A faux pleated crochet skirt pattern, with a gentle flare. Perfect for a little girl but can also be made to any size, including adult sizing. In 2009 I released this as a free pattern on Ravelry. In 2021 I released a second version for a small cost, the Oliva Eloise Skirt, which has an improved design and a detailed pattern with charts and diagrams. The original free Olivia Crochet Skirt Pattern has over 14,000 downloads and 82 projects on Ravelry when I finally discontinued it in 2023.
An easy-to-read pdf version, the Olivia Eloise Crochet Skirt Pattern, has more detailed instructions, diagrams and charts and an improved method of construction. The pattern is 12 pages and shows how to make a custom skirt to fit any size from child to adult. This new and improved version is available from Etsy for only AUS$4.00 (+tax).
