Life’s a Beach Skirt by Merry Manatees

Anyone else tired of winter?  Just the name of this skirt had me humming with delight as I picked out a sunny print to stitch it up.

I love, love, love the gathered, short look of this skirt.  I need to improve my piping skills, but the pockets work and the accent is cute!  You create this full look with targeted gathers, which saves both fabric and bulk at the doll’s waist, which makes this skirt Fat Quarter Friendly!

This quick, little sew has a unique construction and overall, I was really impressed.  I opted not to add the lace to Maryellen’s underskirt because I like the clean look of the white, but the pattern shows you the option for both looks. Pair it up with my reversible Popsicle Top for a perfect beach day look.
