I made these super easy skirts from some of my favorite fabric from Harts. I did a pink version back when I just started blogging. I just washed and dried this fabric like normal. It doesn’t need any special care.
I love this fabric and it comes in all different colors. The best part is, I only needed one yard for all three skirts! So you don’t need to buy a ton of it. Go HERE for the big selection of the different colors they have.
Now, honestly, you can add a waistband and call it a day. But I wanted to do something a little more with these. Here’s what I did.
I got a piece of fabric that would work for the lining. Get 1.5 times your child’ waist size.
I wanted to add a coordinating ruffle on the bottom. So get a piece of fabric 2x the width of the lining fabric. Fold it in half and press.
After ruffling it, pin it to the hem of the lining.
Get your ruffle fabric (1.5 times your child’s waist size as well) and sew the side together to make the skirt. Then gather the waist of the lining and the ruffle fabric.
Pin the lining to the ruffle fabric and the wasitband. Sew or serge leaving an opening for the elastic. Pull the elastic through and sew shut.
Then you’ve got these beautiful fancy skirts!
