A free doll skirt pattern is a wonderful way to start learning how to sew with Frocks & Frolics. The Scarlett features a double layer skirt, elasticated waist and is simply cuteness overload! You can make this skirt for your girl, too. The pattern is also free and available here. So once you are confident and have made the dolls version, you can step it up and make a girls version. Its the same method and really terribly simple. As a bonus the girls pattern will be added to your my-courses area when you purchase this FREE pattern. Have a look at how we do things here at Frocks & Frolics. From detailed eBooks to video instructions we have it all covered. Most importantly our patterns make the most wonderful clothes. I love drafting a really special pattern and I hope you will enjoy this one.
The pattern is supported by a step-by-step guide (eBook) and easy-to-follow video tutorial, excellent if you are a little unsure about some of the steps.
All the videos for the doll collection are available for free on YouTube and at the Sewing Academy, so you can have a look before you purchase the pattern. Watch the main video tutorial now by scrolling down to the video section and enjoy.
This PDF pattern is designed to fit 18″ dolls such as American Girl® or Görtz (46-50cm). If you are in any doubt that your doll will fit this dress, these measurements will help.
Chest: 28 cm / 11 inches
Waist: 27 cm / 10.6 inches
Front length (shoulder to waist): 10 cm / 4 inches
Light weight fabrics work best as there are some layers. I added some of the fabrics I used for the vintage collection and the doll’s collection to my Amazon Influencer Shop. You can also check out the fabrics by Modes4U, a lovely shop we support. They are reasonably priced and shipping is about 10 days. Well worth waiting for, especially if you order one of their free shipping bundles.
