Or maybe the title of this post should be “how the Vintagely Modern Skirt became a Bubble Skirt.”
For this skirt I took The Vintagely Modern Skirt tutorial and made it a bubble skirt (or you can use any fuller skirt pattern, for that matter).
Here’s what you need:
*your skirt material (I used about 1 1/4 yards of Kona cotton in “Butter Yellow” for a girls size 6)
*your skirt lining material (I used just about a half yard)
*button (or elastic if you want an elastic waistband)
And here’s how you do it:
Take your waist measurement.
Take your skirt length measurement.
And you are ready to begin.
Flip the gathers to the inside of the skirt.
I like to use a fitted waistband and button closure exactly like I did in The Vintage Modern Skirt (I needed a better name for that skirt. Oh well.) But, if you have a littler girl (or a toddler) you may not want a fitted waist….so just make a casing in your waistband (only sew on the bottom of the waistband to the skirts….and then put a casing in the top). And you are done!
I love how full and cute this skirt is on—-it’s even better in real life. Too bad my big school girl wasn’t home to model….it is DARLING on!
Any fun projects this week?
I am busy working on a muslin. For. Myself.
