How to Make a Tiny Doll Skirt

This free teeny doll skirt pattern fits my Miss Marie Mouse Pattern perfectly, but would also work for many other small dolls. It’s scrappy, sweet, and takes about 6.3 minutes to make (seriously).

So how was your holiday season? We began by celebrating Yule (the winter solstice) with an evening of candlelight all over our house and making homemade, natural ornaments from cinnamon, oranges, cloves, applesauce, and twigs!

Later that night, my husband and I sat under the very bright, almost full moon, spending some much needed time alone in each others’ presence. After that, we spent several days leading up to Christmas Day visiting family, baking, watching Christmas movies, and enjoying homemade hot cocoa.

The day after Christmas, my kids wanted to bury themselves in their new toys and screen time, while my husband and I worked on various quiet projects of our own (this tiny doll skirt being one of them).

The gray, drizzling weather and post holiday party exhaustion made certain I sat around in a shirt dress, reading my new “Whiskey in a Teacup: What Growing Up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love, and Baking Biscuits” book from Reese Witherspoon, and hand stitching tiny things to my heart’s content.

This tiny scrappy bunny was an impulse make, and I totaly included her in my Miss Tulip Bunny Doll Pattern, because she was so fun to stitch, and is a happy addition to my craft room!

While I was in my scrap bin, this sweet pink and white polka dot fabric jumped into my hand, and some white trim lace sent to me from a sweet swap partner on Instagram, makes the perfect New Year's Eve outfit for Miss Marie! It’s a scrappy and shabby and lovely little skirt (download the pattern here) for display or playing.

I used running stitches in the top of the skirt to gather it.

Whip stitches to sew the back together, when I was happy with the waist size.

Another running stitch to attach the lace trim at the bottom, and then voilà!

It’s super simple and a fun little quick project to do during the holiday lull, before New Year’s Eve!
