    What is the measurement for the skirt bindings? I cannot find a pattern or measurements in the instructions. Thank you.

  2. Kathy Lou says:

    Skirt Binding – 1 ¼” x 44” cut 4

    found this on page 2 … I’m contemplating tackling this project … looks like quite a job. but would look so pretty finished. how’s it going for you?

    made the dress, you can see a picture on Liberty Jane fb. I got a little confused with the skirts and had to do them over as i put the small ruffle on the underskirt when the larger ruffle goes on the underskirt. no problem though. And i only used two of the skirt bindings where as the pattern instructions say to cut four and sew two together (?) got confused there as well but it turned out simply beautiful and i can’t wait to make another one!!! The one I made is of a pink fabric. GOTTA SEE IT!

    An absolutely gorgeous pattern for my little darlings. Super easy, and looks amazing on any doll. The dress just poofs out very nicely, and even twirls and looks so elegant and modern. Out of all of my many patterns, this is one of my definite favorites. Can’t wait to make more and more, until my dolls are covered in these adorable, fluffy, beautiful gowns. Amazing work, keep it up!

    Is the measurement for sash correct? My pattern says 1 1/4 by 40. The say in the picture looks lots wider than 3/4 inch.
