The Sixth Grade Skirt is an a-line silhouette skirt with lots of design options. With velcro closure in back, it's easy on and off for little hands. This PDF pattern is also a perfect starter pattern for girls that want to learn to sew for their dolls, or for more experienced seamstresses to make a basic doll wardrobe.
This classic but simple skirt is very easily made from a quarter yard of fabric (quilter's fat quarters work great!) in a woven cotton or light denim. Choose from three easy variations- make the skirt center panel from matching or contrasting fabric, try my easy pleated version, or layer lace for a trendy look. The design options are unlimited!
This pattern was designed and tested on American Girl sized dolls. Other brands of dolls may have slightly different measurements.

I have made this skirt several times and I am always so pleased with the end product. It is easy to stitch and gives a well fitted shirt that can be worn with a variety of tops. Tops can be tucked in as well as worn over the skirt top. Cop tops work especially well with this design.
I was so amazed at how easy this darling skirt is to sew. Love the variations - and how great it fits!
Love it. I had my daughter make one too. Easy to make and cute. Looks great with her top pattern
This skirt pattern is so easy to sew up, and the possibilities are so versatile. I have sewn a couple up now. Her instructions are very easy to follow.
