Carol G made this sunny pink and yellow outfit for her baby doll. Isn’t it the sweetest?
Michelle A’s baby has a bit of a southwestern flair in her sunny top and skirt!
This pattern is the perfect pattern for those that are new to sewing. It has few pieces, easy lines, and simple elastic casings as both pieces pull on over the doll’s feet. Have fun mixing and matching prints to make your own unique play outfit for your baby doll.
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?
Today I’m sharing a little inspiration for some happy heart sewing. It’s almost Valentine’s Day! These outfits were stitched by the Oh Sew Kat! testers.

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.
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!
The Four Season Skirt is a quick and easy sewing pattern for 18 inch dolls.
Add your skirt to a peasant style top, like the Playtime Peasant Top and add a sparkly belt and a hat to complete your country and western doll outfit! She is ready to be a country pop singer! (My hat was made by American Girl® for the Girl of the Year, Nicki Fleming in 2007.)
