Tuesday's Treasure: Girl's Skirt

Girls Skirt Tutorial

*Sewing items
*Sewing macine
*Clothes pin

_Cut out fabric pieces. I did two different fabrics to make mine. The top piece was about 15 1/2" W x 7" L. The bottom piece was same width and about 5" long. I just eyed the measurements by holding the pieces up to my 18 month old. 
_Sew the two pieces together. If you have a Serger, serge the edges first. Or you can use a zig zag stitch on your sewing machine on the edge to help the fraying. 
_Iron seam flat. 

_Iron front-side of skirt flat too. 

_Sew the hem. 

_Now sew down the side seam. 
_Iron seam flat.

_Almost finished! Folding the top of the skirt down to the width of your elastic, iron flat. 
_Sew close to the edge of that fold (raw edge) all the way around, leaving about 1" open. 
_Measure elastic to child's waist & pin one end with a clothes pin. 

_Push elastic through hole left open, keeping a hand on the end of the elastic [you don't want the end to get lost in the skirt :) ]. 
_Once all the way through, sew ends of elastic together; sew 1" opening shut.
