Knitting for Dolls- 18 inch Doll Fashions by Oh Sew Kat.

Knitting can add a great textured element to your doll clothes and can really add that finishing touch to any doll outfit. Two years ago I set a goal to learn to knit. My mother was a master knitter and I wish I had done it while she was still here to share in my success. I found a local knitting shop and signed up for a beginner class and have been working on my skills ever since. Lately, I’ve been working on lots of 18 inch doll knits. Knitting doll clothes (just like sewing) is a low cost and quick way to grow your skills. I’ll share more as I go along, but here are a few fun outfits I put together with some knitted pieces I recently created along with Oh Sew Kat! doll clothes.

First up is Joss. Joss looks amazing in anything but she really shines in bright colors. I knit her thin strap cami from a Ravelry pattern with Baby Bee yarn from Hobby Lobby. The cami is the perfect thing to put under the Kay Carr short sleeve cardigan from her 70s Mix and Match Knitting pattern. The raglan sleeves are easy to knit the and entire little jacket sweater knits up really quickly. Joss is wearing a pair of capri pants made with the Oh Sew Kat! Playground Pants (no pockets) and just made them shorter. This fabric is from the Flowerhouse Wildflowers collection by Robert Kaufman. Cute cute!!

Next up is Emily!! She’s wearing a hot pink Karina Sweater (pattern by My AG Doll Creations) in the long length. The yarn is Baby Bee from Hobby Lobby in the princess color. Emily’s outfit is a Popsicle Top and Sixth Grade Skirt, along with Saige’s buckle strap boots.

And here is Riley! Riley’s outfit has a cool summer nights vibe. She’s wearing the Sandbox Shorts with patch pockets (as seen in THIS POST) and the pink thin strap cami made with the Baby Bee yarn. This cami was where I learned the duplicate stitch, by adding the yellow heart to the front of the cami. The cute yellow jacket is the same one Joss has on above, made with the Kay Carr 70s Mix and Match Wardrobe knitting pattern. This little jacket is such a quick knitting project and fits so beautifully, I know I will be making many more.

Tester Tuesday: Ruby Red Fashion Friends

Oh Sew Kat! offers pdf sewing patterns in a range of doll sizes- mostly from 14-18 inches. The Ruby Red Fashions Friends are a new doll in town- and some of the Oh Sew Kat! testers try their Welliewishers™ test patterns on them and share the results with me. Here are a few that look so cute!! (RRFF dolls are 15 inches tall. They have longer legs than Welliewishers™ so they sometimes need a little extra length on skirts and pants. You can find all of these patterns in my ETSY SHOP.)

Fan Feature: Patriotic Outfits for 18 inch Dolls

Marti McKee took time out of her busy day to send me a beautiful email about how much she has enjoyed sewing with Oh Sew Kat! patterns. She sent me photos of her cute girls in their patriotic outfits just in time for Independence Day!

Here’s an excerpt from her note:

“About a year ago, I remembered a $3 thrift store Samantha doll that I had purchased about 20 years ago and put away.  I had two sons, and they never seemed very interested in American girls (go figure, right?) Last summer I remembered that she was still waiting patiently for a new hairstyle and some clothes.  I started searching online for AG patterns, and fortunately yours were among the first I found.  I am very much a beginner when it comes to sewing, so I really appreciate how clear and concise your patterns are.  I was able to get great results (and if I didn’t, it certainly wasn’t the pattern’s fault!)  I’ve now made many dozens of items from your patterns.  Sewing has been a great creative outlet over this past year plus.  I decided early on that Samantha really needed some buddies, so I have acquired four “rescue” dolls to keep her company.”

I love to hear from happy customers!!! Thank you to Marti for sharing her beautiful girls in their Oh Sew Kat! outfits. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I do! I noted the patterns used for each outfit underneath the photos. All patterns are for sale in my ETSY SHOP.

How adorable is Kit? Marti cut one and 1/4th inch off the long sleeve pattern piece of the Playtime Peasant Top and used that as the bodice, adding elastic at the doll’s waist. She added it’s also perfect for a 3/4th sleeve. Her cute cuffed capris were made with the Picnic Play pattern, but the Boardwalk Boutique pattern will give you the same look.
