HalterAlls for Dolls is an easy to sew pattern to make a halter backed romper. Tie the straps/ribbons at the neck for a classic halter top or cross them in the back like overalls. With ribbon or fabric ties, it's easy on and off for little hands. This pattern is also a perfect starter pattern for girls that want to learn to sew for their dolls, or for more experienced seamstresses to make a basic doll wardrobe with lots of options. This pattern will quickly become a forever favorite!
This classic, simple romper is very easily made from a quarter yard of fabric (quilters' fat quarters work great!) in a woven cotton or other lightweight fabric. Use your favorite fabrics and trims for unlimited design options. The simple front presents a perfect canvas to showcase a special pocket, a favorite novelty fabric or for appliqué, machine embroidery, heat transfer vinyl, iron ons, buttons, trims, ric rac, and fabric painting.

I have not had time to use this pattern but look forward to doing so.
Another great pattern from Oh Sew Kat. Goes together quick and nice. So many options for this Pattern too. I have both 18" size and Wellie Wisher patterns too. What fun this was to sew for Elsa and Merida they are ready to go to the lake this up coming Summer and play in the sand. Oh Sew Kats instructions and pictures are so clear and easy to follow, makes it that much more fun to sew. Oh Sew Kat is always a email away if you have a problem. Such a great pattern for the Animator dolls and the fit is so good over their round bellies.
From printing the pattern to dressing the doll, it took less than an hour! Quick and easy. I made an outfit for my Aladdin doll and looks like he is going to play in a sand box with some trucks in his little halteralls...when the snow melts in the spring.
This pattern is so on trend! It was easy to make and turns out adorable! Beautifully written instructions; especially clear photos. I especially appreciated all of the options. Another winner!!
I was fortunate enough to be able to pattern test this pattern. As with all Oh Sew Kat patterns there are really clear instructions and it comes together very quickly and it is possible to achieve numerous different looks just by using different trims. If you choose to use ribbon for the halter ties then it is even faster to make and I have found this option to be easier for little hands to tie. It is a perfect go to pattern to make for a last minute present and I know for a fact there will be many more versions made in the near future!!
