Foster Creativity with Doll Costumes
Dress up day is fun for all ages. Sewing costumes for 18″ dolls is a wonderful way to nurture imaginative play. Doll Costume Dress Up is this week’s featured Sewing With Nancy online TV show, with author Joan Hinds. Watch Doll Costume Dress Up online!
Here’s a preview of the doll clothes patterns and sewing tips.
Cowgirl Doll Pattern
Sewing for dolls gives us permission to try a variety of techniques and to work with unique fabrics. The Cowgirl outfit is the case in point! Adding fringe to a cow print is not the norm for sewing. Yet, with this costume, your little girl and her doll will win first prize in the imaginative rodeo.
Witch Doll Pattern
Witches don’t have to be scary! This doll is donned in a mod-style Halloween outfit ready to give a little girl pleasant dreams. You too will have enjoyment with this costume, learning clever ways of adding trim and quickly finishing edges.
Super Hero Doll Pattern
Leap tall building in a single bound—well, not really. But that’s an option for play! Joan’s super hero pattern can create those playful thoughts, after you spend just a small amount of time doing the stitching!
Poodle Skirt Doll Pattern
It’s all about accessories! The sewing is streamlined, but the accents make the outfit.
Ladybug Doll Pattern
Next, a “cute as a bug” costume! It’s amazing what a little polka dot fabric, pompoms, and sheer fabric can turn into! This costume makes me wish I were a little girl again!
Pumpkin Doll Pattern
