Make it Monday: Teeny Tiny Snowmen – Holiday Outfits for Dolls

The Backyard Bibs pattern is quick and simple to sew- plus you can add your own unique flair to each and every one. I reach for this pattern over and over, no matter the season! Find the sewing pattern HERE.

Use fun holiday fabrics to make your own “one of a kind” doll clothes

Stripes and snowmen! Make a Backyard Bibs and Jumping Jack turtleneck outfit for your 18 inch dolls like American Girl with easy sewing patterns from OhSewKat!

Your dress can look completely different just by changing the shirt color you pair it with. (Both the red and black shirts were made using the Jumping Jack pattern.) The red gives it a more “Christmas” feel where the black could be worn into January a well. Instead of tights, try fun, striped socks and boots. I found this striped bias tape in a sewing catalog- they offer it in a few colors and patterns. It’s such a fun accent for waistbands, hems and straps in the perfect scale for dolls.

Who doesn’t love March? With the small glimpses outside that spring is just around the corner, and the daylight lasting a little longer each day, it’s fun to sew with shamrocks and rainbows.  Here are a few dresses to inspire you this Shamrock Season.

I used my Cricut Maker to cut out these Party Time Dresses.  Every doll in the house got one this year!  I think the rainbow waistband gives a perfect pop of color!

American Girl Review: Celebration Dress

I placed a few orders for some of American Girl’s new holiday dresses. I hate to spend so much money on them each year, but I often regret it because sometimes they are only available for a short time.  This year, I purchased the CELEBRATION DRESS and thought it would be so pretty on Nanea.

Celebration Dress by American Girl review on Oh Sew Kat
Celebration dress for dolls on Nanea

I was right. She looks dreamy in it!  I think the very top of the dress, although pretty, is very, very sheer. I can’t imagine it will withstand a lot of real doll play by real girls.

Honestly, I really bought it for these amazing shoes.  I love doll shoes and I have been know to buy more than one outfit simply for the shoes.  These gold sparklers are so pretty with tiny bows in the back.  LOVE!

IMG_3120
IMG_3121

The crown is pretty, and the bracelet is a nice touch (although I tend to think they should both be pearls or both be sparkles, but maybe that is just me. )  I love the waistline sparkle!

Overall, I’d give this dress a solid B.  Maybe I’d bump it up to a B+ because of those gorgeous shoes.  The main reason is because of the delicate top.  Even for older girls, if it gets ripped, I think the dress might be ruined.  But otherwise, the mixture of textures with the lace and the tulle give a pretty holiday look for your special doll.  You can find this outfit and lots more at American Girl stores.

Since I usually make all of my own doll clothes- I would use either the Bloomer Buddies or the Sugar N Spice Dress PDF sewing patterns to make a dress like this. The Bloomer Buddies would need a waist, and the Sugar n Spice would need the pieces bodice top (using sheer and fabric sewn together, then cut out), but both would be very pretty if you wanted to make your own dress as well.

Playtime Peasant Top and Party Time Dress

Birdie Wright shared some adorable doll outfits with me that she made recently.  I design Oh Sew Kat! patterns to be easy and versatile. There are so many ways to make them!  She used both the Playtime Peasant Top and the Party Time Dress patterns to make these  outfits.

Birdie used the sleeves from the Playtime Peasant Top and a floor length skirt, and added pretty lace to the sleeves to make this sweet version of the Party Time Peasant Dress.

doll patterns by oh sew kat!

Here she used the Playtime Peasant Top with long sleeves (and pretty lace hems!) and used the Party Time back pieces to make her top open in back instead of a pull on item.

Both outfits are adorable, Birdie! I love the way you used the patterns to create just the look you wanted!  Thank you for sharing!  See more Peasant Tops and Party Dresses here and here.  Buy the patterns here. These patterns are also available sized for the Wellie Wishers and Disney Animators’ Dolls.
