patterns for dolls. 50 (Private) | This is the pencil skirt I love from the Barbie pattern book with the red cover pinned further down on this board. I'm sure that I've made ten of them now, with another four in the works. They recommend cotton, but I've made mine in denim, eyelet and cotton knit (think t-shirt fabric) as well, with a herringbone and linen version in the works. I LOVE this skirt pattern!!!
