The Easy Way to Make a Paper Pattern for Doll Skirts

Make a paper pattern for a gathered doll skirt if the PDF Sewing pattern doesn't include one with this easy tutorial by Oh Sew Kat! Find easy to sew doll clothes sewing patterns on Etsy. #dollclothes #sewingpatterns #diy

When an Oh Sew Kat! pattern uses a gathered skirt, it’s very difficult to please everyone by either including large, blank pages of pieces of paper to print and tape together to make a rectangle pattern piece, or to just put measurements and let everyone cut their fabric with a rotary cutter. As a pattern designer, I find it to be about a 50/50 split on what people prefer. Personally, I either rip my fabric, or I use my rotary cutter and quilting rulers (like these: AD: https://amzn.to/2XaHDeC) but if you don’t have one, or prefer to cut around a paper pattern, here is an easy tutorial to make a paper pattern for the gathered skirts if one is not included in the pattern.

Make a paper pattern for a doll skirt with just copy paper, a ruler, and a pencil.

First of all, no graph paper is needed. You can, of course, use graph paper to make an easy paper pattern. Most graph paper is 1/4 inch squares, so simply count and mark off your inches and tape them together. This technique does not use graph paper, but rather standard, 8 1/2 x 11 copy paper and a ruler.

Make a paper pattern piece for a gathered doll skirt with this easy tip. Find digital,PDF print at home sewing patterns for dolls like 18 inch American Girl dolls from Oh Sew Kat!

It’s actually really easy to make your own pattern with regular printer paper. Start with the basics of the math. A piece of standard, US printer paper is 8 1/2 inches x 11 inches. If you fold it in half the long way, it’s now 4 1/4 inches wide on each half by 11 inches long. Use this basic concept to make your paper pattern.

Let’s start with an easy example, like a skirt that measures 4 x 20 inches.

  1. Fold your paper in half the long way (hot dog). Cut down the center fold, and then measure over and cut off 1/4th more from the long side of each piece. Each piece now measures 4 x 11 inches. (Use a scrapbooking type paper trimmer if it’s easier for you!)
  2. Tape the short sides together, so they overlap by one inch exactly. The piece will now measure 4 x 20 inches. Ta da! Wasn’t that easy?

To make a skirt that measures 5 inches by 20 inches, you will need two pieces of paper instead of one. Fold down the middle, and then measure over another 3/4th inch from the fold in either direction. Cut on that line (5 inches from one edge. You will not use the other part of that paper). Do the same for the second piece. Overlap the short edges by one inch, for a total of 20 inches by 5 inches.

Let’s try one that is a little harder this time. Let’s make a pattern for a doll skirt that measures 6 x 36 inches.

  1. Fold your paper in half the short way (hamburger). This fold will be at 5 1/2 inches. Measure one half inch from the fold in either direction and cut along this line. You will not need the smaller piece you cut off. Your piece now measures 6 by 8 1/2 inches. Do this 5 times, so you have a total of five pieces.
  2. Overlap each one by one inch and tape them together. The piece will now measure 36 1/2 inches. Measure 1/2 inch of one end and cut it off.

Use basic math to make a paper pattern piece to cut out your doll skirt.

This technique can work for ruffles as well, like in the Playtime Peasant Twirl Skirt Pattern.

If you like to have a pattern piece when you make a gathered doll skirt, these tips/ideas will work for any size that you need. Simply work with what you know. You know what your copy paper measures, so trim it down and overlap it to make it the desired size. Save it for next time with your other pattern pieces.

When you fold a standard piece of American copy paper in half the long way (hot dog), each side measures 4 1/4 x 11 inches.

When you fold a standard piece of American copy paper in half the short way (hamburger), each side measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches.

Now anytime you purchase a PDF pattern that does not include the pattern piece for the gathered skirt, you have an easy way to construct one yourself without having to run out to buy graph paper.

