Doll Style: The Skater Skirt

The skater skirt is such a cute fashion statement.

It can be bright and saucy.


It can be cute and sassy.





It can be streetwise.



This skirt takes about 20 mins to make. When I made the black one I didn't have any 1/4" elastic left so I made a circle from 10 1/2" of my 1/2" black elastic. I used pins to quarter the waist and elastic then stitched with the darning zig zag stitch. The elastic sits flat on top of the waist.

The skater skirt and hankie skirt patterns come as one file in my shop.


Happy Sewing,
Val
