Make Ruffled Skirt Bibs for your Dolls by Combining 2 Sewing Patterns

Add a ruffled skirt to the easy Backyard Bibs PDF sewing pattern to make overalls for your 18 inch dolls by OH Sew Kat.

Have you seen the pattern value bundles section of my Etsy shop? I now offer bundles of patterns for more than one size in one listing, with more being added all the time. I also offer quite a few bundles of 2 to 4 patterns that go together…like for summer or school, as well as certain pairs of patterns that were designed as outfits. See the selection of bundles HERE.

Oh Sew Kat! Doll Clothes Sewing Pattern Bundles

Some of these pairs include my first two patterns published, The Sixth Grade Skirt and Popsicle Top available in different doll sizes. You can also find the Easy Up! Jumper paired with the Jumping Jack 3 in 1 set for the turtleneck. My newest bundle pair is the Backyard Bibs and Playtime Peasant Top and Twirl Skirt. This bundle gives you the top (which can be made into a dress), the 3 tiered prairie skirt, and four versions of the Backyard Bibs overalls.

Combine the Playtime Twirl Skirt with the Backyard Bibs for a new look!

Make your doll a set of Ruffled Backyard Bibs with this easy pattern hack.

Create this adorable ruffled bibs dress by combining the two patterns (shown above) in the Bibs and Blouse bundle. Follow the instructions as written to make the bibs, then instead of adding one of the skirt or pants variations, add the two bottom ruffles from the Playtime Twirl Skirt. Go even further by adding all three ruffles if you like! (Just realize that the top ruffle of the skirt goes into an elastic waistband, which the Bibs pattern does not have. You will need to make the top layer longer in order to be full enough for the larger bibs waistband.)

Make a Country Western Outfit for Your Doll- with a Free Skirt Pattern

It’s easy to make these adorable, country and western inspired outfits for your dolls like Tenney Grant or any of her friends!

Two dolls wearing clothes made of pink bandana fabric with denim and lace accents

I bought this cute bandana fabric at Walmart.  They offer it in fat quarters in quite a few colors. I wanted to make some country and western inspired fashions!

I started with the simple peasant top in the Playtime Peasant Top pattern.  I made one top with short sleeves, and two others with long sleeves. Both are included in the pattern.

I made both skirts here using this TUTORIAL and the FOUR SEASON SKIRT.  Mix and match your denim and lace layers to create your own style of skirt!  You can also use the skirt pattern in the Playtime Peasant Top and Twirl Skirt.  They are very similar.   I added an easy elastic belt to complete the look.  The hat and boots are from American Girl® and belong to the Nicki Fleming GOTY collection.

 

I simply cut a triangle of fabric from my leftover scraps for the pink bandana, and dressed my dolls with hats and boots.  I think they look ready for some square dancing, don’t you?

Step it Up Series: Add Lace to a Ruffled Skirt Tutorial (Pattern Hack) for a Country Western Outfit for your Dolls

Here is a fun way to add a little more style to a simple “ruffled” skirt.  Take your simple skirt, and give it a country western look! Try it out in denim and lace!  Here I used the FOUR SEASON SKIRT pattern, which is free in three sizes when you join the Oh Sew Kat! Chat email list.  You can also use this technique on the Playtime Peasant Twirl Skirt.

It’s easy to add lace to a ruffled doll skirt sewing pattern.

Make a ruffled doll skirt with lace.

Step 1. Gather your supplies and prep your lace.  You will need a piece of lace that is the same length as your skirt measurement.

If your lace is already gathered, you can add it to your skirt after you gather the skirt piece and before you attach it to the waistband.  That will work, but I find it extra bulky to work with.  Instead, I cut the edge off of my gathered lace (and throw it away) and then press the lace flat.

Step 2.  Follow the instructions of your pattern, and stitch the waist edge and hem edge as directed.

Step 3.  Lay out your skirt piece, and lay the lace along the top, raw edge with the RIGHT SIDE up.  Pin, then baste the lace to your skirt. They should be the same length.
