Scroll down to the second set of bullets for the free PDF sewing patterns.
Today’s tutorial video has been available on my website for a really long time. In fact, the photos in today’s video were taken years ago, when I first got my Wellie Wisher doll and started to design patterns for her.
Back then I didn’t have any video-editing software or photography software, so my pictures in the video sometimes seem too dark.
But I decided it was time to give these older videos an update with some touch-ups and voice-over instructions. My visually-impaired followers especially appreciate when my tutorial videos use voice-over, so that is a new addition to this older tutorial.
If you’d like to make today’s little cotton skirt, any small print or solid cotton fabric will work great for this project.
You’ll also need a little 1/4 inch elastic for the waist.
