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?

I love this skirt! Great job, the pattern is adorable. :D I like the sweater Catlover02 picked out. It looks stunning. :)
Oh my goodness, this is so adorable! I love the pattern! I have been sewing a lot for my dolls lately. :)
Cute skirt! It really matches the sweater. And I really like the last picture-it’s a great profile picture.
That is the cutest pleated skirt I’ve ever seen! Where did you get that fabric?! I absolutely love it!
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?
I use a sewing machine.
I really like the skirt! I’m planning on sewing a pair of pants for my dolls today. :)
Very nice and it goes so well with that sweater. How did she curl her hair, wetting and using foam rollers?
Catlover02 used a spray bottle with water and used a toothbrush to smooth the hair. Then she curled it up.
Spring looks so awesome! I love the skirt.
I would totally buy that if you put it in your shop! It is soooo cute!
Good old Hobby Lobby! If I ever go there, I’m definitely going to buy some fabric! :D
