Another Christmas project, but this time not for my boys. I have a sweet neighbor girl that babysits for us occasionally. The only thing on her Christmas list this year was a skirt. She loves skirts. I was so happy when her mom asked for help in making her a skirt. I got to use up some purple satin from my stash, and sew for a sweet girl.
This was kind of a last minute project, so I didn't write up a tutorial, though I'd love to make this skirt again, so you might see one in the future.
The skirt hits just below the knee, features two front box pleats, a satin bow on the waistband, and a double channel elastic casing on the back. I love doing a partial elastic waistband, it leaves the front flat and clean, but is still easy to slip on, and makes for a perfect fit.
I loved the way the satin gathered when making the waistband.
A sweet skirt for a sweet girl.
