Ruffles and circle skirts wax and wane in fashion cycles, but the combination is always romantic and feminine! This pattern 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® .

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.
I just finished sewing this skirt and it is so easy and quick to make. Option 1 with lace was the one I chose. You will love the way it looks on your doll and you will be so happy with the final result.
