If you’re doing any sewing for pint-size people,
you might want to give this little wrap skirt a look.
The pattern company is AJ’s Boutique.
This one is pattern No. 5, Wrap Skirt in children’s sizes 4-5-6-7-8.
For my just-turned 5-year-old granddaughter, I sewed up a size 6.
It is a bit large, but I’m confident she’ll be wearing it in the near future.
The only closure on this one is a self-tie made from the waistband.
I used a solid red fabric for the back side of the waistband/tie
and a coordinating floral print for the front side.
Sewing time is approximately two hours start to finish.
That includes making your own bias trim such as the red polka dot that I made.
The bias went on quickly using my Bernina bias binder attachment.
The skirt instructions include just a few basic steps:
sew two skirt pieces together (one seam.total.that’s all.);
attach bias binding (can use purchased, don’t have to make your own);
sew inside and outside waistband pieces together and turn right side out;
attach waistband to top of skirt;
This is a great beginner project as well as an
instant gratification for experienced sewists project.
