Make a Christmas Elf or Santa Outfit with the Boardwalk Boutique Sewing Pattern by Oh Sew Kat!

No, it’s not too early for this!  It’s really not.  Do you know there are less than 80 days until Christmas? You need to get your sewing started now and I’ve got a few adorable outfits to inspire you!  You may have seen these images on instagram or facebook, but they are just too cute not to be shared here as well!

Wouldn’t Luciana make an adorable Elf on the Shelf?

I was working up some holiday ideas, specifically an apron using the Boardwalk Boutique top as a base (details coming in November), and then it struck me. Why not just use the whole outfit?  I immediately set to work and came up with these cuties!! No changes to the pattern- just add some belts, buttons, and ric rac and make some deliberate color choices.  I also think a snowman version would be adorable too!  They fit perfectly over the Jumping Jack Turtleneck Shirt or a short or long sleeve Playtime Peasant Top.

I tried the elf outfit with and without a ruffle tucked into the neckline.  Depending on the shirt you layer with it, both look cute!  Just be sure to attach the belt (I stitched black ribbon across the front and made a buckle with glitter HTV.) before you sew the side seams.

A little ric rac and some red and green buttons create an easy Gingerbread outfit.  Add some fun striped socks and layer it over a Playtime Peasant Top for a complete outfit. (Red high tops are made by AG).

Easy Jumper Sewing Pattern for Dolls: Easy Up! Jumper

The Easy Up! Jumper is an easy sewing pattern with lots of wow.  Fabric covered straps and a cute side contrasting pleat let you mix and match fabrics and colors.  This galaxy fabric was perfect for the Girl of the Year, Luciana Vega.

For this jumper, I used the simplest version of the pattern.  I left out the side triangles, and used Fold Over Elastic (FOE) for the straps.  Perfect fit and perfect look!!  I layered the jumper over the Jumping Jack Turtleneck Shirt which you can find HERE.

Once the jumper was done, I wanted to give it a little more.  Using my Ad: Cricut Maker, I cut out the saying, “Reach for the stars” from heat transfer vinyl and ironed it to the front of the jumper.  You can find sparkly HTV (and other colors too) at most crafts stores and at Ad: Amazon.

Step it Up Series: How to Sew a 70s Sunshine Dress for Julie – A BeForever Pattern Hack!

The Sunshine Dress, with its three variations and classic A-line look can easily be adapted to look like it came from the 70s era with just a few minor tweaks to the pattern.

I used this photo from Pinterest for inspiration.  Here’s another one.  Based on the first photo, I am using View C, the princess seamed option, but I really think that any of these views can be easily adapted to create this daisy trimmed look. The second photo definitely looks like View B.

Start with the Sunshine Dress pattern.  This pattern has had a recent update.  Check your file and make sure that it says Copyright 2018 at the bottom of the front cover.  If it doesn’t, you can find the updated version where you purchased the pattern, or contact me.

Sunshine Dress sewing pattern for 18 inch dolls

  1.  Raise the neckline by quite a bit- I used almost a half inch for the 18 inch size doll. Don’t forget the lining piece needs to match too!
  2. Skip the top stitching after assembling the dress front.  It would be covered by the trim. If you want your trim to disappear into the seam at the shoulders (and not go down the back), you need to add it over your seams before you stitch the front to the backs as I did hereIf you want the trim to go over the shoulder and down the back, it will be attached after the dress front and back are joined but before you do the hem.  I just attached mine to the front (to conserve my trim mostly).  Add the daisy trim with transparent tape to ensure you have the look you want; you can follow the seam lines if you have them, but if you don’t, put the trim where you think it should go. Stitch in place.  I used a machine and just carefully stitched down the center of my flowers.  You can also add your trim by hand.  If the trim was wider, or for a real girl and would be washed, I would put a row of stitching down each side to hold it securely.
  3. Raise the hem by an inch or even more. Dresses for girls were short then too! (I usually do this after the dress is sewn together unless I’ve done it before and have a good measurement.  Once the dress is done, it’s easy to (use a ruler) and trim off the right amount for right look for the era.) .
  4. Optional:  Add lace (again by hand?) around the neckline.

One final note.  I do not profess that this pattern is historically accurate.  I found an image on Pinterest and used my own pattern, which looks very similar.  However, in the world of child’s play, “close enough” is usually enough to save you a few dollars at the American Girl Store if you have a young friend pleading for Julie Albright or items from her time period and collection.  When my daughter was very young, and a new doll was released, I usually kept her focused on who she already had with just a few new doll dresses to fit the new era or theme.  The one that comes to my mind is when Elizabeth Cole, Felicity Merriman’s best friend was released in a beautiful pink, ball gown.  I was able to make and buy a few colonial dresses for my daughter’s Mia doll, and off we went to Williamsburg happy as can be.  Elizabeth never did join our doll family by the way.  😉
