Not too long ago, some very dear friends gifted Thea with a very sweet doll. Just after she named her doll "Greta," she declared that she wanted a skirt just like the one her new doll was wearing.
So, what else could I do?
The skirt was really quite easy to make. My friend Casey recently made her daughter something similar, so I went by some loose guidance she had offered. I created a template for the color panel, and cut a few from each color fabric. This was all straight stitching (and a good bit of serging, which could easily be subsituted with zigzag stitching or another concealed seam). The most complicated part was threading the elastic through the waistband.
I am getting ready to work on another one of these - a gift for a very special little girl - and I was thinking of making a tutorial.
