The Liberty Jane Harajuku Station Skirt will be sure to delight your 11-1/2” Fashion Doll such as Barbie Fashionista or Disney Princess (both pictured modeling the skirts). Harajuku is the street fashion of Japanese punk rock influenced youth. Their inspiration is anime and album covers, and their mecca is the park next to Harajuku Station in Tokyo. And thanks to Gwen Stefanie, this sub-culture went pop culture as she shared it with the west on tours, videos, and commercial clothes and fragrances. Liberty Jane has translated this fun style into a cute doll size outfit, Harajuku Station, and now you can make this fun mini-skirt quickly and easily following our full color step by step instructions! The skirt design includes a drop waist yoke with a flat front waistband (similar to the KNC mini skirt) with an elastic back portion. The ruffle can be sewn with or without the tulle layer, providing a variety of looks! Complete the look with a top made from the T-Shirt Variations Pattern (available separately).
Suggested fabrics include: Woven cotton, taffeta, satin, lightweight denim, and rayonSupplies Needed:

Fun and easy pattern that looks cute! I enjoyed making it as written and then adding an inch to the ruffle and omitting the tulle (pink skirt in pictures). The pattern appears to be designed for “modern” Barbie, who must have a bigger waist. To get it to fit the 1990s dolls from my childhood, I put the skirt front piece 1/4 inch over the fold when cutting out and subtracted 1/4 inch from the elastic for the skirt back (pink skirt in photos).
I bought this pattern a while back, and when I saw the directions, I was way too intimidated to try it. I've done some other, more simple patterns since then, and I thought I was ready to give it a try. I still didn't understand how the waistband directions worked. So I followed the directions to the letter. It was much more simple than I had thought. Suddenly the whole thing made sense. To anyone who is intimidated by the direction: just try it. It is easier than it looks. The result is a cute skirt that is very clean and professional looking. Thank you so much for this pattern!
Love the pattern, had to buy it as soon as I saw it too bad that I did not read that top is sold separately, but still great pattern
