Yesterday I gave you the tutorial video for making the Easter egg skirt. Today I’m giving you the whole ensemble: the pink felt top, plus the Easter egg skirt worn by my mini Elsa doll in the image at the top of this page.
Click on this link, if you want to use Easter-egg-print cotton for your skirt. You don’t have to use Easter-egg-print fabric though. Any small print or solid cotton fabric will be just fine.
You’ll need a little craft felt and size 4/0 snaps to make the felt shirt, and you’ll also need a little 1/8 inch elastic for the skirt’s waist.
As you’ll see in the list below, this outfit will fit a surprising number of dolls in the 5-inch, 6-inch, and even 7-inch size range!
Which dolls will these patterns fit?
- 6″ classic Breyer Rider dolls (1:12 scale)
- Mattel’s Chelsea dolls (5.5 inches or 13.5 cm)
- Mattel’s vintage Stacie dolls
- 6.75 inch Strawberry Shortcake dolls (17 cm)
- 6-inch Enchantimals dolls (15 cm)
- some dollhouse-sized dolls (1:12 scale)
- 7 inch Lottie dolls
