It’s Tester Tuesday: Playtime Peasant Top for WellieWishers™

Doll Clothes sewing patterns by OH Sew Kat

Ruffles are ideal for the “little girl” look of the new WellieWishers™ dolls by American Girl®.  They are designed for little girls, but big girls are enjoying them too!  The Playtime Peasant Top and Twirl Skirt are made with elastic instead of closures, so they both pull on over the doll’s feet!

Enjoy these gorgeous creations from the Oh Sew Kat! test group!

Find the pattern for WellieWishers here and for 18 inch dolls like American Girl here. See more ideas here and here.

March Madness is for dolls too!

Mary is super excited that her bracket is still in tact!  Are you following March Madness?  My family is “mad”about it.  Ha ha.  Well, with two sports’ fanatical sons, it’s probably not that big of a surprise.  My brother always organizes a family pool…ESPN makes this super easy, and everyone enters their brackets online and then chats each other up. It’s sort of like a virtual family reunion!!  For the first four years, my son, Ben, won every.single.time. It was so weird.  Lately he hasn’t quite won each time, but he does usually make it to the top two or three consistently. I’m always happy when my picks line up with his.  At least then I think I have a chance.

My beloved Wildcats are still alive. Here’s hoping this is the year!! #NovaNation

April Moon PJ’s

I just have to share these cute photos that Jenny made while she was testing the April Moon PJ Set.  Jenny’s daughter is into minions at the moment (and who wouldn’t love a few minions running around to keep things lively!). This was the first time she had sewn with knit fabrics and her pajamas came out darling! Her 5 year old daughter is thrilled and so are we.  Great work, Jenny, and thanks for being so willing to try something new to make sure Oh Sew Kat! patterns are the best they can be. As you can see, the pattern also works great for Our Generation dolls.

See more tester and fan photos of the April Moon Pj’s here.

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

In honor of the reel March Madness, here is a fun slideshow of my Irish dancing daughter, Molly, over the years, along with the dresses I made to match for her dolls.  Yes, I know, there are two green ones that don’t have a matching doll dress. I’ll get there.  Honest! And Molly reminds me of this all the time.  The matching dresses, because I don’t work from a pattern, are  That is the main reason I don’t sell them.  No one could afford it!
