The image shows a printable rectangular skirt pattern for dolls that measure 14 inches, 15 inches, or 16 inches tall. This skirt pattern is called the "short schoolgirl pattern" for dolls, and it's one of two patterns that have been designed to fit any number of different dolls that range in size between the American Girl company's Wellie Wisher doll size and the Hearts for Hearts girl dolls. There's a photograph of three different dolls wearing this skirt after it has been sewn using this sewing pattern for the "schoolgirls' short skirt": the Velvet doll from the Crissy doll line, the Consuelo doll from the Hearts4Hearts Girls, and Kendall from American Girl's Wellie Wisher line of dolls. This simple-to-sew elastic waist skirt pattern comes in two pieces which you must print, cut out, and tape together. This free pattern (pattern 1 from the two patterns required) also includes a pattern for making doll sandals to fit dolls in this 14" to 16" height range. The sandal measures 2 inches or 5 cm from heel to toe. It's one and one-quarter inches across at the widest point of the foot (3.2 cm). The sandal craft project uses black foam, another color of foam to form the sole, and either a ribbon or bias tape to form the strap. You could also use colored elastic to form the strap. This pattern is marked with "Creative Commons Attribution" which means you should acknowledge where the pattern came from if you wish to use it. The pattern also offers a watermark of the website ChellyWood.com, where you can also find tutorial videos showing you how to make the skirt and the sandals.
