Sewing with Batiks Part 2- DIY Doll Clothes

If you visit your local quilting shops- you will find full walls lined with bright rainbows of batik fabric. These fabrics can be a little pricer than the regular quilting cottons, because many of them are specifically dyed. Browse through this section and choose a few to try on your doll clothes. Some are multicolored and some are not, which makes them the perfect solids to use in outfits to make them pop!!

Using Batik Fabric to Sew Doll Clothes to Add Fun and Interest

Make an easy romper with tied straps for your 18 inch American Girl doll. The Backyard Bibs PDF Sewing Pattern from Oh Sew Kat is quick to sew and has four options- two pants and two skirts. Find out more in the OhSewKat etsy shop.

Joss is wearing the Backyard Bibs made in a colorful batik. I used ribbons instead of straps as outlined in THIS POST. This simple pattern is perfect to highlight the batik fabric’s watercolors. Find the Backyard Bibs pattern in five doll sizes HERE.

Ivy’s festive outfit was made with the Playtime Peasant Top and Twirl Skirt pattern. I paired a solid gold top with three different batik fabrics in the skirt. This pattern lends itself beautifully to a quilting precut called a JELLY ROLL. I purchase mine at the AD: Fat Quarter Shop. You can get a full range of colors and prints already cut in long strips to make into ruffled skirts and hems, which can be a big time saver too!

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?
