American Cowgirl: A doll clothes adventure

Another doll clothes adventure. This one was a hodge podge of patterns and ideas. If you're interested in recreating it, here's how I did it.

The hat can be found at Hobby Lobby. I dressed it up with a brad and some extra material.

The skirt pattern can be found in Simplicity Sewing Pattern 3936 Doll Clothes. My first time doing gathering, and there was a lot of it!!

The vest pattern is also fromSimplicity Sewing Pattern 3936 Doll Clothes

The lacy trimmed off shoulder blouse under the vest was my own creation. If anyone is interested in the pattern, maybe I could scan it in. Leave a comment if you're interested.

Please join our flickr group and upload pictures of your cowgirl outfits or any other Finding Pins and Needles projects. I'd love to see them!


  1. what an adorable outfit. I would love to have the pattern for the blouse, it is so cute. How can I get it?

    BTW The doggie looks like a Chinese Pug, but I have never seen one that color. What bread is it?

    1. Jack is a Pugalier, a Pug mixed with a St. Charles Cavalier Spaniel. I don't have the blouse pattern available yet. But since there is interest, maybe I'll get working on it!
