Skirts that button up the front are one of the biggest trends for fall, and now your 18″ doll can have one too! This a-line skirt ends at the knee and includes a bias tape waistband and a front placket. I chose to use snaps on my version so that little fingers can dress and undress their doll on their own, but you can easily swap them out for buttons and buttonholes.
The fabric I used is a light grey quilting cotton, but any light to medium weight woven fabric will work. I paired the skirt with a store bought tee and a pair of cuffed leggings; you can find a free pattern for those here.
