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 American Girl dolls would love to wear.  All of these patterns are also available in other doll sizes in my Etsy Shop.

Do you want to be a snowman?  Use the Jumping Jack pattern to make a super cute, snowman outfit that the pieces can be used for other outfits too, since it’s a shirt, shorts, and an open sided apron style jumper.  I found the hat at Michael’s craft store in the fall. (Maybe it’s a pilgrim hat?)

How about a cute cowgirl?  This outfit was made using the Playtime Peasant Top and the free skirt pattern:  Four Season Skirt.  The hat came from American Girl as part of Nicki Fleming’s Girl of the Year collection in 2004.

This darling angel costume was also sewn using the Sugar n Spice pattern.  The wings were found at the craft store.  I made a white dress, a white overskirt, and put a decorated corset over the top for this angelic costume.

Wellie Wishers Wee Wardrobe

Wellie Wishes dolls Willa Ashlynn CamilleThese 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!

Doll dresses for wellie wishers sewing patterns

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!

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.

Sixth Grade Skirt

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.

Sixth Grade Skirt Sewing Pattern for dolls by ohsewkat

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!
