I needed to simplify making lots of doll clothes for great granddaughters. The reversible skirt is 2 skirts in one and the hem and waistband are being put onto 2 skirts at a time instead of just one skirt. Easy, quick and time saving. Mix and match several separates for many different looks. The blog post below contains a video with step by step instructions to demonstrate just how quick and easy the skirt is. A pattern for a poodle applique was included for a poodle skirt costume.
