Picture Day Outfit 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

72 reviews   |  

Make a darling outfit for your 18 inch doll! This 2 piece outfit pattern includes both the skirt and ruched top. This dressy little skirt is designed to be made from stretch mesh or lycra (dance and swim) fabrics. The finished look is a full flouncy skirt with some swing and bounce to it - adorable! It looks great paired with the ruched tank or a variety of other tees or tanks! The ruched tank top (also designed to be made from a stretch mesh fabric) is a variation of the basic strappy tank top. It is easy to sew and will add a bit of flair to the overall look. 

Be sure to check out our collection of Pixie Packs featuring stretch mesh! We have several to choose from.

Supplies Needed:

  • 1/3 yard mesh swim or dance fabric for skirt
  • 1/4 yard mesh swim or dance fabric for top
  • Small scrap lycra for waistband
  • Thread
  • Elastic
  • hook and loop tape
Skill Level: Easy. The instructions and pictures layed out in a way that a beginner sewer can understand. In other words, if you’ve never sewn before, you might find it hard, but if you’ve sewn before, you can probably do it pretty easily. The skirt goes together pretty easily, adding the bottom ruffle is the most tedious part.

Ruffle width

I have the same question as Linda D. 5/8 inch for the ruffle seems really narrow. And the picture of the finished skirt seems like it is wider. Please provide us an answer! Adorable outfit. 5 stars for the looks down to 4 for the confusion.

Picture Day Skirt

This is more of a question than a review. I got out my pattern and read all the instructions before cutting out my fabric. Do you seriously mean that the ruffle is only 5/8 inch wide as stated on the first page of the Flounce Skirt Guidebook? The pictures definitely make it appear longer. Can anyone clarify this for me. I am anxious to make the skirt and don't want to make a mistake. Thank you.
