Aloha Sarong Skirt 18" Doll Clothes

13   |  

Sarong-style skirts are so pretty! However, pleats can appear intimidating—until now. The Aloha Sarong Skirt uses a very easy, non-standard method to mark and create the pleats that are the hallmark of this skirt. If you hate chalk and marking pens, this pattern is for you!

In addition to taking the fear out of pleating, the skirt also features a child-friendly elastic-back waistband for a universal fit, and a faux-wrap overskirt and underskirt. Easy on, easy off, and easy to make! Finally, if you’re new to sewing and want to ease into the idea of a sarong, an easy simplified version of the skirt without the pleats is also included. The comprehensive, step-by-step directions with photos make this PDF pattern easy to follow and sew. Complete the look by pairing this skirt with the Aloha Pleated Top!

This pattern was sized on a recently purchased American Girl Doll (Chest: 11”, Waist: 10-1/2”, Hips: 12 -½”). The key measurement in this pattern is the width of the hips. If your doll’s hips are larger than 12 -½”, you may need to make adjustments to the pattern for an optimal fit. This skirt will also fit Journey Girls dolls.

Recommended Fabrics:  Medium-weight quilter's cotton with a soft drape is ideal. Lightweight versions of twill, denim, and sateen are also suitable.

Supplies Needed:
-One 5” long piece of 3/8” elastic
-Matching thread
-Optional: hammer for flattening the Tie
-1/3 yd. of medium-weight quilter’s cotton or other similar fabric
-One small safety pin

Skill Level:  Easy and Intermediate

Aloha Sarong Skirt 18 inch doll clothes

I love this little skirt! I made it for my niece's Journey Girls Doll, and it fit just fine with a slightly shorter piece of elastic in the back.


Excellent pattern!

I was curious about the way the pleats are made, and made the piece up both ways. This designer's method is WAY easier! Good instructions and it's one of my favorite skirts, just the right length. Highly recommended!

Aloha Sarong Skirt

This is just the pattern I have been hoping for! The pattern is easy to follow. A perfect fit is made possible by being able to adjust the wrap along with the bit of elastic in the back. The side tie is darling and adds that special punch. I made two right away for gifts. Great pattern!
