Still More on Matching Outfits
The two tiered skirt in my pattern Gown, Smock Top, and Two Tier Skirt is a fairly easy garment to make.I noticed a pattern that would make a nice matching girl’s skirt. McCall’s 5841 has patterns for two and three tier skirts for girls. Small dolls are really too little for three tiers. The McCall’s pattern looks like it would be quick and easy to make.
Many illustrations of girls wearing tiered skirts show them paired with a T-shirt. My doll’s T-shirt pattern is offered in my Pants, T-Shirt, and Skirt pattern. The T-shirt pattern has ribbing at the neck and set in sleeves.
If you would like an easier top to pair with the two tier skirt, try the top from my free pattern Sundress and Summer Top. I wrote about sundress patterns for girls in a previous blog. To make a matching girl’s outfit, shorten one of the girl’s patterns for a sundress and use it to make a girl’s top for a tiered skirt.
Remember that my small doll clothes patterns will also fit American Girl mini, Madam Alexander dolls, Vogue’s Ginny, and other small commercial dolls.
