I used a fat quarter of cotton fabric. I cut the ruffle first at 3 inches (I had to piece it together to make it long enough- I like to use double the length of the piece I am attaching it to- in this case, the bottom edge of the Playtime Peasant Top. Then I found I didn’t have quite enough fabric left for the full sleeve pieces. I cut the bodice as normal, and then shortened the sleeves so they would fit. I used the rolled hem on my serger to hem both the sleeves (a great way to hem if you are short on fabric!) and the ruffle.

I used a fold over elastic headband with a flower attached as the belt. I purchased this one in the baby section of Target or a similar store. You can easily make your own with this Tutorial.

Quick Project: Two colored doll headband like Kira Bailey’s™

Easy Headband Tutorial: Make a two colored knit headband for your 18 inch Doll

Kira Bailey™ is the 2021 Girl of the Year from American Girl®. This Michigan girl spends the summer in the Australian Outback, working at her aunt’s animal rescue. Her fashions are utilitarian and pretty! Make your Kira doll a two colored knit headband with this easy sewing tutorial.

Make your 18 inch doll a two colored knit headband just like Kira's from American Girl. Easy to follow sewing tutorial for dolls by Oh Sew Kat!

Use a stretchy knit fabric for the best results. Tee shirts from the craft store are perfect for this project.

  • Cut two rectangles of knit fabric, one of each color, 2 inches by 10 inches.
  • With right sides together, use a 1/4th inch seam to sew the long side of each piece, to form tubes (Photo #1)
  • Turn the tubes right side out, and give them a press with steam to reduce any stretch from sewing. (Use the FASTURNS to make this task super easy!!)
  • Lay the tubes on the table, forming a cross. One tube will be below the other at the middle. (Photo #2)
  • Fold the bottom tube in half, aligning the short ends, so the other tube is inside (Photo #3)
  • Fold the other tube to align the short ends with the short ends of the first one. All four ends are now stacked on top of each other. (Photo #4)
  • Stitch across the four layers using a 1/4th inch seam.
  • Turn the headband right side out, so the stitching in on the inside, and pull the headband so one color is on one side, and the other side is the other color. (Photo #5)
