Now your Kidz 'n Cats and Magic Attic dolls can rock a Retro look in an authentic-looking circle skirt! The Elastic-Back Circle Skirt, by Forever 18 Inches, for Kidz 'n Cats and Magic Attic Dolls can be made in two lengths: a vintage 1950's below-knee length and a modern above-the-knee length. PDF Pattern features include a flat-front waistband, an elasticized back for a good fit, and a separate bonus petticoat for each skirt length. The skirt is a great choice for newer seamstresses and on-line sellers because of its elegant hang, classic simplicity, and quick construction.
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.
