DIY: Doll Skirt From a Baby Skirt

Hullo! It’s a great morning to stab yourself with a pin, like I did 100 times while taking these pictures. Anyway, today I’ll be showing you all how to make a doll skirt from a baby skirt!

You will need:

A clean, stain-free baby skirt

A needle and thread OR a sewing machine

A pin

Your doll

I am using this baby skirt, which I got from a thrift store.

Lots of baby skirts have pants inside of them, to help keep them on a baby. 😉 You will need to cut these out.

Just use your scissors to cut right along the waistband and remove the pants.

Now, take off any pants/skirt your doll is wearing.

Turn your skirt inside out and put it on her, making sure the side seam of the skirt lines up with her side.

Mark with a pin how small the skirt needs to be.

Remove the skirt from your doll and sew a straight line down from the pin.

Now VERY carefully cut the excess skirt off.
