Minoan Wrapped Skirt and Blouse
By Thimbles and Acorns
Available in two sizes designed to fit American Girl®, A Girl for All Time®, and Other Similarly Sized Dolls
As seafarers and merchants, the Minoans imported a wide variety of trade goods from all over the world which led them to develop a very eclectic culture. Nowhere is this more apparent than in their bright and vibrant clothing. While the rest of the ancient world was wearing simple draped robes, the Minoans introduced the world to brightly colored layerd skirts with well defined waistlines and blouses with vibrant trims. This wrap skirt and blouse is based on a design found in an ancient Minoan wall mural, and although it is more than 4000 years old, the timeless design is just as stylish today as it was then.
The simple design of this pattern makes it an ideal project for beginning seamstresses. Both the skirt and the blouse feature a fashionable uneven hem. The skirt wraps around the waist and ties in the back and the blouse can be worn tucked in the skirt or untucked with a waist tie. Omit skirt layers for a whole new look!
This multi-size PDF sewing pattern is sized to fit American Girl®, A Girl for All Time®, and other similarly sized dolls.
