I always get excited when I release my first pattern for the year and this year I’m super excited because I love the flexibility of this Peasant Skirt pattern for 18 inch and American Girl dolls.
It’s such a pretty pattern and can be made with either two or three layers making it a short or long skirt. Then sew the ruffle in the seam or top stitch the ruffles on top for added interest. It’s also super easy to create different looks by playing around with the lengths of the layers.
You can even use contrasting or complimentary colors or prints for each layer to really create an impression!
If you use a knit fabric like I have here on the blue one, you don’t have to hem it or finish the top edge of the ruffle. There’s no need to finish off seams either, so it then becomes a really quick sew.
As an added bonus, I show you how to use your serger (overlocker) to do the gathering and then sew the gathers into the seam. Oh, I do love my serger as it just makes everything so much quicker and neater!
At only US$6.95, it’s great value. Click here to get your pattern and start creating this gorgeous skirt today!
