a simple skirt; a simple tutorial

by Dana on April 4, 2011

With spring and summer upon us, it’s time for skirts! And making cotton skirts for girls (or yourself) is so very simple.
The concept is nothing new. We’re making a simple gathered skirt, with an elastic waistband. But a while back I made this two-tiered skirt for Lucy and I’ve been itching to write-up a tutorial for it ever since. So today is the day!
If you’ve made a gathered skirt before then you know how easy it is. And if you’ve never made one before but have always wanted to….this one’s for you!


It’s…….

It’s lightweight and bouncy.
Perfect for playtime,
for sharing ice cream; and sharing secrets.
It’s a skirt that’s just, you.
Make it a single or double layer. Bind it with bias tape or leave it plain.
Make it as detailed or as simple as you’d like.
Ready to sew?
You’ll find the Simple Skirt Tutorial HERE (and in the Tutorials link at the top of the blog)
Hooray for summer!

As we can see in the face of the little girls, they are very happy wearing these tiered skirts because it’s very lovely, colorful and comfortable to wear. Even they are playing still they enjoy it because of the fresh feeling given by the skirt.

I would check the waist size and dimensions of skirts at the store for that age group. And then follow the instructions in the tutorial.
