Step it Up Series: Make a Sixth Grade Skirt with Ruffle or Lace Hem! Easy Skirt Pattern Hack!

Add a ruffle or lace hem to your Sixth Grade Skirt!

American girl dolls DIY skirt tutorial

The Sixth Grade Skirt is the perfect skirt to make for your doll all year long.  It takes such a tiny bit of fabric and goes together in a jiffy!  Here’s a way to give your Sixth Grade Skirt a new look! Add a cute hem to your skirt with this easy tutorial.

American girl dolls sewing patterns

First, you will need the pattern.  I offer the Sixth Grade Skirt in five sizes:  18 inch, 16 inch Disney Animators, 15 inch Bitty Baby, 14.5 inch Wellie Wishers, and 14 inch HeartsForHearts Girls.  (Because this skirt is fitted and does not use elastic, I encourage you to check the fit on your own doll before you sew on the hook and loop tape, especially if your doll does not have a cloth body.  If you purchased this pattern before June 2018, be sure to get the updated version! (Check your etsy purchase history, contact me, or Pixie Faire.)

Sixth Grade A line skirt sewing pattern for dolls

Step 1. To keep the skirt’s cute silhouette, you need to remove a little bit from the hem of the pattern pieces.  You can do this after you sew the pieces together, but it’s easier to just cut the seam allowance off the bottom of each pattern piece.  Cut out your skirt and put it together according to the directions.  Before you add the waistband, complete Step 2 below.

Step 2.  To add a fabric ruffle for an 18 inch doll skirt, cut a strip of fabric 2 inches by 27-36 inches.  (27 inches will give a less full ruffle than 36 inches will.)  You will need a thinner, and shorter piece for smaller dolls. Measure the hem of your skirt, and cut the ruffle to 1.5 or 2 times that length.  Pre-gathered eyelet lace also makes a pretty hem!

Skirt with lace hem skirt with ruffle hem Step 3.  With wrong sides together, press your ruffle the long way.  The fold will be the hem.  Gather the top, raw edges or use (my new favorite!) a ruffle foot.  With right sides together, pin the ruffle (or your lace or trim) to the hem of your skirt, and stitch with a 1/4th inch seam allowance.  Use an overlock stitch, zigzag stitch, or serger to give the seam allowance a clean finish.  Press it towards the skirt, and top stitch close to the edge.

Step 4.

That was easy!  Complete the skirt according to the directions.  Your Sixth Grade Skirt is complete!

Sixth Grade Skirt- An easy skirt sewing pattern for dolls

The Sixth Grade Skirt was the pattern that started it all!  I had just finished a pattern making class, and a few friends and I were all working together to publish our first patterns.  We worked together and tested each others’ work, challenging ourselves to publish our first patterns! We all did it!  And the Sixth Grade Skirt was mine.

Step it Up Series: Sugar N Spice Peplum Top for Dolls – Easy Pattern Hack!

Take your patterns to the next level when you step up the Sugar n Spice Dress to this cute, peplum top!

Sugar n Spice Step it Up Make a Peplum Top by oh sewkat

This cute little top is easy to sew from the Sugar n Spice Dress pattern.  Buy it in my Etsy shop. The pattern bundle also includes the dress up accessories! This pattern is also available sized for WellieWishers and Animators Dolls.

 

Make your dress into a Peplum Top with this easy variation to the pattern. This tutorial assumes you have a basic knowledge of sewing.  Please refer to the pattern instructions for more detail, as well as the pattern pieces.

  1.  Cut out your pattern pieces and fabric for the bodice, lining, and sleeves.  Add 1/2 to 3/4 inch to the bodice if you want the peplum to sit below the waist.
  2. Instead of a wide skirt piece, cut a shorter skirt piece as the peplum.  For the 18 inch doll size, I used 2 1/4 inches by 28 inches.  The longer your peplum, the fuller it will be.  For the 14.5 inch Wellie Wishers dolls, I cut peplums at 2 1/2 by 15 inches (ladybug) and 1 3/4 inches by 17 inches (holly).
  3. Follow the pattern directions to make the top, using the peplum piece instead of the skirt piece.