Tester Tuesday! Bitty Baby and Bitty Twins patterns

sewing patterns for dolls bitty twins bitty baby

It’s about time for the bitties to get some love here at Oh Sew Kat! I’ve released my first few bitty sized doll clothes patterns, with more in the works! In fact, Boardwalk Boutique is now available!   I chose  two simple patterns to start because they offer an easy project for young girls to learn to sew. The pieces are a bit bigger than the AG size, and these patterns are quick and easy but can be embellished in lots of ways. The top is reversible!!  I do suggest you try the top and skirt on your bitty doll before adding the hook and loop tape. Depending on how “loved” the doll is, your bitty could be a little thinner than mine.  This pattern is also perfect for your Bitty Twin dolls too!

American Girl Product Review: Tenney Grant Spotlight Outfit

I love looking over the American Girl website when they have a new release.  It’s always fun to see what they have come up with now.  This past week, AG introduced two new characters:  Tenney Grant and her bandmate and friend, Logan Everett.

Sewing patterns for doll clothes by OH Sew Kat

Yes, American Girl has finally released a boy doll!! I have not seen either doll in person, and I have not decided whether or not either of them will come live at our house just yet, (we seem to have quite enough dolls around here ;), but I did purchase two of Tenney’s darling outfits and will give you my thoughts on them.  They are the Spotlight Outfit and the Picnic Outfit. Today, I’ll share my thoughts on the Spotlight Outfit.

When I opened the shipping box, I was surprised to see the new packaging.  Yes, I knew it existed, and had seen photos, but it still was a little surprising after years and years of red boxes.  I have to say, I’m very impressed!! The full outfit is in view, and in the case of the spotlight skirt, it is not folded!! This makes me very happy. The box is cut to sort of act as built in hangers…so the clothes slide easily off and there are no tags.  I had to undo some tape at the back to release the edges, and there were strings holding the top in place, but the shirt slipped right off without any issue. Well done, AG, well done!!

Sewing patterns for doll clothes by OH Sew Kat

First of all, the reason I bought this outfit is because I LOVE LOVE LOVE this lace shirt. It looks like something every girl seems to be wearing these days.  I bought the outfit simply for this shirt. It’s well made, bright white and will make a lovely mix and match item for any doll’s wardrobe!  The lace detail at the neck is stunning!  The skirt is also very pretty- I love the whole look; the skirt is really sparkly and fun, although I do have it admit, it’s a little hard to get on and off of the doll.  It’s a tight fit on Kelly here, and she’s one of my slimmer dolls. The headband is cute, but not very heavy, so I had a hard time getting it to stay where I wanted it.  And finally, the boots, well, let’s just say that if you are going to have western boots, they really should sparkle! I felt that that lace top and the fun boots made this outfit a good investment, even for someone like me, who sews more doll clothes than I buy.

Sewing patterns for doll clothes by OH Sew Kat

I used my FOUR SEASON SKIRT pattern to make a quick floral skirt to pair with the lace top.  This pattern is free when you subscribe to my email list, the Oh Sew Kat! chat.  It’s quick and easy and looks great in every fabric for every season, including looking really nice with Tenney’s pretty lace top.  I also think it will look nice with the a-line Sixth Grade Skirt as well.  I’ll have to make one of those up next!

Sew doll clothes for Tenney Grant with Oh Sew kat patterns

Overall, I think this outfit is a great value for the money. I’ll give it an A- (cheap headband and super tight waistband) and I’ll see what I can match the sparkly pink skirt with next, as well as share Picnic Outfit in the weeks ahead.  What will you mix and match Tenney’s pretty, lace top with?

Step it Up Series: Add Lace to a Ruffled Skirt Tutorial (Pattern Hack) for a Country Western Outfit for your Dolls

Here is a fun way to add a little more style to a simple “ruffled” skirt.  Take your simple skirt, and give it a country western look!

Make a ruffled doll skirt with lace.

Step 1. Gather your supplies and prep your lace.  You will need a piece of lace that is the same length as your skirt measurement.

If your lace is already gathered, you can add it to your skirt after you gather the skirt piece and before you attach it to the waistband.  That will work, but I find it extra bulky to work with.  Instead, I cut the edge off of my gathered lace (and throw it away) and then press the lace flat.

Step 3.  Lay out your skirt piece, and lay the lace along the top, raw edge with the RIGHT SIDE up.  Pin, then baste the lace to your skirt. They should be the same length.
