Button Front Mini Skirt 18" Doll Clothes pattern

14   |  

A new classic from Liberty Jane® - The Button Front Mini Skirt designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®. This cute button front skirt is the perfect go-to piece for every wardrobe.  The button front design can be sewn as functional or as a faux look. The skirt is designed with four front panels and 3 back panels, which adds interest to the original classic denim mini skirt design. The skirt front has a flat waistband while the back has enclosed elastic which makes it an easy on and off piece. The side seams of the waistband are ingeniously sewn together with enclosed seams for a clean and professional look. Bring out the seaming details with contrast thread or keep it matching for a more dressed up version. There are so many looks you can achieve with your fabric and thread choices!

Suggested fabrics for this PDF sewing pattern include: denim, twill, canvas, corduroy, velveteen, faux leather or suede. It is important to note a 1/4” button is highly suggested in order to achieve the right scale and ‘real clothes’ look. If you are having trouble finding small buttons, look also at your local craft store for beads that can look like buttons. This is a great trick when using a faux button closure! Be sure to check out our selection of Pixie Packs for  denim and notions for this project!

Bonus distressing tip/techniques included!

Supplies Needed:
-1/4 yard mid-weight fabric (denim, twill, corduroy, faux leather, suede, leather)
-5 inch piece of 3/8” elastic
-5 - 1/4” buttons (or metal studs, brads, beads, etc)

Nice fairly easy pattern

Fairly simple pattern and easy to follow. I would recommend fabric with less stretch rather than more. Also, lighter weight denim is easier to sew with than heavy weight especially near the waistband.

Really Cute!

The pattern was well written and very easy to follow. I added 3/4" length to it as I felt it was too short, especially since I also have a Maplelea doll who would be wearing it and she has a little longer inseam. I used tiny antique brass coloured brads for the 'buttons' over uncut buttonholes. For the actual closeure, I used 3 black metal snaps. Works perfectly, especially for little fingers.
