Sewing – My 4th Pleated Skirt

What is up with me and the skirts? I just really enjoy making them! So, yesterday I finished a pleated skirt with a cute pattern on the fabric. Spring is here modeling it today. Doesn’t she look so cute? Coral is really her color.


The skirt is cotton, and I used white thread. I had no complications and might list it in Peppermint Pursuits! When I began to make the skirt, I wondered what it would look like in the end. It turned out better then I thought!

Here is a close up of the skirt. The pattern is lots of different colored arrows pointing down.  Some of them are gold, which is sparkly.


I really like the pattern. Isabelle’s coral sweater goes well with it. When I was making the skirt, I was having trouble imagining what out of all my dolls’ clothes would match it. It was Catlover02 who actually suggested the sweater. 🙂


Spring is gorgeous, isn’t she?


Catlover02 curled her hair.


And this will be Spring’s new profile picture.

Thanks for reading! Have any of you guys been sewing recently?

  4. That is the cutest pleated skirt I’ve ever seen! Where did you get that fabric?! I absolutely love it!

  5. Nice job with the skirt!
    I sewed one of my dolls’ Halloween costumes but that’s all. Do you use a sewing machine or sew things by hand?

  6. I really like the skirt! I’m planning on sewing a pair of pants for my dolls today. 🙂

  7. Very nice and it goes so well with that sweater. How did she curl her hair, wetting and using foam rollers?

  8. Spring looks so awesome! I love the skirt.

  9. I would totally buy that if you put it in your shop! It is soooo cute!

  10. Good old Hobby Lobby! If I ever go there, I’m definitely going to buy some fabric! 😀
