free pattern for 13- and 14.5-inch doll skirts

I’ve got a project to share with you today that is hot off of the sewing machine. With a very small investment of time, you can create a bunch of these darling doll skirts. This is a creative project to do for the special doll owner in your life. Stocking stuffer anyone?

14.5-inch doll skirt (free pattern)

Supplies needed

  • 9-inch by 12-inch printed soft felt sheet
  • Sew-on snap
  • Bias tape maker to make at least 9 inches of bias tape

Supplies needed for the 14.5-inch doll skirt

The pattern piece

Print out the mini building block dress practice pattern which is a miniature version of the Oliver + S Building Block Dress book dress pattern. Print it according to these specifications:

  • For a 13-inch doll print it out at scale 100%
  • For a 14.5-inch doll print it out at scale 115%

You will just be using the skirt pattern pieces. I printed out two copies, then I taped all four pattern pieces together to make one continuous pattern piece.

Instructions

Cut the skirt out of the soft felt, sew bias tape on the waist edge, and then sew on the snap.

No need for hemming as the soft felt doesn’t fray. And that’s it! Easy peasy lemon squeezy, right?

I used a 1/2 inch bias tape maker to make my own bias tape. For help with all things bias tape, here are tutorials from the Oliver + S blog:

    Thank you for this! My daughter is getting one of the Wellie Wishers dolls for Christmas so this will be perfect 🙂

    Perfect timing Rachel. A Maplelea Doll (www.maplelea.com – Canadian equivalent of an American Girl doll) is arriving at Christmas, so I need to get sewing some outfits right away! Thanks for the pattern.

      This pattern isn’t for eighteen inch dolls.
