Did you ever wish you could get a tznius doll skirt? Have you ever wanted to give a friend or sister a skirt for her doll and found they were just too expensive? Did you ever wonder what to do when you have just a small scrap of fabric left over? The answer is to make your own doll skirt. It is super easy and inexpensive.
What you need:
1/4 of a yard of fabric (this will make two skirts)
10 inches of 1/4 inch elastic.
Use 5/8 of an inch seam
1.) Cut out a rectangle that is 8 1/2 inches by 21 inches. The best way to cut this out is by folding your fabric in half right sides together.
2.) Along the top (one of the sides that is 21 inches) of the skirt, fold over 1/4 of a inch and press. then fold over 3/4 inch and press.
3.) Sew along the bottom edge of the folded piece (closer to the rest of the skirt).
4.) Fold right sides together matching raw edges. sew from the bottom of the skirt (away from the folded edge) until about 1/8 of an inch below the folded edge.
5.) Along the bottom (the other sides that is 21 inches) of the skirt, fold over 1/4 of a inch and press. then fold over 1/2 inch and press.
6.) Thread the elastic through the open casing (The top of the skirt)
7.) Match edges of the elastic. (I use a safety pin to thread the elastic through the skirt, then pin them so that the edge is just a little away from the edge of the skirt so it doesn’t get stuck in the machine.)
8.) Match remaining raw edge on the open 8 1/2 (now 7 inch side) and sew from just before where you left off to the end.
9.) Give as a gift or use for your doll and enjoy!
