Fan Feature: Disney Animators’ Outfits

I love getting emails or seeing posts of the amazing outfits you all make with my patterns. I was blown away by these outfits that Michele Anderson sewed and shared.  I hope you enjoy them too!  I love the entire ensemble!!

Here is Snow White. She is wearing a Sunshine Dress (made into a top- so cute!) and the capris are from the Boardwalk Boutique pattern.

Step it Up Series: Halloween Costume Parade: Elsa Costume

This year, I challenged myself to create a Halloween costume using only my own patterns.  I brainstormed a list, which you can find below, of some ways to take the patterns I already have, and create a new look with just a few tweaks.  I’m delighted with the results!! Presenting….Elsa and Little Elsa (otherwise known as Lanie and Camille).


Frozen inspired doll dress made from Oh Sew Kat! patterns


I used the POPSICLE TOP pattern, in a sparky blue fabric. I used the same fabric as the skirt for the inside of the top…the best part is, after Halloween, my dolls have a versatile separate to add to their closet, because I did not sew it to the skirt.  I glued on some craft show crystal chains, like these, because there are not any small children in my house any more. Be sure to trim your doll outfits in age appropriate trims.

The long skirts are made from the SIXTH GRADE SKIRT pattern.  I taped each pattern piece to a new sheet of copy paper, and made a new hemline (four inches down for Wellies and 5 1/2 inches down for the 18 inch girls).  Using my ruler, I just extended the lines to create new pieces.  I will say, this worked perfectly for the WellieWishers.  The geometry is a little off for the bigger girls, as the skirt got proportionally wider the farther down I went.  If I were going to make this again, I’d take a good piece from the middle, and possibly the side fronts so it didn’t flare out quite so wide.

Elsa inspired doll outfit by Oh Sew Kat!

I wanted the dress to shimmer, but didn’t want to mess with satin fabrics (I’m kind of lazy that way!).  I cut my pieces from regular Kona cotton…and cut squares of glitter tulle (off the bolt from Joann’s) that were larger than my pieces.  After seaming the sides, I simply trimmed the excess tulle and created a beautiful effect that is completely sewn into the skirt.  The cape is simply a hemmed rectangle of snowflake sheer fabric, and the snowflakes are from a scrapbooking sticker set like these. Not a permanent solution to be sure, but definitely will give your Ice Queen give a nice “cool” effect. The crown was from a limited edition holiday outfit from American Girl®.  These are the patterns I used:

What other costumes can you make from these same simple patterns?  Here’s a short list to get you thinking…

Halloween Costume Parade

Do the girls in your life like to match their dolls? My daughter did for years…even her Halloween costumes had to match. Here’s a few of our favorites from over the years.

  1.  Super Molly- this one was pretty simple.  I simply had to make a tee shirt, a mask, and a cape for Molly…she used a tutu she already had.  We decided on colors and a theme, and I used the tutorial in this post here.  It’s been a few years, but I did use the printable masks and simply shrink it down until it was doll sized.  With a little bit of heat and bond, you can easily add a custom logo to a tee shirt and cape- you don’t even have to sew it.  Simply follow Megan’s no fail methods for perfect results.
  1. Tutu Cute Angel- another easy costume…I purchased the tutu and the wings at the party store, and created the corset myself. This angel corset was a prequel to my newest pattern, “Sugar n Spice and Everything Nice”, which has instructions for both a corset and a tutu, which are worn over the doll’s clothes (or dress in the case of my pattern.)
  2. Little Orhan Annie-I made these dresses for “Character Day” at school.  The public school system is not allowed to endorse “Halloween” (nor Christmas actually…so the entire winter chorus concert had songs about the Winter Solstace”.)  I used a pattern making software program to create the dress.  I’m not even sure which one it was, but it was very clunky and I don’t remember going back into it after this. If I was going to make it again, I would use the Sugar n Spice pattern with a Sixth Grade Skirt attached to it to create the A line look.  The sparkle fabric gives it a little bit of a modern touch. I don’t think Little Orphan Annie wore glitter.  😉

Molly and her dolls don’t dress alike any more, boo hoo, so I encourage you to enjoy the tradition while it lasts in your house.  Check back to see my latest Halloween costume made from Oh Sew Kat! current patterns!
