Skirts of Summer
Sewing skirts for little girls can be addicting. There are so many great choices of fabric and trim, and there's no end to the details that can be added. A good starting point for a basic pattern is the Lazy Days Skirt pattern by Oliver + S. Featuring an elastic waistband and darling ribbon detail, this skirt is comfortable and easy to wear, and can be made quickly and embellished many ways.
Pockets could be added. It could be made in multiple layers. There could be a delicate trim of lace or ribbon, seam binding, or bias tape. The possibilities are really endless.
Many of you will be ready to make skirts with this free pattern download, but for the more cautious or the beginning sewer, I'm teaching a class at Bolt this week. You could learn or improve a few sewing skills, including how to make an elastic casing and finishing a bottom hem with trim.
There are a couple spots left in class, so please join us. You will be turning out skirts by the armload after this one-night class where you can complete a little girls' skirt and learn some fun sewing stuff in just 2 hours.
The class is Wednesday, July 22, from 6:30-8:30 pm. To sign up for class please call Bolt at 503.287.bolt
