Here’s the first part of the free pattern set that I’m posting this week. It’s a simple pattern for a gathered-waist skirt, to fit American Girl Dolls, Madame Alexander Dolls, Journey Girls, and most other 18″ dolls. You can find all of my free, printable sewing patterns on this page, but I’ll only be posting one pattern at a time for the 18″ dolls. You’ll have to wait — check back with me later — to print the other pieces of the Traditional Swedish Doll Costume.
Tomorrow I’ll post the waistband, and Thursday I’ll post the tutorial video showing you how to make a simple black skirt for your own 18″ dolls.
When you print my patterns, it’s always friendly and kind to like it on FB, tweet about it, and/or pin it to your Pinterest page. That way you’re helping to spread the word that these free, printable sewing patterns exist.
Also, you must enlarge my patterns to fit a full-sized piece of US computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) before printing. My designs use a 1/4 inch seam (standard for many doll sewing projects). If you have any questions about piecing this costume together, feel free to contact me, using my “Submit a Question” form. I’m always happy to help!
