High-Low Circle Skirt 18" Doll Clothes

6 reviews   |  

Ruffles and circle skirts wax and wane in fashion cycles, but the combination is always romantic and feminine! This pattern, by Forever 18 Inches, combines each of these features with the additional twists of a high-low hemline and faux wrap-front option. The sewing level ranges from easy to intermediate depending on which of the four variations are chosen: Easy for the two options without the ruffled hem, and intermediate for the other two with featured ruffles. The variations allow for many different looks ranging from casual to dressy, and the elasticized waistband ensures a universal fit for dolls with varying waist measurements.

This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl® and will also fit Journey Girls® .

Recommended Fabrics:  Light-to-medium-weight woven fabrics with a tight weave are recommended for this pattern. A light-weight quilter's cotton with a soft drape is ideal for Options 1-3. Avoid stiff, coarse fabrics. For option 4, fabric with a shiny or silky texture is recommended for the Lining. Soft lace, mesh, or other sheer fabrics that don't ravel are recommended for the Overlay..

Love the pattern! Easy, darling on Kit doll#

I loved the finished product of this pattern. It did take me forever to spread the ruffles evenly along the bottom of the skirt though but hopefully i’ll get faster at that as I make more. I’m making a top to match today (hence why she has no top on in the photo)

Very good. Love circle skirts.

Hi Low Circle Skirt

A special skirt for your dolls. Like all of Forever 18 Inches patterns there are many options to sew and the instructions are excellent. I love the elasticised waist too, allowing some of my plumper dolls to also wear the skirts. Whether you do the easy options or the option with all the frills you will be pleased with the skirts.
