I made this set of Wellie Wishers™ outfits as a gift for a little girl, and I wanted all of the pieces to mix and match however she might choose. By choosing a focus fabric, and then using the same pink striped fabric in different ways on each piece, I easily created a unified collection of Wellie Wishers clothing by adding a few solid colors here and there.
Make your own capsule wardrobe for your 14.5 inch dolls with easy sewing patterns by Oh Sew Kat!
There are so many ways to change up your sewing patterns to create your own unique doll clothes. One of my favorite fashion features is to add a pocket (or two) to a simple garment. Some of my patterns include pattern pieces to add a pocket (HalterAlls for example) but any square or circle scrap of fabric can work too.

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!
