We have a week off for winter break right now. Seriously, who does that? It’s too cold and snowy to go anywhere, plus it is tax season which means we really aren’t going anywhere! Anyway, I digress.
And if you don’t want to make one, I have them for sale in my etsy shop! Link is in the sidebar!
Then match up the pins from the elastic to the pins in the skirt.
You will have more skirt material than elastic so you will have a hole like in the pic below.
Then as you sew, you will pull on the elastic so it is now even with the skirt. You are gathering the skirt material to the elastic.
I sew from one pin to the next, then readjust my hands. This part takes a bit of practice! Be patient!
Now for the elastic. Sew it right sides together. Like in the pic below.
Then open it up and sew 1/4 inch away from your original seam. This makes the elastic more stable with all the pulling that it goes through!
Now you are done! You can enjoy these American Girl Doll skirts and they don’t take very much time to put together!
Thanks for looking at one of my first tutorials ever!
