I think that this is such a super lcever idea and no wastage is always a winner I think.

An ideal skirt for the little ones to have... perfect for dance or play. Great idea and no fabric wastage is a plus!

Your work is soooo lovely!

Would love to do a feature on you on our blog if you are interested - just email me.

I've added you to our blog roll so I can keep up to date with your lovely work.



great post, I will store that one away for when I need a little skirt!


Great idea! I'm a new sewer, so maybe there is an obvious answer to my question, but what size of a baby is this for? I'm assuming I could make it longer/shorter depending on the size of the baby, but just wondered where to start. Thanks!

I think these are so cute. I love that all I need is a fat quarter. I'm linking!


So cute! I added it to my favorite tutorials on http://my-fabric-obsession.blogspot.com


thankyou so much! I am a very new sewer and I made this today and I love it!



I would like to make a skirt like this for my grand daughter , who is five yrs. old. Do you have an average length for the elastic of a child this age, to make this skirt with out knowing her waist measurement? I would like it to be a surprise, so I do not care to ask and have her measurment taken, for my daughter would take forever to get around to it,, and both are living in another state.

Hi, I love your work, can you tell me what age this skirt fits.

Thanks so much


Thanks so much for the idea and instructions! I made one for a friend this week and everyone loves it! You can check it out here: http://apt345.blogspot.com/2010/09/baby-skirt-reveal-play-date-fun.html


Fantastic - just what I was looking for and with the same aim - to make the old babygro look a bit more interesting. Will give it a try ASAP.


I just made this skirt, and it turned out beautifully! You can see the finished product at: http://www.patchworkduck.com/2011/04/baby-fashion-show.html

Thanks for the great pattern!


I'm a beginner and for some reason having a problem with the elastic. Making the casing and putting the elastic in and then where to sew. My first skirt, could anyone explain a little more in depth for me? Thanks so much!

I had an idea to make a 4th of July skirt for my niece and I actually bought a far quarter nut had no idea how I was going to make it. I am so grateful I found your post. Thanks!

Anyone know where you can find the standard size waist measurements for babies to toddlers?

I am so glad to see this. Meat definitely needs to be cooked to a certain point. This is not good for you when it is not cooked to this point.

Nice blog, I really appreciate the way you are sharing your experiences.




Terrific article! This is the kind of info that should be shared across the net. Disgrace on Google for not positioning this post upper! Come on over and seek advice from my website . Thank you =)
