#PDFpattern Wednesday: free skirt #pattern for 18 inch #doll like #vintage Crissy and BFC Ink #dolls

The image shows a BFC Ink doll modeling a skirt and sleeveless top that has been handmade of London-print fabric. She stands beside a miniature sewing machine and sewing table with stool. She wears knee-high socks. The URL provided in the watermark in the corner of the image is ChellyWood.com (a place where you can download free PDF doll clothes patterns).

This week I’m going to share my free pattern for making the skirt shown above. This skirt is too small for some 18-inch dolls like American Girl, Madame Alexander, and similar-sized dolls, but it fits the 18-inch BFC Ink dolls perfectly (see image above).

It will also fit the vintage Crissy dolls from the Ideal Toy Corporation:

And this week’s tutorial will show you how to add a simple embellishment to the skirt. We’ll be attaching the crocheted lace that you see in the image below, but that embellishment is optional:

The image shows a BFC Ink doll standing in front of a 1970's style poster. She wears handmade clothes including fringe boots, a spotty skirt with crocheted lace, and a short-sleeved top. The overlay suggests that the website ChellyWood.com offers free printable sewing patterns for clothes to fit dolls including this one and others.
