Calling all Kidz ‘n Cats and Magic Attic Dolls ready for an adventure! The Forever 18 Inches Nautical Skirt With Pockets PDF Pattern a skirt with deep pockets—so handy for dolls and their friends who want to stow important treasures! Option 1 has decorative topstitching, an inset panel, deep patch pockets, a faux-buttoned waistband, and a straight gathered skirt that can be used with border prints or stripes. Option 2 is a simplified version of Option 1 to make the skirt an easy-level sewing project for newer seamstresses. Both skirts have flat fronts and elasticized backs for easy dressing and a universal fit.
Special Note - This pattern is designed to fit a Kidz N Cats Doll specifically and will not fit the standard 18 inch doll such as American Girl Doll. A KNC doll is 18 inches tall but has a much slimmer hard plastic body. You can see more info on our Doll Measurements page.
