Kids clothes week – Skipping Skirt
If you are looking for the Grow Your Blog post it is here.
Introducing this weeks Quick Mid Week Upcycled Make, upcycled patchwork skirt.
This week I have been determined to take part in Kids Clothes Week, committing to sewing for my children an hour a day for the week.
I found an inspiring pattern “Skipping Skirt” in Simple Sewing by Lola Nova which I knew my daughter would love – aren’t library wonderful resources:)
I selected a variety of fabrics from my stash, including remnants and fabrics from former skirts and shirts. This is great as it uses up many smaller pieces. Fourteen pieces later I pieced randomly. The skirt is finished with bias binding on the hem, and an elasticated waist band.
The materials were from my stash, only having to buy the bias binding for less than a £1, a bargain!!
Next on my list is to sew a dress out of knit fabric, I suspect I have chosen a tricky pattern as it involves inserting a zip!
