JoanE's comments below says it best. I really like this skirt pattern. It fits the American Girl Doll perfectly. I tried making it with the scalloped hem; however, it's too small for my not-so-good eye sight so I cut it off and made a straight hem. I may try the scalloped edge again keeping both layers together and then stitching the scallops with a tight overcast stitch (similar to the stitch used for buttonholes) and then trimming close to the bottom edge. I'm sure the pointed hem won't cause me a problem. I do recommend this pattern so that you can use up all the scraps.
A great way to use your scraps. Easier then it looks. Great instruction to help save time and get a great look.
A one-of-a-kind skirt every time. Multi-petal pattern piece lets you cut out a stack of petals all at once. Arrange them in a pleasing order, or be wild and blindly grab the next one. I had the pleasure of sewing this skirt before pattern publication; it's well written with clear instructions, helpful photos, options for hem finishes & embellishments ... what more could you ask for?
