A sporty denim alternative, this skirt has lots of options for adding details. Five pockets, including front, back & key pockets and optional belt loops create realistic detailing, with a fitted waistband and front fly closure for a flattering fit and easy dressing. Add belt loops, and finish off with hot-fix nail head "rivets" for that last bit of realism. Follow the sandwashing instructions to give the skirt a "lived-in" look.
Dress the skirts up or down based on the top or blouse you pair them with. Go casual with a tee shirt or dressy with a blouse. The skirts pictured here are paired with Liberty Jane's Steam Bib Top pattern from the Tokyo Libby collection.

The Colvin Jean skirt is a pattern that is just too cute to pass up. I have now made it in both the wellie wisher size and the 18 inch doll size and love the finished product in both. I found the small skirt easier to complete as I did find the box pleat ruffle instructions a bit challenging on the bigger skirt. I di get it in the end though, and am totally satisfied with this skirt.
Lots of detail. The finished skirt does not look "home made" but can compete with any high priced outfit doll clothesmanufacturers offer. I added additional nail heads to the back pockets and made the Flossie Potter Tam Cap in the same denim with added nail heads to match. I will now make a complementary T shirt, leggings and vest to complete the collection.
Easy to follow and results were terrific
Very good instructions. Skirt fits very well. I really like the detail the pattern has. I am very pleased with the results.
Great little skirt! Good fit. Fun details. Used light weight denim....perfect. Very Happy with this pattern.
