I’m going to show you how to make the apron another week, but to follow tomorrow’s tutorial, you’ll need yesterday’s skirt pattern plus this skirt waistband pattern (look on the right-hand side of the pattern).
This is the second part of 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.
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 sheet 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!
