18 inch doll pajamas made with Oh Sew Kat! PDF patterns

I found these cute, doll scale plaid flannel fat quarter packs at Walmart. I like to cut the plaid or checked yoke on the bias (diagonal) to give the interest and contrast. I used my piping foot to attach baby sized piping as I attached the yoke. The splash of color is a perfect accent. For Luciana’s pjs I also lengthened the sleeves to 3/4 length, left the wrist elastic off, and added a few inches to the capri length bloomers to make jammie pants. (You need to taper the ankles a bit!) Luciana is ready for a slumber party in her Bloomer Buddies pj’s!

Frequently Asked Questions document for Oh Sew Kat! doll clothes sewing patterns- what is a PDF pattern, how do I use a PDF doll clothes pattern

GENERAL QUESTIONS ABOUT OH SEW KAT! SEWING PATTERNS

What size dolls do Oh Sew Kat! patterns fit?  Oh Sew Kat! Offers patterns in 5 popular play doll sizes from 14-18 inches.

  • 18 inch Dolls like American Girl® and Our Generation®
  • 16 inch slim ball jointed (BJD) Dolls like A Girl for All Time® 
  • 16 inch Dolls like Animators’ Dolls by Disney®
  • 15 inch Baby Dolls like Bitty Baby® from American Girl®
  • 14.5 inch Dolls like Wellie Wishers™ from American Girl®, and Glitter Girls® from Our Generation®
  • 14 inch Dolls like Hearts for Hearts Girls®

What are the levels of difficulty?  Oh Sew Kat! Patterns have a difficulty rating clearly marked on the pattern cover.  Even though smaller doll patterns may use the same sewing skills, sewing smaller pieces (sleeves, collars etc) will naturally be a little harder than sewing for larger dolls.

  • Very Easy:  Great pattern for beginners, Uses basic sewing lines, and threading elastic.
  • Easy:  Simple construction, few pattern pieces, included rounded necklines and sleeves
  • Confident Beginner:  Uses a few advanced techniques such as button holes, knit fabric etc.
  • Intermediate and Experienced:  Oh Sew Kat! Doesn’t make sewing patterns that are this difficult.  

What is included in the Oh Sew Kat! PDF patterns?  Each Oh Sew Kat! Pattern is packed full of instructions, tips, and inspiration.  Each pattern includes:

  • Basic pattern reading instructions
  • Cutting layout and print guide
  • Step by step, full color photos and instructions
  • Text only printable instructions (to save paper and ink)
  • Full size, computer drawn, labelled pattern pieces
  • Sample Idea Gallery and Tester Samples
  • Find a Full Inspiration Gallery, Pattern Hacks, and Sewing Tips at http://www.ohsewkat.com.

Find an entire collection of easy to sew, print at home PDF sewing patterns for classic doll clothes from Oh Sew Kat!

Do Oh Sew Kat! patterns include the large pattern piece for a gathered doll skirt or ruffles? Oh Sew Kat! patterns do not include a pattern piece for the rectangles used to make gathered doll skirts. Measurements are always included and pattern pieces for waistbands and straps are always included, along with the measurements. Read why I do it this way and how to make your own skirt pattern piece in THIS POST.

How long does it take to make a doll outfit?  The amount of time it takes you to sew one outfit will vary depending on your experience, but as a general rule, most Oh Sew Kat! Patterns are simple to sew without a lot of fussy details and small pieces.  They are designed to be completed in an afternoon. Some patterns will sew up very quickly (Sixth Grade Skirt, Halteralls, Boardwalk Boutique, Four Season Skirt, Backyard Bibs) and can probably be made in about 1-2 hours.

How much fabric do I need for each pattern?  Each pattern will specify exactly how much fabric will be needed, depending on the doll size.  As a general rule, if the pattern is for a doll dress with a gathered skirt, you will need a minimum of 1/4th to 1/3rd yard of fabric, cut off the bolt.  If there isn’t a gathered skirt, most Oh Sew Kat! Patterns will easily fit on a fat quarter of fabric (18×22 inches), that are often offered in pretty, folded bundles of coordinating fabrics.  You can also find a great selection at Ad: Cricut.com

Can I purchase a printed copy of the sewing patterns? I don’t normally offer printed patterns. If you are interested, please CONTACT ME for more details. In order to purchase a printed copy of the pattern piece pages, you would also need to purchase the full digital copy.
