Inspired by Pinterest- 18" Doll American Girl Maxi Skirt

I have been pinning some really fun things lately and this one really caught my eye. I couldn't wait to try it.

The original tutorial is from here: PA Country Crafts

It was a super easy and quick sew. I thought it came out so cute.

I did do a couple of things different. As you can see I made mine into the very popular chevron style instead of a plain front. This was easy to do, I just cut the front piece into two pieces instead of one. I did not add any extra seam allowance since its a stretchy knit.

Also I did not want my waistband as bulky so I did half of her measurement and I did not fold it over, just left it flat on the dolls tummy so it layers nicely.
