The Dress Up Bunch dolls now have a quick and easy skirt pattern you can make.
And it’s FREE!
Psst! I designed the skirt especially to fit all the dolls in The Dress Up Bunch collection – but it’ll also fit a ton of other dolls. It fits the American Girl dolls really well, and I guarantee it’ll also fit a bunch of random teddy bears and softies piled on any kid’s bed.
It pairs really well with the shirt from the free Play Clothes pattern.
So. The skirt. IT’S SO EASY!
You can make it super basic – with no trim. That’s what Bean is wearing here on the right. Just choose a fabulous fabric and you’re done.
Poppy’s skirt – the one you see on the cover – is made from mid-weight cotton twill and has a band of trim added above the hem. That’s a great way to add flat trims, like lace or rickrack or pretty ribbon. The pattern includes instructions for adding these. Of course.
The pattern also includes instructions for adding trim to the hem at the bottom of the skirt. That’s where you’d add any dangly trims, like fringe, tassels, pompoms, or these pretty beads.
I love the shiny blue beads with these tiny flamingos. Very beachy and fun. This is the fabric I used.
Of course, like all my doll clothing patterns, there are instructions for leaving a tail opening for the critters in the collection. They like to have their waggin’ room!
Ready to make a fun skirt? They’re so easy – I bet you can’t make just one! 🙂
Have fun! And happy sewing!
