The pair of leggings I listed yesterday sold shortly after going live, so here is another pair of leggings from the same fabric! Click the photo to view the listing:

My dolls appreciate anything Disney to wear! This Buzz Lightyear t-shirt I upcycled from a boys Toy Story graphic t-shirt. I used the this pattern from Simply Sweet and Sewn.
The matching green leggings are made with an altered version of this pattern from Sew Adollable.
The shoes are American Girl JLY purple flats.
I wasn’t really sure what to call this little dress. I used this tutorial, which is called the Shiny Happy Dress. My version would be more aptly named Cute Cozy Dress. The fabric for this dress is a slightly stretchable knit, upcycled from a human long sleeve t-shirt.
I have the dress layered over a white long sleeve t-shirt and grey 3/4 leggings (follow links for explanation and pattern links). She is wearing a ribbon headband that closes with Velcro. Her favorite sparkly shoes are special, and I will say why hopefully soon!
Being as how it is exactly 3 weeks today until Christmas, it was time for some seasonal clothes for my dolls. I made this black striped sparkle sweater using Simplicity Pattern 4297 shirt A and an “old” sweater shirt. This pattern is basically like a Baseball tee, only for thicker fabric. I also used it for this outfit to make a pink sweater. The pattern is fast and simple to put together, especially because I used the finished edges of the old sweater for all the edges of this doll sweater. Not hemming edges saves a lot of time! The pattern also involves a neckband, which I excluded when making this sweater and hemmed the neckline instead. This alteration gives the sweater a lower neckline. I took some pictures with the sleeves scrunched up to 3/4 length, and some at their normal length. They are extra long sleeves, which I think look comfortable.
Underneath the sweater my doll is actually wearing the silver leotard featured in this outfit. This is mainly due to the fact that I didn’t have any black knit stretch fabric on hand to make a spaghetti tank to wear underneath the sweater. I plan on adding a tank underneath when I have the fabric.
The skirt is two rectangles of fabric measuring about 20″ by 7″ (I’m not sure I’m just guesstimating). The two rectangles are red 2mm sequin fabric over black chiffon. The black chiffon I up-cycled from a human skirt. Although both fabrics are see through when standing alone, together they are perfectly appropriate. The black chiffon is about a fourth of an inch shorter than the red, allowing the red to hang a little longer. The two fabrics are joined at the waistband with a fold-over elastic casing. I used 10 1/2″ of black elastic.
I made the necklace by twisting white embroidery floss and tying it off. I have a Christmas charm bracelet that I have had for a few years and never worn. I decided it was time to make use of it and took off this snowman charm and put it on the white floss. The charms are a perfect size for dolls. Necklace!
I added some leggings to the ensemble as an afterthought. These leggings were featured in this outfit.
The shoes are Tree House Studio, which are sold at Hobby Lobby. I used them in this outfit too.
I know this outfit isn’t fitting for October weather, but had the fabric and a pattern to try out, so I just made it.
The dress is from here. I added an inch of length to the bottom. This blog has the most Kidz and Cats patterns for free that I can find anywhere on the internet. It’s great! I’m pretty sure if it weren’t for this blog my Kidz doll wouldn’t have any clothes that fit!
The leggings are the free leggings pattern from SewAdollable.com. These are slightly lengthened.
Next, I’m going to experiment with different types of dresses for my Kidz n Cats doll! I think Kidz dolls look cute in dresses, and mine needs some!
This was the first long-sleeve t-shirt I made, and I was rather pleased with the outcome! This is the pattern I used. I searched Google Images and found a cute little picture of Woodstock from Charlie Brown on a pumpkin surrounded by leaves to go on the front of the t-shirt. I printed the photo on iron-on transfer paper.
The leggings, of course, are the free leggings pattern from SewAdollable.com. I added about 3/4 of an inch or so to the top of the pattern to make the waistband higher on the doll’s waist. Previously with this pattern I had noticed that the leggings didn’t come up far enough.
The scarf is from this tutorial. The boots pattern is from here, and they were also featured in this post. I have felt for a caramel pair of boots and also black glitter, but I haven’t gotten to them yet…
