Oh-Sew-Kat Doll Clothes Blog Tour

Hi all. I know it has been a long time since my last blog. But, we are into a new year and it is time for more sewing!

I am part of the "Oh-Sew-Kat Doll Clothes Blog Tour" hosted by "Seams Sew Lo". This is my first time on a tour and my first time sewing a Oh-Sew-Kat pattern. And all I can say is "WOW"! I love her patterns





I chose the "Bloomer Buddies" pattern. My "old" gal needed some new summer clothes. (She is an 18" gal)



                       https://www.etsy.com/listing/526062439/18-inch-doll-clothes-sewing-pattern



After I downloaded it I saw that there were 42 pages! I wondered why. Then I read the pattern. She gives the best instructions! So full of details and actual pictures! WOW!

What I really loved was the check off list of instructions that can be printed instead of the whole pattern. Great idea!


So I dug in my special box of fabric for doll clothes (you know the one full of fabric pieces that you just can't part with) and came up with the cute cherry fabric. Cut it out and started sewing.










In less than an hour I was finished. Here is my old girl modeling the dress:




Well, I couldn't just stop there....I made the top and bloomers next. Again, in less than an hour another outfit is finished.








I made mine quite simple. But, there are many embellishments that can be added easily. Included in the pattern are many pictures and ideas for ways to make it your own. 


Sew, sew cute!

I can't wait to make more!
