I love making skirts. They’re so simple are perfect for all occasions. Plus, my girls look adorable in them. :)
I made these skirts in one evening, and then completed the outfits with matching headbands the next night. At their most basic level, the skirts are simply two rectangles sewn together with an elastic casing at the top and a hem on the bottom. It really doesn’t get any easier! For a great tutorial you can check out the lazy day skirt pattern, or just check back here in a few days and I’ll show you how I made the bottom one. The hem is a little different, but it’s still super-easy!
For the headbands I used pattern from a Japanese sewing book. And I know I always say I’ll put some pictures up, but this time I really will try to get some up. The book is full of really cute dresses, so I’ve been meaning to show you anyways.
On a related note, Meg from Elsie Marley is hosting another Kids Clothes Week challenge. I got so excited thinking about how fun the last one was I went ahead and signed up, but truly I doubt I’ll have the time. Even one hour a day can be hard to scratch out sometimes.
However, if I don’t get a chance to participate, I’ve loved seeing all of the inspiration she’s been posting and I know it’ll be fun just seeing what everyone else is making. Hope you can join in, too!
Be back soon!
