I like to call this my “mermaid skirt” for 14 to 15 inch dolls like Wellie Wishers, Hearts for Hearts girls, Disney Princess 13-14 inch dolls, and similar-sized dolls. I call it that because, if you look closely, the fabric of the skirt is decorated with sea creatures, including cute little mermaids!
Today I’m re-posting the pattern and tutorial for the both the shirt and the skirt that my Disney Princess Elsa doll is wearing in the image above.
To make today’s lovely lace-trimmed and rickrack trimmed blouse, plus the skirt to go with it, you’ll need some lace trim (obviously), some rickrack trim (again, obviously), some cotton fabric, some size 2/0 Dritz snaps or 3/4 inch Velcro (for the back of the blouse), and some 1/4 inch elastic (for the waist of your skirt).
