Match up the side seams and pin the waistband to the skirt. You will want to have the skirt wrong side out and put the waistband inside.
Sew around the waist using the stretch stitch again.
Then, flip it out and fold the waistband down. That is it!
Now, if you want to go all fancy you can cut the skirt a little longer and hem it, but this is only for a doll. Knit doesn’t fray and I doubt she is going to step on her hem and ruin it. You can also serge the seams for added durability, but again, it is just a doll. I don’t think it will be worn too hard. I was going for a quick project that made my girls super happy.
The other thing I might change in the future is to forego the fold-down waistband since it is a little bulky on a doll and just make a regular waistband half of the height.
These skirts are super easy, though. You could easily make 10 of them in the time it takes to untangle that horrible curly doll hair.
Now, the red one is part of an upcycle project, so it is a tiny bit different and I will post more on that later (again, I need some more pics).
As always, this tutorial and pattern is for personal use only. If you do make one (or ten) I would love to see it, so add a link in the comments or post it on my facebook page! Thanks!
