The Easy Backyard Bibs Sewing Pattern is perfect for your 18 inch doll’s holiday dress.

I found this small scale red and black checked fabric at Walmart. (I always wash my Walmart fabric with a color catcher before I use it just in case!) The Backyard Bibs is a quick and easy jumper outfit- and I cut the waistband on the diagonal for fun. Find the pattern HERE. This pattern is available in 5 popular doll sizes in my SHOP.

The blouse under the bibs is the Playtime Peasant Top. I used THIS TUTORIAL to add the ruffle at the neck. Remember to not attach it to your side seam or your won’t be able to put the bibs over the shoulder. See more Playtime Peasant Tops HERE and HERE. Purchase the pattern on its own (includes a skirt!) or bundled with the Backyard Bibs.

Add lace to a peasant top for the perfect holiday doll outfit.

Sugar n Spice & Everything Nice Meets Party Time Peasant Dress for St Patrick’s Day

Sewing patterns for 18 inch dolls by oh sew katMake a Party Time Peasant Dress for your 18 inch American Girl doll for St Patrick's Day. Find the easy PDF print at home sewing pattern at ohsewkat.com. #irish #dolldress #18inch #sewingpattern #irishcraft

This spring I stitched up a donation for a local church’s St Brigid’s Day celebration.  I chose the Party Time Peasant Dress and made one with short and one with long sleeves. This is my go- to dress for quick, easy and cute!

I wanted to make a single outfit, with a St Patrick’s Day theme, that could also be used for other seasons for extra doll play.   I loved how these came out!

Once the under dress was done, I wanted to make a shamrock themed “overdress” to go with it.  I turned to the Sugar n Spice Dress, and decided to modify the pinafore to get the look of a vest.

18 inch doll in St Patrick's Day dress

I printed a new Sugar n Spice bodice, and on the back, I cut a low, scooped neckline.  I put it together following the pattern, and attached the skirt moving the skirt edges in about an inch on each side of the bodice, so the polka dot party dress could be seen underneath.  I added a few AD: kam snaps and it was done!  I think the overdress could also be worn reversed as well.  I don’t know which sleeves I liked better.  🙂

Tester Tuesday: JGoose and Co Alice in Wonderland for Hearts for Hearts.

Sugar n Spice dress for wellie wishers doll clothes sewing pattern by oh sew kat

Can you stand this cuteness?  Jaci of JGooseandCo is an amazing seamstress and she really has an eye for photographing her creations.  She made this special dress for her Hearts for Hearts doll with the cute little darts in the sleeves.  She said she might “draw it in” a bit next time, but H4H dolls are a little smaller than WellieWishers, so that is something you would need to check as you sew if you are sewing for these dolls instead.  Thanks Jaci, for such a beautiful rendition of my pattern.  Check out her Etsy shop and say “hi”~

Purchase the Sugar n Spice and Everything Nice pattern for WellieWishers.  This bonus apron is included in the pattern and also the pattern bundle.
