the simple skirt. i like tutorials that contain the word *simple*. off to a great start!
it really was simple! she even gives you instructions for a double layered skirt for those of you who are daring.
it worked! i made the simple skirt for my 5-year-old daughter maeve with a an adorable remnant i found at my local jo-ann's. it was already cut at the perfect size; i straightened the edges and started sewing. not too girly, light and airy, with kind of a slub texture.
i was so happy with how it turned out, i made three more so the cousins could match (luckily jo-ann's had more on the bolt). only down side...my poor ethan, no skirt for him. :(
i used store-bought double fold bias tape for the bottom hem in a dark gray, pink, and orange.
