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.
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!
