Grace’s poinsettia bibs (above) bring a fun PINK color to the holiday season. I used it with the Playtime Peasant top pattern- you can find the 2 bundle value here. Perfect for warmer climates or add a cozy sweater and some furry boots! Nicki’s aqua snowman bibs are from the same fabric collection (Merry Merry Snow Days by Moda). I used striped bias tape to add more interest and she’s wearing it over a Jumping Jack turtleneck shirt (made with the lower collar option.) . Find the patterns HERE.

With a full front and front contrast straps and hem kick pleat, it’s the perfect pattern for your awesome and fun holiday fabrics.

I used a cute, gingham bias tape for the hem on this jumper. I didn’t, but it would be cute to use the same trim for the straps too. Have fun mixing and matching your fun fabrics. Go outside your box! Fabric is called SNOW GLOBE by Moda.

Your doll will be ready for the holidays and beyond with an adorable Jumping Jack 3 in1 Jumper Set.

The Jumping Jack pattern is probably the biggest Oh Sew Kat! sleeper pattern. It consists of three pieces, a long sleeve, turtleneck shirt, a pair of wide leg shots, and a reversible “front and back” apron style jumper that makes the complete outfit look like a cute dress. This pattern is based on a 1974 design. See more HERE. With three unique pieces, you will certainly want to add it to your pattern collection whether you use it as a set or for its individual pieces . Check out the turtleneck shirts I featured in THIS POST.

Bloomer Buddies is a very versatile pattern. With three lengths for the top (top, tunic, dress) and three lengths for the bloomers (shortie, knee, capri), you can make it with out without sleeves for even more options. Choose classic Christmas colors (See more photos HERE) or make it with long sleeves (directions in THIS POST). Use this pattern to make nightgowns and pajamas too!! (See THIS POST and THIS ONE.)

Sew a Mix and Match Wardrobe for 18 inch Dolls

First, I spent an evening cutting out all of my pieces.  (I actually put together about five bags of outfits…you’ll see them all here on the blog as I go along!  But the pieces for this wardrobe, all went into just one bag.). I usually start with one print, then pull in a few solids, or tone on tone fabrics to work with the print. For this project, I chose a gorgeous pink and turquoise batik fabric as my headline fabric. My normal capsule wardrobe formula is two tops and two bottoms. Sometimes I also add a dress!

I cut one School Bell Blouse, one Sandbox Shorts, one Popsicle Top, and one Sixth Grade Skirt.  (Click on the links to purchase the PDF sewing patterns if you don’t already have them.) I chose the solids for the bottoms, and the prints for the top. The reversible Popsicle Top will be print on one side and pink on the other.  The top left part of the photo shows a pair of Playground Pants.  I cut them out, and added them to my bag, because I could use the turquoise thread and give me a fleeting feeling of multitasking. It was a test to try out the leg pieces as one complete piece (it’s cute!) but it doesn’t really match the other items in the set. 

I sewed by color, so I started with the pink (so I could add the pockets before sewing together the blue shorts) and then moved to the blue. I wrote the patterns, so it’s safe to say I am pretty familiar with the sewing order. I highly suggest you read through each one (they don’t take long!) and get familiar with the basic construction before you begin. I always like to press more pieces and sew more pieces at one time, even if that means stitching something and putting it aside while I sew a few more, so I can press all at once.)

When I was done, I had this.  A four piece wardrobe to mix and match in lots of different ways!
