What is more fun than dressing dolls up in adorable Halloween costumes that you make yourself? Here are a few ideas of costumes that your Wellie Wishers would love to wear. All of these patterns are also available in other doll sizes in my Etsy Shop.
These adorable outfits were made as a special order for a good friend to give as a gift. She gave me a price range, and let me decide what I would make. I love to sew that way! I don’t know the child, so I thought a few pieces that mixed and matched together in different ways might be a good place to start.
Make doll clothes for Wellie Wishers and Glitter Girls 14.5 inch Dolls with easy sewing patterns from Oh Sew Kat!
My favorite pattern for all dolls, but especially the Wellie Wishers, is the Party Time Peasant Dress. This dress lets me use three different, cute fabrics at once and is now available in 5 doll sizes!
The two bottoms I decided on are the Four Season Skirt, and Sandbox Shorts with contrasting pockets. Between these four pieces, the lucky, little girl can make 6 different outfits! Because I used fat quarters, I still have enough of each color that I could make another set. Inexpensive fat quarter bundles from Walmart and other craft stores like Hobby Lobby are great for these kinds of projects!
I hope the little girl enjoys her new doll clothes! I had fun making them for her! Find the link for the free Four Season Skirt pattern by clicking HERE.
The Sixth Grade Skirt was the pattern that started it all! I had just finished a pattern making class, and a few friends and I were all working together to publish our first patterns. We worked together and tested each others’ work, challenging ourselves to publish our first patterns! We all did it! And the Sixth Grade Skirt was mine.
Because it was my first pattern, the learning curve was pretty steep. Who knew there was so much work in a pattern? I chose a simple design that my (at the time) 12 year old daughter could easily sew. Thank you to all of you that have purchased this (and any that have come since!) pattern!
The Sixth Grade Skirt is a simple skirt to sew. From cutting to finishing, you can easily complete it in under an hour. With the overlap in back, it’s easy to fit for different sized dolls. You can make it for summer, or winter, or anything in between!
Do you have a favorite team? It’s so fun to stitch up a spirit outfit for your dolls too. The Four Season Skirt, with just a few seams and no pattern pieces, is my favorite to make up a quick spirit outfit whether it’s MLB Baseball, our favorite colleges, or a football team. This skirt can be made is less than an hour, and the pattern is FREE in 3 sizes when you join my email list. It’s the perfect match for the reversible Popsicle Top!
This cute Wisconsin outfit was stitched up by the Pearl Pony. You can find her on Facebook. She also used the Popsicle Top pattern with the Four Season Skirt.
Don’t forget the Wellie Wishers and the Glitter Girls! They have school spirit too! Lanie’s ready for Hokie Game Day in her Va Tech FOUR SEASON SKIRT and Willa’s pinafore is made with the Sugar n Spice pattern.
It’s time to Style it Up! Open up your doll’s closet and dress her in a fresh, new color combination! Getting ready to sew? Try putting these fun colors together, either as complete items, or bright accents.
Dress your dolls in dreamy pinks and blues to move from a balmy spring to a sizzling summer!
Bright blue and hot pink make me think of the the tropics. A bright combination in any pattern, your dolls will shine in these colors. I used one batik print as my focal point for these outfits. (Grace is wearing a School Bell Blouse with the easy Sixth Grade Skirt. Lanie has a Popsicle Top paired with Sandbox Shorts). I love the added sparkles a few crystals can give!
How about just a splash of color?
You can even take each shade a little lighter!
Here the Boardwalk Boutique for Animators gives the princess dolls a soft and feminine look for spring and summer.
It’s about time for the bitties to get some love here at Oh Sew Kat! I’ve released my first few bitty sized doll clothes patterns, with more in the works! In fact, Boardwalk Boutique is now available! I chose two simple patterns to start because they offer an easy project for young girls to learn to sew. The pieces are a bit bigger than the AG size, and these patterns are quick and easy but can be embellished in lots of ways. The top is reversible!! I do suggest you try the top and skirt on your bitty doll before adding the hook and loop tape. Depending on how “loved” the doll is, your bitty could be a little thinner than mine. This pattern is also perfect for your Bitty Twin dolls too!
