Like yesterday’s blog post said, I’m busy making a wardrobe for my niece’s mini Elsa doll. My niece’s birthday is coming up, and she asked for a few doll clothes for her 6 inch Elsa doll who only has pajamas to wear.
So today’s video tutorial shows you how to make a little Easter-egg-print cotton skirt with an elastic waist. You don’t have to use Easter-egg-print fabric though. Any small print or solid cotton fabric will be just fine.
You’ll also need a little 1/8 inch elastic for the waist.
I’m still kind of sick, as I mentioned in last Tuesday’s post, so my voice sounds really scratchy. Sorry about that. I made a mistake in the casing section of the video too, probably because my head is so stuffed up.
But I hope you can be forgiving and enjoy the tutorial video, in spite of these little imperfections…
