Here’s the skirt tutorial I promised in yesterday’s post. People wanted details about how I made that lace-ribbon-rickrack trim at the bottom of the skirt, so this tutorial offers details.
For those of you who are regular blog followers, you’ll remember a Halloween dress that I designed to fit 10″ and some 11″ dolls a while back, and it used a similar ribbon-and-rick-rack trim. And of course, just yesterday I posted my rick rack trim tutorial, which offers some great ideas about how to use rick rack in various ways.
For easy access, I’m going to re-post all the patterns you’ll need to make the outfit my Crissy doll is wearing below:
- Free printable PDF pattern for Crissy doll sleeveless shirt or tank top
- Tutorial video showing how to make the shirt
- Free printable PDF pattern for Crissy doll skirt (it says 14 to 16 inch dolls, but it fits Crissy too!)
- And once again, here’s a link to the rickrack trim hacks video
Wondering if this outfit will fit your doll? I have photos of a bunch of similar-sized dolls wearing this outfit at the bottom of the post. Scroll down!
The patterns you will download with those PDF links look like this (see below). Please show your appreciation for my free sewing patterns and tutorials by sharing them on Pinterest, Twitter, and other social media platforms. As it says at the end of the video, it actually helps me out a lot if you share them!
As it says in the video, the pattern for the sandals will not fit Crissy. That pattern was designed for smaller dolls with wider feet, like the dolls listed below.
Today’s doll clothes patterns (including the summer top and skirt) will also fit the following dolls:
Here are a few more images that I hope you will enjoy and share:
