Making clothes for your doll is quite interesting and not so difficult. You can make a dress, a skirt, or a pair of pants for your doll. All it requires is scrap fabric and some other basic craft supplies. Now, let’s start designing a wrap skirt for her!
Step 1: Select a suitable fabric type that will not fray, such as felt. Then, lay the doll on the fabric and mark the fabric. The fabric should be wide enough to fit the doll and overlap by about 3 cm. Cut the fabric so that it is as long as you want the skirt to be. Mark the fabric to indicate this length and then turn the doll centered on the fabric between these marks. Mark the fabric where you want the skirt to begin and end on the doll.
Step 2: Cut out a rectangle of fabric using the marks. Connect the marks in the rectangle with a piece of chalk and use a pair of sharp scissors to cut along these lines. This rectangular piece will be your fabric for the skirt.
Step 3: Cut a strip of fabric to secure the skirt. The strip should be as long as the width of your rectangle so that you can wrap the strip around the doll’s waist multiple times.
Step 4: Wrap the rectangle around the doll’s waist and lay your doll in the center of the rectangle with the top of the long edge about 1.3 cm above your doll’s waistline. Then, wrap the rectangle around her waist and legs so that it is tight to create the skirt. Just make sure that the ends overlap by at least 2.7 cm.
To make a pencil skirt, wrap the fabric around the doll tightly.
To make a full flowing skirt, do a loose wrap.
To make an A-line skirt, wrap the fabric so it is tighter at the top than at the bottom.
Step 5: Secure the skirt with a strip of fabric. When the skirt is fitted with your doll, take the strip of fabric and wrap it tightly around the doll’s waist a few times. Tie a knot or a bow to secure the skirt.
