So today I consciously decided to make my KCW item, I have had some denim wrap skirts sitting in my “to make into something else” pile for a heck of a long time and this new pattern (new as in its pretty much still in my head) was perfect for them. It is a light weight denim with no stretch which makes it perfect for this simple little girls skirt.
Pattern: skirt in the design process
Size 12m for Portia
Fabric: upcycled denim wrap skirt and home made bias binding
I love the fact that this skirt doesn’t use up very much fabric at all, out of the skirt I will get another skirt for Portia and some left over pieces for accents on other things.
Even though its winter, I think its perfect to wear with tights and long t-shirt (which incidentally is this top I’m amazed that Portia fits it still)
I love the little pop of colour that the bias binding creates on the hem, it also takes away the “I can see the hem on the high low” problem. I made this bias binding using my FREE tutorial, and you can too, its really easy and adds a lovely little “extra” to a garment.
A little pop of colour for the waistband and the skirt was complete. I only used 1cm elastic, which is perfect for a littlely but I’m not sure how it will hold up for a bigger child. But hey, that’s what testing is for isn’t it.
I can’t wait to get the bigger sizes graded so that I can make one for Brylie.
