The easy to follow photo instructions are designed to help even the novice sewist have a successful time. In many of my more recent patterns, I’ve started to include some ideas and simple instructions for variations on the patterns. You can “Step them Up” or “Step them Down” to your heart’s content. Read below to see five of my favorite (and most popular to date!) pattern hacks. Click on the photo to go right to the tutorial of Kat’s favorite pattern hacks.
Find all these patterns, plus many more in 5 popular doll sizes in my Etsy Shop or other places Oh Sew Kat! patterns are sold.
- Pumpkin jumper: The classic Boardwalk Boutique pattern doesn’t have to be put away when the weather gets cooler. Use it as a base to make cute holiday themed outfits as well as summer play clothes. A little orange fabric and an iron on pumpkin face took this simple halter top to a cute jumper for fall. Layer it over a Playtime Peasant Top or a Jumping Jack Turtleneck!
- 50s overskirt dress: This one isn’t even a pattern hack. Make a 50s or 60s classic look dress with an overskirt for Melody or Maryellen. The Sunshine Dress is worn underneath an overskirt made from the Sugar n Spice and Everything Nice pattern.
- Make a Halter Maxi Dress: This easy hack to the Boardwalk Boutique lets your fabric shine with one or two big ruffles.
- Add lace to a ruffle skirt: Take your skirts to a new level with an added lace layer. See this easy tutorial for any ruffled skirt- shown with the Four Season Skirt and Playtime Peasant Twirl Skirt patterns.
