Button Front Mini Skirt 18" Doll Clothes pattern

21 reviews   |  

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!

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)
-Matching or Contrasting Thread

Button Front Mini Skirt 18" Doll Clothes pattern

Excellent pattern and granddaughter delighted to have a styly denim skirt for her doll

Authentic mini jeans skirt

The skirt is absolutely wonderful! Directions were easy to follow and the finished product is adorable, very authentic. I used some old jeans so the look is worn, and then used gold topstitching thread for the accent. Wow! Now I am going to make the Liberty Jane peplum top to compliment the skirt. Excellent pattern!

Adorable details

I made this from chambray and it was very quick and easy. Love the details on the front but the easy on/off of the elastic back.

Button Front Mini Skirt

I love this little skirt. It sews up fast and my granddaughter loves the button front.

Authentic looking faux buttons

If you want the faux button version to look "real" place the buttons towards the end of the buttonhole nearest the opening. Buttons always slide towards the opening as the garment is worn, They don't sit at the center of the buttonhole.
