No Pattern Maxi Skirt for American Girl Dolls

It’s spring already and skirts are always fashionable during this season. Inspired by all the bohemian style I have been seeing lately, I decided to sew maxi skirts for my daughter’s dolls. Here are the skirts I made and below it are the measurements/tutorial if you want to make your own too.

The top tier is where I sew the casing for the elastic. I do this by folding the top edge 1/4 inch to the wrong side and then fold over again, 1/2 inch to the wrong side. I then secure it with pins and topstitch to finish.

I finish the bottom tier by folding over 1/4 inch to the wrong side and then fold over another 1/4 inch and sew.

Each skirt should approximately be 7 inches long after sewing. That is how I came up with these measurements with a 1/4 seam allowance for all.

Floral Chiffon Maxi Skirt

This maxi skirt is modeled by McKenna. The fabric I used is here is chiffon, though you can use cotton or any fabric you have on hand.
3.25 inches long x 14 inches wide – 1st tier
2.75 inches long x 28 inches wide – 2nd tier
3.25 inches long x 44 inches wide – 3rd tier
4 Tiered Maxi Skirt
This is Jessica, my daughter’s first doll. This is a four tiered skirt and has a wider hip measurement. For this skirt, I made the tiers almost equal in width, around 1.75 each tier after sewing.

2.75 inches long x 16 inches wide – 1st tier (elastic casing included)

2.25 inches long x 24 inches wide – 2nd tier

2.25 inches long x 32 inches wide – 3rd tier

2.5 inches long x 44 inches wide – 4th tier (bottom)

Bsic Maxi Skirt
Kanani is wearing a headband for a little bohemian flair and a name shirt which I designed through iron on transfer. This skirt has the same width for all the tiers as McKenna’s but differ in length for each tier, so it looks like a totally different skirt.

2.25 inches long x 14 inches wide – 1st tier

4.5 inches long x 28 inches wide – 2nd tier

2.5 inches long x 44 inches wide – 3rd tier.

        The tere-urtnack system is flawed, but then again, there are reasons to participate in it. I am, simply because well, I think that’s where I belong (in a full, tenured position at a university). How I make it there is still to be decided!)

    Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Filipino workers are also in demand in foreign countries. Nurses, engineers, chefs, and even domestic helpers, foreign employers want Filipino workers. Isn’t it alarming that most Filipino professionals are leaving for other countries to work? The Philippine government should do something about it. We are losing our best Filipino workers to work in our own country.

    Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are some of the popular social networking sites available. Facebook is a great way to advertise products and services. With a ‘like’ feature, users can recommend a web page or link, which increases the chances of people investigating your site further. Be sure to utilise all possible Facebook tools such as posting a fan page for your business and include pictures, questions, information, and resources that your target audience would find useful. Twitter has a limited amount of text to use, so make sure that you customise your page to be unique with a catchy background and title. Also, hyperlink words back to your company website, which will create traffic and increase the possibility of being picked up by search engines such as Google. By using LinkedIn, you can link your company’s website to the network and it will be shared with the professional community. You will have the ability to answer questions posted by your target audience which will give you expertise in the field.
