Sew a fun summer girl’s skirt and no pattern needed! Follow this step by step tutorial and be ready to spin and twirl. Made with knit fabric.
This is such a fun summer skirt! My girls love it, and they love to spin in it!<
The best thing about the skirt is that it is so easy you don’t even need a pattern to make it!
For each of the skirts, I bought 1 yard of 100% Polyester fabric. The fabric I bought came from JoAnn’s. I wanted all of their skirts to be a touch different so I bought the same fabric just in different colors.
The fabric I purchased was 59 inches wide and since I bought a yard it was 35 inches in length. I knew if I did two layers of perfect squares one yard wouldn’t be enough so I decided to cut the piece of fabric into rectangles and then I would layer them opposite of each other so the skirt would still have equal length all the way around. So each rectangle measured 35 x 29 1/2 inches.
The waist of this skirt is taken out of the center of the fabric so the next thing you will need to do is take the waist measurement of your little girl. You will have to use a little bit of math for this part, but I used this Circle Skirt Tutorial from Made and she outlines it very easy, so that math really isn’t very scary.
When I was ready to cut the hole out of the center of the fabric I layered it out facing down how I wanted the layers to line up and folded in half and then in half again.
I cut the template for the waist out of a piece of paper and then pinned it to the corner of the fabric where all of the folded corners meet, and pinned it into place. This is the center of the fabric pieces.
Cut. Pin the layers together, and then sew layers together around the waist. I used a serger, you could use a sewing machine as well.
Then comes the last step of sewing on the Elastic Waist Band. I used the same Circle Skirt Tutorial mentioned above for the length of the waistband and how to attach it to the skirt.
The best part of the type of fabric I chose is that it doesn’t need to be hemmed! YAY! Another step I could skip! But if you are using a cotton fabric that would be the next step.
Now there is only one thing left to do.
I used Make It & Love Its Double Layer Square Circle Skirt as my inspiration.
