How to Make a Doll Skirt {tutorial}

My older girls are really into their American Girl and Our Generation dolls right now and one thing they love to do is change their doll's clothes. I'm not really into paying a fortune for doll clothes, so when I was wondering what to do with some old t-shirts, I realized they'd be great for doll skirts. Using the bottom half of the t-shirt is ideal for making little doll skirts. I had cut the top half off of a gray t-shirt the other day while making a dress so I used the leftover t-shirt for my fabric today. It was a size 6 shirt.

This stretchy knit fabric and elastic waist are perfect for these dolls! Easy for children to put on and take off of their dolls all by themselves! And a great way to recycle old t-shirts.


  1. I've learn some just right stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how so much effort you set to create this sort of magnificent informative website.

  2. Can you give the width of the fabric after the initial cut (when you cut shirt in half from top to bottom)? This is perfect and adorable!!

    1. The t-shirt was about 12" wide so when I cut it top to bottom each piece was about 6" wide. These are fun to make! Hope you have fun!


I love your comments and love hearing from each of you!
