I decided to do this at the last minute. I used another doll shirt for a placement guide as I didn’t want the snowflakes going down the back of the doll’s arm where it would not be seen. Your design will be more to one side than down the center of the sleeve in this case.)

Create Your Snowflake Graphic and Cut it Out

  • I’m using Design Space from Cricut. If you are using a different software, refer to that site for instructions to create and cut a design. (You tube is also a great resource!)
  • Open Design Space and search for Snowflakes in the Design Space Catalog. For a small fee (less than $10 a month) you can have access to thousands of designs whenever you need them. It’s called Cricut Access and is well worth the investment if you do a lot of crafting projects. Read more about it HERE.). Choose a few designs you like and add them to your canvas/page. Because dolls have small shirts, keep designs simple. You can see the few I selected in photo 2. You can also choose two color designs and use hologram, gold, silver, white etc in lots of fun different ways.
  • Select your design and resize it to fit on the front of your doll’s tee shirt. I usually size it to around 2-3 inches for 18 inch dolls. Play with the angles and arrange them. Once you are happy with how it is arranged, draw a marquis (drag a square) around the design, and click ATTACH so the snowflakes will stay arranged exactly how you placed them. Kat’s Tip: Draw (add a cut line) a square/rectangle around your completed design and attach it when you are ready to cut. This will also cut lines around your design to help with weeding and to preserve your materials for the next project. (Photo 2)
  • Follow the screen prompts to cut your HTV. (Photo 1) Remember to place the shiny side down! If you have words or a one way design, don’t forget to hit mirror as you are cutting it backwards. I am using Cricut holographic Iron On vinyl. The front side is a silver rainbow, and the back is pink. Your material may look different. Save your scraps! Doll projects are great HTV scrap busting projects.

DIY Pink Snowflake Tee Shirt Tutorial for 18 inch Dolls

Create your own modern fashion doll clothes for your 18 inch dolls like American Girl with easy to sew PDF print at home sewing patterns from Oh Sew Kat! Make your own version of the pink snowflake shirt and silver sparkle skirt with your cricut and sewing machine.

Press your Snowflakes onto the Tee Shirt

  • Once your design is cut out, use your weeding tool to remove all the negative space, so the only material left on the clear carrier sheet is what you actually want to show up on your tee shirt. (Photo 2) You can see from the photo above, that the square I cut around my design made it very easy to weed and to cut away from my unused material. I cut the design two times at once because, well, why make one when you can make two in the same amount of time?
  • Heat up your Heat Press or your Iron and following the heating guide for the material you are using, press the snowflake design to your tee shirt. I like to press mine on a press mat for the best results. I saved the link to the Cricut Heat Press Guide to the home screen of my phone for easy access. (Photo 3)
  • Tip: Crease the center front to show you where the center line of the tee is to help center your design.
  • Place your design (wrong/sticky side down). Press it in place, following the appropriate heat press guide.
  • Once the shirt front cools, you can assemble the shirt as directed if you are not using a premade shirt. (Photo 4)

The holographic HTV is stunning!! It even comes in different “shades of color”- I think this is the pink one. Fun!! These pictures do not do it justice. But add a little more sparkle if you like with crystals from the craft store. My favorite brand are Swarovski like this assortment on Amazon. The best part about making your own version of this pretty pink shirt, is you can easily make the design a little bigger- and make one for your girl to match!

Decorate your doll clothes with easy to cut pockets, appliques, or accessorize with purses and belts.

Included with the Design Space program are a lot of basic shapes that you can manipulate and cut for free. You can also weld shapes together or slice them apart. Save your files to use them again later. The sparkly pumpkin face on Kelly’s Boardwalk Boutique dress was part of a full pumpkin image. I simply told the cricut to only cut the face using the contour feature in Design Space. You can weld a square and a triangle together to make a pocket. I made the belt and buckle for the holiday apron with two rectangles, and did the same in these Santa and Elf outfits HERE. Iron on is much quick than embroidery!! The new cricut Maker cuts leather very nicely, which opens the door to fun accessories like purses and belts. See my HTV TUTORIAL HERE.

Directions for Playtime Peasant Top Nightgown with Ruffle (All Sizes)

  • Cut 2 long sleeves according to the pattern.
  • To give your gown more of a flair at the bottom, print a second bodice pattern piece. Fold it in half and tape it to the top, left corner of a new piece of paper.
  • Trace the armhole and extend that side edge nearly to the bottom of the page.
  • Measure your bodice addition (see below for exact measurement for your size doll) inches below the bottom hem of the pattern piece. Draw a new line, intersecting the side line and continuing on beyond it.
  • Measure your width addition (see below for exact measurement for your size doll) from the side line, and make a dot. Connect the dot to the armhole as your new side edge. Cut out your new pattern piece and remove the original bodice piece. Mark the long edge as the center fold. Label your new piece and keep it for next time. Cut 2 of these new pieces, on the fold of fabric, one for the front and one for the back.
  • Cut ruffle to measurements as desired, or listed below.
  • For Ruffle: Zig zag or serge one long edge, press up 1/4th inch and hem. Gather the top (raw) long edge.
  • Assemble the pattern per the instructions, adding the ruffle in place of a hem in Step 11. Optional: Topstitch the ruffle after attaching it.

You really can’t go wrong with how long you make your gown or your ruffle. Below you will find my “starting point” for each size doll. Feel free to experiment and have fun with your own Playtime Peasant Top Nightgown!
