This skirt is the sister pattern to the Flossie Potter "Turn of the Century Shirtwaists."
Floor length with elegant lines, the skirt has 5 sets of accordion pleats that form inverted "V" shapes, adding flowing fullness to the hemline. It was designed to fit American Girl®, but with a small adjustment at the center back, it will also fit Journey Girl®.
The interesting design element is that the skirt is made in one piece, and only basic sewing skills are needed. If you can trace and press straight lines, you can make this skirt!
The PDF sewing pattern contains 11 pages of step-by-step instructions with full-color photo illustrations, 6 pattern pieces, and 3 pages of printable summary instructions (to save on printer ink).

I love this skirt. I made this elegant garment that turned out amazing. I love the style of your designs. Very elegant! I wish we could posât photos of our work along with our comments of appreciation.
Made this skirt and it looks beautiful. I hesitated on making this skirt but was to beautiful not to. When I finished, it was a lot easier to make than I thought. The pattern was easy to follow. I put it together in no time. I am going to make another, it was that easy.
This is a very easy skirt to make. Good instructions with pictures for each step. Your second skirt will sew up quickly because your pattern is ready to go. Fits well and a must have for your historical collection . Don't forget the shirtwaist to go with it.
