As promised, here are the patterns you’ll need to make the argyle skirt with knife pleats that we saw in Monday’s post and yesterday’s post:
- FREE PDF download of argyle skirt pattern with knife pleats
- MS Word version of argyle skirt pattern with knife pleats
This week’s patterns are sort of a long set of patterns, equaling four pages of patterns. Please note that the patterns must be cut out and taped together, as the instructions on the patterns explain. The image at the top of this page is only one of the four pages you’ll need to make the pleated skirt.
For anyone who’s wondering, “argyle” is simply the term used for the type of plaid pattern on the cotton fabric that I used when I made my doll’s skirt. You could actually make this skirt out of any cotton fabric or even a cotton-blend fabric.
Wouldn’t it be cute in navy blue with white polka dots, for example? I hope somebody tries that one!
And I bet you’ve noticed that there are some 18 inch dolls that fit into this skirt too… Yes, it fits my Kaya doll from American Girl, my 18 inch Madame Alexander doll, and my Crissy doll as well as my 28 inch Barbie!
Check out yesterday’s blog post to learn more about my vintage Crissy doll from Ideal Toy Corp.
Tomorrow I’ll be posting my tutorial video explaining how to make this pleated skirt. 🙂
