Swirl Maxi 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

6 reviews   |  

Groovy baby. This 1970s-inspired maxi skirt, by Genniewren Designs, is definitely in the running to be your doll's favorite items of clothing this summer.

Does your doll want to pick shells on the beach? Or will she want to dance the night away at the disco or the big festival in the park? What about an evening relaxing at home with friends watching movies? Whatever your doll decides to do while she is wearing her Swirl Maxi skirt, you can be sure she is having fun as a fully paid-up member of the groovy crowd.

The Swirl Maxi is a fun casual skirt with an easy-fit elastic waist and a choice of a straight or hi-lo hemline You can make the Swirl Maxi in two or more colors and in solids, prints, plaids, spots or plains. You could even have each piece in a completely different fabric if you really want to drown in that Woodstock era hippy-style patchwork boho feeling. The choice is yours.

The bonus halter-neck bikini-style wrap top is the perfect partner to the skirt, with its cleverly-shaped cut echoing swirly lines of the skirt. The top is ideal for a beach outing or for evening wear under a lace shrug.

This PDF pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

Enjoyable projects

I enjoyed sewing this pattern. I made several. I am always amazed at how precise this designer's patterns are. I work many years in the textile industry. My pet peev is having to fit pattern pieces together that do not fit. I can gaurentee, no worry about that with Genine, thank you again for the pleasure of making this very cute set, several times.

Hi Low Circle Skirt

I am not an experienced sewer and my first attempt was a bit muddled. I did it again and paid more attention to the pattern and the designer's tips and it worked out much better.

Amazing construction

It just goes together so amazing. Looks like a lot of wonky pieces as you start, then it finishes beautifully, and easily. I tested this for Genine, and made the top in the two colors of the skirt. Cute, easy pattern
