Final Touches - Accessories for Dolls
As you prepare to sew your special doll clothing patterns, here's a few suggestions to personalize the outfit for that special girl.
  • Personality - What kind of little girl are you sewing for? Does she like fancy dresses or casual jeans, tea parties or camping? Find out what her interests are and that will help you pick out the style as well as the fabric for the doll clothes sewing patterns. 
  • Personal Touch - Add some details that make the project 'yours'.  A special applique', dainty buttons, lace, sequins or even a bit of hand embroidery will add a touch of originality and uniqueness to this one of a kind doll clothing pattern.
  • Jewelry and Hair Accessories for dolls - Making a headband or small scrunchy  is fairly simple. Use material leftover from a project for a coordinating look, or add color to an outift that is made with solid colors. Add some sequins and ribbon and make a small necklace or bracelet to dress it up. 
  • Child's Imagination - If you aren't sure what fabric design to use, or are having trouble deciding on an different accessories for dolls, or simply can't think of one, just ask the little girl you're sewing for. Once she sees what you're making, she may have great ideas to add.
  • Other Accessories for dolls - Some of our patterns for 18 doll clothes also have patterns for accessories, such as purses and bags. But as you finish the pattern you're working on, if it doesn't have an accessory for it and you think it needs one, create it! Perhaps a beach towel is in order or garden tools and a hat. Maybe Dolly needs a pet or fuzzy slippers. Be creative.
  • Home Business - If you make doll clothes as part of a home business, think about the doll clothing patterns and whether or not it is easily duplicated or if you'd rather create one-of-a-kind outfits. Do complete each outfit by making 1 or 2 accessories for dolls that coordinate with her outfit.
These are just a few ideas to help you create a wardrobe from our selection of doll clothing patterns. Once you have a large selection of doll clothes made up, you will want to build up a nice supply of accessories for dolls. Then, storage for those cute outfits will most likely be your next project!
