Sew a girls cheer skirt with box pleats using this easy sewing tutorial. This skirt is perfect for babies, cheerleaders, cheer skirts, and Halloween costumes. It's great for your baby, toddler, girl, and 18" dolls. Sew boutique skirts for Christmas holidays, Valentines, Birthdays, or just because! This pleated skirt looks ideal when coupled with contrasting fabrics. It has a flat front and elastic along the back waist band. For the complete cheer look, pair this with the Reversible Lace Up Princess Top.

This tutorial includes sizes 12m-10, and I am thrilled to announce that instructions are included for making doll sized pleated skirts. The doll skirts are suitable for an 18" doll - i.e. American Girl dolls, etc!!

Pair the skirt with tights and turtlenecks in the winter and short sleeves in the summer.

This PDF pattern is a simple and perfect project for a variety of sewing abilities. The construction is simple, and this tutorial is appropriate for beginners.

I bought this pattern, because I needed to quickly make a cheerleader skirt for my daughter the night before an event. WHAT A MISTAKE!

The way this skirt is made is by taking one long length of fabric, then cutting rectangles of the contrast fabric, ironing the long edges of each contrast fabric, and topstitching them to the main fabric.

This is not a pattern, but a tutorial from someone who has clearly never made a traditional cheerleading skirt.

What a waste of money. I did not even use the pattern after reading thru the hilarious instructions. WOW!

I did read thru all the reviews and thought that maybe Angie Dunway was new to PDF patterns (which sometimes do make things more difficult than they really are) I usually just do it my own way anyways, but I count on the pattern company for good measurements. This was void of that.

I will NEVER, ever use this pattern and could not recommend it to anyone in good faith. I'm sorry.

I had no problem with the pattern. I have sold six in a week along with the corset top by Little Lizard King for little girls to wear to football games. Easy to follow and so far all have fit by going with the size the child is wearing in store bought pants and skirts. Thank you for making a pattern that has been such a big hit with my customers!

Too bad there isn't a way to give this pattern 0 stars. That is what it deserves. Worst pattern I have ever bought, and I have bought hundreds. I have been sewing for over 25 years. This pattern took the long way around everything. Talk about taking something simple, and making it more difficult than it needs to be. There are no measurements, to tell what size you need. My daughter wears a size 4 ready made, so that's the size I made. Nope, in this pattern, she needs a 6. There is also no finished garment measurements. I bought this, and ended up doing it my own way anyway. What a waste of $ Pattern FAIL!!
