Timeless Schoolgirl Skirt for WellieWishers and Hearts For Hearts Dolls


Along with brilliantly colored leaves and cooling weather, nothing signifies the Fall season like the start of a new school year! Forever 18 Inches has created a classic schoolgirl skirt for the occasion, with a design that's timeless enough to be historically accurate from the 1940s to today. Change the top and accessories that pair with the skirt, and change the era! This skirt pattern is a quick-sewing project that uses a very easy, non-standard method to mark and create the pleats that define this skirt. If you hate chalk and marking pens, this pattern is for you! Three options are included for different looks: front and back pleats with a faux-buttoned front placket, suspenders for a Swing-era look, and a simplified variation that eliminates the back pleats and placket. All options include a waistband with a flat front and elasticized back for a universal fit.  

This PDF sewing pattern will fit 14-14.5 inch dolls such as Hearts For Hearts and WellieWishers.  It is also available on Pixie Faire for 18" dolls such as American Girl®

Pair this Schoolgirl Skirt with the Forever 18 Inches Classic Cardigan to create a one of a kind ensemble!
