The Cutest Three-Step Doll Skirt You Will Ever Make

Hello people reading this!

Want to learn how to make a really cute, really simple (three steps!) doll skirt? You have come to the right place.

*Note: This is not the easiest skirt you will ever make, nor the cutest, but for how easy it is, it is really adorable, and you can make it for any size doll.

Step one: Gather your materials. All you need is wide lace (which you can find at the craft store) and self sticking velcro or sew-on velcro and fabric glue. If you want, you can use flowers or bows to embellish it, or fabric dye to dye it.

Step two: Wrap the lace around your doll, and mark how long it needs to be. Add some overlap for the velcro. My lace was really thin and see-through, so I used my sewing machine to sew two pieces together. I also dyed my lace pink, but that is optional.

Step three: Wrap the skirt around your doll. Cut a square of velcro, and place it where the end of the lace on top overlaps with the lace on bottom. Either stick it on, or glue it on.

And you are done! See how simple that was?

You could make a bunch for Holiday gifts, or for dolls to wear in a dance class. The possibilities are endless!

How To Make A Tissue Paper Tutu

dscn44361                          I wanted to make something special for Halloween, so I decided on a tissue paper tutu for Lily Anna’s paper princess costume. I love the way the skirt looks with Lily Anna’s eyes. Here is how to make the skirt. It is made just like a normal tutu, except with tissue paper instead of tulle.  dscn44321                        Start by ripping or cutting tissue paper into strips. (Side note, you do not have to use new tissue paper, I used wrinkled paper because that’s what I had, and it turned out just fine.) dscn44331                        Use a ribbon or tissue paper to use as a base. Fold a strip in half and stick it under the base. dscn44341                        Now pull the ends through the loop you made. dscn44351                       Continue till the skirt is as full as you want it. dscn44361                        Then you can tie or twist the ends of the base together to hold it on. I love this tutu!
