    This is a great pattern.a gorgeous skirt and a decently easy sew. It’s a great way to learn to do French Seams. Great pattern!

    This pattern is a super quick, fun and easy sew! You will love the different length options for this skirt and the fact that you can make matching doll, child, and women’s sizes! It is perfect for matching outfits! If you need an easy start into doll clothing for an 18” doll this pattern is great for a first project!

  3. Nadia Fovakis

    What a lovely skirt! Quick and easy to make with a great result.

  4. Kerry Wallman

    This is a super quick sew, and very cute for matching a girl and her doll. This skirt is versatile, and I love the different length options. It’s great for a play skirt or a fancier style. The directions are clear and easy to follow – I appreciate that there is an option for using a serger and without.
