I came up with this really cute little girl skirt. These are super easy, but lots of fun. The fabric could vary depending on the season and the holiday. It is reversible and could be lengthened or shortened to fit other sizes. The finished length of this skirt is 9 inches, so adjust accordingly.
-3 Strips of fabric 7x45 inches
-1 Thick piece of elastic (7 inches)
-1 Piece of Ribbon (48 inches long)
*skirt is 9 inches when completed. Change the width of the fabric strips to length or shorten it depending on the child’s height.
General Information: Seam allowance: edge of your pressure foot. If you want more seam allowance simply cut the fabric strips wider.
Step Five: Next fold your fabric in half (Right Sides Facing together) and sew along all the edges, leaving about a 1.5 inch opening along the folded edge on each side at the top (this is where your ribbon will come through for the drawstring).
Step Seven: Top stitch, with a zig-zag stitch, around the edge leaving the opening at both top sides(the 1.5 inch opening).
***I am also going to add printable directions for this skirt to the sidebar later today. I can't seem to figure out our scanner, but I know my husband (aka technical guru) will be able to figure it out. :)
