Wellie Wishers Wee Wardrobe – Sewing Gifts for Girls

Make your 14 inch Wellie Wishers and Glitter Girls dolls a full wardrobe of doll clothes with easy sewing patterns from Oh Sew Kat!  The PDF digital patterns make it easy to download, print, and sew. Follow along with a photo of every step!

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.

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!

I wanted to make two tops and two bottoms.  The tops I chose are the Playtime Peasant Top (purple), the reversible Popsicle Top (pink stripes and puppies).

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!

Sixth Grade Skirt- An easy skirt sewing pattern for dolls

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!

Tester Tuesday! Bitty Baby and Bitty Twins patterns

sewing patterns for dolls bitty twins bitty baby

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!
