All those cute holiday fabrics in the stores and online are just so hard to resist! Every year I love to sew up a few new doll outfits with the latest prints and colors. Here are some of my favorites. Find all of these PDF sewing patterns in my ETSY SHOP.
Make your doll a holiday outfit with the Backyard Bibs PDF Sewing Pattern
The Backyard Bibs PDF sewing pattern is a very easy sewing project. Even a very inexperienced seamstress will find the process easy to follow with awesome results. Pull out your awesome holiday fabrics and make your doll a Backyard Bibs skirt or capri outfit today!
Grace’s poinsettia bibs (above) bring a fun PINK color to the holiday season. I used it with the Playtime Peasant top pattern- you can find the 2 bundle value here. Perfect for warmer climates or add a cozy sweater and some furry boots! Nicki’s aqua snowman bibs are from the same fabric collection (Merry Merry Snow Days by Moda). I used striped bias tape to add more interest and she’s wearing it over a Jumping Jack turtleneck shirt (made with the lower collar option.) . Find the patterns HERE.
Make a quick and easy Easy Up! jumper in fun holiday fabric. Make it Reversible!
I love this pattern! I made a dress for my daughter a long time ago and this pattern is the result. See the full post here. The Easy Up! pattern looks complicated, but it’s really very simple. With a full front and front contrast straps and hem kick pleat, it’s the perfect pattern for your awesome and fun holiday fabrics.
I used a cute, gingham bias tape for the hem on this jumper. I didn’t, but it would be cute to use the same trim for the straps too. Have fun mixing and matching your fun fabrics. Go outside your box! Fabric is called SNOW GLOBE by Moda.
Your doll will be ready for the holidays and beyond with an adorable Jumping Jack 3 in1 Jumper Set.
The Jumping Jack pattern is probably the biggest Oh Sew Kat! sleeper pattern. It consists of three pieces, a long sleeve, turtleneck shirt, a pair of wide leg shots, and a reversible “front and back” apron style jumper that makes the complete outfit look like a cute dress. This pattern is based on a 1974 design. See more HERE. With three unique pieces, you will certainly want to add it to your pattern collection whether you use it as a set or for its individual pieces . Check out the turtleneck shirts I featured in THIS POST.
Sewing Tip- any time I make a reversible outfit for the winter holidays, I often make the reverse in Valentine fabric. This santa jumper has red and pink hearts on the reverse.
Holiday outfits for dolls? Yes, please. Try the Bloomer Buddies sewing pattern for so many options!
Bloomer Buddies is a very versatile pattern. With three lengths for the top (top, tunic, dress) and three lengths for the bloomers (shortie, knee, capri), you can make it with out without sleeves for even more options. Choose classic Christmas colors (See more photos HERE) or make it with long sleeves (directions in THIS POST). Use this pattern to make nightgowns and pajamas too!! (See THIS POST and THIS ONE.)
Every sewing pattern is just the starting point. Once you have a bodice and a skirt, you can make a dress that fits your dream.
