The Twinkle Twirl Skirt pattern is a simple pull on skirt with an elastic waistband. Make it with a four fabric skirt, or a fuller 9 pattern skirt. Add contrasting bias trim for the hem for even more style. You can add a ruffle to the outside of the skirt near the hem, or sew it into the waistband, or BOTH!
Riley’s skirt, below, was made with quilting precuts! I used 10 inch layer cake squares to make the skirt, and a jelly roll strip for the ruffle. I purchased the cute striped bias tape, but you can easily make your own as well. A simple Popsicle Top (pattern also from Oh Sew Kat!) completes her outfit.
Joss is wearing her Twinkle Twirl skirt with a Picnic Play lace top. The top is simple and reversible and gives a different vibe each time you change the fabric. Here I sewed lace and cotton as one layer. The Twinkle Twirl Skirt uses 4 skirt panels with a cute, contrasting ruffle on top!
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.

These are some of my favorite holiday outfits. Add a peasant top and sew the pattern as written but change up the colors to create an elf or santa look. I used iron on for the belts, but fold over elastic would work too!

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 Oh Sew Kat! Testers love pockets too!! Michele is my pocket QUEEN! Pam, Sophie, and Shirley also add stunning accents to outfits with their pockets. Be inspired to try a few pockets on your next outfits.
