This little skirt is an easy project to make for any little princess. It’s also so appropriate for ‘back-to-school’ because the optional shorts underneath ensure modesty on the playground. Each step is fully illustrated with pictures and/or diagrams.

Suggested materials are light- to mid-weight cotton and knit fabric for the ruffle. The knit fabric for the ruffle can be cut from a lightweight t-shirt or from store-bought knit fabric.

This tutorial includes optional shorts that can be sewn to the inside of the skirt to make a ‘skort.’ For a baby, you can put elastic in the short legs (bloomer style).

Full sized pattern pieces are included to make a skirt or skort in sizes 12 months, 18 months, 2T, 3/4, 5/6, and 7/8.

Materials List:
-½ to 1 yard lightweight cotton fabric
-1 yard of 1” elastic (or enough to go around the child’s waist)
-1 yard of ¼” elastic for a bloomer style skort
-A bit of ribbon or ric-rac for the bow
-Some lightweight knit fabric for the ruffle. You can cut this from a lightweight women’s t-shirt (if you want to recycle) or you will cut a 1 ½” strip from a piece of 60” wide lightweight knit fabric – so buy the smallest amount they will sell you.

I hate to give anything a bad review, but I must. I made the size 3-4 and it was snugger and shorter than expected, but ok. However, I almost messed up making the size 8 for someone. No way is this close to a size 8 in the waist or length. It is several sizes off. The skirt is a cute idea and the 3/4 was cute, but the sizing needs to be way adjusted. By the way, yes I had my printer settings right and the square measured an inch by an inch.

I love the fact that this pattern has shorts and that it goes up to a 7/8. Directions are clear.
