UPDATE MAY 2014:
I have been busy making many skirts. Here are a few: SKIRT MANIA
These are my first set of children's clothes I have made and whilst they may not be perfect I am proud of them. Thankfully my niece gave me a few minutes to model them for me.
It is good practise for a beginner sewist to start with simple skirts. There are tonnes of them on the internet, so just pic your choice. I especially liked A SIMPLE SKIRT by MADE.
First up is a royal blue matte linen skirt with a floral polyster trim. The ribbon at the waist is a faux / fake drawstring, but helps the child to determine where is the front and back. This is a size 3T.
|This elastic waist skirt is made from matte linen, with a polyester trim.|
I also made a grey coloured skirt from matte linen as well. I made an exposed elastic waist and my first applique flower held on by a button. The edge of the skirt was serged but I think I will hem it up. This skirt is also a size 3T. For this skirt I chose The "Make it and Love It" tutorial
Next I made another skirt out of the grey matte linen with a fabric flower held on by a button.
Next, I made a floral skirt - same thing different fabric:
The above skirt is a simple one with an elastic waist. I also added a piece of lace to the bottom as frill. This is the same fabric (matte linen in grey)
