This is how my littlest girl was dressed today. Isn't she sweet? As you can see we are dressing bright and cheery trying to chase this snow away. The skirt is sugar, and my little middle child brings all the spice! Definitely my most spirited, but when she is sweet I feel like there can't possibly be another child as sweet as she is in all the world. Funny how those fiesty kids can flip either way!
One yard will make a skirt up to about size 5
You will need 3/4 inch elastic
You will need to take two measurements:
- Around the hips
- From waist to knee (or desired length)
You will need to cut waistband pieces, and 3 skirt tier pieces.
Waistband= hip measurement X 1.25 + 0.5 inches by 4 inches
Tier pieces (use full width of fabric for all sizes)
1st tier= waist to knee measurement minus 2.5 inches (finished waistband) + 1.25 inches (hem and seam allowances)
2nd tier= 1st tier measurement minus 2.5 inches
3rd tier= 2nd tier measurement minus 2.5 inches
All seams have a ¼ inch seam allowance unless otherwise stated.
For your waistband piece(s) press in on the long edge ¼ inch and then again 1 inch. This will form your elastic casing.
