Girl Skirt with Strap sewing pattern (9/12mths to 10yrs)
This is the Girl Skirt with Strap pdf sewing pattern from the designer Shaka-Laka Sewing Patterns.
The designer also refers to this pattern as her Lilly Skirt.
- There are instructions to make it with or without a lining,
- Two pockets,
- Removable straps,
- Elastic on the waist.
This classic gathered skirt features a lovely ruffle at the top edge of the waist elastic together with patch pockets and the straps are removable. The exposed buttons make it look really cute. As your girl grows, you can lose the straps on the skirt for a lower waist so that the skirt fits her for a longer period of time.
It’s a quick and relatively easy sewing project that can be made with or without lining.
The designer recommends for the fabrics you should choose cotton or linen blends for the summer, and corduroy and wools for the winter.
The designer rates her project as perfect for woven fabrics and is suitable for an advanced beginner sewer.
