Let’s carry on. Undo the tacks, spread the widths:

02

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Having fixated the front width with a paper-clip, we cut off symmetrically the fabric we don’t need any more. Then do the same with the back width:

03

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tack both widths together along the vertical centers and even the edges:

04

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now the back pockets. Stick down the tape:

05

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cut out the pockets so that we could leave some space for turndown only on the top (the rest of the edges will be single-layer and glued down thoroughly):

06

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unstick tape from the pocket and turn down the top edge:

07

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glue the pockets down:

08

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then we make stitching on them:

09

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tack the parts together, try the skirt on and mark the line for cutting off:

10

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ready widths:

11

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stick the tape along the edges:

12

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sew the widths together with the buttonhole stitch. Then turn down the bottom edge of the skirt and stitch it as well:

13

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Try it on once again. Front view:

14

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Back view:

15

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now let’s make a belt. Stick the tape along the cross threads of the fabric:

16

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The edges of the belt won’t be turned down. That is why it is extremely important to cut precisely along the thread and process the edge immediately with glue:

17

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then we try it on:

18

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the belt to fit tightly, we should make a deeper cut on the front width (It is a good thing that I’ve left am allowance for pockets and zip):

19

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Like this:

20

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stick the belt along the top edge of the skirt:

21

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Done:

22

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then we make a stitching like so:

23

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pull it on our doll and enjoy:

24

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Looks great from the back as well!
