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.

Get the FREE Skirt 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 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.

Country Western Doll Clothes for dolls like Tenney Grant

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.


Step 4.  Gather your skirt piece as directed in the pattern, and continue with the rest of the directions.


Ta Da! You’ve taken a simple, ruffled skirt, and given it a new look!
