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.

Serger Quick Tip: Use stickers!

Do you use a serger when you sew your doll clothes? I’ve always felt that a serger is as essential as my sewing machine but I know everyone has a different view on this.

Try this easy Serger Setting Tip from Oh Sew Kat!

Use this easy tip to mark the stitch settings on your serger to make it easier to flip back and forth between overlock stitch and rolled hem. Use your serger to make your own 18 inch doll clothes with sewing patterns from Oh Sew Kat!

The Twinkle Twirl Skirt PDF sewing pattern offers many variations for adding different ruffles and hems. When making long and thin ruffles, the serger can be your best friend! You can use a rolled hem to finish the edge (in matching or contrasting colors) in just one step, compared to finishing, pressing, and hemming those little strips.

Make a ruffled twirl skirt for 18 inch dolls like American Girl with this easy tutorial by Oh Sew Kat! More PDF Sewing patterns for dolls available!

You can see that the thin, black ruffle at the bottom of Joss’ pink Twinkle Twirl skirt (above) is gathered just above the middle of the ruffle and is attached to the skirt on the outside. Both edges of the ruffle, as well as the pink hem, were finished with a rolled hem.

Use this Serger Settings Tip to Easily Change from an overlock to rolled hem stitch

Here’s a quick tip to make it super easy to switch back and forth between your 3/4 thread overlock stitch and a rolled hem. You will need two colors of some sort of sticker, washi tape, or vinyl scraps. Cut each color into 4-5 tiny triangles. And by tiny, I mean tiny. Maybe 1/4th inch long.

Most of us leave our serger set to a standard overlock stitch. I use a three thread since it creates a smaller stitch for doll clothes. Take one set of your colored triangles and use them to “point” to the current settings. My serger has two knobs, plus one letter dial. So I made a blue triangle point to each dial’s current setting.

Use this easy tip to mark the stitch settings on your serger to make it easier to flip back and forth between overlock stitch and rolled hem. Use your serger to make your own 18 inch doll clothes with sewing patterns from Oh Sew Kat!

Next, you will want to set up for a rolled hem.

The first place to look to make a rolled hem on your particular serger is in your owner’s manual or threading guide. This will tell you how to set your machine up and what dials and settings you will likely use. I also suggest heading over to YouTube to search for your specific brand-rolled hem.

Change all the settings to the rolled hem settings and test it on a scrap of fabric like the fabric that you use most often. Adjust the length and / or width until you are happy with the stitch. Now use a different color to mark these settings.

You might want to add an extra little sticker on a piece of tape on the inside of your machine as a key to remember which is which.

Once you finish your rolled hem, simple move all of your dials back to your 1st color (blue in my case), and test it on a scrap. The next time you need a rolled hem, you won’t need to look up the settings again, just turn all of your dials to your second color. You can add more colors if there are other stitches that you frequently use, such as a 4 thread, which on my serger, are green. For the most part, I just move back and forth between the 3 thread (blue) and a rolled hem (pink). I also used my label maker to remind me which dial is the width and which is the length.

Use this easy tip to mark the stitch settings on your serger to make it easier to flip back and forth between overlock stitch and rolled hem. Use your serger to make your own 18 inch doll clothes with sewing patterns from Oh Sew Kat!

Easy peasy, right? I’m sure you will now find lots of way to reduce your sewing time plus add a fun accent to your doll clothes by adding a rolled hem.
